Yes, it’s a homemade Ghostbusters Pillow Proton Pack from etsy seller, JezebelRose. Just in time for back to school! Except, hmm, I’m not sure it can actually carry any of your books. If you buy the additional Ghost Trap though, you could, uh, carry your ghosts with you. (Nerd Approved)
It’s a TARDIS stash box! “When unlocked the TARDIS light flashes and the sound of the TARDIS re-generating can be heard. While locked the TARDIS light gently pulses. ” Awesome! But maybe not for hiding something you’d like to be discreet. (Nerd Approved)
