Our friends over at ThinkGeek have released a new Star Trek item — an inflatable captains chair. Modeled after Captain Kirk’s seat on the bridge of the Enterprise in Star Trek: The Original Series, the chair holds up to 120 pounds.
When inflated, the chair measures approximately 27.75″ high x 29.25″ wide x 18″ deep and sells for $24.99.
Available now at ThinkGeek.
Description and specifications:
Reach for the stars, wee Captain!
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!
