A guilty confession: I’ve never seen a single episode of MacGyver. But I know enough about the show and the character by cultural osmosis to know that MacGyver is some kind of adventurer who often uses household items to get out of dangerous jams. And that’s pretty much all you need to know to appreciate the Action Hero Toolkit from IFIXIT.
For under $10, purchasers of the Action Hero Toolkit get a bobby pin, a strike-anywhere match, a rubber band, a piece of bubble gum, a birthday candle, a paper clip, a shoelace, a penny stamp, and (of course) some duct tape, all in a small box you can carry in your pocket.
As you have probably figured out by now, this is more of a tongue-in-cheek gag gift item than a proper toolkit, but you never know when you’ll be captured by bad guys or forced to defuse a bomb at gunpoint…or whatever it is MacGyver does.
So you may want to head to the IFIXIT online store here, where you can buy an Action Hero Toolkit for $9.95.
