This is funny

I saw this on a boingoboingo blog. My life made into a toy. Looks like a great holiday gift. If I picked up this one too, I'd feel right at home.

Of course, I'd need to round it out with a good ride.

All I had as a kid was some old gas station, how far we have come.

Speaking of funny toys, I always thought this was a neat idea, although it would survive about 15 minutes in my household.

Gizmodo is cool - always see at least one interesting thing per day there.

Although I agree, boingoboingo sounds like much more fun.

I liked the run away alarm linked from your link. Although I heard a bit on the radio awhile ago about someone who was making an alarm clock that would jump off the table and do a random walk around the floor when you hit the snooze button.

Just what I need, 4 cats and a dog chasing the alarm clock around my bedroom first thing in the morning.

My nephew has that airport! The information desk comes with a little laptop. I can't see any wires so the airport must be a wireless hotspot. Amazing what they can do these days :)

Since sites linked by you get a surge on statistics - I wonder if millions of children will get soon an email from amazon saying "we've noticed that people that bought Playmobil toys also bought these books by Thomas Kyte ..." ...

(nice scarf in Robert's image btw, congratulations ;)
