The freak hot spell has proved to be a boon for sales of some equally unusual summer goods.

According to online shopping site 11st on Monday, sales of electric foot fans jumped 63 percent on-year in May, while those of cooling wrist rests, which keep your mouse-using hand from overheating, rose 16 percent.

"These products are popular among people in their 20s and 30s as they are cheap and don't use a lot of power", said a spokesman of the shopping site.

At Gmarket, sales of portable electric fans grew by a record 573 percent last month from a year earlier, while sales of cool gel pillows, which absorb body heat, rose 67 percent.
