Lets be honest, there’s a geek inside all of us! And on some the ‘geek’ shines through! And this is far from being a bad thing! Geeks are cool ūüėČ

For all the geeks in the world Think Geek is the perfect online store for you! Where else can you find apparel, gadgets, electronics, gags, toys that truly talk about you!?

ThinkGeek started as a way to serve a market that was passionate about technology, from programmers, engineers, students, lovers of open source, to the masses that helped create the behind-the-scenes Internet culture.”

Think Geek is a geek’s paradise! ūüėČ I have been to their website tons of times. I have my eye on some stocking stuffers for my boys. Yeah, they even have toys for the little geek in your life! I also found perfect presents for my husband’s birthday but I will have to keep quiet since he reads my blog.

Top, left to right: Book of Secrets, Humping USB Dog, C.H.I.M.P. Rearview Monitor Review.
Bottom, left to right: Electronic rock guitar Shirt, The Zombie Survival Guide (a must have), Marshmallow Shooter.

For our review my each of my boys got a toy: J got the Mozart Magical Cube and A. got the Creative Puzzle Peg, which is five puzzles in one!.

The package came tightly wrapped in a box. Remember those packing peanuts they sometimes put in boxes? Well, Think Geek does not use them, instead they use this air bags that are biodegradable! Which I totally love. Oh, and timing? The package got to us in record time!

J. loves his little Mozart Cube. On each side there’s a different instrument, except on one side, the bottom, where it says orchestra which makes all instruments play together.

The cube has 6 instruments and 8 compositions. If baby clicks on the piano button s/he will hear the piano’s portion of the composition. You can then click on the harp and the harp will join the piano and so on. Click on orchestra and all instruments play together. This is a great way to introduce little kids to classical music.

The Mozart Magical Cube really reminds me of the days when my dad would take over the car radio and he taught us about classical instruments. Thanks to my dad I know how to differentiate between a violin and a cello. In a way, this cube will do the exact same, it will teach your kid the sounds of the piano, harp, flute, violin, and the French horn.

A. was so into the Creative Puzzle Peg the moment I gave it to him. He has always been into this kind of puzzles. He was also really into the colors. When I first gave him the Puzzle Peg he started telling me all about them, pointing at the orange, and the yellow (aka yeyow), and the blues…

Each of the four pieces of the base has a post with little nubs on it. Each post has 2 pairs of nubs. One post has two pairs with 1 nub each, two posts have each two pairs of 2 nubs but their positions differ, and the fourth post has 3 nubs.

You have to match the slots with the nubs on the post and then twist the piece as it goes down to the bottom. It’s one step further than the usual sort and stack puzzle which completely frustrated A. but once he figured that out he was a happy boy!
