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"
Lil' Vampire Pacifier
When our copywriter monkey's brother was a baby, he had a biting problem. He just loved sinking his brand new teeth into anything and anyone available and he especially loved the tender flesh of the human neck. And so, geekling Brian went through life chomping on anyone who dared cuddle him. He would probably have escalated to vampirism if not for one angel of a woman at the grocery store. Mid-dairy-aisle, Brian sunk his razor sharp baby teeth into his mother's neck, causing her to cry out. The woman moved in with advice. "Bite him back," she said. Brian's mom looked skeptical. "Seriously," the woman said. "He won't learn unless you bite him back." Mom sunk her teeth into Brian's tender baby neck. He cried, he screamed, and he never bit anyone ever again. Do you have a noisy baby or one you feel may grow up to drink the blood of mortals? This pacifier is the way to go. It features luscious red lips and a full set of teeth including sharp canines for sucking the blood of the living. Our lawyers say we must tell you that ThinkGeek is not responsible if your geekling grows up to be one of the undead (but we are grateful because that means they can be one of our customers for centuries!).
The Ex - Unique Knife Set and Holder
We'll get right to the point with this product - it's a wicked cool design for a knife holder and certainly a lot more edgy than the standard old block of wood. We're not sure who the designer might have been thinking of when he created this but we definitely like the results. And it includes five knives!. This unique artistic knife holder is made of heavy duty ABS plastic and will be the talk of the party! It's an innovative knife suspension system with individual protective knife sleeves for each blade. The five knives are made from heavy gauge durable stainless steel. The slots are magnetized to secure knives in the holder. Overall, we'd say The Ex Knife Set is very cutting edge!
Into Focus Camera Lens Coffee Mug
"A photographer needs to stay alert. That perfect shot lies between moments - 1/250th of a second, your subject is framed perfectly, shadows falling just so, everything is in perfect focus. The next 1/250th of a second, it's a disaster. Motion, blinking, an errant flash somewhere off camera... to be a good photographer, you've got to stay sharp, and quite literally in focus. That's why photographers, like every other subgenus of geek, love their caffeine. It keeps that trigger finger itchy, and ready to let the light in. At it folds through mirrors and lenses and falls onto the medium, whether it's chemically photosensitive film, charged couple device, or metal-oxide-semiconductors, the photographer lends his own personality to the image captured. And it's that photographers personality at play with this new coffee mug. Sure you've seen coffee mugs shaped like camera lenses before, but where those failed, this picks up. First, it's made of ceramic, not plastic. Filling it with hot java won't burn your sensitive fingers. Second, there's a handle. You're not likely to accidentally pour a freshly brewed pot of Ethiopian Sidamo into your prized 24mm to 105mm f2.5 zoom lens if you're expecting a handle through which you loop your index finger. Finally, it's sturdy and can face the rigors of an active photographer's lifestyle. Features Ceramic coffee lens mug Heat resistant. Keeps from scalding your fingers 310 ml capacity (approximate 10 ounces) Perfect for the combination photographer / coffee fiend Comes with rubber ""lens cap"" Dishwasher Safe"
Doctor Who Time Lord Psychic Container

The psychic container is where it's at: every bit of your message conveyed in exactly the way you meant it to be heard and felt by the recipient.

Tap the top to turn on the white glow. Tap again for white flickering mode (the most psychic-looking of the effects, in our opinion!), and tap yet again to go into color mode which cycles through a rainbow of colors.
