Count on fun with refrigerator door LED Digit Magnets

The ThinkGeek LED Digit Magnets are modeled after tech from a bygone era. But that doesn't mean they don't have a place for the next generation.

The fun set of refrigerator magnets can be used in a million different ways. (But who's counting?)

Refrigerators have always been the hub of the kitchen. Considering that is where all the food lives, it only makes sense. However, there is another aspect of the big appliance that draws constant attention, and that would be the refrigerator door. Sure, the door is where all the fun easy-access items such as condiments reside, but there is another side to the story: the outside.

As a wide-open plain, the outside of the refrigerator door is a perfect area for personalization. Long the center for communication, refrigerators have more recently upped the ante by including Wi-Fi-enabled touch screens (such as in the new Samsung line ). However, sometimes all that is needed is a low-tech solution.

Reminiscent of old-timey calculator or clock displays, the ThinkGeek LED Digit Magnets are a refrigerator door's best friend no matter when it was made. The fun fridge magnets come in a set of 566 pieces, allowing for plenty of custom combinations of letters and numbers that can spell out messages of any kind. And don't forget, they are magnetic; they might not hold a tablet in place, but they would make a mighty nice neon green frame for the kids' artwork.
