Donkey Kong Quilt… So That’s How Billy Mitchell Scores in Bed

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a really cool video game inspired quilt, so I was happy when I saw this one, which looks just like the game screen from the original Donkey Kong.

This 100% cotton quilt was made by David McFarling (aka “McFrogling“) and it features the likeness of DK himself, Jumpman (not officially known as Mario at that point), and the damsel in distress (definitely not Princess Peach.) The pixelated characters are placed into a larger-than-life setting of girders and broken ladders, just like in the arcade game.

It measures in at 60″ x 58″ and definitely would look good on a full size bed (or probably a queen too), so this isn’t just for the little kid’s room. I like how Kong id dropping a barrel nowhere near the plumber, so he hasn’t had to whip out the sledgehammer yet. On the other hand, it looks like the only ladder up is broken, so his chances of reaching his ladyfriend are pretty darned slim. Oh well, it wasn’t designed for its gameplay accuracy? Creative license and all, right?

If you want to cover you bed with some Donkey Kong goodness, head on over to Etsy, where you can order it up for $175(USD). While you’re there, hop on over and check out McFrogling’s just as fun Frogger and Super Mario quilts.
