Dad Builds X-Wing Bed With R2-D2 Cooler for His Young Padawan

It must be great being born to a family of geeks, especially if the dad decides at some point to build an X-Wing bed with an R2-D2 cooler for his son.

Unfortunately, not much is known about the awesome geeky dad who has created this X-Wing bed, except that he goes under the name of DarthDaddy42. In this context, it might seem odd that he chose to build this project using one of the Rebel Alliance and the New Republic’s starfighters. Instead, some think that he should have chosen a TIE fighter as a model for the bed, but I’m willing to turn a blind eye on that, considering that a TIE fighter bed might have been more difficult to build.

The X-Wing might not be an exact reproduction of the ones used by the Rebel Alliance, but it’s impossible not to spot the similarities upon seeing it. The young Padawan must climb a stair in order to get into the starfighter’s cockpit. I only hope that the whole structure is reinforced and that the whole thing won’t crumble on the bed at some point.

One of the best things about the X-Wing bed is that the S-foils can be locked into attacking position. One side of the bed features AT-ATs, AT-STs and TIE fighters, so the geeky dad has not completely neglected the Dark Side.

The R2-D2 cooler looks pretty plasticky. In fact, its physical aspect is so childish one could say that this is R2-D2’s baby. Right after getting inside the cockpit, the young apprentice is able to watch the Star Wars saga and many other sci-fi flicks on the monitor that’s installed on the X-Wing.

The kid’s sheets are also themed, since they feature the Emperor, Darth Vader and some TIE fighters that are probably meant to protect the Padawan from even more evil creatures than the Sith Lords.

As you can see in the following picture, the young padawan who sleeps under the X-Wing is pretty excited about all this.

Personally, I think this is exactly the kind of education kids should get and this is exactly the kind of environment they should grow up in if they parents want their imagination and creativity to develop properly. Of course, there is room for improvements as far as the designs goes, so that DarthDaddy’s X-Wing looks closer to a real one.
