Steampunk for children
(Jeff Vandermeer's books "Steampunk," "Steampunk II: Steampunk Reloaded" and "The Steampunk Bible" are good introductions.)
Magazines have adopted the imagery of steampunk for fashion shoots. There are original online comics with steampunk elements, most notably the recently completed "Freakangels" and the ongoing "Girl Genius." The recent "Three Musketeers" film adds some steampunky elements, including airships. Amazon.com is full of original e-books in the genre, often combined with romance fiction and/or erotica.
Now steampunk is coming for your children. Casssandra Clare has included steampunk elements in her "Mortal Instruments" and "Infernal Devices" series, but the recent "Steampunk! An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange Stories," edited by Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant, is, I think, the first to make its steampunk connection explicit. And Edgar Allan Poe is getting a steampunk makeover, for ages 12 and older, with "Steampunk: Poe," illustrated by Zdenko Basic. The text of the selected stories is unchanged, but several steampunkish illustrations have been added. I've seen some of them on Amazon.com, and they look marvelous. I'm not sure if they will inspire me to buy the volume (I already have several Poe collections, including a few illustrated ones), but a steampunk "Frankenstein" is also scheduled, and I'm looking forward to it.
