From the parents I have talked to, it seems like Minecraft is pretty popular with kids these days.  I haven’t played it myself and I have no kids so I am a little out of touch but if what people tell me is true, I have a feeling there are a lot of kids out there that would love to have this cool Minecraft Creeper backpack for when they head back to school here very soon.

The awesome people over at ThinkGeek are selling this Minecraft Creeper backpack for $39.99!  You can find all of the dimensions and stuff over at that link but judging by the pictures, it looks like it has plenty of room to hold your kids books, pens and pencils, cellphone, trapper keeper (those are still a thing right?) and much more.  The only downside is that there is a limit of 3 per customer so if you have more than three kids that all love Minecraft, you might have to get creative if they all want one of these backpacks.

Jurassic Park is one of my all time favorite movies and I’ve seen it well over a hundred times I’m sure since I always watch it whenever I see it on tv.  However, as much as I love that movie, I can’t say the same thing about Jurassic World.  I finally got around to seeing Jurassic World when I was sick recently and especially compared to the original, I think it is utter crap.  Between horrible writing, bad dialog, less than stellar casting and CGI that doesn’t even come close to looking as good as the original, it was overall a huge disappointment.  Heck, it even made Jurassic Park III look good!  However, what isn’t a disappointment is this incredible Jurassic World velociraptor cake!

This incredible Jurassic World raptor cake was created by Louise of Louise Jackson Cake Design for her son’s 8th birthday.  The cake itself is really cool with the logo and scratches on the side but the real star of this cake is the beautiful velociraptor on top!  The detail she managed to achieve on the raptor which is made out of modeling chocolate is absolutely amazing!  She did a great job with the rocks and plants too but that raptor is just beautiful!  She is one talented cake designer!

I have quite a few old Game Boys laying around but as far as I know, they are all still in working condition.  However, apparently one Game Boy fan had one laying around that I am guessing wasn’t functional anymore so they decided to turn it into a really cool clock!

I’m not entirely sure of who did this awesome little Game Boy clock mod that features a Super Mario game (Super Mario Land I think?) with Mario on the hour hand but it appears to have come from twitter user @moja_sen.  Not speaking the language the tweet was written in, I’m not exactly sure what it says to have an idea if they were the creator or not.  Whoever made it, it is definitely a cool way to give a little more life to an old Game Boy!

Mainly because of bugs, the whole outdoor bonfire type thing has never really appealed much to me no matter how much I love roasting marshmallows.  It seems like no matter how much bug spray I use, its just never enough so I typically prefer to spend my evenings inside with the glow of my computer monitor.  However, for those that do enjoy spending a little time outside roasting some marshmallows over a fire and happen to be big Lord of the Rings fans, I have found the perfect fire pit for you!

This one-of-a-kind Lord of the Rings firepit is for sale by Etsy member ImagineMetalArt for $557.31!  It features an 8″ wide version of the One Ring, Sauron and a food tray that swings in and out of the fire pit for those that want to do a little grilling over an open flame.  It measures 3′ high and 4′ wide.  It also looks a bit scary at night when the fire is going which you can see in the picture below!

Game Boy Ice Cream Sandwiches

Game Boy Ice Cream Sandwiches

One of my favorite frozen treats as a kid and something I still have pretty much daily at work is the popular ice cream sandwich.  While I have always preferred to get mine from Schwans, for those that might be interested in making their own with a bit of a geeky twist, I have found the perfect video for you!

In this episode of Nerdy Nummies, Rosanna Pansino shows you how to create some cute ice cream sandwiches that look like the classic Game Boy handheld.  She does a fantastic job of explaining how to do everything so hopefully you can’t screw up these ice cream sandwiches too bad so that you can enjoy some delicious Game Boy treats this summer!  There are also a ton of helpful links in the YouTube description as well including the square and d-pad templates as well as the list of ingredients she uses and links to where you can find them on Amazon.

If you have kids, this seems like a great thing to make with them and something they will really enjoy when you are done.  If you decide to try making these, let us know how they turned out in the comments below!

There are many days that I miss having a coffee table in my living room but I simply don’t have the room for one anymore.  My old one is sitting in my basement until somebody decides they want it and takes it off of my hands.  However, if I had the room for one, I would love to build a Legend of Zelda coffee table like this one!

This incredible Legend of Zelda pixel art coffee table was created by Instructables user .  If you want to see more pictures including a bunch of the construction as well as find instructions on how you can build your own Legend of Zelda pixel art coffee table, check out their guide over on Instructables.  I can’t speak for anybody else but I know I would love to have this 8-bit looking Hylian Crest coffee table in my living room!
