In other badass apron news, we have this amazing thing. Whether you’re cooking for an army, the apocalypse, or just want to be prepared for your barbecue, you’ll be set. Add some cooking utensils to the apron for a great all-in-one gift!
Tactical BBQ Apron, $34.99 at ThinkGeek.com.
ThinkGeek has a special coupon up right now for $20 off orders of $60+ with code “SPACESTATION.” However, the code ends at the end of the day TODAY. Hurry!
While you’re there, check out my new fave shirt of theirs: The “Hello Sweetie” Tee.
GMing a campaign and the players have decided to deviate off the set path? Need some fresh ideas on how to layout a dungeon? Want to play an impromptu campaign out and about and don’t have your notes with you? Grab these dice!
The dungeon-building dice set allows you to roll to put together a dungeon map. The five dice included in the set are all different, but all connect with each other through two separate pathways. I’m down for any excuse to roll more dice!
You can find them for $19.99 at ThinkGeek.com.
You’ve most likely heard of the drama surrounding the Jayne hats… Fox sent out a Cease and Desist to Etsy sellers and others without a license. ThinkGeek does have a license for the hat, and was getting some flack for carrying something mass produced that others aren’t allowed to hand-make anymore. So, being the awesome company they are, they decided to give all proceeds from the sales of the hats to Can’t Stop the Serenity, a charity organization run by Browncoats. If you missed out on getting a Jayne hat, you can grab them now AND feel good about the decision. They’ll continue doing this until they run out of the hats. Find them at ThinkGeek.com.
Prefer hand-made? You’re still able to make the hats, and I’m guessing you’ll still be able to find hand-made hats for sale, just not with the words “Jayne” or “Firefly” associated with it.
Every year, ThinkGeek creates a list of some new “April Fool’s Day” products on what Mr. Geek and I lovingly refer to as “the pre-order page.” You see, they have a tradition of picking one or two products after April 1st and turning them into actual products. You can pick the ones that you like best and get notified by email if/when they become real by clicking “Buy Now” and then scrolling down the page a bit. You can see all of the new products on the homepage, but my top three are below:
This Death Star Trench Toss is just a gussied up cornhole set, but it looks ridiculously cool. Perfect for barbecues and tailgating those new Star Wars movies! The price is a little steep though. At $124.99, it better be huge.
This can very easily be made into a real product, and I’m positive they’ll announce it soon.
Bane Mask Walkie Talkies? Why not? You won’t be able to understand each other, but they’ll still provide hours of fun. Not too sure if this would be practical as a real product, but the image of the little boy using the walkies on the product page is good enough for me.
3D printers are all the rage, so it would make sense that Play-Doh would get in on it. I just don’t think technology’s quite advanced enough yet, as much as I’d like. Since this product would need to be created by Play-Doh, not by ThinkGeek, I doubt this one will see the light of day. But it never hurts to wish!
What were some of your fave April Fool’s announcements/pranks today?
ThinkGeek is having a “Hoth Winter Sale” featuring many of their warmest, coziest items. In addition to things I’d highly recommend like a heated blanket and an electric kettle, they’ve got a great selection of mugs starting at $3.49 each. Replace your old, cracked mugs with something a bit cooler or grab something a bit more eye-catching to keep on your desk. I’m loving the four featured above!
Visit the entire winter sale at ThinkGeek.com!

Show your love of the Doctor with these bright and cozy socks. I’m personally a fan of the TARDIS design myself–it would go perfectly with my TARDIS dress from BlackMilk! Here’s hoping they make a Silence design next. When people look away from you, they’ll think you’re wearing nothing at all.

If you were to believe the ads that are everywhere around this time of year, you’d think every woman wanted a European-style charm bracelet with the following “unique” and “personal” items on it: flip flops, a crystal birthstone, a ladybug, the Eiffel Tower, and a purse. I’ve never in my life wanted a flip-flop or a purse on a bracelet. Although the idea behind these bracelets is cool (create a custom bracelet and get a new bead for each holiday/big occasion in your life) I just haven’t found beads that represent me.
As usual, ThinkGeek has come to the rescue. They’ve released their own charm bracelet that includes things like Timmy, a companion cube, a computer, and a “bling mushroom.” I wouldn’t be surprised to see them releasing new beads further down the road as well.
The bracelet itself is $39.99 and the beads range from $12.99-29.99 at ThinkGeek.com. It’ll make a fantastic gift for all of the geeky ladies in your life!
While at SDCC, I ran into a guy wearing the coolest 8-bit sunglasses. He bought them on Ebay, because the only ones available new were extremely expensive. ThinkGeek must have overheard us chatting, because now they have awesome and affordable 8-bit sunglasses for us all!
At only $7.99 a pair, I can see some fantastic group photo shoots coming from these. Available at ThinkGeek.com.
