These Realistic Human Thumb Tacks Are The Perfect Creepy Office Accessory

It’s always a good rule of thumb to keep your home, office or desk-space organized, and push pins are a classic way that many elect to do so. Often called “thumbtacks,” these push pins can be a useful tool for a number of different uses, but they can also make your documents, maps or other wall-pinned objects feel cold, distant and uninviting.

What you really need in pushpins in the modern age is for them to be a little bit human, and using realistic thumb thumbtacks could be the warm, inviting touch you need for the next time you pin something to the wall — or, they could just be creepy.

Either way, these realistic thumb push pins from ThisisMichiesshop on Etsy make for a great gag gift for the holidays, or Halloween, literally putting the thumb back in “thumbtack.” The handmade realistic thumbs include a small metal tack that lets you pin up paper or other lightweight materials without having to thumb through a bunch of boring traditional push pins.

The realistic human thumbtacks are extremely convincing, featuring a hand-crafted thumb with authentic-appearing wrinkles, and a large thumbnail with a slightly glossy finish, all of which are attached to a metal tack for pinning items up. The thumbtack push pins are sold in a set of four and the shop says they’re lightweight enough to work on corkboards or just about anywhere else you might normally use a thumbtack.

Now you can say goodbye to twiddling your thumbs aimlessly during the workday and say hello to important documents sticking out like a sore thumb! Or four.

These realistic thumb push pins are handmade by the shop owner Michie, out of a combination of polymer clay and metal tacks. While the specific size isn’t listed, the videos and photos seem to show that the thumb push pins are about the size of an actual thumb, measuring about one cubic inch.

The shop also notes that, because each realistic thumbtack push pin is made by hand, each thumbtack will also be a little bit unique. The shop also has slight variations on the thumb push pins, including a literally-green Frankenstein thumb, a finger bottle opener, a severed finger drink stirrer, and much more.
