Legend of Zelda Nursery

Yoshi NurseryLast year, Epic Games Engine Tester Wes Swain created an amazing Yoshi’s Island Nursery for his baby daughter.

It took a little over four months to complete and includes a custom made mobile with a Lakitu created with Sculpey, LCD screen and re-purposed SNES controller. A small motor drives the baby Yoshis.




Wes’ friend Cole Bradburn and his wife are expecting a son and Wes and Cole set out to create a Legend of Zelda nursery for the baby.

Wes drew the amazing artwork freehand and together they worked over 150 hours to complete the project.

Cole said on his blog, “My awesome friend Wes – who did the Yoshi’s Island nursery for his daughter – made all this possible. I was able to tell him my vision for the room, and he took it out of my brain and put it on the wall… exactly as I imagined it.

The amazing art that you see is his, he sketched all of it on the wall freehand! He also did the painting save for base coats, some under layers, and the clouds.

I’ll never be able to properly thank him. In total, we spent over 150 hours on the room over the course of 3 months. It feels good to be finished.” The nursery was even a featured story today on Kotaku.

      I wish they allowed us to paint our rooms at NC State
