fun stuf electro genic arm

I am totally in love with this ad for the Fun Stuf Electro Genic Arm, obviously a toy made to cash in on the popularity of Steve Austin, it’s just piece of plastic with a circuit sticker on it that a child uses to simulate that they’re bionic That is what’s so incredibly cool about this toy, I can imagine spending hours with this thing pretending to be a cyborg until I broke it and well, moved on to the next thing.(Note the mention of “He” in this ad, guess Funstuf never heard of the Bionic Woman, back to your easy bake ovens girls, Funstuf doesn’t want your money. )

    Hey that thing even has a sight with cross hairs so you can aim your fist and shoot it like a Shogan Warrior!

    I don’t know about this toy – the last thing a kid needs as they approach puberty is a bionic forearm.
