I'll take ten, please
You could also title this post "the bargain of a lifetime" or "the check is in the mail", because this is the very definition of fantastic product at a bargain-price. Some of you may have seen this item already, but if not, prepare to crack open your piggy banks.
While purusing The Sharper Image a couple of months ago for a state-of-the-art air purifier (and matching Kleenex boxes for my feet), this item was stumbled upon. I was definitely intrigued, but forgot about it for some reason. But now it's on sale, which means that you can keep up with the Tarzans' and get your very own functioning, life-size animatronic chimpanzee head for just $129.95. No, that's not a misprint. We live in a wondrous era wherein a robotic chimpanzee head can be had for just $129.95. That's way cheaper than an ipod, and it hoots.
It comes with a remote, infrared sensors in its "soulful eyes" to track movement and trigger a response, touch sensors (so I don't recommend trying to kiss it) and four distinctive emotional moods including "Curious," "Happy," "Fearful" and "Feisty." So if you ever wanted a chimp in your home but didn't want to deal with the whole biting the face / ripping off your nutsack thing, this is the item for you.
To order yours, click here. At the very least go and watch the video.
