The International Toy Fair is happening in New York this week, and we were surprised to see that AMC's The Walking Dead has become the latest TV show to get action figures, after only six episodes. While zombie toys are always a good thing, we can't help but be disappointed that the lackluster horror series got toys, when some of our favorite current TV shows didn't. Here are some toy lines we wish they'd announced instead.
Pretty Little Liars PDA
Not just any personal data device -- this one allows you to text and e-mail your frenemies in total anonymity, with only a single letter (of your choosing) to identify you. Plus, it allows you to access their e-mail accounts and voice mail, as well, to give you unfettered access to every detail of their lives! Perfect for "pretend" blackmail!
Glee "Sue Sez It" Megaphone
Everything that you speak through this megaphone comes out in the voice of the inimitable Sue Sylvester, with just the right amount of boredom and derision added to every word. And instead of a siren button, there's a button that unleashes a wail of pure Jane Lynchian rage, perfect for pretending that you've just had your budget slashed.
Fringe "Don't Get Caught in the Amber!" Game
As your game pieces make their way around the board, they move back and forth between our reality and the mirror universe. But don't stay in the mirror 'verse too long, or your game piece will get frozen in impermeable amber for the remainder of gameplay! First player to find all of the pieces of the doomsday device wins.
Off the Map Adventure Set
Although it's a still a new show, we think kids would go crazy for a utility belt with a compass, stethoscope, tongue depressors, snake bite kit, gauze, scalpel, tourniquet, syringe, morphine, coconuts and a satellite phone for calling in emergency helicopter extractions. Also, a personalized Narcotics Anonymous membership card and a photo of your comatose wife.
Jersey Shore Hot Tub Toys
There's more than one way to have fun in a hot tub -- this set comes with Beer Goggles, water-squirting Pickle Pistols, 100 water balloon Grenades (decorated with pictures of unattractive women), and a pair of long-range Duckie-Talkies for letting your teammates know when you need someone to take care of a landmine for you.
