D is for The Dark Side

In some houses, the letter D is for dog, but in my house, and I know in many others, it stands for Darth Vader. And The Dark Side. That’s why I’m loving these Star Wars alphabet t-shirts. Related: Star Wars Home t-shirts. Because home is where your ship is. Our friends at Think Geek (love them!) have added a couple of new, cool designs to their collection of Star Wars toddler t-shirts, including the The Dark Side and The Force, both of which join characters like Yoda, Boba Fett, and Vader (to name a few). I actually like them gifted as a pair, sort...

Cool gifts designed by your kids’ favorite gamers and YouTubers at Maker Shop.

My kids are obsessed with Aphmau, the hugely  popular YouTuber, Vlogger, designer — and mom, by the way — who creates the Minecraft roleplay videos they devour like I used to watch, oh, Captain Caveman. I happened to click on the Aphmau Maker Shop link from her Twitter profile while my kids were over my shoulder, and that was the end of that. They are now obsessed with her kitty backpacks — and the knowledge that Maker Shop has tons of items designed by popular gamers and vloggers. And by popular, I mean you may not recognize their names and characters, but your tweens and teens...

May the force be with your feet

Considering how happy I was after clicking through a sock ad on Facebook, I figured maybe I’d go two for two when I saw these Star Wars socks in my feed, because I’ve got a few fans in my house who would love these for back to school. Related: These are the Droid suitcases you’ve been looking for Known for their funky socks and very cool artist collaborations, it’s no surprise that these Star Wars socks from Stance are the coolest I’ve seen. You’ll find all sorts of cool combos, in particular the dynamic duos from the movie, like...

Nothing says you’re in a crappy mood like a poo cap

The instant I saw these emoji baseball caps, I knew I needed them in my life, which probably means the emoji-on-everything craze is about to end (if it hasn’t already). But seriously, a poo cap? It says so much without any words at all. Related: Emoji smart phone cases. Because they’re already all over your phone anyway.  Related: The coolest emoji gifts – insert heart emoji here Emojicap features various emojis embroidered on cotton baseball caps. Very simple, very cool. From fire and broken hearts, to a few emoji I don’t entirely know the meaning of but still use anyway...

Choosy moms choose GIF

We have an ongoing debate around here, knowing that GIF is supposed to be pronounced like the name of a popular peanut butter brand — but still having trouble saying it that way, considering the G stands for graphics which would indicate a hard G. You get our conundrum, right? If you’re not rolling your eyes at our total nerdery-slash-pedantry right now then you’ll appreciate the GIF peanut butter 8-bit t-shirt I just saw at Eternal Weekend which is totally cracking me up. If you really want to go for it, pair them with the peanut butter and jelly leggings at the shop. Just know that sadly,...

Nintendo Vans! Our inner gaming geek is freaking out.

I was just in the Vans store last week buying my daughter a new pair for summer, and of course today they launch their new Vans x Nintendo collection. I’m actually afraid to show them to my video-game loving daughter because you guys, these are pretty damn rad. They’ve definitely got a couple of girlier patterns featuring Princess Peach (surprise), but overall they’re pretty gender neutral with something for every Nintendo lover, leaning more heavily towards Super Mario and Mario Kart. And hey, we know plenty of boys who dig Peach, so we’re glad Vans offers these as kids’...

Star Wars Home t-shirts: Because for Jedis – or smugglers – home is where your ship is

I had to laugh when I saw these clever Star Wars shirts, designed in the style of the popular home state tees you may have seen all over the place. But with these, your little (or big) Star Wars fans can share their love of their home ship instead. We know more than a few kids who would love these shirts, whether they’ve got more of an affinity for the Millennium Falcon, Lando’s Cloud City or even a Jawa Sandcrawler. If you want to get super geeky, you can also grab one featuring Boba Fett’s Slave I ship, and truth be told, I had to Google that one. But maybe your Star...

Stylish touchscreen gloves from Verloop: Because winter is coming

A few weeks ago I was at one of my favorite local boutiques picking up a birthday gift for a friend when I eyed these stylish touchscreen gloves from Verloop. Turns out, Liz had them on her list too, so these get a double Cool Mom Tech seal of approval. I’m a big fan of the bold, colorful styles from this New York-based company, and it doesn’t hurt that you can keep them on and still use your phone or tablet. Isn’t that a must for winter gloves these days? Related: Cool designer tech gifts for the stylish woman on the go...

The perfect shirt for geeks. And well, all busy parents, everywhere.

If you work on your computer all day like I do, and well, like many of us do these days, my guess is that you can totally relate to this funny geeky shirt. But really, any busy parent can probably relate to the sentiment too because oh the juggling, right? I’m guilty of having at least 10 tabs open at a time, maybe more, on my computer, and well, let’s be honest here, in my life. With kids, and work, and um, kids. Sound familiar? Sometimes it feels like I’m just flipping between tabs when really I need to close them all out and reboot. Whoa, pretty...
