8-Bit Game Blankets Keep You Warm with Plenty of Pixels

by Paul Strauss

Looking for a way to keep cosy as the temperature starts to drop? Well snuggle up in front of your gaming system and bust out some classic games with one of these awesome video game inspired blankets or throws to keep you toasty.

They’re handmade by artist Ana Petree Garcia of iamduckydale, and feature scenes from classic arcade and console games from the 8-bit era. Each one is very well detailed, and every pixel you saw on screen appears in the acrylic yarn patterns you see here. My personal favorite is the Donkey Kong blanket, but her Space Invaders, Pac-Man/Ms.Pac-Man and Mario/Peach designs are also pretty great.

Each piece is made-to-order so can take up to a month for the throws and up to two months for the blankets to be completed. Prices range from $120 to $260(USD), and you can find them all over at iamduckydale’s Etsy shop.
