Gifts to Geek Out Over!

This year A GEEK DADDY decided to highlight great gifts for those people in your life that enjoy the geeky side of life.  These are meant to be great ideas for teens and adults who are kids at heart that appreciate comic book culture, sci-fi and techy things.  Hope you like the items on this year's holiday gift guide:

AIR HOGS DR1 FPV RACE DRONE



This drone toy from Spin Master lets you get a first person viewing perspective as you fly it about.  Place your phone within the provided goggles and have a camera feed from the front of the drone transmitted via Bluetooth so you get the feel of flying inside a cockpit within the toy.  Flight assist technology and a beginner mode setting makes this drone user friendly for practically any pilot to enjoy it.




Any fan of the Despicable Me movies has dreamed about having their own zany yellow henchman to serve them just like Gru does.  Now you can bring home your very own Minion courtesy of WowWee.  Some of my daughters favorite toys including CHiP the Robot Dog, Fingerlings, and MiPosaur have been manufactured by WowWee with the Minion MiP Turbo Dave Balancing Robot recently joining that list.
