I’m a sucker for anything related to classic arcade video games. If I only had all of those quarters back (and invested them wisely,) I would be a very rich man. Regardless, I figure I’m pretty rich thanks to all of the fun times I had playing them.
On one hand, many of the fans of the original Doom games are too old to be playing with plushies. On the other hand, some kids might be find these toys too freaky. So really, these are for teenagers who may or may not have played Doom.
Forget Jelly Babies. Forget fish fingers and custard. And please, let’s forget the Doctor pinning celery to his jacket. Toast. That’s the new Timelord’s favorite food. Hopefully the 12th Doctor will love toast. But if he doesn’t, here is a piece of plush toast dressed like the 11th Doctor.
It started out as a joke, but Shark Pony and the Glitter Riders sounds like a pretty amusing concept for a comic if you ask me. And while the comic itself looks hilarious, this plush creation by RoboShark that goes with it is what really caught my eye.
These are the most malicious plushies you’ll ever see. They’re the Computer Virus Dolls and they might rub you off the wrong way, especially if you’re into IT and have to deal with problems that are caused by them on a daily basis.
The release of Pokémon X and Y is still about three months away. But because we live in the age of pre-orders, Banpresto is already dangling plushies of the game’s starter monsters to fans. You don’t have to choose between Chespin, Fennekin and Froakie either, because you can order them as a set.
A few months ago we saw a couple of pillow cases that would be right at home in Aiur. This stuffed toy on the other hand is for those who are loyal to the Swarm. It’s a plush toy of the Zerg Overlord based on its apperance in StarCraft.
We’ve seen a Game Boy pillow before, but these “GameKid” pillows by Brazilian shop Verso are soooo much cuter. They come in different colors and are even printed with different games on the back. Here’s the original dirty white model putting on his best Old Snake impression:
Everybody has one: a toy from their childhood that will always have a special significance in their lives. For John Bennett, it was Ted, a stuffed teddy bear that came to life after John wished for it one Christmas night.
“Be the first in your dentist’s office with a plush tooth or the first on your block with a squashy snuggly eyeball.”
We’re just suckers for these super adorable plush toys of innards and body parts by I Heart Guts.
ThinkGeek has released what may be the only arcade cabinet that the kids of tomorrow will be able to touch. He’s called Tomo, an Arcadean – an anthropomorphic arcade cabinet – that should please kids while making their elders weep for the old days.
Check out these new plush Direwolves. They are from a new line of Game of Thrones toys from Factory Entertainment. Aside from Direwolves, they will be offering plush dragon eggs, dragons and shield-shaped throw pillows as well as some prop replicas and sculptural miniatures.
