The Impact of Words by Joan Llewellyn

Throw your voice. Hurl an insult. Toss out an idea – how did we do any of that before the Chuckimal? These silly plush toys contain patented technology that plays a four second message that you’ve recorded – upon impact. They were sell outs and are exclusively available in England until next month. Chuckimals will invade Canada in April. The original model loses its memory after 30 minutes. Dave Cave of Dragon-I Toys, says that’s because they were afraid of the messages kids might leave on them while the toys were still in retail stores – no one wants to buy a foul mouthed parrot. What Makes You Happy got some advance models and found Chuckimals to be great icebreakers at parties. Kids of all ages bond immediately. No one did not smile. One imaginative corporate type wanted to prepare for every meeting by pre-programming 10 Chuckimals with messages of praise, insults and requests for coffee, and the conduct the meeting with his new, colourful and obedient staff lined up in front of him, ready to launch. Wait for the precedent-setting lawsuit over being fired by Chuckimal, or the first proposal of marriage delivered by a small airborne talking cow.
