We bought this in New Jersey? Worst products ever
The Museum of Failure has made its way to New York and it reminds me of the dumb things we bought in New Jersey.
It was first launched in Sweden in 2017 and will be in Brooklyn through May at Industry City.
The purpose of the museum, according to their Instagram page, is to "stimulate discussion about accepting and learning from failure".
We it comes to failure, we've certainly had our share. Just ask West Orange's own Thomas Edison.
Among his failed products are the 'automatic vote recorder' which we could have used in the last election and the "electric pen".
But if you're looking for some epic fails or maybe some products that seemed like a good idea at the time, try these from my social media following and if you actually bought any of these items, I won't tell if you won't.
