So we know that Pikachu refers to a species of Pokémon that are basically yellow rodent-like creatures with powerful electrical abilities. It made its first appearance in Pokémon Red and Green in Japan. Today, Pokémon Air was unveiled, and it’s a Pikachu toy unlike any other. Think of it as a rubber creature that you can ride around or lounge on, and it supports up to 220-pounds without any issues. There are no wheels, so you’ll have to put your hopping skills to the test if you choose the former.

Night at the Museum was first released in 2006, and this fantasy-comedy film directed by Shawn Levy garnered a large fanbase. It was based on the 1993 children’s book of the same name and stars Ben Stiller as Larry Daley, a divorced father who applies for a job as a night watchman at New York City’s American Museum of Natural History. This is where he discovers that the exhibits, animated by a magical Egyptian artifact, come to life at night. Now, it’s been turned into a 2,900-piece LEGO Ideas set.

Pierpaolo Lazzarini of Lazzarini Design Studio reveals his latest creation, the Avanguardia. This ultra luxurious swan-shaped superyacht is unlike any other that you’ve seen before, and it’ll cost you half a billion dollars to own. The sea vessel boasts five decks that can comfortably accommodate up to 60 people, and instead of a traditional control room, there’s a detachable head in front that allows the captain to maneuver the superyacht. When you want to go for a day trip, simply disconnect from the main vessel, and you’ve got a 50-foot cruiser.
The 5,544-piece LEGO Harry Potter Diagon Alley set was announced this week, and it has a hybrid design. There’s not only a versatile display model, but modular shops that let you arrange them however you like, whether it be all in a row or placing individual shops on different bookshelves. Fans will be able to recreate some of the most iconic moments, like discovering the wands at Ollivanders from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
You’ve probably heard of glamping, which is the portmanteau of “glamorous” and “camping”, but for those who haven’t, it’s basically camping with amenities with some resort-style services. Boomkamp, managed by Ika Merlin and Tobias Knockaert, aims to take that to a whole new level. Situated in a forest not far from Bruges, Belgium, this tree house hotel complex of sorts offers all that you need for a comfortable night’s stay.
