A few months ago, I had the privilege of playing a five-story-tall version of classic video game Space Invaders at Manhattan's Come Out and Play Festival. In the time since then, it appears that the trend has taken hold. Blik is selling a line of wall decals in the shapes of Space Invaders good guys and bad guys, in an array of Atari-worthy hues, which you can stick and unstick on the walls of your kitchen, living room, bedroom, or whatever-room at will.
They were featured as kiddie room decorations on Babygadget, but this grown-up (ha, ha) would totally go for the black-and-white versions to complement the tiles on my kitchen floor. And at $45 for a set of 8 decals, it's cheaper than repainting.
Also worth craving: the Space Invaders wrapping paper that Uncrate reported on back in September. You know, if both Babygadget and Uncrate are featuring Space Invaders-inspired items, it really must be a far-reaching trend.
