ThinkGeek "Geek Kids" Twin Sheet Set

Back to school season does not only mean new clothes and school supplies.  Many parents take this opportunity to give some new life to their child's room, where they spend quite a lot of time sleeping and studying.

Just in time before school officially begins, we put these super-fun new Geek Kids bed sheets from ThinkGeek on our boys' bunk beds.  As products of my husband and myself, how could our children not be geeks at heart?

These sheets are a soft 200 thread count poly/cotton blend.  They washed very well without any fading or pilling and with very minimal wrinkling.  The set comes with a flat top sheet, a fitted sheet, and, not one, but two standard pillowcases.  Having an extra pillow case is great because, for children who may have respiratory allergies, it helps to have their pillow case changed frequently.

Both our boys (ages 4.5 and 7.5) love the colorful print on these "Geek Kid" sheets.  Even though we put them on our sons' beds, this bedding would also be suitable for a girl.  The original ThinkGeek illustrations on the linens include  a dragon, a monkey, a dinosaur, an astronaut, a unicorn, and more.  Our two sons both said the ninja was their favorite.

I think these sheets would be perfect for a preschool-aged geekling all the way to a full-grown college-aged geek.  The "Geek Kids" Twin Sheet Set retails for $29.99, but is currently on promotion for $9.99, right in time for back-to-school.  Visit and ThinkGeek on Facebook to view more fun products for geeks of all ages.
