Disadvantages: adult themed
I've just reviewed both the Paladone Happy Man Bottle Stopper and the Paladone Happy Man Corkscrew that I received as gifts on my hen weekend. When I brought them home from Dublin with me my husband ('to be' at the time) loved them and thought that they were brilliant. So for Christmas later that year I decided to get him the matching Paladone Happy Man Bottle Opener as a small stocking filler. I bought the bottle opener from Amazon, and I seem to remember paying around £5 for it.
We already had loads of bottle openers, and certainly didn't need another one, however I knew that he would love this, and that it would be brilliant at parties. We've had loads of use out of this, and he always gets brought out to open bottle of beers when friends are over. He's always a talking point, and I know that lots of our friends have gone on to buy there own little man after using ours!
He stands about 8cm tall, and he's made from a hard red plastic. He's standing legs and arms akimbo, and he has a huge grin on his little red plastic face. He does actually stand upright on his two little feet, and he doesn't wobble or fall over, despite his rather large protrusion! His rather large protrusion, his manhood, is the actual bottle opener part of him, and it is unfeasibly large! His manhood i.e. the bottle opener part juts out proudly from his little body, well 'little body' in comparison to the size of the bottle opener! The bottle opener part has a rounded end, oooh er, and it has a quite a large chunk cut out of the bottom to house the metal bottle opening mechanism. He even has cute little rounded bum cheeks!
To use the bottle opener just grip the little man and then place his manhood and the cut out chunk containing the actual bottle opening mechanism over your beer bottle cap, hook the back edge (the edge nearest the little mans belly) of the metal bottle opener under the lip of the beer bottle cap and then flip the little man upwards and forwards and the beer bottle cap will just flip off. Quick and easy.
He isn't dishwasher safe, I normally just wipe his plastic body and the metal bottle opener part over with a piece of kitchen roll. We've had him for quite a few years now and he's still in perfect condition, the bottle opener 'protrusion' is still very firmly attached to his little plastic body.
He's definitely a quirky and fun, albeit slightly rude, novelty gift. He's the perfect stocking filler for someone that you know would appreciate him. All three of the Paladone Happy Men are available for around £5 each on Amazon, and you can also get a twin pack containing both the corkscrew and the bottle stopper for around £9, so they aren't expensive. I'd definitely recommend them!
