Tiny, transforming apartment made huge with massive wheeled storage-compartments

Yolanda Pila's tiny Madrid apartment is now a transforming, five-room space, thanks to the addition of novel, rolling, track-mounted storage units that hold all her possessions as well as a murphy bed, and can be rolled around to rearrange the space as needed.

Plush, hooded superhero bathrobes


If the fleece hooded Captain America bathrobe wasn't to your taste, perhaps you'd prefer Batman, Harley Quinn, or Deadpool? $50 each from Thinkgeek.

Papercraft R2-D2 dreidel


The downloadable PDF pattern for making your own droidel comes from Bonnie Burton's excellent Star Wars Craft Book.

D20 rug


The Critical Hit D20 rug is 43"x38", with a non-skid backing, and ensures that your living spaces always make their saving throws.

Chewbacca rugs

Princess Leia apparently decided the "walking carpet" should just become a carpet: it comes in 6'x3' or 8'x4', for $100/$150.

Sailor Moon hip-flask


The 8 oz stainless steel flasks are $27.50 and sport an etched Sailor Moon logo -- they come with a free funnel that the seller will etch with your name (or, presumably, any other pithy thing) at no added charge.

Plush Minecraft blocks


The 20cm^3 plush Minecraft TNT block is covered in suede-effect polyester and stuffed with soft foam; for something less explosive, try the Chest or the Log (or get the 10cm set with Grass, TNT, Diamond and Creeper blocks).

R2D2 measuring cup set (legs become measuring spoons!)


The $20 R2D2 measuring cup set decomposes into four measuring cups and his legs turn into four measuring spoons.

This set of R2-D2 Measuring Cups disassembles into 4 measuring cups plus 4 measuring spoons and reassembles in a snap (fortunately, it's not as complicated as C-3PO). Each has its measurement written inside so you can't forget what they are and handles on the back that don't distract from R2's aesthetic. The only problem we can foresee with these is that if you show somebody else your R2-D2 Measuring Cups, you may have to install a restraining bolt to keep them from wandering off.

Thinkgeek's $20 Zombie Bookends are reminiscent of the Knob Creek Metal Arts line, but are less than one third of the price (though Knob Creek has much better sight-gags).
