Lather up with scented PlayStation soap

Geeky soaps selling on Etsy.com ranges in shaped from an old-school mobile phone (looks like a Nokia) to the PlayStation and Nintendo Entertainment System game controllers.

Game controller soap
Says the maker of the game controller soaps: "I found a high-quality source of soap base and have now combined two interests: a love of all things geeky and a love of being clean." Etsy.com

These are coined as "personal cleansers" by Digitalsoaps at handmade-crafts site Etsy.com, though we believe they're nothing more than uniquely shaped hand soaps. The selection ranges from an old-school mobile phone (looks like a Nokia) to the PlayStation and Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) game controllers. These are also available in a wide variety of colors that include semi-translucent shades and a plain-vanilla matte finish.

Prices for these soapy contraptions go from $1.50 for a calculator up to $18 for a twin NES controllers gift set, and they do ship internationally. I wonder if they are really effective at removing the grime after a full day of sweat-drenched gaming or are just another decorative item. Anyone interested in giving it a go?
