My Submission for "Best Toy EVER!"
This past weekend was my daughter's birthday. While shopping for her last week I discovered these "Scooby Doo Goo Figure Pod" toys at Toys R Us. These are small pods of slime with a Scooby Doo mini-figure blindly packed inside.
So knowing my daughter likes slime and Scooby Doo, I picked one up to pack into a present.
It was a hit! I quickly ran to Toys R Us to get more of them to give to her sister and cousins (and of course myself) so we could all share in the fun.
And oh boy, what fun!
First off: slime. Which is always awesome forever end of story.
Second, these little Scooby Doo figurines are incredibly cool! I and my nephew got a monster, my daughters and niece got versions of Scooby, everyone was happy.
Mine is this zombie guy from the classic cartoon. I'm pretty sure he's just old man Jenkins in a mask, but whatever, zombies are in this season so I am pleased.
*EDIT: This guy is actually "The Creeper" aka Mr. Karswell.
Yes folks, that comedy gold you just heard was made with the slime and container it comes in (and my hand of course.)
Sufficed to say there was a lot of those noises and the laughter that ensued all weekend. The kids even had fart contests, competing to win 'loudest,' 'longest' and the coveted 'juiciest' of all fart noises.
Comedy GOLD I tells ya!
So for a mere $3.99 you get three toys in one! Slime, a mini-figure, and a fart maker! It's a hat trick!
How any other toy maker can compete with their 'toys that only do one thing' in these troubled economic times is beyond me.
