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 or 90s Acid House - Raver Look

With its squelching bass sounds (often created using a Roland TB-303 bass synth) and minimalist production, the sound of acid house first became popular in the latter half of the 80s, starting in 1987. The media were more focused on the illegal raves and psychedelic drugs, but in reality, a good many young folk enjoyed dancing to the new sound in nightclubs (including myself) without going anywhere near any drugs or illegal raves. What is synonymous with the acid house scene is the smiley face logo, and the T-shirt featuring the logo, along with tie dye and psychedelic clothing, and bucket hats which became popular with ravers. Baggy over the knee shorts were popular with men. Bandanas and dungarees/dungaree shorts were also worn by both sexes. Some ravers also had  yellow whistles . In the early 90s,  white overalls , hooded anoracks and  yellow dust masks with an "E" , smiley face or radiation symbol also became part of the rave scene. Initially, the dust masks we

Kia-Ora 80s TV Advert - I'll be your dog!

Anyone who watched British TV during the 1980s (or went to the cinema) will remember the Kia-Ora crows advert featuring the slogan "I'll be your dog".  You may well remember the Kia-Ora drinks in plastic cartons which the usherette used to sell in the cinema. They also sold them in our local youth club, although sometimes it was Tip Top orange, which kind of tasted like the carton.  The advert itself was pretty bizarre but also a lot of fun. It featured a child wearing a straw sunhat and carrying his belongings over his shoulder, while walking in the hot sun carrying an empty glass. Suddenly, a dog appears from nowhere and tips Kia-Ora orange into his glass. The sun wrings itself out into the glass to top it up.  A crow is following the child and shouts "Kia-Ora!". The child replies "It's too orangey for crows, It's just for me and my dog." The crow replies "I'll be your dog!", and then starts barking. As they continue to walk, an
