Ever thought of taking up circumcision as a pastime—but need to practice your snips before you make a go of it? Or maybe you need to work out your anemic toes in anticipation of beach season, brah. Well, we have good news: Amazon’s got you covered.
Sure, the Bezos behemoth carries staples—like furniture, appliances, and food—but it also stocks some really off-the-wall products like circumcision trainers and toe exercisers. Heck, you can even get a Lamborghini on Amazon.
That’s all thanks to massive growth in the number and types of products Amazon sells. Amazon stocked 562 million different products in 2018—a far cry from the bookseller stock that grounded the brand in 1994. And while most of us seek out normal, everyday items on Amazon, some are looking for the truly bizarre—like a $60,000 a dinosaur skull or a $30 book covering archaic terminal diseases (with ghoulish illustrations).
Given the inventory spread on Amazon, we sought to find the weirdest of the weird in 2019. Of course, we know that one person’s weird is another person’s treasure, but these standouts are admittedly beyond our comprehension—and, in some cases, outside our comfort zone.
Here are 20 of the strangest things you can buy on Amazon in 2019:
Price: $59,000 (with free shipping)
Reviews: 5 stars from three reviews
Why go to a natural history museum when you can admire a dinosaur skull in your own living room? Anyone with $59,000 burning a hole in their pocket—and in need of some home décor—will love having a 4.5 x 5-foot T-Rex skull in their own home. The only trouble is, the free shipping is going to take longer than the two-day turnaround you’re likely used to. But no matter—you can use the time to clean those wooly mammoth tusks that have been collecting dust.
Real Review: It’s aHEAD of the pack!
WOW, just WOW…I purchased an inferior one five years ago for $79,000 and let me tell—you this new one is an amazing bargain for $59,000. These new teeth provide tremendous skull crushing power like you’ve never imagined. I run this one off two powerful 6,000 horsepower locomotive engines to deliver all the fun-chomping mayhem. The entire neighborhood is filled with a plethora of splendid joy when I am having my annual fun-filled barbecue and I fire up the savage cutting power.

We all love popping pimples, which is why somebody decided to make a game out of it. Yep, this $14 toy—only a 4×3-inch block of silicone—allows you to practice pimple popping all day long. It even comes with a bottle of pus so you can refill the pores and keep at it. The manufacturer claims it has therapeutic powers—kind of like a (grotesque) fidget toy.
Real Review: Kinda gross, but fun!
This is kind of gross but so fascinating! It looks like a simple toy, but the kids love it. It gets them away from electronics and provides hours of interaction. It helps with hand-eye coordination and makes them laugh.
Price: $200 (estimated; not currently in stock)
Reviews: 2.3 stars from 55 reviews
In our beloved DIY age, you can pretty much do anything yourself—including circumcising your own child. Thanks to this trainer, wanna-be snippers will be able to master the art of foreskin cutting before actually doing the deed. Though currently out of stock, it would cost around $200. A low average review of 2.3 stars indicates that it might not be a wise purchase, though; reviewers complain about how unrealistic the plastic baby is.
Real Review: Simple instructions – allows for multiple attempts
This is a great gift for anyone pursuing a career in the medical field, young rabbis in training, or even those interested in DIY jobs. As It turns out, anyone can learn the tricks of the trade in this modern world—I’m sure glad I did!

If you ever thought you didn’t need a life-size decal of an old woman using an inhaler, you thought wrong. For about only $22, she will bring you endless joy, according to the dozens of purchasers and reviewers. In fact, not only will she bring happiness, but she apparently is also very durable and can withstand being used outdoors. It really is no surprise that people of all ages enjoy her presence. What’s not to love?
I was a little worried buying this because all the reviews seemed to be written as a joke for some reason. I am in the process of redecorating my kitchen and needed a piece like this, but I was worried about the quality. I bought six of these in the small size and all of them have stuck to the wall amazingly well. The colors are so vibrant! It’s like I have six ladies sitting in my breakfast nook, which is exactly what I was going for!
Price: $12 (for 12 monthly issues)

Sure, you love birds and relish your partner’s doe-y bedroom eyes on lazy Saturday mornings. But some of us wake up to dog eyes instead—and can’t get enough of it. Thank God for “Dog Eyes,” the publication devoted entirely to, well, dog eyes. In case you just couldn’t get enough of your canine’s stare, Dog Eyes magazine gives you pictures of pup pupils alongside fun-loving articles about our furry friends. A subscription costs just $12 per year for 12 issues, or $1 per magazine. That’s a small price to pay for such big puppy eyes.
Real Review: I LOVE this magazine!
This magazine makes me feel so peaceful; it is like taking a relaxing walk in nature with my dog. After reading the magazine and looking at the photos, I feel like I’ve just finished a deep, satisfying meditation. Ahhh….highly recommend!
Price: $120 Prime only (for a six-pack)

