There really are some awesome door stoppers available on the net. Each is unique in it’s own way. And each can add it’s own touch of magic the right room. Here we’ve posted some of the most beautiful and innovative door stops on the net.
1. Fred and Friends LAST STOP Paper Airplane Doorstop
This Fred and Friends Paper Airplane door stop calls Claus Oldenburg to mind—it’s an everyday object doing something unexpected. The durable eva paper airplane plastic door wedge is 8-1/2-inch long and slides under the door with little more effort than it takes to slide an actual paper airplane across a floor. We especially like this product in offices, where paper airplanes are usually verboden.
2. The Wizard of Oz Red Ruby Slippers Doorstop – Wicked Witch of the East
For all you Wizard of Oz fans, here’s the Wicked Witch of the East to drop your door on. The Red Ruby Slippers Doorstop is made of painted pewter, so it’s durable enough to place out in your garden too (right on the edge of your house). Made by Westland Giftware, the Wizard of Oz Red Ruby Slippers Doorstop is not suitable for homes with small children—it’s a shiny choking hazard.
3. Melting Chocolate Silicone Rubber Door Stop
The Melting Chocolate Silicone Rubber Door Stop plays delightfully on the classic brown rubber door stop, turning that boring prop into a pleasing bar of melted eye candy on the floor. Whether you like chocolate or just like novelty home décor, this rubber door stopper is an affordable choice which we recommend you pair with the vanilla ice cream door stop (#5 on this list).
4. Tentacle Door Stopper
Creatures from the deep turn up where you least expect them—right under your bedroom door sometimes. This creepy tentacle door stop is a fine choice for the monster lover in life (or the actual monster in your life, if you have one), waving in a friendly way from across the room.
5. Bürstenhaus Redecker Hedgehog Wooden Door Stop
From Bürstenhaus Redecker in Germany, the Hedgehog Wooden Door Stop is downright adorable. Handcrafted to a high standard of quality, this door wedge hedgehog has a fiber fur coat for cleaning your boots on.

Bürstenhaus Redecker has been making brushes and other household goods since 1935. For those who love hans my hedgedog or any other hedgehog, we highly recommend this quality, heavy duty door stop.
6. Faux Gold Bar Door Stop
$24 will get you a case of gold bars—well, faux gold bar door stops, but it’s still a deal. These gold bars will catch the attention of anyone passing by your office or brighten up a dark corner in your home. In the Chinese tradition of feng shui, money brings money; if you want to invite it into your life, you set up a money shrine—this little door wedge may do the same. For the same reason, Chinese people always keep the toilet lid down—this keeps money from flushing down the drain. These gold bar door stops also work as paperweights or as fun Halloween props for costumed robbers. May we suggest wrapping one up in a paper bag for a gag birthday gift?
7. DomeStar Cute Mouse Door Stopper
This is one of the cutest door rubber stops on our list. A mouse sitting cheerfully in a wedge of cheese has been a humorous visual image since at least medieval times (as the marginalia in old texts attest). DomeStar’s door wedge is made of high quality, anti-skid material to protect the floor from scratches. This tiny mouse in the cheese comes with a 100% money back guarantee and a lifetime warranty. Besides the modest gray mouse, this door stopper also comes with a white mouse in cheese, to better match your home, nursery, or office.

Or bring it to your office to cheer up a dull doorway there (and watch your coworkers do a double take—hours of fun). Made from durable plastic, this affordable model is easy to clean and holds up under continued usage. As wall guards go, we’re sweet on the vanilla ice cream cone.
9. Banana Door Stop
There’s nothing that says “I like slapstick and I’m proud of it” quite like a banana peel door stopper. The Banana Door Stop from iSaddle is a fine way to prop open your door with quiet comic dignity. Its happy cartoon yellow rubber will cheer up a dark corner and it’s easy to clean. Attractively priced at $9, the Banana door stop makes our list of clever household items.

Soothing brown, gold, late season green and red are the colors of these door wedge maple leaves.

It’s lightweight, easy to clean and stylish, and rings in at $15. Pause for a moment: does your bedroom need some play?
14. Novelty Money Door Stop
Not far from the gold bar door stop is the novelty money door stop—in this case, it’s a fat stack of euros. For some reason this door stopper costs far more than others on out list (though the company claims they’re selling imitation euros, wrapped in rubber), but we include it as an idea generator; creative folks could probably make their own with a few dollars and a lamination set. Trick your boss into bending over, shamefully jumping up again, and rushing out of your office with this Novelty Money Door Stop.
