Wonderful USS Enterprise Sushi Set Includes Warp Trail Chopsticks

If you’re in the business of designing and selling novelty chopstick sets, you might as well pack up and close down shop now, because no one will ever be able to top this USS Enterprise set that ThinkGeek has created. The BPA-free plastic chopsticks look like glowing blue warp trails coming out of its engines, and the ship’s saucer section opens up to reveal a soy sauce dish.


ThinkGeek's Made Its Flying USS Enterprise Frisbee Prank A Real Toy

ThinkGeek’s annual crop of April Fools’ Day prank products are not only great because the company puts so much time and effort into making them see as real as possible, but also because they often end up as products you can actually buy. The latest to go from prank to purchasable is that USS Enterprise flying disc from last April that actually flies.


Giant 3D Tetris Cushions Are The Perfect Fort-Building Tool

If you stop and think about it, Tetris is less a puzzle game, and more a simulator that has players building virtual forts using randomly-shaped couch cushions. Except that in real life they don’t disappear when you’ve completed a layer, nor do these giant Tetris cushions that finally fulfil the game’s true living room couch fort destiny.


Wipe Your Feet On This SNES Controller Doormat

It’s arguably one of the most comfortable game controllers ever designed, and while this 16-Bit Game Controller Doormat isn’t officially licensed by Nintendo, there’s no denying it’s a wonderful homage to the SNES.


You Can Hide This Glove Foam Dart Launcher In Plain Sight

Walk into a room carrying a toy blaster and everyone assumes you’re going to start spraying foam darts in their direction, giving them time to duck. But walk into a room wearing what looks like just a fingerless glove and everyone will assume you’re some kind of rebel, and they certainly won’t suspect a barrage of six darts is secretly waiting for them.


Golden Ferrofluid Fulfils Your Midas And Magneto Fantasies

And here we thought that colour-changing ferrofluid was as unique as that magical magnetic liquid could get. But our eyes have been opened to a whole new world of possibilities now that ThinkGeek is stocking a bottle of ferrofluid that looks like it’s filled with liquid gold, ready to morph, spike, and dance at your command.


Blank Action Figures Let You Customise Your Own Superheroes

Unimpressed with the current crop of action figures on the shelves of your local toy store? Convinced you’ve come up with a better superheroine or hero? With some paint, magic markers, and maybe even a little modelling clay, you can now create your own action figure without having to pay for a 100,000-unit production run up front.


This Ball Machine Fakes Perpetual Motion As Long As The Sun Is Shining

Why is watching a marble snake its way around a twisty maze so mesmerising? Maybe it’s an allegory on the human condition as we all try to make our way through the world? What’s for certain is that they make for great desk toys, and as long as your office gets a bit of sun during the day, this one could — at least in theory — keep running until our local star eventually burns out.


A Newton's Cradle Stuck To Your Fridge Easily Bests Magnetic Poetry

It’s weird that the one room in your house where you’re constantly killing time waiting for the microwave to finish, or the stove to heat up, has the least number of distractions to keep you entertained. And a fridge covered in magnetic poetry (yawn) isn’t the answer, but a magnetic Newton’s Cradle hanging from the door certainly is.


Han Solo Frozen In Carbonite Shower Curtain: Don't Worry, He Can't See

For those who love Star Wars so much they’re willing to get really, really intimate with their collectibles, here’s a Han Solo shower curtain depicting the hero frozen in carbonite so you can be completely naked next to your favourite character while you shower, and he won’t see a thing.