Cow milk is so 1999—and so are soy milk, almond milk, cashew milk, and coconut milk. Today, it’s all about the camel milk. Or if it’s not, it’s about to be. Camels aren’t usually thought of as milk-producing animals, but we also didn’t think cronuts could be a thing—until they were. Camel milk became available on Amazon after it purchased Whole Foods, which carries the product in-store. Thanks to Amazon, you can avoid lugging your pints of camel milk out of Whole Foods and get it delivered to your door instead. So glad we got over that hump.
Real Review: Camel Milk – Refreshing and Healthful!
I can’t say enough about this product and its producers. Of course, we have to thank the wonderful camels who give us this! What wonderful, long-legged girls they are!!!
Price: $29.99 ($9.29 shipping)

A Jerusalem cricket may not be the cuddly pet most of us wish for, but those who love their insects will relish the convenience of ordering one on Amazon. They grow to a whopping two inches in length with a face that, well, only a mother—and insect devotee—could love. Keep in mind, while they aren’t poisonous, their large head has a powerful jaw that really packs a punch. If you’re looking to give your young niece or nephew a present, this may or may not be it.
Real Review: Still alive thus far so that’s good.
Purchased for family member birthday. Package came a day early. Cricket was very lively. Likes hiding though. Still alive thus far so that’s good. If you like insects as pets this is definitely a good option.
Price: $31.50 (eligible for Prime two-day shipping)

It’s normally rude to stare, but with “The Sick Rose,” you get to peer into the faces of those with illnesses uncommon in the 21st century. Pore over the gaunt figures suffering from cholera, savor the bloat of diphtheria—why, even check out some gnarly poxes! Meant to be an educational tool for medical professionals, this is a book everyone (but the squeamish) can enjoy. It will set you back $31.50 for a new copy, but you’re sure to have more fun with it than any textbook you bought back in college.
Real Review: Wonderfully gruesome
Who needs DeviantArt? This book fits my freak flag!! Great graphics, not for the faint of heart.
Price: $94.99 (with free shipping)
Reviews: 4.2 stars from 113 reviews
Canes are notoriously boring; this bad pup is anything but. Those desperate for a cane with both an ice pick and a pointed hammer will have to drop a whopping $95 to get one—and they won’t get it in two days as its not eligible for Prime. On the upside, though, the manufacturers claim it is nearly indestructible, and some reviewers who have put it to the test agree. The Survival Hammer is perfect for anyone who needs walking support and a lethal weapon in one. Who has room in their pants for throwing knives these days anyway?
Real Review: A walking stick for the zombie apocalypse
Unless you live in a video game world among evil pterodactyls, this looks a little menacing and could get you some negative attention; you are carrying a weapon. It would be better if the seller supplied rubber protectors for both the pointed hammer and spike side. Finally, this is not high quality edged steel; it’s a simple casting. But it’s unusual and kind of wild, and could be a comfort in a bad neighborhood.
Price: $29.95 (eligible for Prime two-day shipping)

Ghostbusters, beware: Ghosting hunting is no longer spectator sport. With affordable electromagnetic field, or EMF, readers on Amazon, it’s now a serious hobby for anyone with too much time on their hands. And if you need to see to believe, this Ghost Meter could be well-worth the $30 investment. Plus, it does more than just detect apparitions—it has practical value as a detector of electromagnetic fields. Whatever you use it for, it’s cheap; most EMF readers cost closer to $100.
Real Review: It worked when I visited an old army base.
At first I thought it was a joke, it did light up like a Christmas tree when I tested it next to an electrical panel. I also found out it lights up near anything electrical (like the dashboard) but I tried it an old army base, my vehicle was off, all of a sudden it lit up? Wow…

Urine is one of the oldest prey-luring tricks in the hunting books, but this isn’t just regular old urine—it’s the urine from a hog in heat. That apparently get the boars running, but who knows what else it could do? Said to be one of the most effective hog urines on the market, it’s also 100% natural with no fillers or additives.
Real Review: It seems to work
First time I tried this stuff a hog showed up in 15 minutes. A few drops of this stuff make the entire area smell like a hog farm. Sometimes hogs are attracted just because they are curious to what the odor is. I need to order more of this stuff.

You don’t have to have a good right hook to pack a powerful punch with these stun gun brass knuckles. Though traditional brass knuckles are illegal in many states throughout the country, you can still find this version—with a built-in stun gun or taser mechanism—on Amazon. As nefarious as they seem, they’re mostly used for self-defense by fearful joggers and those in sketchy neighborhoods. Parents, keep combative siblings away from this product.
Real Review: Very nice
This thing is cool. I haven’t had to use it yet and no one will volunteer but the sound alone scares the crap out of the dogs and my mom.
Price: $59.95 (eligible for Prime two-day shipping)

For $60, you can save yourself a trip to the doctor’s office and test your sperm at home. This is great for those just curious about their swimmers or perhaps looking to take some of the guesswork away family planning. It’s not a crazy concept in general, but it is crazy cool how cheap it is to get a device that will show your sperm in action.
Real Review: Super cool
I’m really impressed with this product. It was super easy to use and REALLY cool to watch the video after. If you have legitimate concerns, I would see a doctor. But if you’re looking for a first step at home, I would highly recommend this product. A lot less embarrassing than dropping a sample off in public too!

