Remember a little earlier this year, when Google dedicated their Google Doodle to Pac-Man? That particular Google Doodle was so popular that a study by Rescue Time estimated that playing it led to five million hours of wasted work time.
It’s a testament to the ongoing popularity of the 80s game, which this year celebrated its 30th anniversary.
To celebrate Pac-Man hitting the big 3-0, here’s some of our favourite Pac-Man inspired products.
Over the years, I’ve lusted over many a Moleskine notebook. The classic notebooks are known for their timeless quality, so it was an excellent move to adopt the theme of the time-defying Namco® game.
There’s a number of styles available, including this black ruled notebook (Amazon, £10.78) featuring Pac-Man and Ghost, and a Volant Gift Set (Amazon, £22.09) of four soft back notebook designs in yellow, blue, fuchsia and red. Each book also comes with a set of exclusive Pac-Man stickers.
Pac-Man Apple MacBook Vinyl Sticker
We’re big fans of vinyl stickers here at Dork Adore, whether it’s wall decals or decorations for your gadgets (see Lauren’s post on customised skins). Heading to Etsy, I came across this chomping sticker, based around the famous Apple logo.
Etsy seller GoatGrinStudio is the genius behind this Pac-Man sticker (£4.50 + p&p), available in several colours.
Pac-Man Heat Changing Mug
Ok, it’s slightly tacky, but I love a bit of heat changing magic. So this Pac-Man Heat Changing Mug (Firebox, £5.99) is a pretty awesome idea. Especially if you’re struggling for a Secret Santa gift in a few months time.
The cold mug displays the classic Pac-Man maze. Add some heat and the yellow critter and his arch enemies will appear.
