"After three years, fans finally get the chance to see Carly's bedroom and all of the incredible one-of-a-kind objects specially designed for her," said Marjorie Cohn, President, Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group. "Getting a tricked out bedroom as cool as Carly's is every teen's fantasy come true."
Featured in Carly's awesome new bedroom is a hand-made, gummy bear chandelier made of approximately 10,000 hand-strung gummy bears; a bench modeled after a classic ice cream sandwich; a giant cupcake side table; a high-tech closet with a touch pad clothing selector; and a trampoline so Carly can literally jump into bed!
Immediately following "iGot a Hot Room," Friday, July 30, iCarly fans will have the opportunity to win the actual real-life items from Carly's hot new bedroom at Nick.com/iCarly. Nick.com will also launch the iCarly Hot Room Boutique where club members can get exclusive accessories and skins based on the items in her sizzling bedroom for their avatar.
In addition, beginning Monday, July 26, iCarly.com will feature a brand-new game inspired by Carly's love of gummy bears.

The site will also allow fans to throw their own iCarly birthday party with show-themed party ideas, favors and games.
In "iGot a Hot Room," Spencer sets out to make Carly's upcoming birthday the best she's ever had, especially after having ruined her last one. Spencer creates a special gift for his sister – a lamp made of gummy bears! However, Carly's birthday fun is snuffed out when the gummy bear lamp accidentally ignites and sets fire to her bedroom, destroying their grandmother's irreplaceable antique watch in the process. With the insurance money from the watch and help from Sam, Freddie and Gibby, Spencer builds Carly the coolest bedroom a girl could ever have.
