ThinkGeek just rolled out a bunch of new products, including the fruits of some home video archaeology that need to be respected. The geek-themed merchandise purveyor (who is not affiliated with us, despite the similar name) dumped out a list of exclusive collectibles you won’t find anywhere else.
First, the Mandela effect has been proven wrong once again with the discovery of a cache of Shazaam VHS tapes. The classic fantasy comedy from the mid-90s was planned to be a Sinbad vehicle but ultimately went straight to video after failing to find distribution in theaters. They’re $24.99 each, VHS-only, you have to find a VCR yourself.
There’s also a Hot Pocket Sleeping Bag. Ever want to camp out in your own crisping sleeve? I know I have. The sleeping bag uses ThinkGeek’s proprietary MicroWaav insulation system and looks like a properly heated Hot Pocket brand sandwich. No word on croissant crust alternative styles, though.
ThinkGeek has taken the treadmill desk to the next level, too. The Swim Desk is the company’s first real attempt at office furniture, and it could be more healthy than a treadmill desk, standing desk, or that dumb ball you sit on. It’s pretty pricey at $1,999.99, but it features adjustable current speed so you can swim at your own pace while working.
Let’s not forget the best character of Stranger Things, especially now that she has her own book! Where’s Barb? is an interactive picture book that lets you search for the unsung star of Netflix’s hottest show to date! Bonus points (in the self-defined challenge sense, because it’s still just a book) if you can find her with the book Upside Down.
If I used a bike, I’d definitely want the Bicycle Horn of Gondor for my bike horn. It mounts on any standard handlebars and makes a loud, clear sound to alert distracted drivers and pedestrians. Gondor calls for traffic safety!
These are just some of the interesting ThinkGeek products just announced for today, which is April 1. Which is, traditionally, a day for humorous lies.
I still want that Hot Pockets sleeping bag, though.
