Retro is in and geeky is in. Pacman retro geeky gifts employ a winning combination of nerdiness and nostalgia that everyone can enjoy.
Long before the era of iPhones, gaming systems, and high def multiplayer games, we went to arcades and pumped quarters into machines to play Asteroids and Space Invaders.
Then, along came Pac-man, and the game playing frenzy exploded. It was a phenomenon that began in Japan, and spread around the world like wildfire. Variations and merchandise soon followed.
Whether you are one of those more mature nerds who paid quarter after quarter to play the original game, someone who first met Pacman as an emoticon, or somewhere in between, you've probably had at least one encounter with the little yellow dot eater.
So, for you, here are some fun Pac-Man facts and historical tidbits, along with some clever gift items inspired by the craze.
Almost anyone will get a smile, maybe a wistful one, from some of the pacman themed items shown on this page. Who knows? Maybe you'll find something that you just can't resist gifting to your favorite Pac-Man fan.
