1. Strong man cast iron decorative and rustic doorstopper
We loved this one as, in addition to being a really high quality cast iron product, it has a bit of humour associated with it. The cast iron man might be mini but he sure is mighty having the strength to hold a giant door open! It’s coated to give it an awesome vintage and rustic look. It also might serve as a great gift for someone that considers themselves to be a strong man! It’s one of our favourite novelty doorstoppers.
2. Novelty dog fabric doorstopper
We thought that this fabric dog doorstopper looked really classy and would be a great gift for any dog lover. We weren’t quite what breed it’s meant to be but it looks a lot like a Scottie dog to us. The shell is made of a durable polyester and cotton material and it has a tartan like appearance. The doorstop is filled with sand to give it some extra weight – it’s claimed to weigh 2.5 lbs and is therefore heavy enough to hold even the heaviest of doors open. Reading through the comments on Amazon it comes very highly rated.
3. Fabric cactus (one of our favorite novelty doorstops)
We found quite a few different cactus novelty doorstops during our search but we felt that this one stood out as the quality seems far higher than others. That’s also reflected in the Amazon ratings that we read which were very positive. We love the humour associated with this product – it’s a really unique idea and would be a great addition to any home. Fortunately it’s nice and soft and not as prickly as the real thing. It’s made of polyester and cotton on the outside with a sand filling. It’s about 2 lbs in weight which gives in the inertia to hold any door open. One of the best novelty doorstops.
4. Frog fabric novelty doorstopper
Frogs and novelty doorstops seem to go together as we found a few frogs. But we were really drawn to this one as we thought it was really cute and very different. It’s got a friendly expression and we felt this might be a great addition to a child’s room. It’s really good fun and well made. The fabric is polyester and cotton. It’s heavy at a weight of 2.6 lbs so it’s very functional too. The neutral grey color mean’s that it’ll be an easy match for most rooms.
5. Cute dog doorstoppers
It won’t surprise you to hear that we came across a lot of novelty doorstops of man’s best friend. We loved these dog doorstoppers for several reasons. Firstly they’re really cute and you can actually rotate their heads to look wherever you want. Secondly we loved the detail, in particular the highly realistic collars which we thought were a nice touch. The final thing that we liked was that these are a selection and come in a pack of three. That means they’re really great value but it also means that you can have a common theme in your house spread over different rooms. They have a rubber pad on the bottom to create friction so they should work well in all rooms – even those with hard floors.
6. Cute Animal Doorstop Selection (a pack of 6!)
You can also buy these novelty doorstops individually. However, we really liked the pack of 6 animal novelty doorstops as it means that you can have a common theme across multiple rooms. In this selection you get a cat, a bear, a dog, a duckling, a rabbit and a hedgehog. They’re all really cute ang good fun. These might be a particularly good addition to homes with young children. They’re made of PVC which is a good soft material which won’t damage doors. They have a silica gel friction pad underneath so they can be used in all rooms, including those with a hard floor.
7. Super cute elephant fabric novelty doorstopper
We love elephants and this one is SO cute. It’s a great accent piece. We loved the cordy towel like material that it’s made from. The neutral grey color is an easy match with most décor. It’s perfect for any room but we thought that this might make a particularly good addition to a play room or a nursery. We found another awesome elephant doorstop which is equally cute that we’ve included further down in this article. The doorstop is heavy too at a weight of about 2.6lbs created by the sand filling. So it’s heavy enough to hold virtually all doors open. Another one of our favourite novelty doorstops.
8. Cute fabric cat novelty doorstop
There’s something about cats in a home that creates a warm, relaxed and cosy feel. This cat doorstop is beautiful to look at and we think it would make a great gift for any cat lover. It’s made of high quality materials and comes in at weight of 2.2 lbs. And unlike the real thing it’s guaranteed to be flea free! We like the neutral colors that have been chosen for the design. We also particularly liked the posture here and the pert tail!
9. Chipmunk cast iron doorstop
We really like the high quality and vintage look associated with cast iron doorstops. And we thought that this chipmunk doorstopper was very cute. It’s very highly rated on Amazon. In comes in at weight of 1.4 lbs which is lighter than some of the others in our review. But that makes it quite portable and easy to move from room to room. This is an unusual piece that’s bound to be noticed by your guests. It would also be a great gift for anyone. It’s probably not quite as appropriate for a child’s room though as cast iron is quite hard, and you need to therefore use this gently to avoid any damage to your door.
