Bugatti sports car light switch as seen on Top Gear

Bugatti light switch

It’s not often we use the words ‘novelty’ and ‘light switch’ in the same sentence, but that’s the case today.

This unusual Bugatti sports car design novelty light switch has proved to be a surprise hit since being featured on BBC 2′s Top Gear in December, with the yellow and black version selling out completely.

The shiny black and silver Bugatti light switch is now back in stock from creators, Candy Queen Designs, where you can choose which type of switch you’d like (dimmer or standard push on/off switch) and what background you’d like (Grand Prix flag or a map design).

If a Bugatti isn’t quite to your taste, then how about a red Porsche sports car or a VW camper van?

And if that’s not enough, Candy Queen Designs have all manner of other novelty light switches covered too (the mind boggles).

James May building lifesize Lego house

Lego House

Lego House

We were rather amused to read that Top Gear presenter, James May, is set to build a two storey life size house from Lego.

The house will be built in the Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, Surrey and will include all the usual home comforts, including a full size staircase, plumbing, power, a shower and toilet. 

They are still working on the logistics of a fully flushing Lego toilet, but James is hoping it’s possible, especially as he’s planning to live in the house for a few days. A massive total of three million lego bricks have already been delivered to the site for the construction of the house.

The lego house is the latest challenge James is undertaking for his BBC series, James May’s Toy Stories. Back in May, he famously built a garden entirely from plasticine for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show - and won the People’s Choice Award.
