dalek baby

Comedian and writer Rye Silverman spent time at Gallifrey One this weekend and he’s found living proof of the most adorably terrifying creature in existence. A Dalek Caan baby stroller.

It’ll lull you in with baby cuteness and then it’ll exterminate you. Talk about an abomination!

x-wing rocker 1

It’s never too early to let your child pilot a spaceship. That’s especially true if said spaceship only rocks back and forth and can’t actually launch into a dogfight. This Star Wars X-wing rocker by Steve’s Wooden Toys fits the safety bill, and it’s quite the sight. It’s handcrafted from pine, rimu, and macrocarpa woods and features a removable R2-D2 so your kid can take him everywhere.

It was available for sale as of October to New Zealand residents. If you could get the X-wing rocker and make this AT-AT one, you’d have the coolest toys this side of Tatooine.

Check out more photos of the beautiful rocker after the break.

jaws baby bed 4

Prop maker, RPF member, and doting uncle Joseph Reginella made this one of a kind Jaws-themed bassinet for his nephew, which I’m pretty sure puts him in the favorite uncle category.

Of course, Joseph better get to work on a new one because as he grows, his nephew’s gonna need…a bigger boat.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

Sims demon baby 1

The Sims 4 was released two days ago, and the first major glitch has already shown up: demon babies. Some of the digital offspring in the game look like crazy Cthulhu or demon-like creatures that are deformed with elongated limbs. You think they look scary in stills? Wait until you see them in videos.

See videos of the demon babies after the break (some feature NSFW language).

game of thrones baby bday

If you’re going to throw a birthday party for a one year old, finding a way to make it fun for the kid and tolerable for the adults is a parenting win.

In this case, I think these parents more than won. I think they conquered.

Eric and Lisa Cheung threw a Game Of Thrones themed birthday party for their daughter Emma complete with an Iron Throne, candy apple Stark Heads and a Happy Name Day banner.

Emma and her cats both seem to love the Iron Throne. Which, thankfully, is forged of foam, construction paper and crafty marker work.

Check out more pictures of Emma, Queen Of The Seven Catdoms after the break.

mario mobile 1

If decorating the entire nursery in geek themed everything isn’t for you, consider adding a small touch with an adorable and nerdy mobile. The item seems to be a staple in decor for a baby’s room, and it’s the perfect place to start showing your children the characters you like – it’s totally not brainwashing. Etsy seller Drops of Color has just the solution for you; they make mobiles by hand with teeny tiny felt plush characters. Just look at how cute the Super Mario Bros. one is – even the Goomba!

Each mobile comes with five characters, and you can pick them! Princess Peach, Luigi, Yoshi – how will you choose? After you’ve made your selections, the mobile is made to order and takes about 8-10 weeks to arrive at your doorstep.

Super Mario Bros. isn’t the only geeky option either. Check out Star Wars and superhero mobiles after the break.

Here’s what happens when you let the internet make important decisions for you. Father-to-be Stephen McLaughlin created a website to let the internet help name his baby girl who is due on April 2nd. So far, there are some pretty interesting names including:

Cthulhu Titanium McLaughlin
Streetlamp Salad McLaughlin
Luna Le-Dash-A McLaughlin
Megatron Doge McLaughlin
Zelda Meagan McLaughlin
Not Zelda Meagan McLaughlin

Don’t worry for this poor child’s fate however. Mom-to-be knows what Dad is up to and it seems that the internet names are going to be treated as suggestions only.

This is the kind of prank that could scare the life out of someone. It was all part of a promotion for an upcoming horror movie called Devil’s Due. The people at Thinkmodo made a freaky, animatronic demon baby then set it rolling along in an unattended carriage on the streets of NYC. When people stopped to make sure they baby was okay, all hell broke lose.

See the video after the break…

gears of war baby

Game developer Ben Stirling is the proud papa of a one year old, so it’s not surprising that he would celebrate his kid’s birthday by inserting him and his achievements into popular video games like Mario Kart, Mass Effect, Portal and more.

I don’t really need to tell you to hit the jump right? Cause you’re gonna do it anyway, right?

tali'zorah

The name Tali’Zorah has been typed onto a little baby girl’s birth certificate thanks to Mass Effect loving gamer and new dad Adam and his wife.

The unique name seems to have been shortened to Tali by most of the hospital staff, but both parents think the full version is beautiful and have been set on it from day one.

However, Adam discussed their decision on The Escapist forums, and a flood of comments ensued with a variety of opinions. People accused Adam of using his kid as a “pet”, of ruining her life, of not caring that she’d be mocked. It was kinda…nuts. He writes:

Anyway, tomorrow my daughter is scheduled to be born. I’m freaking out and all that, but that’s not why I’m here. Since day 1, her first name was always going to be Tali’Zorah. It’s not necessarily “named after Mass Effect”, but rather my wife fell in love with the name during our first playthrough of ME1 many years ago. Confused friends and relatives are told “we wanted a nice Quarian name” just because it’s funny to see the confusion become worse.

All that aside, a couple of people have told me that we’re nuts for giving a child that name. I like it a lot, I’m assuming she’ll like it, and I don’t think she’ll get teased for it or anything like that. Out of curiosity, am I totally off base about that? For further discussion value, this thread can be about the entire concept of video games being used to inspire names.

Sure, Adam asked, but even he came back to the thread the next day to remark that he never thought it would get that sort of feedback.

I dunno. I like it. It’s pretty and, apparently, she won’t be alone in having been named after a video game character. Kotaku notes that they were informed that other babies have been named Liara, Garrus Cortana and Raiden.

Here’s a link to Adam’s more recent update, complete with a pretty on target observation on the nature of internet comments. ::grin::
