Nerdy Baby ABC Flash Cards

Nerdy Baby ABC Flash Cards

Etsy seller electricboogaloo (anyone get the reference?) offers these beautifully illustrated yet completely geeky Nerdy Baby ABC Flash Cards.

Here’s what electricboogaloo has to say:

“Ah, nerds having nerds. So tragic. Here is an awesomely pretentious gift for nerdy parents with nerd babies. A is for Atom, B is for Binary Code, C is for Cellular Membrane… and it’s all downhill from there. Shock and horrify your friends whose babies only know lame stuff like animal names!”

The cards are 5″ x 7″ and you get a full set of twenty-six for $18.00 plus shipping.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Amigurumi

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Amigurumi
Craftster user Falwyn crocheted these super cute Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dolls for her kids, based on Atsuko’s pattern. Falwyn made the shells differently than Atsuko, and provided those directions in her post. Personally, I would have made the shells bigger, but all in all, this would make a great little gift for geeks large and small.

HOWTO: Tetris Magnets

My inspiration for making these were the “Tetrius Puzzle Game Magnets” from ThinkGeek. I had a TG gift certificate I had to spend and came across them. I thought they would be cool to put on the fridge or on my metal cabinet at work. As luck would have it, they were out of stock at the time and I started thinking… it should be easy to make something like that at home for much less than $10 for a set. So, what follows is how to make your own.
