Chip is adorable!

Alessi never disappoints and this is no exception. Chip is a very solid bird that looks whimsical as you add paper clips to make up his feathers.
More awesome in person.

I like shiny things. The moment i saw this, I had no clue whatsoever what it was but I had to have it. I instantly bought one on the spot. I love it a lot. It's a solid item, weight wise and aesthetically. I wish they have more things like this. For instance, a key ring holder with a much stronger magnet to hold more than one set of keys. It could be resemble a large grub worm that sticks to a wall where you'll never misplace your keys ever again. It also makes an excellent paper weight. I have minus a star for the time i had to wait, but I have it now so 5 stars. All aces
