The Beatles Drum Clock
This is the wall clock inspired by legendary Beatle Ringo Starr’s snare drum. A unique gift for one who still suffers from bouts of Beatlemania, the clock features the group’s famous dropped-T logo as it first appeared on front of the iconic percussionist’s Ludwig bass drum in 1963 and more famously on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1964. The drum’s shell retains the same oyster black pearl finish of the original drum kit while electroplated hoops, lugs, and tension rod castings yield a gleaming finish. Keeping impeccable time with one (required) AA battery. $129.95. www.hammacher.com

 

 

The Only Seven Person Tricycle
Accommodates seven adults. The seven seats each have a set of pedals that riders can operate simultaneously to propel the tricycle up to 10 mph, encouraging social interaction and team-building while pedaling.

Handmade in Germany for the likes of Cirque du Soleil and Google, the tricycle has a circular jointed drive-shaft, Porsche-engineered rack-and-pinion steering, and a completely covered drivetrain to protect the mechanism from dirt and dust. Price $20,000. www.hammacher.com
