Jumanji

It's hard to believe, but next year will mark the 20th anniversary of the childrens' book adaptation Jumanji. And while the film starring Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt, David Alan Grier and a young Kirsten Dunst isn't exactly a modern classic, it certainly holds a nostalgic place in the hearts of many children of the 90s. Though many of the special effects in the film are laughable now, mostly the terribly crafted computer animated monkeys, they were state-of-the-art at the time, and helped make this jungle adventure fun for the whole family. And now you can commemorate your love of the movie, or the book, by purchasing an incredible handcrafted replica of the board game. It's truly a remarkable piece of woodwork.

JoBlo called our attention to prop maker Gemma Wright, who is offering this for sale:

In the jungle you must wait until the dice read five or eight…

And the great part is that there isn't just one board game available. She's actually making these herself and selling to anyone who wants them. However, getting ahold of one of these carefully crafted board games won't be easy. We contacted Gemma about how much it would cost to get ahold of one of these bad boys, and it'll take $950 out of your wallet to cover the labor and the materials needed to make the board game. That's a steep cost, but when you look at the craftsmanship on display, and know that she's not just churning them out of an assembly line, that's a reasonable cost. We just wish there was some jungle action.

I would only consider getting this if messages popped up in the black sphere in the center of the board.
