Grandpa Simpson might wear an onion on his belt but Japanese design studio LIFE does him one better with the Chupa Chups Design Wood Case. Worn on one's belt and secured with leather & brass snaps, this wooden wonder keeps your emergency lollipop within arm's reach.
Crafted with either cream or dark brown saddle leather, the snazzy sucker-keepers feature a hinged, hollow, spherical chamber precisely sized to carry a single Chupa Chups lollipop. You won't find any cheesy plywood here, just real African Mahogany weighing in at 14.4 grams (about 1/2 an ounce) per piece.
The Chupa Chups Design Wood Case is handmade by the designers at LIFE, a division of Hiroshima-based SweetD Inc., and joins a number of the company's other intriguing wood products such as Chocoball cases, smartphone and iPhone holders, wood & metal jewelry and much more.
Each Chupa Chups Design Wood Case is priced at 4,200 yen (about $52.50) each and custom engraving can be requested though made-to-order items cannot be returned for a full refund. (via Gigazine)
