And the award for best use of half a¬†used plastic toy goes to…the dinosaur iPhone stand! Not that there was a ton of competition, mind you, but how can you not totally love these¬†upcycled toys-turned-gadget¬†stands?

From the look of it, the premise is pretty simple: Rescue plastic toy dinosaur from possible extinction, decapitate said toy¬†dinosaur, paint and seal, attach suction cup. The tail turns it into the perfect tripod style stand to suit an Android phone, iPod, Blackberry, you name it. (Though I wouldn’t be so sure that even the mighty T-Rex could support a full sized tablet.)

I’d love to wake up with one of those¬†on my nightstand each morning. Or maybe it’s better suited towards your workspace where¬†a little intimidation can come in handy. Or, you know, however intimidating a T-Rex’s posterior might be.

I haven’t seen one in person but for just $15 a pop, it’s hard to resist; so much so, the artist sells a ton of them¬†in her Etsy shop¬†and the reviews are quite nice. She’ll even paint one in a color just for you. Breathe easy, friends —¬†at last, your lifelong search for that elusive¬†triceratops phone dock¬†in just the perfect shade of aqua is over.
