Plush Frogger Frog on a Log
I’m a sucker for anything related to classic arcade video games. If I only had all of those quarters back (and invested them wisely,) I would be a very rich man. Regardless, I figure I’m pretty rich thanks to all of the fun times I had playing them.

Living Cube is an All-in-One Living Space
If you’re strapped for space in your flat, then the Living Cube might just be the thing for you. It’s still a one-of-a-kind build for now, but you should be able to make your own or have one made if you’ve got the carpentry skills.
