We cannot make our sun stand still, so here's hoping this new batch of goodies will inspire you to stop running around town and let us take care of your hollidaze.

If your images were on you'd see Doctor Who Talking Plush - A race of huggable Daleks

These plush are the first in a series of officially licensed Doctor Who plush for the new series. They are all about 9" tall and pleasantly overstuffed, especially the TARDIS (since there's so much on the inside, you know!). Squeeze the TARDIS and you'll hear its signature flight sounds as the light on top flashes. The Daleks (in red and blue) will tell you that you are their enemy and they want to exterminate you. You'll have to hug it out.

If your images were on you'd see New Super Mario Candies - Two types for all your powerup needs

Let's face it: Mario and Luigi aren't in the best shape. And now we know why! It's because they eat a lot of candies. And not just any candies, but these 3Dee Gummy Candies and Snerdles Question Box Candies. The 3Dee candies are three dimensional gummies in the shapes of Mario, Yoshi, and other friends from the Nintendo universe. The Snerdles are candy-decorated fruit strips, with the decorations being (of course) in Super Mario shapes (like coins, mushrooms, etc.), all stored inside reusable Question Boxes. These candies will give you all the power that sugar gives the Mario Brothers. Just be careful punching those bricks!

They will illuminate the heavens and inspire your dreams to become reality. And they're just so dang pretty. Oh, and we've found the safest ones, too.

Grow Your Own Banana Tree - Monkeys not included

If your images were on you'd see Grow Your Own Banana Tree - Monkeys not included

Using logic, we're now going to prove to you why you will buy this kit. If you grow this banana tree, you might produce your own bananas. Monkeys like bananas and monkeys will find bananas. To conclude: if you grow your own bananas, you might attract monkeys. You can then keep these monkeys to do your bidding, provided you feed them enough bananas. Now you know you have to buy at least one of these kits. Besides, it's fun, easy, and guaranteed by the manufacturer to grow! So, it's a no-lose proposition--one where you might even end up with a monkey army!

Bare Paint Conductive Paint - Make electrical circuits with paint!

If your images were on you'd see Bare Paint Conductive Paint - Make electrical circuits with paint!

This paint is amazing. Paint it on a wall (or any surface) in thin lines, and those lines will act just like wires conducting electricity. You can then attach other components to them and let your DIY mind explode all over the place. Words cannot truly express how awesome this stuff is. So, let's imagine together: A villain approaches your desk. You press a hidden button on your desk, sending electricity coursing through the circuits you've painted on your wall and the floor (Bare Paint can be painted over to totally become invisible), causing the trap door to open under the villain. Now you see why you need a bunch of this paint?!? The only limit is your imagination. Now get creating!

Mini Rechargeable USB Turntable - Play that vinyl!

If your images were on you'd see Mini Rechargeable USB Turntable - Play that vinyl!

At first glance this turntable appears to be a mysterious black briefcase. Perhaps it contains the secret documents to the Death Star? Maybe it's got $100,000 in cash in unmarked bills inside? But no, if you pop open the latch you'll find a high quality belt-driven turntable. It even has built-in speakers so you can play your favorite records on the go. Want to transfer your vinyl to mp3s for your iPod? This will do that, too! Here's our awesome holiday idea: gift this and an iPod to your favorite person of the vinyl era and spend a weekend helping them transfer their favorite records to our newfangled device.

Googly Eye Clock - Time is Watching You

If your images were on you'd see Googly Eye Clock - Time is Watching You

Doctor Soran from Star Trek Generations said that Time is a predator, but Jean-Luc Picard suggested it was, instead, a companion. Either way, Time's gone a bit derpy. Instead of two hands marking out the hour and minute, our new clock has two googly eyes that look in the direction of the hour and minute. Eyes rolled skyward? It's lunchtime! Eyes looking sad? It's time to head home! To your friends and confused coworkers, the Googly Eye Clock will look like a goofy electronic sculpture, but to you, it's just another moment in time.
