These ladles appear to be named after the Loch Ness Monster of the Scottish Highlands, but they remind me more of Dino the dinosaur from the Flintstones cartoons. Either way, they are cute as heck and will bring a smile to the face of anyone who uses one. Available through the Animi Causa Boutique, these large long-handled spoons come in a regular version or one with holes that can be used like a strainer or colander. They are made of toughened nylon, so I’m not sure how safe they are when used with hot liquids. If soup ladles don’t impress you, you can also buy a Nessie tea infuser which is made of silicone and comes in several colors. Prices for the ladles range from $15.99 to $19.99 and the tea infuser is priced at $15.99. For more info visit animicausa.com.
