I don't know where I've been, but I just discovered these tiny turtles called Walkie Bits. They're all the rage in Japan, where they are made by Takara (the toy manufacturer who also makes Blythe). I'm not usually overly gaga for robotic or responsive toys because they can be hard to figure out and have a tendancy to make unstoppable, annoying sounds but these guys are kyewt! They sing, they wiggle their butts, they walk and run in programmed code and they're itty bitty. I'm totally hitting ebay.
