Remember how much it blew our minds when stuffed animals could all of a sudden talk? I think the first was the Teddy Ruxpin toy in which you had to install a tape into his back.
The products got better and better over the years until they capped out with Real Talking Bubba who could actually react to what you did with him.
I can only assume (based on his accent) Bubba was a racist and could never catch on in the “mainstream” toy world. Somewhere in China (where I assume these toys were made) there is some freaky ass talking dumpster asking people to “stand me on my head please”. How freaky would that be?
