Not so long ago, I made a purchase from the good folks at ThinkGeek. I purchased some very cool and very magnetic ‘Bucky Balls‘. They’re proving to be a great conversation starter and welcomed stress reliever… However, I’m ever mindful to keep them away from my gadgets (I suppose I should explain, Bucky Balls are 216 spherical rare earth magnets that can be bended and molded into countless shapes, sculptures and patterns). With those darn Bucky Balls staring me in the face, I happened to come upon something else at ThinkGeek for the Android fanboy and fangirl out there. Yes, I’m talking to you. As you can probably guess, I’m referring to the Android Plush Robot you see pictured above (and below). Yes, it’s very real, and ThinkGeek has it for sale right now for only $9.99. Here are some of the key features you’ll find on this fuzzy green character:
- Approximately 9″ tall
- Posable articulated head and arms
- For folks who are attached to their smartphone
- Snuggle your phone by day, this plush by night
My advice? If you’re an Android fan, get one now. I have a feeling this product sells out mighty fast. If you could care less about Android, pick one up anyway. With the rapid growth of Android in recent history, chances are you’ll find a friend, family member or colleague that will take it off your hands.
