ThinkGeek My First Bacon Toy and Creepy Spider RC Toy Surfaces

Christmas time is perfect for remote controlled toys, but if the same old cars and trucks are too mainstream for you, the cool Anti-Gravity Web Runner may be exactly what you are looking for. The thing looks like a spider, albeit a massive spider, and it can actually crawl on your walls.

Really, it's not so much crawl as it is roll around on your walls. The spider is controllable from a full function wireless remote and can move in any direction you want it to. The walls do have to be smooth though, which is a bummer. I only hope that considering 99% of all walls have some texture to them moderately smooth walls will work with the thing.

The legs are articulated and the eyes glow red. I could have scared some candy out of the kids on Halloween with this thing. You can pick one up at Target, Amazon , RadioShack and other locations for $39.99. It's recommended for kids eight and up, but I think even little ones will get a kick out of this thing.

If you are a fan of ThinkGeek, plush toys that are weird, and bacon, we have a cool new gift for you. The thing surface this week from ThinkGeek and it's a plush strip of bacon that was first seen in one of ThinkGeek's legendary April Fools pranks that I have a very strong love/hate relationship with. They tend to fool geeky writer types each year with these things.

The My First Bacon toy is covered in red velveteen and white fleece to look like real bacon. When you squeeze the thing it shouts, "I'm Bacon!" which is cool and a little disturbing. It reminds me of that episode of Regular Show where the hotdogs revolted. The bacon toy gets its power from three AA batteries that aren’t included and measures in at 19" tall and 7" wide. You can pick one up right now for $19.99.
