Cool USB Flash Drives for the Kid Inside

Posted February 5, 2013 by in Tech

Growing up sucks.  There are bills to pay, we have boring obligations and when something breaks it is no longer magically fixed (thanks mom and dad).  Lucky for us, it isn’t all bad and designers from around the globe are doing little things to give us childlike glee.  Check out our list of Cool USB Flash Drives to bring out the kid in you.

Zip Zip USB Flash Drive


These funky little Lego drives were created in Melbourne and have been showcased at the Design Museum of London.  These high speed USB 2.0 Flash Drives come in 4 GB, 8GB and 16 GB and a variety of colours; Black, blue, clear, green, pink, red, white, yellow, and even glow-in-the-dark! PC & Mac compatible, you can even brand your Zip Zip with your logo and pre-load company files onto the bricks for distribution.  Does it get cooler than that?  The Zip Zip USB Flash Drives can be purchased on their Official Website and prices start at $24.95. 


Bob-Omb USB Flash Drive


If you didn’t love Nintendo then you simply weren’t a child of the 90s.  Mario, Bowser and Princess Toadstool influenced many young minds and are still inspiring younger generations. It was really only a matter of time before someone combined Nintendo nostalgia and gadgets.  These handmade Bob-Umb USB flash drives come in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB with more options available.  The Bob-Ombs are made from reused Mario Candy plastic holders and the windup key at the back still works.  Get a 4GB Bob-Omb for $29.95 on Etsy.


Star Wars USB Flash Drives


Star Wars is on everyone’s mind lately due to the news that Disney and JJ Abrams will be helming the new reboot. Could it get worse than the last few?  We hope not, and anxiously await news of the new venture.  In the meantime we can cast away our franchise related concerns and throw back to the gold old glory days with these nifty Star Wars UBC flash drives!


Mimoco is a Boston based design house that has been around since 2005.  Their collection of pop-culture USB flash drives and card readers range in sizes from 2GB to 64 GB and prices start around $19.99.  Swing by the Official Website and order your Hello Kitty, G.I. Joe or Batman USB flash drive today!
