I am so excited to share with you today about this AMAZING company, ThinkGeek is an online store that caters to the techies, programmers, students, gadget and gizmo lovers, and to the wonderful “tech geek culture” that I proudly consider myself a member of 😉
ThinkGeek really has something for EVERYONE! They have a huge selection of uber fun and very cool products, from Geek Toys and Gadgets, Home Office and Electronics, to awesome Edibles like Bacon Jelly Beans, Miracle Berry Fruit Tablets(I have tried these, they are AWESOME!) to “Freakin’ Magical Unicorn Gum! They even have a Geek Kids section and one of a kind items exclusive to their store!
I have a purchase a few items from ThinkGeek and have been very satisfied, with not only their super affordable prices but with the outstanding quality of their products! I have their X-mini iHome Capsule Speaker (huge clear sound) and their Portable Photo Studio (which I LOVE!!!) I have tried some of their yummy edibles as well: Cupcakes mints and Miracle Fruit tablets (which are amazing!)
But today I will be sharing with you about this little beauty of a product!
The GP2X Wiz is a revolutionary handheld game console.

It is not only one of the coolest handheld gaming systems on the market, but it also has all of these great and very useful capabilities: games, Flash, Video, SDcard slot (1GB of storage is built-in) music, photo, comics, e-Books, calendar, memo, clock, alarm, and a calculator!
The system come with some pre installed flash games, but the rest is up to you, you can download amazing games to your hearts content!! (this is super easy-no worries here)
” Incredible MAME emulation allows you to run all your favorite arcade video game classics, even vector games.”
- Emulation for thousands of different games
- Not just console games, but arcade games too
“You can run Atari ST games, Commodore 64, NES, SNES, Gameboy, Gameboy Advance, NeoGeo, Flash Games and more!!”
The picture quality on this baby is way better than I even expected, super clear with amazing color, this system will not disappoint even the most experienced gamer.
I, of course, let the boy give it a test run (I actually couldn’t pry it from his hands!) this is his new fave item, hands down!
