Making soap in the likeness of retro game cartridges sounds like a really bad idea. I mean, do retro game enthusiasts really take baths? Just kidding, we know they do. Probably not as frequently as their wives and girlfriends would prefer, but we’re pretty sure they take showers, draw baths, and even lather their bodies up with soap while doing it. And we can’t imagine anything more fitting for cleaning soiled gamers than these Gamer Cartridge Soaps.
Rather than simply being molded in the shape of Super NES and Game Boy cartridges, the cleansing bars come with fine detailing, full color labels, and dust covers that make them look like the real thing. As in, if you went back a couple decades in time and gave this to a kid during the heyday of these consoles for Christmas, they’ll be jumping with joy. Of course, when they go to pop it in and the games won’t actually play, they’ll probably curse you to the depths of hell.
The Super NES version of the Gamer Cartridge Soaps measure a life-sized 12.5 x 2 x 1.5 cm, while the Game Boy version brings similarly accurate dimensions of 5.5 x 6 x 0.8 cm. Both are formulated from similar vegan-friendly ingredients, with an Energy Citrus fragrance that ensures you can smell your best the next time you exercise your leet skills playing Super Mario World on a Pocket Retro Game Emulator. Four Super NES games are available, namely Donkey Kong Country, Street Fighter II Turbo, Super Mario Kart, and The Legend of Zelda, while the Game Boy version brings Earthworm Jim, Kirby’s Dreamland, Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Red, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Land, and Tetris.
Firebox has the Gamer Cartridge Soaps available, priced at £12.99 for the Super NES version and £6.99 for the Game Boy version, respectively.
