ThinkGeek - Holiday Gift Guide Review and Giveaway


Whether you consider yourself a geek or a collector of all things cool, ThinkGeek has an abundance of amazing gadgets, toys, t-shirts, and electronics. Looking through their site, I found something that would make a great fit for everyone on my Christmas list.
It was rather hard finding something to review. Not because there wasn't anything I liked, but because I liked most everything. I narrowed the selection down to two. The first was the LED Jellyfish Mood Lamp. It is quite mesmerizing to watch the sea of jellyfish move around to changing colors. There are different LED colors, which you can cycle through to change or you can stop it at just one color. Of course, real jellyfish don't make good pets. But this group of fake jellyfish are neat to watch move around. It's especially neat to watch in a dark room because it gives off a glow of color. So far we haven't had any problems with the jellyfish moving around, but a little liquid dish soap is all that's needed to get them going again.



The second thing I chose was the Kids Electronic Drum Kit Shirt. It's a good thing my boys are both the same clothing size because they would've fought over this one. Logan and Adam take turns wearing this shirt, beating the drums to make their own music. What makes this shirt special is that the drum decal on the front also plays like real drums.



My boys are no musicians, but have a good time making their own beat to the sound of the drums. The included battery pack with built-in speaker that's hidden within an inside pocket controls the volume and lets the sound through. There are seven diferent drum sounds, so you get a different beat depending on where you tap the shirt. The sound quality is clear. Full volume isn't my preference of choice, but it's definitely the boys' preference.

To clean the shirt, the drum decal comes off the front and the battery pack unplugs. Once the shirt is clean and dried, the decal gets pressed back into place and the battery pack connects back to the ribbon cable.

This is what the battery pack looks like for the shirt.

Four AAA batteries are required to operate the battery pack. They are not included, so you will need to purchase them separately.

ThinkGeek has a Geek Points program that rewards you for shopping with them. The more you shop, the more points you earn. By earning points from each purchase, you can redeem those points later for free products.
