Question Mark Block Lamp Doesn’t Generate Coins or Mushrooms, Still Cool

You ever have the urge to just punch your bedside lamp? Well, if that’s a problem for you, you might not want to get this Mario Question Mark Block lamp, which makes that urge all the stronger. Unlike in the game, you won’t get any money or mutant, oversized, and possibly toxic mushrooms out of it, but you may get a few splinters. If you can manage to not jump and upper-cut it from underneath, however, your room can get +10 swagger.

The lamp’s frame is made out of poplar, while its surfaces are made out of colored paper with a translucent acrylic coating. Far from generating money, this lamp will actually cost you $68 if you decide to pick one up on Etsy. That being said, it’s a small price to pay to have a nice chunk of your childhood ripped right out from the screen and turned into a practical little lamp. I’d rather a Chaos Emerald lamp, but I’m a Sega-loving heathen, so there’s that. Even so, I have to admit, this looks pretty cool.
