Making Mealtime Meaningful: Discover how we're giving back with the 12T Cares program →

There are certain things that will make you wonder who the target audience is supposed to be. We see it all the time when it comes to various items that seem like a child’s fever dream.

Take this ping pong set from the good folks at Louis Vuitton, for instance. Who on earth has this kind of money to spend on a ping pong set these days?

Yes, we are admitting that this item is a bit out of our price range and there is nothing wrong with that. We are sure that some of our readers feel the exact same way. Those who are willing to purchase this ping pong set should be prepared to fork over a pretty penny, too. Can you believe that this set sells for a whopping $2,280?

That’s the type of thing that is sure to make a lot of people laugh and shake their heads. It’s not like most of us can fathom spending over $2,000 on something that is this frivolous.

We are squarely in the midst of a wild era. Luxury fashions are everywhere you look, whether we are discussing the Kanye West collaboration with the Gap or the new silly earrings that Balenciaga is pushing on us.

Luckily, we do not have to spend a lot of time and effort thinking about these items because they are out of our price range. This isn’t even the first ping pong set that Louis Vuitton has offered up. The earlier iterations came in black and grey, while this new set comes in the classic Louis Vuitton color scheme that we all know and love.

“The exclusive design of the James ping pong set wins match point for prestige and functionality. “This expertly crafted set of two table tennis rackets features a Monogram canvas cover and holder for four balls, which are also included. The zipper and wood handles both display an LV Circle,” the product description reads.

The sets have been crafted from golden-colored hardware, natural cowhide, canvas, and wood. The materials are not that expensive but that is not the point!
