I am now deeply, deeply in love with the "Deep Tea Diver." [gigglesnort] And the handle looks like an oxygen tank!! Of course, I'd have to get a clear mug to go with him, so I could watch him bobbing along. Not to mention start drinking tea... [plotting]
You can buy him for $14.95 now at Amazon, or Perpetual Kid has one with orange accents (!!) coming in October for only $9.95.
Think you've seen every geeky nursery theme imaginable? Think again. And get LOST:
The numbered bunny, the polar bear, and the vines are my favorites - but there's also an airplane mobile over the crib made up of all Oceanic planes, a custom baby station sign, and lots, LOTS more. (!!) Check out all of the mind-blowing details posted by the mom here! (via NerdApproved)
I had a total squee attack when I spotted this mind-blowing, handmade, poseable (!!) plush Raz from Psychonauts over on SuperPunch yesterday:
Anna made this as a gift for game creator Tim Schafer. (Lucky man!) It blows my mind that she started with nothing more than a sketch and some wire. There are lots of process pics over on her blog - go see! If you're like me, you'll be adding "make a poseable plush" to your craft bucket list.
(What? You don't know Psychonauts?? Seriously, you guys should play this game! I have it on Xbox, but it's also available on the PC.)
Mashable featured a new phone today that makes me seriously consider re-installing a land line at our house:
I only found these on ebay here in the US, but you UK folk can get one on Amazon for about 68 pounds. (I tried to make the pound sign - I really did. But I failed.)
And finally, Donald of KodyKoala did something I never thought possible: he gave a Hungry Hungry Hippos game a Mario "Koopa Kids" makeover. AND IT IS SO COOL:
(You're welcome, Donald - and let me know if you do a StayPuft version, k?)
Seen something cool and geeky this week? Then link me up in the comments, or over on Facebook!
