Rentdownstairs was expecting a new baby, so they commissioned Atlanta woodworker Garrick Andrus to carve this amazing tentacled crib out of walnut for the impending bundle of joy.

  1. By putting a child in that crib you are effectively giving it a FDA fit for Old One consumption stamp and then adding a neon sign and a sale sticker just in case good old uncle Moloch didn't notice. But hey, if the spawn of your loins somehow survives being placed in that thing at least they will forever thank you for scarring their very being with images of the outer realms and the things that dwell there.
