Fred & Friends puts the fun in functional


Where can you find bear hand oven mitts, a rubber chicken wine stopper, nesting doll measuring cups, and these funky metallic party cups? Believe it or not, you can find them all at the fun but functional online retailer Fred & Friends based in Pawtucket. The former toy company designs whimsical home accessories that serve a purpose: “We delight in taking every day, functional products and turning them into something fresh and unexpected, something funny, something personal.” So, for your next party, swap out those plastic red Solo cups for these affordable, colorful, and reusable alternatives. The best part? Like the label says, it’s “Designed in Rhode Island, By People.”
