Pitfall! Atari Cartridge Throw Blanket Won’t Protect You from Crocodiles or Scorpions

Man, I loved Atari when I was a kid. I got all wrapped up in those games. And guess what? Now I can wrap myself up in Pitfall! for real and feel its cozy embrace. This Pitfall! Atari throw blanket is soft and comfy, but more importantly, looks just like the cartridge from the classic Activision game.

It looks like the game box too. So now you will know what that cartridge felt like while sitting on the store shelf. It felt warm and toasty. No swinging from vines and jumping on crocodile heads and leaping over quicksand for me. I prefer a good nap. Preferably an Atari themed one, where I can dream about all of those old games and star in my own adventure as Pitfall Harry – just like Jack Black. No scorpions inside, so no worries. No treasure either though, which sucks.

This blanket measures 60” tall x 48” wide, and while the game may have lasted only 20 minutes, you can use this blanket for as long as you want. It will help you avoid some of life’s pitfalls because it’s a jungle out there. Activision made some great games for the Atari 2600. Remember Kaboom and Stampede? How about Grand Prix? Yep, this brings back those old Atari memories.
