Bedtime for new parents can be terrifying at the best of times, but imagine putting your newborn to sleep in this shark cot!
This incredibly realistic cot was crafted by sculptor and set builder Joseph Reginella for his best friend’s son. Inspired by the tragic goings-on in Stever Spielberg’s classic movie, he made the frighteningly realistic shark-attacking-boat cot for Mark Maleccio’s baby boy.
And judging by the photos, once his initial shock wore off, the little fella was pretty chuffed with his unique bed.
The bed was made some years ago, and Mark offered an update on the saga, sating his son now loves sharks and is ‘probably the most badass kid you will ever meet’.
Mark, a pro-wrestler, says Jaws is his favourite movie and as a kid, watching it more than 30 times in just one summer. He says Joseph is his best mate, and his son Mikey’s godfather, basically his honorary uncle. He says while he and his wife have a great sense of humour and loved the cot, they of course didn’t make Mikey sleep in it.
You’re gonna need a bigger boat …
Not content with just one nightmare-inducing sleep spot, Joseph, who’s from Staten Island, New York, actually created a larger version, which is able to sleep an older child. Comforting!
Oh, and in case this is something your baby would love, Joseph is actually making Jaws beds to order.We may get commissions for purchases made using links in this post. Learn more.
