ThinkGeek is one of the most incredible stores I’ve come across online in the last few years. Of course I found it through a horde of my geek friends who have been stocking their toys in their offices. You’d think people work in offices but sometimes I really wonder if they mostly just shoot each other with Nerf guns and annoy each other with little beeping gadgets like the Annoy-a-tron. Having spent years in an office myself, I suppose it is the best way to keep from going mad inside of a cubicle.
Every Christmas I shop at ThinkGeek so of course I wanted them to be a part of the Holiday Event and I am incredibly honored that they said yes. My teens wishlist is always found there and he covets the magazines that come in the mail as if they were holy scrolls, even my Mother shops there. If you are looking for something unforgettable and unique, you will never go wrong with shopping at ThinkGeek for gifts.
Plus you get Geek Points! Each item purchased comes with a certain number of points and when you get enough points you can trade them in on your next purchase for free items. Last year I got Grown Your Own Worlds Hottest DIY Pepper and Shower Shock Caffeinated Soap for free! These were absolutely perfect Stocking Stuffers for my husband who loves the Shower Shock soap and hot peppers.
I was given a chance to review four items from ThinkGeek, but in this review I will showcase two of them and then show the others next time. The first item I was given to review was H2Goo – Bathtime Fun, it turns water into safe and non-toxic colorful gel.
I couldn’t really get my toddler in the bath but Cody LOVED it. Love with capital letters, he had so much fun sitting in a bathtub of Goo that it’s kind of hilarious.
- For Ages 5 and Up
- Turns bath water into colorful gel for a tub full of fun
- Special powder soaks up 400 times its weight
- Won’t clog pipes, stain fixtures, linens, or kids
- Safe and non-toxic – actually softens skin!
- Includes 1 packet of goo, 1 packet of dissolver
- Choose: Red, Pink, Blue, or Green Goo
Using H2Goo is simple. Fill the bathtub with water. Add your child(ren). Pour in the packet of magic powder. It will soak up 400x its weight, turning the water into a colorful and gooey gel. It’s safe, non-toxic, and actually makes skin softer! Best of all, parental units, H2Goo will not stain fixtures, towels, or kids. When bath time is done, add the included dissolver powder and the goo will disappear, reverting back to plain bath water.
The next item I reviewed was a K9 MeteorLight LED Ball. I have to admit that I did not get this ball for a K9 furry friend. I got this ball for my son Judah who loves balls and bright colors and the two together was just great! He was so excited just to hold it and watch it change color and he’d shout out the colors one by one as they changed. I’m sure that a K9 furry friend would love this ball, but for me… I think it would make a great Stocking Stuffer for little tots who want a magic ball!
- A durable, color changing ball for your doggies and you to play with.
- Made of extra durable rubber for fun dog play (but not to be used as a chew toy).
- Water resistant ball – hey, it floats!
- Micro chip controlled LED cycles through the color spectrum.
- Batteries: 2 x DL2016 (included)
- Dimensions: 2.55″ diameter
