Super Splash Bros? These aren't games, they're soaps

This is something we'll have to get for GamesRadar's Bath office. No, really, we actually do work in Bath, but obviously that's too good not to mention here. Why? Because these are video game-inspired soaps for use at bath-time! Or should I say... Ocarina of (bath-)Time? Yes, the puns are out in full force. Bath puns. Mmmm... tasty.

These cartridge-shaped soaps are vegan-friendly, but if you eat them, you're an idiot. Find another way to cleanse your palate. They're also hand-crafted in the USA, but exclusive to Firebox in the UK. From N64 carts all the way down to Game Boy--which come in little plastic cases like real GB games did--they look so authentic, you might not know at first glance that they aren't the real thing (though the smell might give the 'game' away). Even though they're the right size, I wouldn't recommend putting them in a real N64 or Game Boy. That is not how you 'clean the contacts'. Also, don't store them next to your razor. You don't want to corrupt your shave file.

At £9.99 a pop (sop?) for an N64 cart version, these aren't exactly cheap. And I wouldn't recommend spending all that money and then actually using them, as they'll pretty much immediately turn into blue or grey bars of soap with a sticker on them. But maybe you're rich and fancy a game of 'Soapy Mario Kart', or perhaps wish to pamper a loved one with 'Freshen Up Zelda: A Link to the Bath.' And maybe the range will extend to disc releases so we can enjoy Sudrayne. Or... OK, feel free to add your own gaming soap puns in the comments. Mine are all washed up.

Do you have something really cool that you'd like to share with us? Let us know! Maybe we'll even post it. You can email us at or find us on Twitter @gamesradar.
