A skinny mouse for your favorite monument

The "Slimouse" returns, but now with international kitsch.


There's a "super-slim" USB mouse that's making its way around the gadget blogs, but Crave humbly submits that we wrote about this product in its original form more than a year ago, from a different distributor. But there's actually a reason to post this item, other than to note the pervasive recycling of product announcements that befalls all of us. The "Slimouse," still in need of a second M, now comes in scores of designs including historical vertical monuments--the Eiffel Tower, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, and the Transamerica Pyramid among them. Kitschy, yes, but better than a sourvenir keychain.
