Pink is a lot of things. It’s cute. It’s sweet. It’s girly. To some of us, it’s addictive, and to others, it’s cliche. Today, though, we’ve rounded up a quintet of objects in pink that we never would have expected to find, and the contrast between each item’s utility and appearance actually makes us want them all.
Apollo Precision Tools, for instance, makes something we’ve coined the “bombshell toolkit” (pictured above) for its brassy black and pink appearance and the fact that…well, it’s literally a toolkit with more than a dozen components.
The same company also manufactures a gardening kit — whether you’ve got a green thumb or not, you’ve got to admit it makes you look twice:
Similarly, the toolmakers at Kelvin have produced a sleek pink 23-in-one tool called, appropriately enough the “Kelvin 23.” It’s perfect for the girl (or guy, to be fair) who’s short on space or simply doesn’t want the fuss and clutter of an entire tool kit or shed:
And although it’s not a fun subject to talk about, it’s a fact of life that personal safety is something to be considered. The folks at Mace help us look at things through rose-colored glasses, though, with their shiny pink pepper spray gun. It may be cute, but we certainly wouldn’t want to face its business end:
To end things on a much lighter note, English housewares company Rockett St. George created this irresistible pink pair of scissors which, when placed in its holster, looks just like a bunny.
Cuddly and cute but sharp and strong at the same time? Yep, that’s something we can get behind.
