Child’s Play Good Guys Talking Doll: Friends to the End

Aliens M41A1 Pulse Rifle Replica: Kill the Queen
I can remember to this day how scared I was the first time I watched Aliens growing up. That movie was so cool I couldn’t look away, but I certainly didn’t sleep much that night. I remember ol’ Brown Bess from the movie, even though that rifle didn’t save the Marines.

Obi Laser Pet Toy: Force Distract
Would you pay $80 for a laser pointer? It won’t even fit in your pants or help you pretend you’re Iron Man. But the Obi could keep pets off your back, and entertain them when you don’t have the energy or even when you’re not around.

Cat Jenga: Feline Tower of Pisa

Cat Jenga: Feline Tower of Pisa
It’s pretty hard to stack real cats. They won’t stand for it. That’s why we need Cat Jenga. In Cat Jenga, you don’t remove cats one at a time, but instead, you see how many cats you can add to your cat tower before it falls.