10. Cast iron mouse vintage doorstop
Another cast iron option. This mouse door stop is brown in colour and has an antique, high quality appearance. It’s coated to prevent it from rusting and will last for decades. It also has a touch of humour to it, We felt this one was quite quirky to look at. The mouse is very realistic. It could be quite amusing to see the reaction of your cat if you decide to buy one of these for your home. It’s got a padded protective felt bottom so it won’t damage wooden or other hard floors. It’s a very popular choice on Amazon and is one of the highest rated novelty doorstops.
11. Halloween pumpkin doorstop
So this one would be particularly appropriate to bring out at Halloween but it’s potentially a bit of fun to leave out all year round. Before buying this one make sure that you read the instructions. It’s more of a decorative item than an all round doorstop. Although it works just fine it won’t hold sprung doors open and can only be used if the gap from the floor to the door is 0.35″ to 1″. Potentially a really good addition to a child’s bedroom.
12. Glowing ghost novelty doorstop
One of the scariest novelty doorstoppers that we came across. In addition to the cartoon like ghost appearance it glows in the dark. As per the pumpkin doorstop described above it’s more of a decorative item than a doorstop. It does work perfectly well but it won’t hold a very heavy door. It’s a good price on Amazon and it’s a good addition to your Halloween decorations.
13. Glowing skeleton doorstop
This one looks a bit like Skeletor from “He Man!” As per the ghost doorstop we’ve included above it’s quite novel as it glows in the dark. A great novelty product to bring out at Halloween. And it wouldn’t look out of place in a kid’s room or a man cave all year round. As with the other Halloween style doorstops make sure that you read the manufacturers instructions properly before buying as there certain circumstances where it won’t work properly.
14. Fabric elephant cute doorstopper
Yes, we know, this the second elephant doorstop on our list. Be we couldn’t resist. We thought that this one was really cute too. It comes with the same almost cord-like towel feel material as the other example in our list. But the posture here is different. As with all fabric filled doorstops it’s filled with sand to create the weight needed to hold doors open. It’s very well made indeed and, at the time of writing, it has a 5 star rating on Amazon which is very unusual but illustrates the quality of the product.
15. Dog Tail Decorative Cast Iron Doorstopper
We like the vintage feel of this one. But we also liked the humour. It looks like half a doorstopper as it creates the illusion of the dog disappearing through the door! This would look great in most rooms ranging from a bedroom to the living room. It comes in at a weight of 1.64 lbs so it’s quite portable. This would make a great novelty gift for any dog lover.
16. Banana skin door stopper
Well this example certainly isn’t the classiest on our list. But we like it because it’s really good fun. We loved the cartoon style design. And it does come surprisingly highly rated on Amazon. It works on virtually all doors provided the gap at the bottom is between 0.1 and 1 inches. It’s made of PVC which has a soft finish which won’t cause damage to your doors or floors. It works well on both soft and hard floors.
17. Novelty leaf door stoppers
We thought that this product was bargain. These come in packs of 4 so you can use them in different rooms. Each leaf is also a different color to give you a good chance of finding a room where it’s a match with the décor. The leaves are made of silicone and they have a cartoon like appearance. They can be used on most door seams. They’re made of a non-slip material so these will work in hard floor rooms and carpeted rooms alike. They come with a handy cord which is good for hanging them when not in use and also to get a grip when pulling them out from underneath the bottom of the door.
18. Mickey mouse novelty doorstop
We’re big fans of Disney and, as one would expect, this Mickey Mouse doorstop is absolutely awesome! It’s certainly not the cheapest doorstop that you can buy! But it looks great and will be appreciated by all Disney fans in the household. It’s made of resin so it’s nice and soft and won’t damage the surface of wooden doors. This item would be perfect for a child’s bedroom or playroom.
19. Toy Story Woody Doorstopper
This is very similar to the Mickey Mouse doorstop that we describe above but this is the Toy Story version. We particularly love the detail on Woody on this one.
20. Loose Leaf Doorstop
This looks less cartoony and more natural than some of the other silicon/plastic based options we have described in our list. You could actually be excused for thinking that this is a real leaf and not a doorstop at all! Particularly great for front doors as it looks like a leaf drifted in from outside and landed under the door. It’s a clever idea. There are loads of good ratings on Amazon meaning that it also works well as a doorstop.
21. Decorative dog interior doorstopper
Returning to cute again we really liked this brown plaid dog doorstop. The neutral colors mean it will look great in most rooms. It’s 2.6 lbs in weight so should hold even the heaviest of doors. It’s made of a durable, high quality fabric which will last and last. Another great gift option for dog or animal lovers. Highly rated on Amazon and a surprisingly modest price.
