Doctor Who TARDIS Mini Safe
The Doctor has always used a key to secure the TARDIS, but it's changed shape and size over the course of his 900-ish years. It's gone from a standard Yale key (like a real police box would have) to a spade shaped silver key to a double helix and back to the standard Yale key again. But one thing never changed: that one key was the only thing able to unlock the amazing vehicle known as the TARDIS. This TARDIS Safe will allow you to lock some of your prized possessions away from friends, family, coworkers, and alien life forms. Rest easy knowing that only you hold the key. When locked, the light on top pulses gently, awaiting your return. Turn the key and the light will flash and the distinctive vworp vworp vworp will play as the interior of the TARDIS is revealed. Product Specifications Keep your stuff safe from friends, family, and aliens Lock valuables inside the Doctor's TARDIS Only you have the little key that opens the TARDIS When unlocked, the TARDIS light flashes and re-materialisation sounds play When locked, the light gently pulses Batteries: 3 AA (not included) Dimensions: approx. 9" tall

This TARDIS-shaped notebook is perfect for keeping track of your timeline, or just writing down your dreams of traveling through time and space with a 900-year-old alien...

Multiple Award Winner, including Dr. Toy and Oppenheim Gold! One unfortunate fact about gardening is that you don't see a lot of the magic because it's under the ground. It's all fine and dandy to plant seeds and then watch them sprout, but what about the other half of the plant? Sure, you could dig up the plant to see the roots, but then it's just about dead.

Ornithopters are everywhere. But just in case you're thinking we're crazy, we'll list a few places you've seen these amazing flying devices. The 'thropters in Frank Herbert's Dune. The sidequests in Bioware's Jade Empire. The movies of Hayao Miyazaki. The Ornithopter card in Magic: The Gathering. The chimp-powered airplane in Madagascar 2. And our personal favorite, the half-ornithopter, half blimp that serves as the Ranger plane in Chip n'Dale Rescue Rangers. (Which probably tells you how old the monkey writing this description is...) Ready to bring a classic toy home to the digital generation? The Classic Ornithopter is a bright yellow birdie with colorful, tear-proof wings. Simply wind up his rubber band, align his tail, then toss him in the air to watch as he flaps his wings and flies up to 25 meters (about 82 feet) away. What's better than an afternoon where you can play with a flying toy and discuss Leonardo Da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, and the awesome science that is physics?

Not for children under 3 Recommended ages: 4+ with adult supervision Mechanical bird flies up to 25m (about 82 ft)by flapping its wings Classic toy for fans of birds, and or aviation Powered by a rubber band (one spare rubber band included) When you crank your ornithopter up, the rubber band stores up the energy that is used to power the tear-proof wings Directions: Pull the lever up under the right wing Hold bird upside down and crank the handle 50 times Lift the tail up (experiment with different tail angles) Press in switch under the right wing Once the wings begin to flap, lightly toss up and away.

LED Jellyfish Mood Lamp
Blackbeard was just about the most ruthless pirate ever. His management style was unique, to say the least.

According to the infamous pirate's diaries, it really calmed his nerves, too. Wow...
Avenger XBOX 360 Elite Controller

Pivot Power - Articulated Power Strip
Somewhere, in the grand history of electronic stuff, nobody bothered to set a standard for the size and shape of plugs and adapters. Thus, we have big square ones, long rectangular ones, semi-round ones, even oddly geometric ones. And trying to plug them all into one surge protector is like playing Tetris in a game with no long pieces. Pivot Power made us squeal with nerdly glee. With up to six adjustable outlets, we can pivot this surge protector in such a way that we can actually use all the outlets. Every plug fits into every outlet. And if that wasn't cool enough, you can also use Pivot Power's ... powers to wrap around furniture or squeeze a surge protector into hard to reach places. (The long cord helps with that too!) With 672 joules of rock-solid protection, Pivot Power is poised to be our new favorite surge protector - why not give it a shot and see if you agree?

