Your baby's face: The final frontier
ThinkGeek lets you start your kid off nerdy with this Trek-themed bib and spoon set.
Any parent can use the old "here comes the airplane into the hangar" ruse to get a kid to eat, but why not go one better with "here comes the Enterprise into a wormhole"?
I don't have any kids this young anymore, but ThinkGeek is really making my ovaries tingle with the Star Trek Enterprise Light-Up Feeding System. The bib has motion-activated LEDs on what looks to be a scene from "The Trouble With Tribbles." It doesn't specifically say so, but that looks like Space Station K-7 to me. The spoon is a replica of the old-school Enterprise ("NCC 1701. No bloody A, B, C, or D.") complete with flashing LEDs on the warp nacelles.
The $24.99 bib and spoon set is aimed for ages 12 months and older (insert your own hacky "still living with parents" joke here), and comes with three dishwasher-safe spoon attachments. You supply your own dramatic music.
With all the Trek merchandise out there, it's only a matter of time before they start targeting the extreme opposite demographic with the Star Trek suppository delivery system.
Have the Enterprise send a probe to... you know what, I'll just stop there.