Nobody likes a juicy tarantula. Gross. Dehydrated tarantula, however, is another story. This edible dehydrated Zebra Tarantula comes in a can for safe keeping, ensuring your tarantula arrives with all dessicated legs intact. The best part is, it’s dusted with barbeque seasoning, so it will surely please even picky taste buds.
Real Review: Good product
A little dry. Spider wasn’t broken, perfect condition. If you’re into eating spiders, this is for you.
Price: $49 (with $7.82 for shipping)

Just because you’re hard-pressed to find toe workout equipment at the gym doesn’t mean you can’t get a good toe workout. For just over $50 with shipping, you can buy your own workout machine that uses little resistance bands to individually workout each and every one of your toes. Between this and a pedicure, you’ll be ready for sandal season.
Real Review: Love it
I love it and use it with clients all the time. I have clients wear socks and I can still get it on their toes. Helps me work them faster than using TheraBands on each toe individually.

Stage Fright PillsPicture the audience in their underwear if you’d like, but with stage fright pills, you won’t need to. It’s available as a one-time purchase or as a monthly subscription, which probably isn’t necessary unless you’re a very timid professional performer. Quickly melt your on-stage worries away with these easily-popped pills and rest assured they are non-drowsy and homeopathic.
Real Review: Homeopathy Works – if used correctly.
Good quality as usual from Boiron. But as usual, not for amateurs. Homeopathy requires skill and precision. Don’t misuse our remedies and say “Homeopathy doesn’t work!”
It is not for casual use – see a professional Homeopath. Don’t expect an MD to have any idea how to use these.

You’d be hard-pressed to find fertile chicken eggs at your local Tractor Supply in the middle of winter, but leave it to Amazon to have some in stock by the half dozen. What’s cool is that the eggs come from a mix of chicken breeds, so you never know exactly which type of chicken egg you’ll get. Isn’t that fun?
Real Review: Awesome experience!
Our Polish chicken went completely mommy crazy and kept stealing our red star eggs. We let her sit on some eggs for 3-1/2 weeks and realized they were not fertile. We are not sure if our little Bantam rooster is fertilizing their eggs, and she wouldn’t let up on the stealing eggs and sitting, sitting, sitting! We decided to order her a 6 pack of eggs to hatch and make her happy… so she could get off the bad eggs and focus on being the mom she wanted to be.
Price: $9.99 to buy or $2.99 to rent
Take your diving experience to new depths with scuba diving meditation. Already regarded as an extreme sport, scuba diving can be even more extreme with deep sea meditation. In just 10 “subtly” educational videos, you can learn the art of scuba and zen for $10. For an otherwise expensive sport, this is a steal. Just remember this is for experienced divers, not those new to the sport.
Real Review: Unfortunately, there aren’t currently any reviews for this. This may be because purchasers are too zen to leave a review, or they are still at the bottom of the ocean.
Price: $24.95 (eligible for Prime two-day shipping)
For the cost of Chinese takeout, you can skip the calories and fill your home with the fresh scent of General’s Tso’s Chicken for about the same price. Though it’s a bit of a tease, who doesn’t love the wafting smell of Chinese food? For that matter, who isn’t dying to find a replacement for the tired Hawaiian beach-lavender-leather-vanilla-laundry tapers that dot their bedroom? The best part is: the Takeout Candle lasts longer than actual takeout and won’t go to your hips.
Real Review: There currently no reviews for the Chinese Takeout Candle. It’s likely buyers smelled the delicious candle and left to get some General Tso’s instead of submitting a review.

No, this isn’t for extra protection on a trip to the jungle and it’s clearly not for sheer looks. It is useful, though, as it keeps makeup intact and clothes clean while changing. The reusable version costs just about $10 and is ideal for those who frequently find themselves in the predicament of wearing full makeup while having to put on an outfit. Just remember to take it off before going out for the night.
Real Review: Dual purpose for sure
Dual purpose for sure: 1) Keep makeup off of white shirt during disrobing and dressing. 2) Scaring family members and anyone coming in contact with me while wearing this.
Bottom Line – 20 Strangest Things on Amazon
There’s no question that Amazon is the go-to for almost anything. This list proves it—with a decal of an elderly woman using an asthma inhaler to jazz up drab walls and a barbeque-flavored tarantula for arachnid snackers, it’s truly a resource for people craving the bizarre and extreme. And with growth on the horizon, Amazon is poised to up their weird game. But that begs the question: What’s weirder than dinosaur skulls and circumcision kits?
