Last week, while I was combing the bazaars of Kuala Lumpur for little trinkets to take home as gifts, I came across tons of stuff that I suppose will delight many of our ForeverGeek readers. From Domo-kun plushies and shirts to Angry Birds key chains ((Yup, I gave in and got two.)) to Superman/Batman belts to geek-themed mouse pads – they were all over the place. I remember the last group of items particularly because I remember thinking to myself “Who uses mouse pads these days?” I’ve been wrong before, and I am probably wrong now. If DesignNoy’s Etsy Shop ((DesignNoy)) is any indication, people still do use mouse pads. What’s more, people pay for the mouse pads, too!
Here are some of the coolest mouse pads you’ll see this week. Heck, maybe this month. I know for sure they’re way better than the knockoffs I saw at the bazaars. ((Thought to ponder: Can we consider Etsy creations knockoffs?))
Minecraft Mouse Pad
Zelda Mouse Pad
Pac-Man Mouse Pad
Mario Bros Mouse Pads
That scene is ever so familiar to anyone who has played Mario. It’s even more familiar for those who have to keep going back to the start. ;)
Here’s another Mario-inspired mouse pad if World 1-1 is not your thing.
All the mouse pads are cloth-topped with a non-slip, non-marking rubber base. They measure in at approximately 9-1/4″ x 7-3/4″ and are 1/4 of an inch thick. If you don’t feel like using a mouse pad – or you have no need of them – you’ll always have some space on your fridge door.
