Desktop Jellyfish Tank
Looking for a totally unique pet that will remind you to just keep swimming? How about a jellyfish you can keep on your desktop at work? We discovered this product when it was a top project on Kickstarter and won the Best Product award at the Global Pet Expo. It was just awesome enough for us to want several of our very own. We named them all Squishy, naturally...
IngenuiTEA 16oz Teapot
Caffeine comes in many forms to tickle the taste-buds and please the palate. While some prefer their caffeine to be a simple tasteless pill form, most like to enjoy and savor the flavor. Sodas and coffee are the most popular, but the caffeine delivery system that gets the least amount of attention is tea. Ah, tea - that most ancient and honored brew! A simple infusion of herbs. Sometimes dried, often oxidized, tea is a natural source of caffeine as well as theobromides, anti-oxidants, polyphenols and amino acids. All that chemistry may sound intimidating, but it all translates to yummy goodness. The problem with tea, though, is it can be a little fiddly to make the perfect cuppa. Anybody who knows anything about tea knows that the best is made from loose tea leaves. Get that teabag crap outta here! You know as well as we do that you'd be made fun of if you brought out your nice shiny porcelain teapot. "Ooh!" you can hear your coworkers saying, "Do you have doilies? Is it time for finger sandwiches?" Grr. We've got the coolest way possible to make a perfect cup of tea with no mess. The IngenuiTEA holds up to 16 ounces of brew and tea leaves. After the specified amount of brewing time, just rest the pot over your mug, and the spring-loaded valve empties the tea into your mug, leaving the spent leaves behind. Dump and rinse, and you're done. Easy! So whether yours is a nice toasty genmaicha, or a spicy rooibos, an earthy oolong, or a lovely bergamot Earl-Grey, there's no finer way to get your tea fix!

"Sure it would have been fun to have lived during the golden age of Piracy, a time where the Pirates of the Spanish Main ruled the seas and brought about a delightful amount of plundering, pillaging and looting. Ah, such were the times of leather-faced privateers and buccaneers from the West Indies with their masted frigates and schooners laden with iron cannons and loaded with sea-loving, simple-minded, deck hands. To relive the legends of treasure and mermaids, of island lore, and of war on the seas. How romantic to have been a a pirate, eh? NOT. Let's get something straight. You, yes YOU Mr. reading-this-very-sentence are in every conceivable way incapable of even existing in the same room as a real pirate. You would simply and quickly explode from fear from the inside out, leaving only a slightly tangible mass of flesh, blood, and bones on the planks beneath you. So, go back to ""plundering"" in your online ""guild"" and stop dreaming of ever being a pirate. That would just be too much of an insult to the real deal. Umkay? Just grab this mug, fill it with kool-aid and hurry on to the next ""raid"" before Mom calls you to set the table. Pwned. All scary realities aside, this is a big pirate mug for a big pirate cup of Java. Holds sixteen ounces of your favorite liquid. Sleek looking gloss interior and black matte exterior with the Jolly Roger on one side and ""ARRRRRGGH..."" on the other. Optionally great for moonshined sugarcane rum, grog, and, of course, heavily hopped and heady ales. Pieces of silver not included. The intestinal fortitude of a pirate certainly not included. Note: Because of a shipment being lost at sea, you may receive a mug which has a slightly more tapered bottom than the one pictured and a matte handle. They both hold the same amount of grog (16 oz.). Arrgh."
Electronic Goldfish in a Bowl
"We love goldfish, but alas, we're also lazy and forget to feed the little dudes. And we're ever so tired of all the toilet bowl funerals. That was just a joke to mention toilets, as we would never fail to feed our fishy friends. But what if there was an easier way to enjoy a goldfish without having to worry about food? There is (huzzah!) and it is the Electronic Goldfish in a Bowl. Playing with your new Electronic Goldfish in a Bowl is super easy. Put fresh batteries into the top, push the base decoration into the bowl, fill the bowl with water, and put the top back on. Tap the top and the fishy ""swims"" around - looking quite alive. There's even an LED light show that morphs from one color to another for the perfect relaxing fishy mood. All you have to feed your Electronic Goldfish in a Bowl is batteries, and it will love you as much as a piece of plastic can love a human. Forever! Never again will you have to write ""RIP Cap'n Goldikins"" on your toilet. We salute you, Cap'n. Electronic Goldfish in a Bowl Just like a real fish, it ""swims around."" But unlike a real fish, you never need to feed it! Real glass bowl - just add batteries and water (both not included).

