Pac Man / Donkey Kong / Space Invaders

May 14, 2009 at 9:52 am (Toys, Under $50)

I grew up on these games, much like your parents did. Except they probably played better than i did. I have an especially morbid fascination with Donkey Kong, PacMan and Space Invaders toys.

Any drinking glasses or mugs to pour alcohol into works too, especially if it’s vintage.

Hellraiser

June 7, 2008 at 10:13 am ($Expensive!, >$100, Toys)

In my opinion (and that’s what really counts, right?), Hellraiser by Clive Barker ranks as one of the most stylish horror movies ever made. The most famous star aside from Pinhead was the Lemarchand Configuration, or The Box. Open the box and you’ll be rewarded with all your filthy little desires. You also get screwed too. Big time. But isn’t that what life is all about?

Handmade from etched brass and mahogany wood.

The box itself is partially automated and it quite impressive to see in action. You can view the video of it being opened here.

399 Euros or $630 USD / hellraiserbox.net

Butt Station

Yes that’s what it’s officially called and no, i didn’t name it. If <i>I</i> did, it would be the “Kinky Sex-Toy Pretend Station Time Monitor” (In honor of bad Engrish).

Your life may be in shambles but at least your paperclips won’t be. That’s how the world works, you see.

NES Coffee Table Controller

May 9, 2008 at 2:42 pm (No Price / Custom Built, Toys)

The best way not to lose something is to blow it up 100 times in size and make it into a coffee table.

Somebody with a lot of time on their hands and a wild imagination (marijuana) came up with this nifty item- a fully working NES game controller that functions as a coffee table.

Check a video of the coffee table in action:

P.S. – If you can’t get the table, i’ll gladly take the girl instead.

iPod bOombox

April 25, 2008 at 9:41 am (>$100, Electronics, Toys)

I really should just write everything starting with an “i” so i can be as iCool iAs iApple… but i won’t.

Lasonic, one of the many companies responsible for the classic ghetto style boombox is gettin’ all futuristic and shizit with their iPod boombox, the i931.

Works just like the original, including the massive 10 D-Cell batteries required to run this bad boy. If the weight of it doesn’t kill you while walking down the street, a thug will as he robs you of yo blaster.

You go girl.

Teddy Lamp

He’s cute, cuddly and will end up setting your bed ablaze if you try to sleep with him. Another fine idea from SUCK UK.

Guess where the on/off switch is?

Gloom

February 18, 2008 at 12:32 pm (Already Purchased, Toys, Under $50)

From BoingBoing.com comes the best game ever, Gloom. Read on for the description:

“The object of the game, in fact, is to make your characters as miserable as you possibly can. Each player has a family, a group of characters that they then play event cards on…

The really interesting thing about Gloom is the story-telling aspect of game play. Though not required, when you play an event card such as “Terrified by Topiary,” you may explain how this event occurs. Each character develops as more and more event cards are placed on it, so the character’s life story becomes increasingly unfortunate and, well, abnormal.”

Reminds me of Edward Gory, though i don’t know why.

Kreepy Kewpie Doll

January 17, 2008 at 11:33 am (Toys, Under $50)

Kewpie dolls are cute, but partially autopsied Kewpies are just adorable. This one comes from Japan where little children are told by their parents that that’s what will happen to them if they don’t finish their cabbage and kimchee soup.
