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.

Have you ever played Pac-Man? Which of the Products on this page most appeals to you?
CruiseReady, The arcade, the cubes and the cup are my favorites.
I sure did, although Tetris was my favorite game. It's always great to see one of these old games, which remind us of great times. Pac-Man was definitely one of the top time killers!
We would go to the arcade to play. After a certain time the underaged had a curfew, and the arcade sent them home. Then, we could get to a game. My first computer was an Arati 400 to play Pac Man. I prefer the original.
I spent just a few dollars myself, but not as much as a lot of others. And yes, I agree about the coffee cup
I spent hundreds of dollars on Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and Asteroids. It would be fun to have the "real thing" if I had a game room. I also like the coffee mug;it would be a great gift!
