Talking Lion Phone on The Good Wife found

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Tonight’s episode of the The Good Wife “Wrongful Termination” had a cute bit around one of the characters talking on a speakerphone featuring a small plush lion toy which moved it’s mouth as the character on the speakerphone talked. This had to be the absolutely funniest bit of the week but completely misplaced product-wise is it is very difficult to find the actual toy. But it has been found!

The toy is actually a small iPod toy which dances and moves it mouth to music. Also available but not featured are a bear, panda, and frog toys. Price is a bit steep for most, but for some it will be a must have.

Do you go early and wait for store open and hope the lines are not too bad or that you are not featured in the news pictures of the many hordes that could be standing in line? Is it akin to a Star Wars convention? Or does one just pass the time waiting until the end of the day and amble in hoping that by then the lines are gone. Definitely the new iPhone is very interesting, and having a new gadget is always a weekend thrill. But how much effort does it really warrant. I have to say in my defense that I am not up this early biting at the bit until the store opens. But being that I’m already up due to commute necessity nags at the possibility of venturing down to the store for the 7 a.m. open. Not to mention since I’ve never been it might be a neat experience. Until the decision is made however, it’s just a another day in Appleland …
