Despite its diminutive stance, this miniature garbage can from Vipp is fully functional. Touch the tiny pedal where you'd usually stomp your foot and the lid temporarily pops open letting you dispose of tiny bits of trash, or store pens, pencils, paper clips, and other bits of stuff floating around your desk.

At just over four-inches tall it's a perfect fifth-scale replica of Vipp's full-size garbage cans whose design dates back to the 1930s. And while nothing's stopping you from using it to dispose of rubbish, you're probably going to have a hard time finding suitably-sized liner bags for it, so it's probably best suited for wrangling thumbtacks and other tiny things you don't actually want being tossed by the cleaners.
