There aren’t many bath products that are also fun and educational – but then there’s Archaeology Soap.

These colourful bars of soap consist of four distinct layers made from different materials (so they erode at different rates), representing the layers of the Earth.

And, if that wasn’t enough, the soaps also contain two plastic dinosaurs which are gradually revealed as the ‘Earth’s layers’ wear away.

Strictly speaking, it should be called Palaeontology Soap (as the word ‘archaeology’ doesn’t apply to dinosaurs’), but its creators have said they will change the name.

Take a closer look at the fun soap cubes here and tell us what you think of Archaeology Soap.





A fun project reveals the creativity of Swiss designers, celebrating the power of the imagination.

Let’s Play asks some of the country’s leading creative to pose for a portrait ‒ before building something out of wooden blocks.

But there’s a catch: they have to use three blocks left behind by the previous player and they have just half an hour to perfect their creation.

Let’s Play then combines each portrait with a picture of the designer’s construction, creating diptychs that offer a unique insight into creativity.

Apple has released its new festive ad, with a rather quirky take on opening our hearts to everyone.

‘Frankie’s Holiday’ follows Frankenstein’s Monster as he tries to make friends at Christmas, recording his music box on his iPhone and using his neck bolts as bulb holders.

At first, the villagers seem less than pleased to see him, but with the help of a little girl, Frankie can deliver his present and make friends at the most wonderful time of year.

Watch Frankie’s Holiday below and let us know what you think of Apple’s ad.




An architect has brought his childhood dream alive - by constructing seemingly lifesize LEGO vehicles in Rome.

Domenico Franco's 'LEGO Outside LEGOLAND' project sees him create race cars, bulldozers, and even helicopters, digitally placing them around the streets of the Italian capital and playing with our sense of perspective.

Incredibly, the colourful creations actually fit into their surroundings, injecting a bit of fun around the city's best-known landmarks and its more hidden backstreets.

Explore Franco's work here and tell us what you think of the fun project.
