The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

This commercial pissed me off when I was still in school. Now? It's the truth.

The kids are going back to school! This means shopping for backpacks, lunchboxes, notebooks, all that good stuff.

I spied these notebooks and folders at Toys R Us and had to buy them. For me. (The eldest child went for something more sparkly). I mean, how could I NOT buy them. It's pretty much like looking in the mirror, except I haven't worn pigtails in years. There were also Ninja ones. Yes, I bought those too.

Lightsabers and unicorns! Why didn't they have this when I was a kid?

Thinkgeek has a Back to School Gift Bag with some cool stuff, although my favorite has to be the Decomposition Notebook. OK - it doesn't have anything to do with zombies except that's where my head goes when I hear "decomposition." Close enough.

Thinkgeek also has the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Backpack (with masks!)

I found some Superhero Eraser Toppers from SuperHeroStuff guaranteed to make your Ticonderoga's more awesome.

Doesn't Thor look so happy to be sitting on your #2? (Admit it, your inner 12 year old just started giggling maniacally)

And of course, you need something to carry those awesome pencils in, like this Yoda pencil box also from SuperHeroStuff.

What will your geekling be sporting this year?
Pin It


  1. Love the Yoda pencil box. I have a Pirates of the Carribean pencil box that I use for all my flash drives. It makes me feel cool.

  2. ZOMG. The notebook and folder are ADORABLE. I looked just like that when I was a little girl, down to the big glasses. I wish I had a Toys R Us near me, I'd buy the shit out of those!

  3. This is awesome. One of the best things about being an adult is that geek is the new cool.

  4. My inner 12 year old DID just start laughing manically at sitting on a number two!

  5. Love those notebooks! She looks like me now, nevermind when I was in school. And is it just me or is that a Gryffindor scarf along with the unicorn and light saber?!
