Favorite ThinkGeek videos

Updated on May 21, 2011

I discovered the ThinkGeek website by accident and thought I'd share some of my favorite ThinkGeek Videos. I have no affiliation with ThinkGeek just loved their geeky products. There seems to be an endless supply of surprises here and ThinkGeek gimics include nonsense remote controls for controlling dogs (buttons like "stop that" "fetch" "attack" and "stay"). On the more practical side of things there is a genuine paedatric baby sleep trainer which can help you train a baby over 4 months to sleep. Wacky office products include a bulletproof clipboard where you can write your day's to do list and include "not to be shot"(see video). And if you've never visited the ThinkGeek Youtube video channel these are for you...

At the Top of the list (though many could take the title) I put this video on the shirt plate. What an awesome product. ThinkGeek have managed here to deliver a product that enhances sedentary lifestyles, lessens co-ordination and helps 'improve' diet conscious geeky lives...but don't take my word for it.

Staying with the food theme, in this next video, Cyle shows off the ThinkGeek  I repel Chef's jacket and his amazing cooking skills.

As children we always love hearing the sound of an icecream van on a hot day. Oh what a relief - but ThinkGeek popsicles aren't quite what you expect as you will see in this next video.

Following on...this next video shows one way to deal with Darth Vader using another great product from ThinkGeek.

Continuing with the theme of empowerment...here is the video on wacky office equipment as promised...

Lastly, the Mashoonga Foam Saber video (but heh you don't have to stop here! There are so many more you can check out on YouTube)...If only more retailers could be like this!

      Can grandmothers like me become geeks in their old age? Thanks for this, I have a son-in-law who's a geek so maybe I'll use the site for his birthday gift!

      Glad you asked. We should send them all shirt plates already loaded with the stuff you generally pick up in a pooper scooper. It's called killing 2 birds with one plate.

      Those ThinkGeeks are on to something. Not sure what it is but I think we should send them to Washington, D.C. to do a number on some knuckleheads there. Thanks for the heads-up, pd. I was woefully lacking in ThinkGeek knowledge before your educational hub and videos.
