Teenage Mutant Ninja Duvets

Being a parent is awesome, especially when your offspring like the same stuff that you enjoyed at their age. In this case, my seven year old LOVES the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Sadly this isn’t the 80’s animated version from my youth, but rather the 2012 update.

No matter though, his love for TMNT grants me a special connection that extends to everything – even to pillow cases and duvets! After upgrading the theme in my son’s room, we bought him lovely new bedding featuring his favourite half-shell heroes. He was happy, but I couldn’t help feel a little annoyed about the lack of choice we had.

Could we only purchase items depicting the modern interpretation of the characters? Thankfully not! Official channels are a little lacking in retro Turtle, but if you look further afield, you can find some totally bodacious fan-made and vintage bedding.

Here are a few items that I’d like to see in my room

Vintage Sheet, over on Etsy, hopefully not soiled in the 90’s

In the market for some vintage pillow cases? Etsy again has you (ahem) covered!

Need a cushion? Made from an old T-Shirt? or hand-made from vintage fabric?

There are hundreds of items like these on sites like Etsy, but in my opinion the really good stuff can be found with the Print-on-demand online retails like RedBubble and Society6.

How about some duvet covers from Society6?

And to finish off the room, why not grab a good looking clock from RedBubble?

I could easily add another 50 images, covering everything from curtains to canvas prints, floor rugs to lamp shades, and beyond. But the purpose of this post is to open your eyes to the possibilities!

And if you can’t find what you’re looking for? Go create your own designs, upload them and buy your own products! The duvet cover at the start of this post is one of mine. I didn’t create the pixel design, that one is from Konami’s arcade TMNT game, but I did a little processing work and added some colour, and now I can sleep in pixelated style!

Cowabunga Dudes!
