Gifts for Pittsburgh Steeler Fans

Gifts for Pittsburgh Steeler Fans

Our family is now on the fourth generation of Steeler fans. And, we sure do have our fair share of Pittsburgh Steelers fan merchandise. In the photo is our son Sammy and his wife Tricia having fun at a Steeler game.

We grew up in a small town just about 35 miles north of Pittsburgh. This is a photo of our fourth generation of Steeler fans. Aren't they all just so cute?

I remember like it was yesterday the first Pittsburgh Steeler Super Bowl win in 1975. We defeated the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IX. And, I say "We" like I was playing the game!

 From there the Steelers went on to win five more super bowls in 1976, 1979, 1980, 2006, and 2009. Overall the Steelers have appeared in the Super Bowl eight times and have a 6-2 record.

Known as the "City of Champions" in the 1970's for championships won by the Steelers, Pittsburgh Pirates (Baseball) and University of Pitt football team the Pitt Panthers.

The famous black and gold colors of Pittsburgh, adopted by the owner of the Steelers Art Rooney in 1933, and the Pirates in 1948, and then the Pittsburgh Penguins (NHL Hockey Team) in 1979.

Did you know? This makes Pittsburgh the only city in the United States where all three professional sports teams wear the same colors.

Some Pittsburgh Football Facts: Did you know that these famous NFL quarterbacks all came from the Pittsburgh area?

Johnny Unitas       Baltimore Colts
Joe Namath           New York Jets
George Blanda      Oakland Raiders
Joe Montana         San Francisco 49's
Jim Kelly               Buffalo Bills
Dan Marino           Miami Dolphins

Well, that's enough about the history of Pittsburgh sports. As you might have guessed we are huge fans. If you live in this area I'm sure you're a fan, and even if you don't you may be a Pittsburgh Steelers fanatic.

Pittsburgh Steeler fan apparel makes great gifts for anybody on your list. Whatever the occasion sports gear seems to be a go-to gift.

Classic Tinker Toys Construction Set

classic tinker toys construction set
Tinkertoy Classic construction sets have been around for as long as I can remember.

I played with these when I was a kid, and that was a long time ago. My kids played with tinker toys and now my grandchildren are doing the same.

Did you know that Tinker Toys were created by a stonemason? He came up with the design after watching kids play with sticks and spools.

Who would have ever imagined that wooden sticks and spools with holes in them could hold the attention of a child for so long?

This is Tyler with just one of his many creations from our classic wooden tinker toys set.

Tyler will sit and build with these for hours and when he finishes one his projects he can't wait to show it off.

I sit and watch Tyler play with something that he has already built, and I'm just amazed at how his imagination runs wild. 

He plays with it for a while then tears it apart and begins to build something new. The ages on the 225 piece set that we have are 3+. How true, because I have just as much fun building with him.

Classic Wooden Tinker Toys are the perfect gift for boys and girls alike.

Here are just a few Tinkertoy Construction Sets to choose from

Me Reader Book Sets

me reader book sets
In my opinion, it is never too early for kids to start reading.

As parents and grandparents, we all want to see our children learn as much as the can.

Our grandson Tyler, got this Star Wars Me Reader as a gift. 

 The Me Reader story reader comes with 8 books and me a reader pad. Choose which book you want to read along both the sides of the pad.

 The icons in the middle of the electronic pad are displayed on each page. Just press the corresponding icon and it reads that page. 

Tyler was so excited to show me his new gift. He opened one of the books and pushed the icon for that page. The e-reader read the page then he looked at me and said: "Is that what it says, grandpa".

I don't believe that this is a substitute for reading to your children. I just think that this is a great way for kids to enjoy books.

These children e-readers make great gifts and are perfect for traveling and summer time reading.  

Reading over the summer can keep the kids in tune to what they learned in school and help prepare for the next school year.

Is this the best e-reader buy? I really don't know all I can tell you is that our grandson loves this one. And, there are so many other Me Reader books sets to choose from. 

I've read many of the reviews and like all products, there are some bad and good. I can say that most are good reviews on the Me Reader Book Sets.
