Trouble With Tribbles? Well These Certainly Won’T Help [Star Trek]

Sure, you may have loved J.J. Abrams updated take on Star Trek, but it just didn’t have enough tribbles for my taste. Thankfully, there’s a solution for the recent tribble shortage.

Now you can be the proud owner of your own roomful of the little purring furrballs.

tribbles

These interactive replicas of the original TV critters not only look just like the originals, but they vibrate and emit a friendly cooing sound when you move them. For something a bit more disturbing, switch ’em into “agitated mode” for a malicious scream when you pet them (or whenever Klingons are near). How can you resist?

They’re available in classic beige, grey and dark brown – so you can raise a genetically-diverse tribble biomass. You can start collecting your own tribbles over at Entertainment Earth for $24.54 (USD) a pop, or $67.58 for a set of three. If I’m doing my math correctly, you’ll only need to spend about $67,580 if you want to replicate the population that was on the original TV show.
