Space Invaders Mobile: Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?

I've always thought of baby mobiles as colorful and whimsical things parents put above their children's cribs to keep them calm and entertained, not a means of scaring a child into worrying about aliens. The Space Invaders mobile, created by Chicago artist pixelparty turns the usually innocent mobile into a retro geek (and slightly creepy) art piece. It's made from wool felt, dowels and cord and features nine individual “invaders” as well as one “laser base." It costs $70 at Etsy. Is this the perfect gift for a gamer's baby, or too geeky to put in a child's room?

I'd love this for my robot-themed baby room, if it only had some color or contrast. It's really sad, because actually FINDING A SPACE INVADERS MOBILE was so exciting (er, try to have a robot/space-themed room that doesn't have pastels in it, and you'll know what I mean).

why do you need it above a crib or in a child's room? i could see this being used elsewhere. so geeky chic.

Those are pretty! Cute enough not to look like spiders, which scare the heck out of me.

Adorable, but sadly babies aren't old enough to appreciate nostalgia.

Wow. When I read the headline I got really excited because I thought it was Space Invaders for your (mobile) PHONE! Does that make ME geeky or chic?
