Glow-in-the-dark bed will creep you out for Halloween

Bathe your bedroom in a ghostly light with a limited-edition glow-in-the-dark bed made to celebrate Halloween.

Sleep tight. Get Laid Beds

Are you afraid of the dark? It's a toss-up as to whether Get Laid Beds' glow-in-the-dark model will soothe your nightmares or create new ones. The bed is a limited-edition creation for Halloween. Only 50 will be made.

The wooden bed frame features a sickly green glow thanks to UV luminous paint. It charges up during daylight hours and radiates a soft light when it gets dark. The glow can last for a couple hours. The bed itself is made from solid pine and appears white with a very slight greenish tint during the day.

It's a perfect piece of furniture to complement your geeky Halloween decor, which may already include some zombie garden gnomes and a playable Tetris jack o' lantern.

Get Laid Beds' promotional photos for the product definitely lean to the creepy side. The company shows it staged against an old wood floor with worn walls and mysterious scribbles in the background. There's a lonely toy rocket sitting nearby.

You can imagine something with long fingernails and a raspy voice crawling out from under the bed. Either that, or you can imagine it as a friendly nightlight easing you into the night with its gentle radiance. Whatever helps you sleep.

There's a small universe of weird beds in existence out there. Many have Star Wars themes, like this Millennium Falcon bed for kids and a massive AT-AT bed made for a young Jedi. Nutty inventor Colin Furze unveiled a high-voltage ejector bed earlier this year designed to fling snoozing people out into the morning.

The glowing bed is intended for kids, but you can order it in any size, including a "Super Caesar" that's 9 feet (2.7 meters) long. The small child-size version runs about $438 (£283, AU$603). It will be available to buy through November 7. Get Laid Beds is located in the UK, but will deliver worldwide so you an scare the bejesus out of your kids wherever you happen to live.
