Smurf Mushroom House Bong

Based on this Smurf House toy[] I had a really good idea for a bong.

Basically to walk you through it, first look at just the house sitting there. Looks just like a toy, right? Well hidden inside is the sickest smoking device I have ever conceived. Basically you put a bowl into a hidden downstem behind the planter, in the second floor window and smoke out the chimney... So just add your own bowl and it goes from toy to bong in one seamless transition.

I know what your thinking right now.. "Cool, but its not that great, you are just smoking out of a mushroom house shaped bong." Well, in the words of Billy Mays: BUT WAIT, THERES MORE!

For you see, under the lid of said bong is a most complex little arrangement. Inside the roof of the bong there is a small water bottle, pipes, some wires and batteries.

The water chamber was difficult to start with because the water level is at the same level as the bowl, so I had to make a high U-bend so the water didn't just pour right out. I also had to make the container small enough to fit under the lid and still accessible to change out the water.

The battery and wires are hooked up to a switch which is just under the edge of the roof on the wall, so you can press it without taking off the lid, but is still hidden. The switch controls a light in the main chamber of the bong.

The main chamber, 'la pi├Ęce de resistance' if you will, of the bong. Inside the doors and windows, is the main chamber for the smoke. The windows and doors are sealed in with clear plastic cut from 2L pop bottles (see glare on image) so you can still open and close them without breaking the seal. If you look inside, you find 3 smurfs, each modified and repainted to look as though they are smoking. One is holding a pipe, one a joint, and the third a bong.

Now here is where it really gets cool. When you smoke out of it, the chamber fills with smoke. So when you look in, what do you see, but a bunch of smurfs hot boxing their mushroom house! And the very best bit is if you leave a little smoke in the chamber, as you pass, you can see little wiffs coming out the chimney!

So to sum up I guess its a mushroom house bong where 3 smurfs look like their hotboxing their house, and it even lights up! Looks sick in a dark room! Hope you enjoyed reading about this bong, and if you have any ideas for improvement, let me know!

Some ideas I already had were putting the address 420 on the outside, and what I would love to do is add furniture and decorations to the inside.. The issue being that there is such a limit on space and I dont want to make it look cheesy.

Happy Toking!
