Introducing The Sleep Walker

The problem with being a kid of the Star Wars generation is that our kids get to enjoy the fruits of our fandom. That’s a problem because we won’t get to sleep into an AT-AT bunk bed.

Hat Tip to Mrs. Earp, who amazingly found this piece of Heaven before I did.

This is the AT-AT bunk bed Geekologie reader Derek recently made for his four-year old son. As you can see, the kid looks pretty damn happy with it. And why wouldn’t he be? I slept in the garage on a pile of hay growing up and if I ever complained, my sister, who was sleeping in the car, would honk the horn until I cried.

Hit the jump for a bunch more photos of the construction process but a surprising lack of quality finished-product shots. Ahem, Derek!

If I was even remotely handy, I’d make one of these: for me, not my kids.

    I would seriously think about trading my Star Wars collection for a bed like that. It would be so cool to have an ATAT queen size bunk bed.

    Cathy – Oh, most definitely! You’d have to sleep in it while wearing Leia’s gold bikini, though . . .

    Dr. Evil – Forget a white noise machine. Fall asleep to the sound of AT-ATs walking.
