Many of us probably used to feel like detectives looking inside different things to find out what was in them when we were kids. And that’s no surprise — it’s so much fun! Even for grown-ups, learning about our world is a big adventure, especially when it comes to looking at everyday items from a completely different angle.

We at Now I’ve Seen Everything want to bring you some of that child-like joy with these 18 objects that hide some pretty curious things from us.
