The bright colors and whimsical postures of Animal House utensils turn any kitchen into a zoo. Kids especially enjoy helping out when they get to use a parakeet garlic press, toucan can opener, or this vivid orange vegetable peeler in the shape of a grinning monkey hanging from a branch. Its upraised arms hold the stainless-steel peeling blade, which swivels to adeptly peel curved surfaces, and the textured body forms a non-slip handle. There's even a potato-eye remover at one end of the blade. Designed by Christopher Raia Studio, the monkey peeler brings a smile during a harried day and makes a great gift along with other fun utensils from the Animal House menagerie. After use, the six-inch-long peeler slips into the dishwasher for easy cleanup. --Ann Bieri
