Wednesday Ebay Roundup

Otherwise known as: what I would buy if I had cash to burn.

First up today:

Derpy Hooves

A custom painted My Little Pony G4 to resemble everyone’s favorite dim-witted background character on MLP Friendship is Magic. Only one day left on this little lovely, the bid is currently $22.   (Now if only someone will make a Dr. Whoof)

Speaking of the good doctor…


Will I ever tire of jewelry inspired by the Time And Relative Dimension In Space vessel? Not likely. This watch is adorable and subtle enough to wear everyday. Buy It Now price is $13.99.

In other space related fanciness…

Star Trek cufflinks

Whether it’s your big day, a promotion, a night on the town or a funeral – nothing says I am dressed up like cufflinks inspired by the Federation Starfleet. 1 day left and they are only 99 cents.

Now on to more literary pursuits…

The Wookie Storybook

This 1979 story is based on the Star Wars Holiday Special.  The art is great and if your child is Star Wars obsessed (are there kids out there that aren’t?) then they will probably love seeing Chewbacca’s family – especially his unfortunately named son, Lumpy.  4 days left, current bid is 99 cents.

Baby Norbert

The cute little dragon Hagrid hatched from an egg comes with his own little wooden crate.  The Buy It Now Price is 32.47 but there is also a Best Offer option.

Police Academy Bow Biters

FACT: There is a law in physics which states that no child’s shoe laces will remain tied for more than 30 minutes at a time.  So most of the day I am bent over retying my three year old’s Chuck Taylors.  But those days are over now that I remembered Bow Biters. I had Miss Piggy when I was little, and while those are not available nearly everything else is, including this fantastic set inspired by the film antics of America’s favorite lovable, rag-tag team of jokesters who are training to defend our streets.  Buy it Now for $14.90

Jean Luc Picard Baby Onesie

The title says it all, doesn’t it?  Available for $11 bucks a pop.

Star Wars Comic Books

A lot of 16 books from 1978 – 81 in good/decent shape. My big kid would love them. This would be like buying a couple of days of silence. Available until July 25th at $25 or best offer.

Babyland Cloth Diapers

Who says starting a diaper stash has to be expensive? This is a lot of seven all-in-one, one-size diapers. For those of you who don’t know the jargon it means they are as easy to put on and take off as a disposable and they will fit your child from 8 to 30 lbs.  They are available at a buy it now price of $22 and up for another 9 days.

Vintage Camera

Channel your inner Colin Creevy with this Argus C3 Rangefinder complete with original flash. Available for the B.I.N. price of $129.  Ends July 30th.


Wednesday Ebay Roundup

Now it’s time for another installment of things I would buy if I had money to burn.

Plush Ludo Toy

A cuddly stuffed version of everyone’s favorite monster from The Labyrinth. There are 4 days left on his auction and he is $159.99 currently.  If I had this I would just walk around making him say, “Smell baaaaaaaaaad” to my kids for days.  They should be thankful we are not rich.

This model of the Star Trek ship is from 1991 and has lights and sounds.  It’s auction has 6 days left and it’s currently at $34.99. Engage!

Glow-in-the-dark Frankenberry figure

The title says it all. It can be yours for $23.88.

Angry Birds Plush Set

The only thing my kid would like better than playing the Angry Birds video game is playing actual launching birds at piggies, “Especially the one with the mustache.”  This one ends in just 2 days. Bid is currently 99 cents.

Ergo Baby Carrier

Ergo makes one of the most comfortable over-the-shoulder baby holders ever. They are safe for infants to kids up to 40lbs. This one is slightly used but still adorable with embroidered stars. The auction ends in 4 days and the current bid is $24.99. (Which is about $60 cheaper than a new one). Snatch this up, your back will thank you.

Dammit Jim, Will They Even Need a Doctor?

Star Trek fans are more than familiar with the device known as a tricorder.  For those readers who are not that devoted to the voyages of the starship Enterprise, a tricorder is a handheld device that members of the crew use to analyze various things, download data and make medical diagnosis.  The last function is the focus of the Tricorder X Prize Competition.

Life Sciences Prize Group is offering up $10 million dollars to the person or company that can deliver a real live functioning medical tricorder. The goal is to provide the public with a device that could diagnose patients as accurately as a physician right in the patients home.  It’s like Robo-WebMD.