FieldCandy Space Tent
"When we pitched this tent at ThinkGeek HQ, it was an awe-inspiring moment. It is just so darn beautiful. Luckily, while it is full of stars (at least the flysheet is!), entering the tent will not transport you to a faraway star system, unless that's what you usually dream about while sleeping. At the moment, Stephonee (Inventory Monkey & SpaceTweep Extraordinaire) has claimed it as her new office space. We only see her when she has to come in to use the bathroom. Hold on to your SeV hoodie, because we're going to tell you all about this limited-edition beauty: Limited Edition Artwork With the limited edition, digitally printed, designer flysheet (only 195 in the world with the ""Spacious"" design!) and you'll be hard-pressed to find a twin to your tent wherever your camping adventures may take you. Heavy-duty Construction The base tent is a high-performance A-frame storm tent, based on the hardiest expedition tents on the market today. Extreme weather is no problem. Flysheet The flysheet is 100% polyester, flex & tear tested, highly UV fade resistant, and waterproof to a minimum of 3m hydrostatic head. It is treated with Ultra-Fresh to prevent buildup of nasties like fungus and bacteria and coated with teflon for ultimate strength. The flysheet also provides you with a ""front porch"" to your tent, where you can store items that you don't want in your sleeping space. Pin back one or both sides of the front porch area to let more light into your inner tent. Zippers Zippers are from YKK, the world's leading manufacturer of zippers. The flysheet features a YKK zip with large inner and outer toggle protected by a Velcro zip cover. Pegging Points Pegging points are strong elastic and adjustable for security and stability. They're designed to prevent roof dipping and groundsheet rucking and include storm guy lines for extra protection in bad weather. Pegs FieldCandy pegs are hardened aluminum, extra strong and nigh-impossible to bend. A handy little hole is drilled in there for your custom peg puller. Spare pegs and a hammer for knocking pegs into the ground are included. Poles High quality, high strength, lightweight, precision-engineered aluminum alloy poles are quick and easy to set up. With a little wiggle they slot together all by themselves! Inner Tent Modern tents are made of plastic and hold moisture inside, resulting in a miserable muggy atmosphere. FieldCandy's inner tent is 100% natural cotton that breathes, making the air inside much drier and more comfortable. FieldCandy inner tents are sewn with cotton and the flysheets with treated polyester, both through flat felled seams, which are then seam sealed for maximum performance. Sleeping Space Bigger than your average 2-person tent, FieldCandy's inner tent has a light grey interior, a mesh window for ventilation & light, and a place to hang your lantern. You won't DIAF either, because the inner tent is fire retardant to EU and US standard CPAI-84. (But always be sure to keep all fire f..."
"Ghostbusters 12"" Neon Sign"
"Neon signs are the best investment apartment and condo dwellers can make. Let us explain: a friend of ours picked up a neon sign from a local restaurant that went out of business. It said ""CHICKEN"" in giant orange neon letters and it was glorious. His girlfriend was less enthusiastic about the purchase. However, she ate her words the night of their housewarming party. ""Look for the neon CHICKEN sign,"" Adam wrote on the invitations. Sure enough, nobody got lost in the winding mess that was their community. They followed the warm orange glow right to their front door. Now you can do the same with your very own neon Ghostbusters sign! Whether you're using it to show friends the way to your party or to advertise your very own ghostbusting business, it will guide living beings safely to your door. And as an added bonus, ghosts and poltergeists will stay far away because they know that with the sign comes humans with proton packs. This neon Ghostbusters sign measures 15"" x 12"" and features a universal power cord with adapter."
Dreamlights Fireflies in a Jar
"As the days get longer, and the nights get warmer, people are venturing outside their doors and enjoying the moonlight. As they walk down streets and paths, the flickering lights of fireflies are hard to miss. During some summers, trees would light up with more fireflies than there were stars in the heavens, turning the whole sky upside-down. As kids, many of us ran through our parents' back yards, collecting fireflies in jars. They'd flicker inside, blinking out their little buggy code to each other. We would wonder what their bioluminescent blinkenlights were actually saying. Were they discussing the merits of Proust? Perhaps engaging in a rabid defense of French Existentialist poetry in an age of materialism and excess. No - nothing that heady. In fact, their gentle flickering communicates their ability to mate and their location - the entomological equivalent of ""Hey baby! Yo! Over here, good-lookin'! Yo!"" Of course, unless you're an 8-year old boy, or an entomologist, bugs are kinda icky, so handling them may not be your favorite thing to do. Also, there's the cruelty factor of shaking a jar full of bugs giving them tiny buggy concussions in an effort to stimulate their bioluminescence simply for the joy of a child who, in a few short minutes, will lose interest in favor of their Nintendo DS and some new Pokemon title. So where bugs fail us, robots fill in. These robots come in the form of tiny LEDs inside a frosted glass lantern. During the day, the lantern soaks up the energy of the sun, and during the night the little robot bugs glow, flickering and throbbing like real fireflies. You can set them to glow as long as they have power, or only when you shake the lantern. Don't worry about harming the little fellas - they aren't real. Your karma is safe. So traipse across your moonlit garden again, like you did when you were a kid. Set it on your night stand to offer a soft soothing glow while you sleep, or just take a walk using the lantern as cool illumination as you go. The fireflies won't mind - in fact, they'll probably come to check out the hot little robotic numbers inside. Ooh yeah, baby. Features Glass lantern full of flickering LED ""fireflies"" Rechargeable solar batteries keep your lights going for many hours Switchable to glow when it gets dark, or when you shake the jar Soothing light that's cruelty free! 4 inches in diameter, 5 3/4 inches tall"

