Disclosure: I was sent free products from ThinkGeek.com in exchange for my honest opinion.
Is your Dad or husband a geek? And I mean that in a totally awesome way! Does he love all things Superheros, Gaming, Star Wars, Star Trek, Zombies, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and so on? Perhaps, you don’t consider him a geek, maybe just a fan. Either way, this Father’s Day is the perfect time to check out ThinkGeek.com and forget about the boring and normal Father’s Day gift! ThinkGeek.com has the perfect gift for dad in every price range and they deliver fast! Check out all the doodads, gadgets, and gizmos they have to offer!
When you shop for Dad, you must take into account what they are fans of and their interests. At ThinkGeek.com, you can shop by interest so it makes it very easy to find the perfect gift! They even have a Father’s Day Gift Center to help you find the gift you are looking for.
My Geeky husband is a Star Wars, Lego, Zombies, and Superheros Fan. I narrowed down my selection, with the help of my 7 and 4 year old sons. They were really digging the R2-D2 USB Car Charger and the Build-On Brick Mug. They made me watch the R2-D2 USB Car Charger over and over so I just want to say thanks to ThinkGeek for making such fun product videos!
Our R2-D2 USB Car Charger and the Build-On Brick Mug!
About the R2-D2 USB Car Charger:
Awesomeness! This little charger is sure to delight any Star Wars fan! It bleeps and bloops, rotates his head, his eye lights up, and oh yes he can charge up to 2 tablets simultaneously. This was a real crowd pleasure here in my home. My boys could not wait for me to try it out in my car and I even had a request to go see R2-D2 later in the day by my 4 year old son. He was very upset when Daddy actually took it out of my car and put it into his own. I guess mommy is also getting a gift this Father’s Day.
OK, you know I had have my boys dress in their Star Wars costumes for this review, right?
