Bandai’s new toy lets you poke the inside of a digital screen

November 3, 2008


Bandai’s Asovision has a new toy coming out on November 15. It’s called the Tuttuki Bako (poking box), and like all of Asovision’s other neat toys—like Human Player, 5-Second Stadium, Pop-the-Edamame series, and Ants Life Studio—combines random human urges with neat little portable gadgets. This is just a box with a hole in the side that fits one skinny finger. When you stick your finger in the hole, a shadow of it shows up on the digital screen and you get to poke the snail hanging from a string. Pokey pokey poke. For some strange reason, it even feels like you’re touching something when you’re in there.

You can get it in red, green, or black for about $35.
