Two-time Oscar® Winner Tom Hanks* received his first Best Actor Nomination for his disarming turn as a 12-year-old man-child in Penny Marshall’s timeless, “hilarious” (Newsweek) delight. Tired of being a kid, Josh Baskin wishes he was big. When he wakes up the next day, he’s an adult! Now, Josh must hold down a job – and please a new boss (Robert Loggia). Tougher still, he must convince his best friend that he’s still himself, and explain to a beautiful woman (Elizabeth Perkins) who falls for him, that he’s not.
To help you prepare for the 25th anniversary edition of Big, we have created a list of must have bachelor pad toys, to help you get in touch with your inner child!
1. X-Box or Playstation.
No one is going to blame you if you want to hang out all day on the couch and have a FIFA tournament, skateboard with Tony Hawk or have a Mario Kart race day. Do what you want, you’re a kidault!
2. Indoor basketball Hoop
This is your house; no one can tell you not to bounce the ball inside! Nothing says fun like a casual game of “horse” with the guys!
3. Pool Table
A pool table says, “I’m fun, but I’m also mature.” This is the perfect big boy game for you and your buddies to have a beer and bond over. Guy’s nights just got way cooler.
4. Foosball Table
Joey and Chandler from “Friends” prove that a foosball table is a necessary toy to have in a bachelor pad. They get more use out of that thing that their refrigerator.
While these aren’t necessarily “toys” beanbags are essential for any bachelor pad. Where else are you supposed to sit while having an X-Box tournament or movie day?
Karaoke is perfect for entertaining! Hook up the microphone and pick a song. Maybe even a duet with that special someone!
