“Blah! Blah! Blah!” The children of Miri’s planet rejoice! Think Geek has a brand new Star Trek Enterprise Light Up Feeding System for infants aged 12 months and older. Priced at $24.99, the system includes both a light up bib featuring an animation styled Deep Space Station K7 and Klingon battle cruiser and a light up 8.5” long and 3” wide USS Enterprise with detachable spoons.
