I have the hardest time with these things

On #3 ~ this "thing" is occasionally made of wood or glass - so I guess that would be 'natural materials'. Here in the U.S., though, they're generally metal or plastic.
Which, I guess, is another hint....

1. Is this thing man-made? Yes, it is indeed.
2. Is it usually found indoors? Yes
3. Is it made from natural materials? Usually, No...
4. Does it move? Yes ~ with assistance .
5. Is it bigger than a breadbox? No
6. Is it some sort of kitchen gadget? Nope
7. Is it something that a lot of people might own? Yes, I'd say a lot would have one.
8. Does it come in versions for both left and right handers? No
9. Is it something one might use/touch several times per day? No
10. Might a man use this more often than a woman? No
"Halfway-through" hint: But a student might use it more than a non-student would...
11. is it a battery operated thing? Very rarely so I'd say no.
12. Is it a bottle or can-opener? No - in fact, the "thing" has nothing to do with food/beverages.
13. Does the 'moving' happen by being carried? No

Duh. See what that little guy in your avatar is doing? I look a lot like that right now.

Could it be a... GLOBE?

Yay! Taesma ~ that'd be it. A goofy little globe is the correct answer indeed ! Whew, I'm glad I'm off the hook...

Your turn!

Like pulling teeth, eh?

No, there was nothing at all misleading there...just not the kind of object that readily springs to mind.
(Hey, they've got these really cool globes at Costco right now that are battery operated and play music and play geography games with you. I'm thinking of getting one "for my daughter". She needs more toys that mom can play with...)

Ok, I'm thinking of an OBJECT.
