If your the kind of guy that loves to debate on who is the better captain, Kirk or Picard, this is the home furnishing for you. (It’s Picard by the way). Introducing the Inflatable Captain’s Chair from ThinkGeek.
You may already know ThinkGeek for their collection of science and geek related merchandise. And this is probably the geekiest of them all. For a mere $25, you can pretend you are the captain of the Starship Enterprise. Or your kid can, whatever.
If you don’t purchase, or even if you’re not a Star Trek fan, you should still check out this promotional video ThinkGeek made for the product. Funny Stuff.
Unfortunately for you, the chair will only support 120 pounds. (This guy doesn’t look to be 120 pounds)
You are the youngest Captain in Starfleet. Your Lieutenants gather around you, desperately vying for your approval and catering to your every whim. They go on Away Missions to distant worlds and return with strange new foods. (Rigelian cabbage? Yuck!) Then there was that Red Shirt that your Chief Momular Officer called “Uncle Joe.” Gosh, wasn’t he annoying with the relentless games of Got Your Nose? You couldn’t be more pleased that he never returned (and that you got your nose back before he left).
Galloping around the cosmos is a game for the young and you have your whole youth ahead of you. Take your seat in your Inflatable Captain’s Chair, assemble your bridge crew, and start exploring. Invented at ThinkGeek, this chair is suitable for wee geeks aged 3 to small adult, or up to about 120 pounds. The arms are printed with all sorts of buttons and and lights to encourage imagination play, including setting Red or Yellow Alerts or jettisoning the pod. All that’s missing is the most adorable Captain in the quadrant – your kid!
