If you are a true Transformers fan at heart you can’t miss these Japanese capsule toys. There are six different models each of them about 2″ long that are modeled to the main characters in the recent movie Transformers. So go get them Optimus Prime and the best thing is that besides the small transforming car-robot toy you also get a delicious Japanese candy with each one…
Keep in mind that these Micro Transformers Toys are limited edition Japanese imported capsule toys and are random packed. And this means that even if you order six of them you are going to get all the different models, actually you can even get 6 micro Transformers of the same model. Anyway they are quite cheap so you can get even more in order to collect them all and the repeating ones can become a great gift for your friends that also like Transformers… 😉
The price of the Micro Transformers is just $5.99, but the stock is limited!
Another crazy Japanese product, a USB dog that is humping your laptop. And that’s it, they do nothing more and don’t serve any actual purpose, the USB Humping dogs are just some fun toys that can entertain you and your friends for a while. They also work as a great idea for a gift and are quite original too. Be aware that a Humping Dog is not a USB flash drive although it looks like one and plugs in a USB port. Currently there are five types of dogs you can choose from – boxer, beagle, husky, doberman and shiba.
USB Humping Dog is available in boxer and beagle version for $6.99 and husky, doberman and shiba for $9.99.
When you first take him out of his box, T.M.X. Elmo from Fisher-Price doesn’t seem all that grand. He looks after all, well, like Elmo. Covered in the soft red fur that one would expect from everyone’s favorite Sesame Street character, T.M.X. Elmo stands an unimposing 14 inches tall. Even worse, he feels all hard and plasticy under his fur. But this Elmo is not meant for cuddles or hand holding or swaddling.
Sit T.M.X. Elmo down and hit one of his three “tickle” spots. There’s one under his chin, one on his belly, and one on top of his foot. Yes, this Elmo wiggles just like he did 10 years ago, but that’s just the start. Elmo slaps his belly, falls forward with his butt sticking out, stands back up again only to topple backwards, kicks his legs over his belly, and then stands right back up, all while laughing hysterically.
Elmo gets more outrageous when you “tickle” him a second time, and the fun really starts with the third “tickle” session. Elmo’s fancy moves include falling over on his side, shimmying on his back, and what seems to be everyone’s favorite: lying flat on his belly slapping the floor next to him as if he can’t stop laughing. This Elmo has a serious case of the giggles. His trademark voice builds into a fit of histrionics, endless snickers that drown out everything but an unintelligible cackle until even Elmo admits he has had too much.
T.M.X Elmo requires 6 AA batteries, which are included, although these wore down quickly in our review copy. Elmo also has an on/off switch, so the tickles can be brought to an end when more than just Elmo has had too much. He moves a lot and needs a little open space for the full performance, although he does use his arm to determine his orientation periodically and stand back up if nothing is in the way. He gets a little stuck on uneven surfaces but for the most part performs amazingly well on carpet. On hardwood floors, Elmo works, but he occasionally slams his eyes on the floor in a way that seems it should halt the show.
You can buy TMX Elmo Toy for about $90 USD.
