Toy Fair 2019 – NECA – Chia Pet

Not going to lie. Seeing Chia Pet and The Clapper logos in NECA booths makes me do a doubletake.  I still think of kitschy holiday commercials from the 80’s. In fact, I used to say it wasn’t Christmastime unless I saw a commercial for the Clapper.

Well, Chia Pets have grown up. On display were a variety of versions including Bob Ross, The Golden Girls, Groot, Deadpool, and Poop.

Wait.  Did I say Chia Pets have grown up?  Clearly I was mistaken.
