Not so much unexpected but i constantly see my Frying pan and skillet at Price club / Costco and grocery stores being used to cook up the samples they make.

I still have this toaster in my portfolio! I found it's a great conversation piece, especially when talking about the orientation of the toast.

I've seen lots of my toys on TV including when Jay Leno put one in his mouth on the Tonight Show. I also have a whole collection of knockoffs that i treasure but my favorite is when people send me random pictures of my toys beat to hell and abandoned.

I have heard Tucker Viemeister speak a few times now, and he brings up this story of when he saw a knife he designed for OXO on the news as being used as a murder weapon!

I'm more a fan when they show up on magazine covers. :-) The Definitive BP9080x landed the cover of Sound & Vision this month...

I thought this was pretty interesting.
I developed a made in the usa line of molded TPE dog toys, they went in target and were a big seller.
We were told that the department was going to phase out TPE products and the line was dropped.
Two or Three years later i walk in to target right after a reset and they are using the discontinued product in their new department headers.
