Aquaman Beanz

This is an Aquaman-style "Beanz" toy, part of yet another toy craze burning holes in kids' pockets.

The Beanz are sold in packs, and you can't quite see which ones you're getting (that's how they get ya!). But F.O.A.M.er Christopher Chance was nice enough to send me a link to an eBay auction where someone was just selling the Aquaman one for around a buck. A week later, it was at Shrine Central.

Each Beanz measures just over 1", and is weighted at the bottom so it (almost) always stands up straight. I love easily storable Aqua-stuff...

Thanks Chris!

I've seen these in the store, and it's annoying how you have no idea what you're getting in the box. And apparently I'm getting old, because I can't see the fun in these at all... lol Are they like mini-Weebles?

Different. Guess I am too old to see the appeal in trying to collect them all, though. :)
