OMGZ. Holidays. Joy. Christmas. Chanukah. Help. Presents. Family. Help.

That chain reaction of thoughts is what blasts through my mind about once an hour. Sometimes the order is right-on, sometimes it gets mixed up. But no matter what, ‘help’┬áis in there twice.

And if you need some stress relief, or simply want to decorate the Christmas tree in a retro-geeky style with your kiddo, then this Classic Video Game Controller Ornament Set should do the trick.

A Jolly Atari 2600, Sega Megadrive, NES and Sony Playstation Christmas

The most epic of all us geeky parents probably has one of these real-life controller and real-life system that they hope will instill the joys of retro gaming in their kid.

While my family doesn’t (we’re going to rely on Emulators and ROMs… And maybe one day buy an old school SNES), and while my family doesn’t even celebrate Christmas (I am scouring the Internet for an old school Menorah without any luck), I know that if we DID celebrate Christmas, that this ornament set would be a must-have.

Think of all the benefits:

  1. You get a geeky Christmas tree
  2. Your little Geek might express interest in these ‘antiques’
  3. It could prompt discussions of old school Zelda, Mario, Sonic, and Final Fantasy games
  4. In a best-case scenario, you can parlay this convo into downloading Final Fantasy IV onto your iPad… Or installing an NES emulator and playing Metroid or Super Mario Bros 3 or Punch-Out or The Legend of Zelda or Ninja Gaiden or Battletoads or Bubble Bobble or… or… OMG. Must. Do. This. Now.
