R.I.P. Steve Irwin

Today marks a year to the day that the extremely popular Steve Irwin passed away.
I'm sure there will be lots and lots of news stories and tributes around the web today, so there's not much I could say that isn't being said a million times over elsewhere. Except to say that me and my family were big fans. And were very sad when we heard the news of his passing a year ago.

Although September 4th is the anniversary of Steve's passing, there are plans to make Thursday, November 15th a special Steve Irwin Day to celebrate his life. When you can show your support by wearing khaki for the day, organise a backyard camp-out or visit Australia Zoo.

And so, this being Weird Wonderful Web I've tracked you down something weird and wonderful but also Steve Irwin related.

While browsing around at Steve Irwin stuff I came across this weirdly wonderful toy being shown on Toymania.com's Raving Toy Maniac magazine.
It's a 14" plush "caricature-style" talking Steve Irwin doll. You give his tummy a squeeze and he says "one of 12 signature Croc Hunter phrases such as "She's a beauty!", or "Crocs Rule"!.
Not too sure where you can get one of these. I couldn't find a site for N2 Toys (the makers of this range) but I've seen similar items for sale on Ebay and at Amazon but they're not quite the same.
So if you really, really want/need one of these I'll just have to wish you happy (croc) hunting.
