Please raise your tentacles and join the Department of Awesome Parenting in a round of chanting “Cthulhu fhtagn” to praise Imgur contributor rentdownstairs and his wife, who commissioned the creation of this outstanding Eldritch Crib. They wanted to have an heirloom to pass down to their children and nothing says “our family is awesome" like a monstrous crib inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft.

Atlanta-based woodworker Garrick Andrus designed and hand-carved this one-of-a-kind creepy crib. We love the tentacular shadows that its posts cast on the wall and that there’s a plush octopus already in the crib waiting to possess play with baby.
