If you went back in time and asked the six-year-old version of me what the perfect New York apartment would look like, I’d probably describe something akin to this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle-themed “Turtle Lair” in Tribeca, New York. Airbnb is currently offering TMNT fans a chance to stay at this kick-ass pad, and it’s jam-packed with tons of incredible amenities, including a TMNT arcade cabinet and a basketball court! The spot boasts three bedrooms, four bathrooms and even free pizza delivery. Read more after the break…

Fun fact: Did you know “ruddy” is a British word that we use in place of “bloody,” occasionally in instances when we think the B-word is too harsh? Personally, I use it because I think it’s ruddy hilarious. Much like this “Chill Bag”, a ruddy great big foam bag chair – it measures 96″ in diameter and 34″ tall, has a microsuede coating and is filled with a “furniture grade memory foam” (not “beans”). We weren’t aware memory foam was graded, but there you are.

We’re not entirely convinced it isn’t actually a Like Like in disguise.

Still, it looks pretty ruddy comfortable, and it’s available from Amazon for just shy of $509, which is pretty bloody expensive (see, that time it was justified because bloody hellfire that’s a lot of money).

This is Redditor BrooklynEWD‘s first attempt at a DIY project. As you can see, he skipped over “festive wreath” and went straight for “spaceship bed”.

You’re looking at the control room he made for his son, which may or may not be dangerous in a shocky/fire hazardy kind of way. Still, it looks ridiculously awesome and he’s working on making improvements to the design.

Take a closer look at the details of the project in the gallery below.

As a kid, I decorated my room with all things Star Wars, but Tankm and WingYew have managed to capture my childhood dream in LEGO form with these two bedroom designs.

Who am I kidding? It’s still my dream.

Charmed-Playhouses-5-800x500

Alberta, Canada-based Charmed Playhouses Inc. specializes in crafting dream treehouses and playhouses for children. Owner Tyson Leavitt and his team of designers work with the client to design the initial plans for the structure–they do everything from fairy tale towers to quaint cabins and more.

As you can see, the structures are enormously creative, and I love how they blend modern playground equipment like swings and slides with old-world design aesthetics.

Oh, and they do dog houses too!

star wars lava lamp

“I love lamp.”

“I know.”

What’s inside your average lava lamp? Lava, is it? Pfft. Boring. Anyone can have a lava lamp like that. How about a Star Wars lava lamp filled with X-Wings and TIE Fighters battling it out instead?

Check out the lamp in action below.

mario box light

Yes, this Mario Question Box Light exists. It’s officially licensed. You can even purchase it. Plus…PLUS it emits a classic 8-bit “PING” sound when you tippity tap it.

I’m sold, even though gold coins don’t pop out of it. Personally, I think that missing feature is a major oversight.

Mario Question Box Light ($36)

Are you a fan of keepsake boxes and treasure chests? I am. There’s something about a well-crafted chest/keepsake box (especially when it’s themed or has a surprise inside) that makes me happy. That’s why I love this musical Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time chest from AFKforCosplay.

This handmade chest is made from stained cedar, which is lightweight and rot/bug resistant. It measures 12″ x 10″ x 9″ and the music is light activated. There’s even a version that’s perfect for proposals.

See it in action in the video below.
