Nobody loves the holidays more than kids. If you’re like me, you have a Geekling that’s watching halls getting decked, building gingerbread houses, and wondering when Santa is going to show up. Then, on Christmas morning, they are going to go tearing out to the tree at 5AM, wanting to see what Santa brought them! When they tear open that package, they don’t want socks and underwear, or clothing! There is nothing more depressing than to find that really big box you’ve been eyeballing has been holding nothing more than athletic socks and tightey whities. So, what does that wee Geekling need to make their Christmas morning bright? Let’s take a look…
- Mister Potato Head – He used to be known for his bucket of parts, but now he’s specializing. Here are a few of the really cool ones that a Geekling might enjoy.
- Goldie Blox Products – The title will bring you to their Amazon page, with has awesome building kits for girls. I can’t wait until my Geekling is old enough to get stuff like this, so I can build them with her.
- Minecraft Foam Diamond Sword and Pickaxe – My little brother has a pair of Geeklings of his own, and the eldest loves Minecraft. I know he would enjoy these, at least until they were taken away for trying to hack his little brother with them, because that’s what brothers do.
- Once Upon a Zombie Dolls – It’s cool if your Geekling loves playing with dolls, but what if they love both Disney AND Monster High? Check these out.
- Darth Vader and Son and Star Wars: Vader’s Little Princess – For either your little Luke or Leia, these are awesomely adorable takes on parenting.
- Geek Dad: Awesomely Geeky Projects and Activities for Dads and Kids to Share – Sometimes you don’t want to send them off on their own. Sometimes you want to do things with them. This is for those moments.
- Unbored: The Essential Field Guide to Serious Fun – Walking the line between fun and learning, this book helps keep the little ones entertained without a gaming system.
- The SurReal Mother Geek – We picked this book up at Gen Con this year, and the Geekling loves it. It has a Geekish bend to many popular rhymes and children’s songs, and the little one has been found, playing with her Legos, singing “Hush, Little Geekling” on more than one occasion. I give this adorable book a strong, personal recommendation.
