Snow monkeys (and lucky tropical-dwelling monkeys),

Have you noticed the nerd rage about Avatar? Aliens-loving monkeys are totally stoked about it, but there are monkeys who say it's FernGully 3D or a long, expensive ad for a video game. We have one monkey who claims he's gonna stand up mid-movie and scream "I'm the king of the world!" before getting dragged out by theater security. But maybe you're not worried about that cuz your shopping isn't done? Save your holiday, we can!

Shipping to the continental US? There's ONE DAY left! Choose Next Day shipping by 12/23, 12pm EST to ensure Christmas delivery.

Caffeinated Geeks Candy - A ThinkGeek Labs creation

Everything evolves over time. You see, when dorks evolve, they become nerds. And when nerds evolve, they become geeks. So when we turned our Evolution Ray on our favorite little candies that come in 2 flavors per package, a marvelous thing happened: they were transformed into Geeks! This is the candy of our people. Larger, crunchier, tastier, and loaded with 100mg of caffeine per package. You get two flavors (lemonade and strawberry) that, like Voltron, can be combined into a more massive flavor. Yeah, this candy is so awesome, it fights Robeasts. $4.99

Transformers USB Accessories - Will store data for energon

If your images were on you'd see Transformers USB Accessories - Will store data for energon

You know the drill: more than meets the eye, yadda yadda. Ever since the Big Movie™ from this past summer, the little robots from Transformers have fallen onto hard times. Now they'll do nearly any job in exchange for a sip of energon. Luckily, the Constructicons got it made. Plenty of work for them. The little guys, not so much. We've got a few Transformers here that'll pitch in to store your data, or move the cursor around your screen a bit. It's not really glamorous, but beggars can't be choosers, right? Poor little guys! $42.99 - $59.99

BaconPop - Bacon flavored popcorn

BaconPop is made by the folks who brought you Bacon Salt, Baconnaise, and Bacon Lip Balm, so you know it's baconriffic. Just beware of bacon-weather friends: the folks who love you for your bacon. It will happen. $4.99

High-powered Green Laser - Instant respect

Not That Kind of Doctor is for our highly-educated men and women who have to explain that, no, they cannot perform a tracheotomy. Finally, we give have a single word for lovers of Muppets, Call of Duty, and free speech. meep. $15.99 - $18.99

Ritmo PreNatal MP3 Player - Musical taste, straight outta the womb

Ritmo is the most advanced and complete system delivering quality and safe sound to prenatal listeners and their moms. Anything you can play in your mp3 player can be played for your pre-geekling, enabling Mom and baby to share the sensory and emotional experience. Researchers have found that reactive listening begins at 16 weeks, when your wee geek-to-be is roughly the size of a tasty avocado. Mmmmm, avocado. Moreover, scientists have found that babies exposed to music in-utero displayed advanced intelligence, coordination, and learning abilities. More concerned with the now? They've also found that listening to soothing music calms the savage ninja fetus, preventing the alien baby from bursting out of you all cinematic-like. $99.99

If your images were on you'd see Star Wars Japanese Mini Busts - Tiny marbleized effigies

Ever wondered what would happen if you took your favorite Star Wars characters, sculpted them as white marble Beethoven-style busts, then shrank them down into detailed capsule toys? Neither have we, but apparently someone at Bandai Japan wondered, and the result is what you see here. Collect all five models including Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, Han Solo, and Darth Vader. If you get really lucky you might even receive the secret figure. $7.99

Looftlighter - It's like a blowtorch and a hairdryer had kids

If you're trying to set a fire, you need kindling and fuel in various stages of combustibility: paper, twigs, sticks, planks, logs... all stacked in increasing degrees of flaminess. Truth is, you don't need any of this! You just need heat and oxygen, and the Looftlighter brings both! Turn it on, and 1,256° F air comes blasting out at a brazillion miles an hour. After about 15 seconds, you should see sparks. Pull back a little and in no time you've got a roaring fire! Now all you need is chocolate, marshmallows, graham crackers and a cup of hot Jones. Ssssip. That's good Jones... $79.99
