…Vacuums are fun to hunt?

Kirby Trophy

For some reason, this Vintage 1979 Kirby Vacuum Hunting Trophy reminds me of the creatures from the Esuvee commercials. I’d love to mount either of them on my wall, but especially this vacuum cleaner, complete with front mount functional night light.

…Nintendo makes a Monopoly for the gamer in you?

Nintendo Monopoly

Monopoly and Nintendo have combined forces and created Nintendo Monopoly, the classic board game but with a Mario twist. The board features some of Nintendo’s most popular characters, including Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Metroid, Kirby, Star Fox and Wario. Plus, the pewter game pieces are modeled after a Donkey Kong barrel, Link’s boots, a Hylian Shield, an NES controller, Mario’s hat, and a Koopa shell. It’ll makes you want to be an eight-year-old tyrannical monopolist all over again, buying up everything you land on until the other players have no choice but to concede a shameful defeat.
