NES Coffee Table by Matt Cyborgelt

I saw the above image and was like “Hey cool space invaders chair” then I was like “NES TABLE!!!!!!1111 one one one one”.

This is awesome, I want one, there is an entire gallery of images of the table over on Matt’s Flickr.

The Cartridge slot opens to reveal an extra large fully functional NES controller.


I think he has it wired up with his cable box inside, the controller ports are actually power sockets so he can plug in his laptop and the back opens up so he can reach the back of his cable box and whatever other gizmos he has in there.

NES Controller Rug and Cushion

NES  Nintendo Controller Rug

This rug (above) and the cushion (below) are from Etsy seller WTCrafts, and I want them both… It’s a shame that the rug isn’t “durable” according to the description as I’d love a NES controller door mat, but it would probably get knicked anyway.

Ninjabot Nintendo Pin-Ups

The Peach Pin-Up above and the Daisy Pin-Up below are available from Ninja Bot‘s store for $20 each. It’s good to see Daisey getting her share of prime time, everyone always thinks of peach and daisy just plays 2nd fiddle. That said Daisy has only really been the goal of one Mario game, she just plays a bit part in a whole load of Mario sub-games, she’s not even Luigi to Mario’s Peach. Which is a shame, when peach got her own game where she was the protagonist.

Steak Bouquet: For the Person Who Loves Meat as Much as You Love Them

Not only is this a good idea but if someone asks you what you got your partner for Valentines day you could reply with “I gave her the beef” which I think is a euphemism and a half.

This was created by Antony Bowness of Quality Standard Beef and Lamb which is a butchers in Teweksbury in Gloucestershire:

I get asked every year what I’d like for Valentine’s Day and I never know what to suggest. Soppy cards aren’t really my thing and it got me thinking about what I could make for other men out there like me. I had a ‘Eureka’ moment one day when a customer came in with a bunch of flowers. I started playing around with the idea and realized it was actually quite easy to do! I mean if you can make a dress from meat, then why not a bunch of roses?

Crochet Ninja Turtle Beanie

Found this pretty cool TMNT beanie on Etsy by lpatch13:

Both Ninja Turtle beanie & eye mask are handmade with 100% acrylic yarn with my very own pattern! The hat and eye mask are 2 seperate pieces that can be worn over your eyes or pulled back on top of head/beanie. The eye mask is a complete circle made to wrap around head/face (but can also be made to connect in the back with velcro if specified).

The same shop also has sells a Castle Crashers Beanie:

That mannequin is really creepy…

Shutter Huggers

Anyone who has ever had to photograph a child know how difficult it is, you often have to resort to holding a stuffed toy up to get their attention. Why bother with a cuddly toy when you can make sure that they are looking right at the camera?

Shutter Huggers go around your DSLR lens and they give kids a reason to look straight at the camera. There are more on the site including a monkey and they are planning on releasing Mini Shutter Huggers for compact and phone cameras later this year.

The job market is cut throat, and every parent want to give their kid whatever edge they can to get ahead in it.

The above HTML for Babies and the below CSS for Babies are both available from Code Babies for just $8.99 they are also available at Amazon in the US but not in the UK 🙁
