Thanks to Offbeat Home reader Stephanie who uploaded pics to our Flickr pool of her most charmingly geeky nursery! Look closely at that photo, there are unexpected geeky touches in every part of this room — feminist scientist artwork, a lamp made of lab materials, and a chair upholstered with a double helix pattern… just to name a few things.
Let’s push up our glasses and peer closely at this room…
Comments on Geeky, science-themed nursery for the child of a librarian
This is fucking rad! I love how cozy yet functional it is. <3
Take my money!! Where do I get all this stuff?? Plus the Hobbes doll? This is fabulous and is sure to be the treasured space of a super smart kiddo!
I think the tigers in the pic are both Tigger? But if you’re crafty at all you can make your own Hobbes from fleece! My husband made one with this pattern for our nephew: http://www.instructables.com/id/Stuffed-Hobbes-with-pattern/
Gah I love this. As a scientist I kind of want all of that stuff in my own bedroom. But seriously, I am going to so steal all of these ideas for baby gifts for which ever of my scientist friends has a baby next.
I see one of my favourite books, “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie”! YAYYYYYY! Loving the print on the chair, and the retort stand lamp/flower holder, too. Genius!
This is so cool! As for the alphabet flash cards, here’s another idea: friends of mine recently hosted a non-baptism for their daughter (i.e. they’re not religious, but they wanted to throw a party on the occasion of her birth). Each guest got a sheet of paper with a letter on it just like these flash cards. We could pick an animal/object/whatever beginning with that letter, draw it on the paper and write its name on the paper (we did “B is for bumblebee” and “S is for satellite”). Our friend will have them made into a book for her kid to look at when she gets older. I loved that idea!
This is such an incredible idea!
This is so creative and so friggin’ cute! And I want that lamp.
PS. Sally Ride wrote some children’s books so if you don’t already have any you should look them up!
Love it! The extra flashcard in the middle frame that says “nerdy baby” is really cute. 🙂 I had never seen the “Grandfather Twilight” book before, but I think I’m going to be picking that up now!
Loved the innovative designs and creativity
