Have you ever had a toy that made your kids go “Awwww” while you went “Aaaaagh?!” Al Roker (father of three) feels your pain.
Roker previewed some of the hot toys from this week’s Toy Fair, where manufacturers show off the games and toys they hope will be trendy this year. From Legos to jumbo Bananagrams, all was going well -- until Al met a break-dancing Mickey Mouse, whose upper body rotates 360 degrees while his legs stay stationary.
“Oh that’s freaky,” Al exclaimed. “That’s like 'The Exorcist' meets Mickey!”
You never know when your child is going to fall in love with a freaky toy, whether it’s a stuffed clown with a psychopathic grin or, in my case, an innocent-looking fire engine that would not stop wailing, even when when we took the battery out!
As Al said at the end of the TODAY segment, “Thanks so much for FREAKING ME OUT!”
