We had a chance to visit the Googleplex in Silicon Valley last week and made a point to get over to the swag store. The store isn’t open to the public, however – you’ll need to grab a Googler to get you in. Prices for most things are about what you’d expect – $18 for a T-shirt, $9 for a winter cap, etc. Apparently, however, the store was out of the prize attraction when we visited: large plush Android figurines. Anyway, if you haven’t seen the store before, below is a quick minute tour.

Maybe some day we’ll see a Google Store right across from the Apple and Microsoft stores in the Mall of America? Wouldn’t that be something?
