If you are familiar with any of the products created by the inventive folks at Vitamin in London, it's probably their 'urban gnomes' since those are carried at several hip online and design stores worldwide. The Urban Creatures range has since spawned several offshoots and variations based on the original screen printed, 21 cm tall white creatures.

Now, they've added a new line of products based upon their 'Urban Creatures' that includes kitchen timers, bottle openers and coin banks.
As of right now, the Urban Creatures line of bottle openers, kitchen timers, and money boxes are available for pre-order and each comes in one of four styles; Floral, Blossom, Bones and Hex.
