Hey kids, look! Boing Boing has a shop! We've always wanted a store that reminded us of the mind-boggling Johnson Smith Catalog of yesteryear, and now we have one! We've partnered with our mutant friends at Neatorama to offer an assortment of gadgets, gear, and gewgaws.

In the meantime, here are a few items I recommend:
Triceratops 3D Anatomy Model
Yumbots Robot Cupcake Molds
Eyeball - Salt & Pepper Shakers
Switch Pop Bottle Opener
