Rubik's Cube Inflatable Seat

Not available in the U.S. - sorry!

If you would like to add a touch of fun 80s style to your home then I have something here that will make you jump out of your chair with excitement - then you can sit back down again on this inflatable seat which looks like a giant Rubik's cube! However, please note that this chair is designed for children up to 10 years old, and is not large enough for an adult - the size is 40 x 40 x 40 centimetres.

Unlike many inflatables, this is made from plush velour material (which is washable) which makes it softer to sit on, although the material is quite thin. By the way, this is the official design from Rubik's Cube themselves.

After pulling out the seal near the bottom, you can inflate the seat using your own breath, but I would really recommend using a pump.

Now, I know a good many people who really would like to get their hands one of these, and it would be great as an extra chair in a child's room, or to add some quirky 80s decor to a room, particularly if you're planning on throwing an 80s party, of course!

After the Ideal Toy Corp bought the license to sell the cube in 1980, it quickly became the biggest-selling toy in the world. There are now literally hundreds of cube-related gifts available which shows just what an incredible design it is. The 3D puzzle was invented in 1974 by Erno Rubik and was originally called The Magic Cube. It first went on sale in 1980 as Rubik's Cube which is why it became synonymous with the decade.

Blondie - Debbie Harry - 70s and 80s Fashion Photos

Embed from Getty Images Debbie Harry Fridge Magnet Back in my school days (yes, it was a long, long time ago!) many kids associated Blondie purely with lead singer Debbie Harry, although Blondie was actually a band, and a damn fine one, too. It's not hard to see why. After all, she oozed sex appeal and became a style icon, and many of her looks can still be seen on the high street today. Harry's designer friend Stephen Sprouse can claim responsibility for many of those looks. He created every style you can imagine using denim, black leather biker jackets, camoflauge, wayfarer and aviator shades, pink and girly styles, nautical stripes, animal print catsuits - the list goes on! I find it amusing that in 1998 Britney Spears caused controversy by wearing a school uniform for her video "Hit Me Baby One More Time". How quickly we forget that Debbie Harry had done this two decades earlier! After forming in 1974, Blondie became pioneers of the punk and new wave s

Create an 80s Aerobics Fashion Look

Let's Get Physical 80s Workout Costume During the early 1980s, it felt like the whole world had gone aerobics crazy. Females everywhere donned leotards, leggings, headbands and legwarmers, and some were even on rollerskates! Pop stars and actresses were responsible for starting the craze. Olivia Newton-John started a headband fad after the release of here raunchy Physical video in 1981, and the song quickly became an aerobics anthem. And just about every home had a Jane Fonda workout video in their collection - often proudly on display on a book shelf in the living room, or carefully placed on a coffee table for all to see. However, contrary to popular belief, not everyone was wearing neon. Take a look back at the old workout videos and you'll see a whole range of colours and styles being worn. Some leotards were shiny, some had stripes and others were pastel. Zebra stripes, leopard print, and splatter paint designs were also worn by some. There were often (but not always)

Create Your Own E.T. The Extra Terrestrial Costume

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial was the highest-grossing movie of the 80s, and many regard it as one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. The Spielberg classic tells the story of a lonely boy named Elliot who becomes friend with a stranded extra terrestrial who needs to get back home - we all remember that classic "E.T. phone home" moment, don't we? If you're looking for a unique costume idea for a 1980s, sci-fi or film and TV party or event, or maybe Halloween, then an E.T. costume should fit the bill for both men or women. Adult Elliot Costume (US) Adult ET Costume (UK ) Now, you can buy a ready-made ET outfit from Amazon UK or Amazon.com. However, although it's convenient, it's also pretty expensive, and you can very easily create your own costume for a fraction of the cost. You'll notice that ET is wearing a red hoodie and blue jeans in the picture above for the UK costume. However, in the film, it is Elliot who wears this, and
