No shortage of strange items have popped up on SkyMall over the years. 

The former in-flight magazine-turned-online store ran into some trouble in the past few years. After filing for bankruptcy in 2015, it was acquired and saved by a New Jersey-based marketing company. If you visit the website, you’ll find that many products are on sale, and many more are listed as out of stock.  

Here are 13 unexpected items available now on SkyMall, ranging from practical, everyday items you didn’t know you needed to bizarre gadgets. Prices are accurate as of publication.
