If you are an engineer, mathematician, computer nerd, Trekkie, or bookish type - either by trade or by ambition - then you are going to love perusing the ThinkGeek ("Stuff for Smart Masses") online store.
This is one fun shop for intellectual folks...or those who wish to be.
As I scanned the ThinkGeek catalog, I found myself smiling (okay, laughing...) at all of the excellent geeky products and references.
I'm not sure if I fall into the nerdy category or not (If my sisters are reading this right now, they are all nodding their heads and saying that I most certainly do since I read voraciously, want to go back to school to get my Ph.D., and I get a kick out of playing Boggle...). Okay, so maybe I am a nerd. But I digress...
Anyway, here are some fun, educational, and reasonably priced stocking stuffers to consider for your kids this Christmas:
Astronaut Ice Cream ($2.99) - Available in three decadent flavors (neapolitan, mint chocolate chip, and chocolate, chocolate chip), this freeze-dried ice cream may or may not tempt their tastebuds. BUT they'll love the thought of munching on ice cream that lasts for three years and that can be enjoyed in space.
Glow in the Dark Mars Mud ($3.99) - This amazing substance stretches, bounces, and glows in the dark. If that's not instant entertainment for a child, I don't know what is.
Rubik's Cube ($9.99) - Calling all brainiacs! This little cube is bound to keep restless hands and minds entertained for hours. Can you beat the current world champion's time (20 seconds!)? The only way to find out is to try.
And that's just in the Geek Kids section, my friends. There's so much more to explore for the adults on your list...
