Since my unhatched chickens have started to hatch, can I have a robot chick?
ThinkGeek (easily the best store on teh intratoobz) just emailed me about this irrationally adorable invention. (The fact that it arrived in my inbox on the same day that my eggs hatched seems entirely serendipitous.) It sits on your hand, chirps, wiggles its wings, and responds to human touch. If you ignore it, it will cry. It is so life-like that, according to the website, dogs will be fooled. It’s not the cheapest thing they’ve ever sold, but seriously, how can you resist the urge to provide me with such totally useful entertainment?