Xtensor Gamer Hand Exerciser
You've got the greatest gaming rig out there. You've spent a lot of money on it - now it's a monolithic liquid-nitrogen-cooled monstrosity capable of pumping out smoother 3D video than real-life. Your pointing device is sensitive to a billion dpi, and your keyboard has a customized throw-distance tuned exactly to your finger length. After all this effort, you still get pwned by n00bs. What's the problem? Your rig may be awesome, and your brain may be sharp and quick, but if your body doesn't respond to your brain's commands correctly, you may as well be playing with mittens on. You need physical conditioning, Daniel-san, and there'll be no wax-on-wax-off, no sand-o-floor, no paint fence. The Xtensor is the only product on the market to perform with true biomechanical correctness, able to stimulate muscles and tendons in the hands, wrists and elbows that have been virtually off limits to all other devices. Repetitive gripping and squeezing of your game-controller or mouse forces extended isometric contractions of the flexor muscles of the hands and fingers producing an unnatural imbalance over time as the hands operate in a mostly closed position. For this reason, patients with hand, wrist and elbow disorders experience unnecessarily long healing times and high reoccurrence rates. Everybody got that? Flexing with the Xtensor between gaming sessions will make your reaction-times much quicker, and will mean no cramping hands after all-night fragging sessions.

All EdgeHD optics are designed to produce an extremely flat focal plane precise enough to match the strict tolerances of the largest commercial ccd detectors, allowing all stars to be in tight focus to the very edge of the chip. Diffraction Limited Some companies boast that their telescopes give diffraction limited stars in the very center of the field of view. EdgeHD optics not only produce diffraction limited stars on axis, but maintain diffraction limited stars across the entire field of view of many of the most popular astrophotography cameras. Even at the very edge of a full frame camera chip, the EdgeHD 14 delivers diffraction limited stars of only 1 arc second! Along with the newly designed optics, the EdgeHD also has re-designed mechanics guaranteed to help you get the maximum performance from your instrument Features Include: Mirror Locks – To hold the mirror in place and reduce image shift during imaging. Tube Vents - Each vent has an integrated 60 micron micro-mesh filter allowing hot air to be released from behind the primary mirror. Fastar Versatility – All EdgeHD optical tubes are equipped with a removable secondary mirror for fast f/2 ccd imaging. Not only does imaging in the FASTAR configuration allow for exposure times that are 25 times faster than at f/10, but

Unfortunately, you've got bills to pay, so you punch in every morning and punch out every night feeling a little more dead with each passing day...
