The Thing Electronic Hands and Feet


Shades of Sigourney Weaver strapping on that robot exoskeleton in one of the "Alien" movies.

Now come these appendage add-ons to make you more than you ever dreamed you could be, a kind of morphed-up "The Thing."

These new toys, "when attached to a child's own [appendages], emit electronic phrases and sounds that mimic, say, the thundering steps of the 500-pound pile of rocks himself."

They're to be unveiled officially this coming Sunday at the annual Toy Fair, where the industry gathers.

More on the toy world's move to helping you find your inner superhero in Olivia Barker's story in today's USA Today.
