You might remember when the Internet was abuzz over the Nessie Ladle ($14)—a kitchen utensil designed to create the illusion that the mysterious aquatic monster is lurking in your soup. People loved the item so much that the Nessie Ladle now has some family members: Momma Nessie the colander ladle ($15), and more recently Baby Nessie, a tea infuser. To use Baby Nessie, simply place tea leaves into the body of the little monster and dunk it right into a mug of hot water. Voilà: Your cuppa is now a miniature Loch Ness.
