Real Leg Lamps

As a ten-year-old kid the first time I saw A Christmas Story, my reaction to Mr. Parker’s leg lamp was much like Ralphie’s. I too wanted one to illuminate our front window. Today, thanks to the Internet, this goal is now within reach.

Amazon has several models of the lamp to choose from, the biggest of which is this 45″ tall one that looks pretty close to the one that appeared in the movie. That one will set you back $150, plus shipping. If you’re looking for something to sit on your desk instead, there’s a 26″ model for $80 and a 20″ model for $40. For those with limited funds and/or space can pick up the nightlight version for only $12.99.

Major awards for everybody!
