Space Invaders, Mario and Pac-Man Stick to Your Fridge
June 10th, 2008
These classic video game characters escaped out of the confines of their respective 8-bit homes, and have landed on kitchen appliances around the world.
Each of Spooons’ handmade refrigerator magnets features the pixel-perfect likeness of a retro gaming icons, carefully color-matched and precisely scaled to match the exact proportions of the originals. With enough of these on your fridge, you can recreate complete scenes from the original games.
As an added bonus, they get their stickiness using strong neodymium rare earth magnets, so these suckers shouldn’t fall off your fridge when you slam the door. In case your ice box is on the fritz (or you just don’t have one), you can pick up the same game characters in button form, so you can wear ‘em on your clothes or backpack.
Both the magnets and buttons measure 1.5″ in diameter, and magnet sets will set you back around $10 to $12, while the buttons sell for $8 to $10 a set. Check out the full collection over on Spooons’ Etsy shop.
