We at Iconic Gifts loved this Ironman ironing board when we saw it on Firebox.
Whilst it is a bit of fun, it does have a practical aspect, in that the shape certainly does lend itself to easier ironing. Plus it comes in a range of patriotic livery!
Retailing for £100 ($185) it’s described as follows:
“Ironman is shaped like a human form – which makes sense when you consider most clothes are designed to cover one. So unless you buy your threads at Two-Headed Octopuses R US, you’re laughing.
Ironman Ironman’s unique shape makes ironing easy and his broad chest provides a greater surface area for ironing shirts, skirts and linen. Better still, his legs allow you to slip over trousers and shorts for ultimate de-creasing. You’ll be amazed at the flawless results you can achieve. Crisp collars? Sharp creases? Perfect pants (well, we iron ours)? They’re easy with Ironman.
Ironman Featuring an ultra-strong woven steel mesh ‘body’ on a sturdy but lightweight tubular frame, this chic design icon is adjustable from 95cm down to 70cm, so you can iron with ease, no matter how tall you are. There’s even a handy hole in Ironman’s head to prevent pesky cords from cramping your style. This also allows you to hang Ironman up for storage or display. That’s right, we said display. Because as well as his uniquely modish shape, Ironman is available in several eye-catching designs including: Fireman Red, Sailor Blue, Union Jack and Stars & Stripes. He really is far too cool to shove in the broom cupboard.”
Ideal gift for youngsters embarking on university life, or maybe a bachelor with a sense of humour!
