The best Action Figures you can buy today

We all have our favorite action figures from childhood — my brothers recently passed their Star Wars collection on to my eager and grateful son, and my husband had Spiderman and Madelman (“you know, the Spanish GI Joe?” ) figures.

‘Yes we can’ own a Chia Obama

obamachia2

You know you’re a popular president when they’ve turned you into a Chia Pet!  Each Chia Obama comes in either a ‘happy’ (above) or  ‘determined’ (below) pose, has Obama’s trademark ‘Yes We Can’ written on the side, and most importantly… sprouts green Chia hair.  Kinda creepy but definitely kitschy!  I personally wouldn’t want this as a present, but for those who do, just click on the photo below to go directly to the Chia Pet site.  This would make a great wedding giveaway…or maybe not.
