Man, I wish I had these D20 String Lights when I put up my tree the other day. Part of my brain is like “there’s still time!” while the other part is like “re-stringing lights would be a pain in the ass!”.

Okay laziness, you win this round.

If you’re more ambitious than I am, now is the time to grab them. These are the kind of string lights you can have fun with year round. The bulbs can be easily replaced and the lights can be used indoors or out. [click to continue…]

Black Hole Plush, won’t you come and devour my Celestial Buddies?

If you aren’t familiar with Celestial Buddies, they are adorable plush characters based on planets in our solar system. I know, you already want to collect them all.

Fortunately, you can put them all in the new Black Hole, which is basically a plush bag with eyes that can hold your collection. But the best part is that you can actually retrieve the planets from this black hole, though you may end up in a different universe. Check out a pic of the buddies below. [click to continue…]


Fans of Overwatch‘s terrifying Reaper will definitely get a kick out of this premium 12-inch collectible statue. The limited-run statues are available to pre-order now but will ship in two separate waves: one next March, and the other next September.

The price tag is steep ($150) but the craftsmanship and level of detail might be worth it. Take a closer look in the video below. [click to continue…]


In this version of Harry Potter, the Sorting Hat is one of those stupid pointed nightcaps with a fuzzy ball on the end. Hogwarts classes take place in your dreams (you are constantly late and panicking because you can’t remember where to go for some reason) and Voldemort is Freddy Krueger.

Comforters are available in Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin styles in Twin/Full or Queen/King sizes. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Earlier this year we talked quite a bit about the official Labyrinth board game from River Horse, but getting the game out to eager fans has been a bit problematic. The good news is that ThinkGeek currently has it in stock for a reasonable price. I’m thinking interested parties should jump on it quickly.

Now, board game fans can honor Bowie’s memory and their favorite 80’s fantasy puppet opera, with a cooperative board game by Alessio Cavatore. In Jim Henson’s Labyrinth Board Game, you can play as Sarah, Hoggle, Lugo, or Sir Didymus, and work together to rescue baby Toby from the Jareth, the Goblin king.

Cavatore designed the cooperative game for one-to-four players, but a fifth player can act as Jareth himself, and work against the others to keep the baby for himself.

The pieces are beautifully sculpted 3D models of the characters. Gameplay involves 13 turns – one for each hour that Sarah has to find her brother – and an assortment of magical adventures through the labyrinth and then through the castle itself.

Jim Henson’s Labyrinth Board Game ($49.99). Check out more pics and a gameplay video below. [click to continue…]
