When they’re at a particular age, kids love to draw. Whether it’s stick figures or colored drawings, the sky’s the limit when it comes to kids’ imaginations. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could give them a present that’s truly their own?
ThinkGeek is blackmailing kindhearted people with its blobfish plush. What’s a blobfish? This poor creature was voted the world’s ugliest animal. To make things even more insulting, blobfish are endangered animals and don’t look hideous when in their natural habitat, thousands of feet underwater.
From ThinkGeek’s Radiant Farms – the fictional ranch that brought you Canned Unicorn Meat – comes another yummy mythical meal. With, Canned Dragon Meat you’ll get “100% of your daily value of havoc, terror, inferno, destruction, magic, and rage.”
Talking toys are nothing new, but most toys simply spout off pre-recorded sound bites. Not Supertoy Teddy. He’s a teddy bear that can actually hold a conversation, i.e. it will listen to what you say and respond accordingly.
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.

Each adorable widdle monster will come with a special code that will unlock its virtual, non-combat, account-bound equivalent.
That’s right: each Spock Monkey is a combination of three halves, resulting in one logical, emotionally detached yet huggable primate. I used Vulcan math to calculate Spock Monkey’s constitution.
Each Spock Monkey is lovingly handmade, so each of them is unique.
I’m pretty sure that the guys at Ozaki love Brando. My proof? Ozaki’s iMini Pet. Like most of Brando’s gadgets, it’s a mish mash of functionality – in this case an iPod dock, a radio and an alarm clock – with a touch of weird – a stuffed pet that can “dance” as music is being played.
Ever wanted to hug an accurate representation of the Black Death bacterium? Or punt an Athlete’s Foot fungus for all those embarrassing years in high school? Or play house with a sperm cell and an egg cell?
Toy store FAO Schwarz has a special service whose results could either be really cool or really abysmal. Although the store’s name sounds like it should be a division of the German army, the name of their service is straight to the point: Make-My-Own-Monster.
