Dad Builds A Gigantic Nintendo Switch For His Son's Bedroom Television

A devoted dad created a special treat for his gaming-obsessed son by building a huge Nintendo Switch to surround the television on his bedroom wall.

Steven Beck, from Manchester, decided that his seven-year-old son Jesse's room could use a bit of a makeover, and decided to go way above and beyond in the process.

Have a look at that, it's a thing of beauty.

Using only some plywood and plastic, he successfully mounted the gigantic games console onto his son's wall, and it looks bloody realistic.

Even better than that, the two sides of the giant Switch open up to create some cupboards, so it is practical as well as being really cool.

Since then, Steven's creation has gone viral, with gamers the world over begging to know his secrets, or offering to pay him to make their own version.

He said: "Jesse is on his Switch all the time, he loves it.

"I'd already planned to do his bedroom up and I was able to get a lot of the materials from work."

For those who aren't aware, the Nintendo Switch is a console that you can either use as a handheld device, or plug into the TV to play on a larger scale.

Steven continued: "Just copying his actual Switch, I was able to use plywood to create shelves, so inside the structure, he could store the game discs and devices.


"The only things I really had to buy was the plastic and paint, and the vinyl letters for the buttons."

"When he saw it, I think he was a bit overwhelmed, he was so chuffed with it.

"Yet when he heard others were asking me to make them one, he begged me, 'Daddy, let me just have this one!' He loved it so much."


Given that Steven got a load of materials from his work, it didn't cost the earth, either. In fact, he reckons that it set him back just £71 for the whole creation.

In short, the sides are made out of plywood, and there's plastic sheeting and vinyl stickers to make the buttons look extra realistic.

The buttons are even rubber sealed for added authenticity.

Steven explained: "It only took me a day and a half, over the weekend, whilst Jesse was at his mum's, and that was mainly to accommodate drying.

"I certainly didn't expect it to go viral, but there's over 2.5k likes and 5k shares - I've even had people sharing it to groups, passing it off as their work!

"It seems with all the attention, there's loads of adults who want it, to make like man caves and similar - it's mad!"

Fair play, Steven LAD.
