Young Mad Scientist Alphabet Blocks ($27)

Is there a nobler nerd calling than that of mad scientist? These Young Mad Scientist Alphabet Blocks [1] are engraved with illustrations of different disciplines of mad scientists including L for Laser, E for Experiment, and U for Underground Lair. If that's not geeky enough for you, the blocks have a super-secret built-in encryption function — if you rotate any block 180 degrees, it'll encode to ROT13.

Plush Caltrop Set ($16)

A Caltrop was a weapon favored by cavalrymen from the late Middle Ages. Duh. This Plush Caltrop Set [2] allows tots to work out their jock revenge fantasies without doing any real damage.

HTML for Babies ($9)

A is for Atom, B is for Binary Code, C is for Cell Membrane in these Nerdy Baby ABC Flashcards for Very Young Scientists [4].

My Dad's a Geek Onesie ($24)

My dad's a geek [6]. Yup, he is, and I'm proud!

Little Star Wars Costumes ($13-$20)

Just in time for Halloween (or the next convention, whichever comes first), Little Star Wars Costumes [10] are the perfect daddy and baby costume idea. Luke, I am your father. Major bonus points if the baby is really named Luke, which he probably is if his father is attending Star Wars conventions on a regular basis.
