Funko’s Burnt Stay Puft Marshmallow Man Pop reps Ghostbusters into the 21st century

Who would have thought that a pint-size vinyl marshmallow poised in mid-scream could be so adorable? Here’s the Funko Pop Burnt Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in six-inch format, with an expression of such cute distress that you won’t be able to help but love him.

Re-experience the awesomeness of Ghostbusters like it came out yesterday. He’s so incredibly cute, you’ll want to make a s’more out of him. Special “burn” effects make him hyper-“realistic” — and campfire-proof, right? (Just kidding. Don’t light him on fire. Probably not the best idea.)

Who knew a disgruntled marshmallow could look so cute.

Back in stock! Ghostbusters Marshmallow Man Stay Puft bank

You asked for it! Here’s a reprise of the wildly popular Marshmallow Man coin bank, where the soft, sugary madman himself has been transformed into something both practical and eye-catching. Perch him on your favorite shelf alongside your other Ghostbusters collectibles — no one will know that he’s hiding your secret stash of laundry money or helping you save up for that weekend getaway.

The Marshmallow Man stands 10 inches tall and sports a maniacal grin, bent on destruction. Honestly, a spooky apparition has never looked so adorably disarming. So, who ya gonna call?

All white everything.

All white everything.

Ghostbusters Burnt Stay Puft Bank won’t let anyone near your spare change!

There’s nothing like the comforting smell of marshmallows roasting around a campfire, right? Well, this Marshmallow Man got burnt in an entirely different scenario! Cop this giant Stay Puft bank inspired by Ghostbusters, where the Man himself comes complete with a charred exterior so we know exactly where he’s been.

For a big puffy dude made out of fluffy confection stuff, he sure shows his battle wounds well. There’s a convenient slot for you to insert your coins, and at 11 inches tall, this Diamond Select Toys creation will be sure to keep your dimes and quarters safe so you can easily save up for that tropical vacay.

Beyoncé, Star Wars or Vonnegut? Valentine’s Day gift guide for your geeky significant other

Okay, so we all know that in some ways, V-Day is a big corporate scam to get you to spend money on useless stuff in the name of “love”. And when it comes to jewelry, it’s way easy to break the bank in a way that may force you to subsist on bananas and bagels for the rest of the month. But what if you still have a dear one beside you that would love a shiny token of your affection on February 14? Hey, maybe you’d like to receive one, too! Whatever your gifting dilemma, you don’t have to surrender your wallet to ~The Man~ to grab an awesome, original prezzie for your sweetheart or close pal that celebrates all the wonderful things they’re into. Check out these rad jewelry alternatives!

1. Heartbeats necklaces by Erica Weiner

Wanting to create affordable, vintage-looking jewelry with plucky pop-culture references, Brooklyn’s Erica Weiner started out as an art student and costumer for Broadway shows. She began making jewelry after work as a stress-relieving hobby, and now she works with eight to ten other women in her studio to bring her creations to life. Because we think it’s pretty cool to support all-lady owned and operated businesses, these badass Heartbeats lyrics necklaces get our stamp of approval. Whether your jam was sung by Fleetwood Mac, Beyoncé or the Talking Heads, you or your honey can wear some of your favorite lyrics around your neck. (I’ve got the R. Kelly one and I hardly take it off!) They’re $55 USD for oxidized silver for $65 USD for 24k gold-plated, so you can cop some lovely bling without hitting the triple digits. Nice!

3. Out of Print’s literary-themed neck candy

If your beloved’s always got their nose in a book, then Out of Print’s products (based on iconic and classic novels) will totally be their thing. I’m really digging the cursive “Doubleplusgood” necklace referencing George Orwell’s 1984, and this To Kill a Mockingbird inspired charm necklace. The special recipient of this gift can fondly recall The Bell Jar, The Catcher in the Rye, Alice in Wonderland and other legendary works of literature every time they look down. All of their pieces are approximately $30 USD, and if you throw in their Library Stamp tee, Out of Print will send a book to a community in need. Pretty fab!
