Is Tippy Toes Towel the Most Worthless Product Ever?

Tales of visionary inventors and entrepreneurs provide inspiration. The examples of fearless innovators like Steve Jobs and Thomas Edison motivate many aspiring business owners to keep striving toward their goals.

Unfortunately, those stories can also delude someone into thinking the Tippy Toes Towel is a good idea for a product:

Much like the Recip-Ease, Tippy Toes Towel is an unfortunate instance of someone trying too hard to invent a product. Maybe that torn up old towel in your bathroom shouldn’t inspire you to innovate; maybe it should just be thrown away.

And, yes, the Tippy Toes Towel really is a real product that someone expects to sell through the website shown on the infomercial ( Though if they wanted this thing to be successful they could have at least found a way to make cleaner cuts instead of slashing a towel with the dullest knife in the kitchen drawer:

Perhaps wetness in-between toes really is a common hardship that many have struggled with silently until now. But even if the product doesn’t catch on as a way to dry toes, they can at least rebrand them as Freddy Krueger and Wolverine theme towels.

  • Seems like an idea that would get a C- as some sort of 8th grade class project.

  • I would buy one if they would make one for between my fingers. I still have not figured out how to dry between my fingers and have resorted to using a lighter and to burning off the water but I have since burned off all my skin and I now need skin grafts on my hands. Sheesh

  • What are you talking about? I agonise for minutes trying to dry my toes, every day. This is just the natural evolution of the towel.

  • the only way I could take this serious as a product
    Is if they were targeting obese people who have trouble
    reaching their toes, seriously. If its like that, something else has
    To be offered people buy stuff that is stupid but you have to
    make it seem like a deal.

  • I won’t even comment on the product itself because even the most useless-seeming thing might have a use to someone out there, but I want to comment on the commercial itself. It’s probably the most half-assed commercial I’ve ever seen and I’ve witnessed some bad-awful commercials from some of the local businesses. The voice-over guy sounds kind of like a used car salesman.

  • Kattycasvi reminds me of a certain mister Snrub…

  • Yes, because I often agonize over how to get my toes dry (because regular towels are waaay too confusing and toes take HOURS to dry) and I was never smart enough to slice a few holes into one of those darn mind-boggling towels…
