Talk about timing. Since your chances of getting a Wii or a PS3 within the next week may be perilously slim unless you’re willing to body-slam desperate soccer moms and punt your way through crowds of children (or, if you live in my neighborhood, shiver quietly next to some very scary, very prepared eBay profiteers), you may be looking for something to distract you from the pain of not being one of the cool kids.
This is not it.
Keep holding out for that golden ticket, Veruca. Augustus Gloop and I are gonna get our fingers sticky with the highly suspect WonkaZoid, a cheap-o plastic mess that the Willy Wonka Candy Factory company calls the “ultimate combination of the two things tweens love most, candy and video games.” Oh boy. It plays crappy games and poops out candy! Four varieties of WonkaZoid come for under $10: an Oopma Loompa hockey game that shells out grape strawberry NERDS; a freeze tag game with sour NERDS; the SweeTarts Oompa Candy Flip starring, yes, SweeTarts; and something hideous-sounding called the SweeTarts Oompa Candy Flip game. Also, they come with stickers.
I’m pretty sure I qualify as a sour nerd.
