5 must-haves for geek babies

I'm a geek and I'm not afraid to admit it. I've seen all 6 Star Wars movies, I get excited about video games and if there's a cool gadget on the market, I want it. That's why these really cool ThinkGeek baby essentials caught my attention.

1. HTML for Babies Book

I love to code and why shouldn't my baby learn the basics? As the description on the website says, “It's never too early to be standards compliant”. This was written by a web designer for his baby and I think it's adorable.

2. Star Trek Uniform Creepers

For some Star Trek is a religion, a way of life – for me, it's the most awesome movie I own on Blu-Ray. I'd definitely kit my little space traveler in a Star Trek uniform. You can even choose between  Academy Cadet, Command, Science and Engineering. Before you know it, your baby will be greeting you with 'live long and prosper'.

3. Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock Bib

If you ever watched The Big Bang Theory or you've heard of Sheldon Cooper then this retake of Rock Paper Scissors should ring a bell. ThinkGeek even has a description of who beats who on the site... For the n00bs.

4. PBA - Personal Baby Assistant

This gadget is perfect for a new parent that's running on the bare minimum of sleep but still wants to be on their A game. The BPA tracks nursing, bottles, pumping, diapers, sleep, medicine, temperature, and growth. With one touch of button you upload it all to your PC. Awesome.

5. My Little Geek ABC Book

This is one of our favourites. What could be better than reading the ABCs of geekdom to your kiddie as a bedtime story? ThinkGeek describes it best: "From Android to Zombie, an ABC for geeky kids."

If you could choose only one, which geeky baby product would you buy?
