If you have kids at home that utilize the Internet (or you are one of those people that has funky toy collections), then the Chatman Talking USB Emoticon is something to look into. It monitors your chat online, and will even let you know if you’re getting out of line.
The Chatman Talking USB Emoticon looks annoying enough to do the trick, too. It has 3 different programmable personalities with animated eyes, ears, and arms, 500 actions, and 25 moods to help get the point across. Cute, but not cute enough to survive a 10lb hammer if it says the wrong thing.
