Lego-Chess-Set

As kids, the only thing that held us back when building with our Lego sets, was our vast, childish imagination . . . oh, and our complete lack of skill in building anything that resembled what we had in our heads.  In fact, the only time something looked “right” was when our dads helped/took over.  It’s the act of creating that makes Lego bricks fun regardless of age.  If you’re ready to lay down some cash (okay, some serious cash) to show your love for the little plastic building blocks of your youth, perhaps you should invest in your own Lego Chess Set.  Completely made out of Lego bricks, this chess set is stylish and functional, and comes preassembled, so you can save your set for building castles with your kids or working on that personal model of Denise Milani (though you’ll probably need some more bricks).

BlackPods-CM-IF2-2-12

AirPods, Apple’s popular wireless headphones, get a fresh look thanks to BlackPods, a company that paints real Apple AirPods using a proprietary painting and finishing process. Available in matte black, space gray or high-gloss black finish, each pair is hand-finished and tested. Whether you’re sending in yours or ordering new, combining the flexibility of wireless headphones with the sleek and luxurious BlackPods look will make plain old white AirPods seem boring by comparison. Better yet, BlackPods gives you $30 off your order by joining their e-mail list. It’s time to upgrade.
