This holiday season we’ll be seeing quite a number of products based on popular smartphone apps, such as “Angry Birds,” as well as some based on Internet sensations like the “Annoying Orange” web series.
Created by Dane Boedigheimer, the “Annoying Orange” is a comedy series that features a variety of talking fruits and vegetables, and boasts more than 800 million views on You Tube.
Plush toys, clip-ons, and collectible figures in the product line are being created by toymaker The Bridge Direct, which had a huge hit last year with its exclusive Justin Bieber dolls.