Personal Pie Factory
It is our humble opinion that, despite the wonders of donuts, and the sublime simplicity of cupcakes, one dessert reigns supreme. The pie. Nothing beats a pie's masterful combinations of sweet and salty, and moist and flaky. A delicious firm crust surrounding the filling of your choice is the perfect capper to any special occasion. Aye, but there's the rub, isn't it? We only seem to make pies for special occasions, and that's just wrong. Pies can be hard to do right - you have to channel Betty Freaking Crocker to do it, sometimes. Plus, if you're making pie, you have to make pie for the group. Sure, there are probably a few of us here at ThinkGeek that would love to just sit down with a fork and a whole 9 inch pie, and gorge on it by ourselves, but there lies shame. Sweet, delicious shame. And so, we suffer through the lengthy periods after major holidays where we wait for an excuse to make pie, again. An excuse? We don't need no stinking excuse! We saw a need, and that need was for simple and single-sized pies that can be made at the drop of a hat. The solution came in this perfect little kitchen gadget right here. The Personal Pie Factory simplifies the process. Start with pie dough (nothing wrong with store-bought frozen dough), and your favorite fillings. Almost anything can work! Whole berries, canned cherries, pumpkin pie filling...! Oh, yeah. Close the lid, and in less than 10 minutes, you've got pie. And they're little bitty pies, too! Just enough for one, so now you can eat the whole pie by yourself, and the stigma for doing so can take a hike. Features Cooks up 4 delicious mini pies in under 10 minutes Nonstick surface for easy removal and cleanup You supply the dough and the filling 5.9 x 9.3 x 11 inches
Mini Cupcake Factory
"Cupcakes appeal to the geek because they're entirely made out of cake! Plus, they're teeny and cute, and, for some reason, things that are miniaturized make some of the geek girls here in the office squee with delight! One only has to look at adorable pictures of miniature horses to know the truth of this. So, in the epic battle of cake vs. cupcake, the cupcake has one point for its teenyness, if that's even a word. Another advantage the cupcake has is, due to its size, it has an extremely high crust-to-cake ratio. You know, that outer layer of extra caramelized batter that's soaked up some of the oil and has a slight give to the crumb? Nummy. Also, again - size related, the cupcake cooks in a mere 5 minutes time. So, if you include the time spent mixing and heating the cupcake pan, you're only 10 minutes away from craving to nomming delicious hot cupcakes! ThinkGeek knows you love cupcakes - mostly because we love cupcakes. Consequently, when we found this electric mini cupcake pan, we knocked over little old ladies to get at them. Each one of these little pans heats up in minutes, and cooks 7 cupcakes at a time in 5 short minutes. So you can go from craving to mixing to eating hot delicious cupcakes in less time than it takes to make five 2-minute eggs. Maybe our math is wrong? Apropos of nothing: in the UK, they're called ""fairy cakes."" Unfortunately for our british friends, though, this little guy only has a US 110v plug. Which is fine, really. More for us!"

H2O Instant Water Candle Kit
"Two packs per order for even more candle-ness!! Candles have been used for hundreds of years to spread light where there was dark, not just because no one had invented electricity yet, but because they were so beautiful. And ever since about 10 minutes after the first candle was created, the first candle-lit romantic mood was created. But regular candles are boring. Time to play with some liquid density and cooking ingredients (also romantic) and put an H2O Instant Water Candle Kit or few to good use. Ok, so first you get a jar or vase or something (something glass with a wide mouth). Fill it 3/4 full of water, and mix in some coloring for . . . well, color. Drop in any other crap you want in the jar for to make it more beautiful. Add a centimeter layer of cooking oil on top of that water, and gently float a wick (which you already inserted into a floater) on the water. Then light it. It will burn off the cooking oil (since said oil will be floating on top of the water), and look gorgeous. By using some H2O Instant Water Candle Kits, you will have unique candles that won't drip wax all over the place. Oh, and, if the candle gets knocked over by accident, the water will extinguish the flames. H2O Instant Water Candle Kit - a simple, science-y, exquisite way to add some beauty to your world. Please Note: You'll need to supply your own vase/jar, water decorations (rocks, etc), water, and oil.
