ThinkGeek, Please Make These Peeps

Marshmallow Creeps

Every year ThinkGeek likes to tease us with a wonderful array of fake products we’d love to waste money on. Well, some of us any way, and this year was no exception. Some of their better gag gifts this year included a Skyrim electronic dragon shout hoodie, Minecraft-themed green marshmallow peeps, or ‘Creeps,’ and even an inflatable Star Trek Captain’s chair. Okay, so that last one is actually a real product they’re selling. Still, a Skyrim dragon shout hoodie? I’d totally get one for Halloween next year.

It’s not likely, but at least one of their previous April Fool’s gags led to an actual product down the line.  The iCade gaming peripheral for the iPad started out as a joke, but led to an actual product down the line. Now, I can’t imagine an actual demand for any of these products warranting their actual production, but I wouldn’t be surprised if someone goes through with it, and if they do I’ll probably be in line to throw money. After all, who doesn’t want to run around annoying their co-workers with automated Fus-Roh-Dah’s or fill their nephew’s Easter baskets with Creeps.
