7. Pac-Man vinyl stickers
The Pac-Man wall art decal vinyl sticker home decor wallpaper is awesome. Made of high quality vinyl, waterproof, self-adhesive and removable, decals can be applied to any clean, smooth, flat surface (wall, windows, furniture, mirrors or fridge). An excellent decoration item for your home, office or show window, you can arrange the stickers as you like. The sizes are – Pac-Man (5.8″), Ghost (5.4″ x 6.2″) and cherry (5.4″). The only drawback is that the decal cannot be reused. If you want to peel it off from the wall, blow it gently with a hair drier so that the adhesive can dissolve a little, making it easy to remove.

Using the famous image of Pac-Man, the Poufman living room set created by Italian company, Qayot, is a true tribute to pop culture and its influence on our generation.

10. Pac-Man Cocktail Table
Here is a tripleheader cocktail table that lets you play Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man and Galaga in their original forms. Extreme Toys for Boys is offering this cocktail table unit which looks just like the original but with the latest technology at a sale price of $3,600. However, we’re not sure why it’s called the 20th Anniversary Edition because the three games came into the world much earlier than that.
