Top 10 Gifts for Dad's Inner Child

At some point in your childhood you figure this out: half the toys your dad buys you are so that he can play with them, too. That's just fine with us, as long as he doesn't mess with our mint-in-box collectibles. And even though he still loves to play, he rarely gets this sort of treat explicitly for himself these days. It's time you gave him permission to be a kid again by getting him something fun this Father's Day.

Game Over Man: The Alien Queen Bust Bank

When all looks dire, there's fire and destruction everywhere, and Dad's ready to yell out "Game over man! GAME OVER!" just hand him this Game Over Man: The Alien Queen Bust Bank and he'll remember that he's the hero, strap on his Alien stompers, and get back to it. One nasty Xenomorph, this bank is ready to be his swear jar, beer and pizza fund, or the perfect spot to put away some cash for whatever he might be saving up for.

Star Wars 3D Holodisplay

We're going to be blunt with you on this one. It's REALLY hard to show how cool the 3D hologram effect is in a two-dimensional computer image. But this Star Wars 3D Holodisplay is an incredible piece that really does seem to project a dimensional image. Dad is going to clear everything off his desk just to make space for his new perspective on the classic trench run - and maybe even a little trash-talking at Kylo, that ungrateful little brat.

Discovery RC Quadcopter with HD Camera

Everyone's going crazy about "drones" and "hoverboards" but let's get the nomenclature right this Father's Day. This Discovery RC Quadcopter with HD Camera is ready to fly out of the box (though the included LiPo battery may need a little extra juice). With an included 720p camera that can use micro-SD cards to record Dad's latest excursions into the wild blue yonder, this quadcopter will have him registering with the FAA in no time to get this bad boy up in the air.

Solarbotics Perpetual Motion Marble Kit

Solarbotics Perpetual Motion Marble Kit

Here's a toy that's guaranteed to reignite Dad's love of science. The Solarbotics Perpetual Motion Marble Kit harnesses solar power to run a marble through a small course reminiscent of the gumball machines we always made Dad stop before we left the Blockbuster video store. With about 30 minutes to an hour of assembly and 17.5 million years' worth of sun, the fun-value of this gizmo is most likely the best deal in our solar system.

Marvel: Deadpool 8" Retro Set

Dad remembers when the coolest thing you could get at the toy store was the action figure set complete with miniature weapons that wouldn't always stick in the action figures' hands. Get him a bit of modern day nostalgia with the Marvel: Deadpool 8" Retro Set and judge his ability to delay gratification by whether he leaves it in the box or immediately tears off the packaging to create an epic battle in the middle of the dining room table. (There is no wrong answer here.)

The Force Trainer II: Hologram Experience

You've always known Dad was Force-sensitive; he somehow knows when you're about to do something dumb. So show Dad he's the chosen one with the Force Trainer II: Hologram Experience this Father's Day. The Bluetooth-connected EEG brainwave sensor headset will train his Force powers with Yoda's voice ready to provide guidance. You can remind him: "Try not. Do. Or do not. There is no try."

ThinkGeek Annoy-a-tron Prankster Pack

Dads love to bug people with minor annoyances. Telling incessant puns, "fixing" broken appliances, flipping the channel on the remote just as it gets to the good bit - you name it, and he's done it. Upgrade his prank game with the ThinkGeek Annoy-a-tron Prankster Pack so he can really mess with the minds of his friends and enemies alike. The best part is that since you're the one who got these noisemakers for him, you'll be wise to Dad's next series of pranks.

3Doodler 3D Printing Pen 2.0

Maybe Dad's got shaky hands like Timmy after his fourth cup of coffee. Maybe Dad's got the steady hands of a da Vinci Surgical System. Whatever his skill level, the 3Doodler 3D Printing Pen 2.0 is designed to accommodate him and bring his ideas to life in three-dimensional plastic models. With everything needed to start his new doodling lifestyle (50 strands of printing plastic, mini screwdriver and spanner, and a specially designed unblocking tool to fix any clogged nozzles), this upgraded pack from the original 3Doodler is more fun than a barrel of monkeys, which, coincidentally, is one of the many things you can make with it.

Halo Limited Edition Needler Replica

Prepare Master Chief Dad for his next orbital drop with everyone's favorite Covenant weapon, the Needler. The Halo Limited Edition Needler Replica is one beastly toy with sounds from the game, needles that light up and retract, and a gigantic true-to-scale 1:1 construction. This is the kind of toy that Dad's going to run around the backyard firing at alien invaders, and he won't be ready to finish the fight until the batteries run out. So you may want to get him a pack of C batteries as well. Or you might want to hide them from him. Your call.

Star Trek Retro Original Series Playset

Dad had one of these back in '77 but somewhere along the way, between moves and his parents thinking he didn't play with "dolls" anymore, his original playset disappeared. Let him feel like a kid again with the Star Trek Retro Original Series Playset which is an exact recreation of the 1970s Mego classic. Our top pick for Dad's inner child for Father's Day 2016, this is an office favorite here at ThinkGeek, especially for its old-school spin-action transporter.
