This morning Brett had a nice write-up about the toys and other promotional giveaways for the Cubs in 2014.  They vary from the pretty cool(Joe Tinker bobblehead) to the kinda strange (60's throwback Etch-A-Sketch)...I get that with the whole 100 year thing they are trying to have some "decade-themed" items...but here are just a few more ideas.



1980's Throwback Sammy Sosa Transformer- Sammy will transform from a speedy little skinny outfielder into a hulking figure ready for action! Bat also transforms, for cork-concealing fun! (note-the 2010's version's skin will lighten when you twist his arm, and he will turn into one of the vampires from True Blood)



Multi-Decade Cubs' Operation Game-


Be careful! Don't get buzzed by the multiple injury prone Cubs that come in different versions! Comes in Kerry Wood, Mark Prior, Angel Guzman, Bill Buckner, Rick Sutcliffe, Jose Guzman and new addition Kyuji Fujikawa.



1980's Stripping Marla Collins Doll


this undressable doll allows kids to relive the time in 80's Cubs' history when ball girl Marla Collins posed for Playboy(not that I ever saw those pictures)


1990's Joe Carter "as Announcer" Talking Bobblehead


celebrate Joe's 1 year behind the mic with this bobblehead which will randomly speak at times, and will awkwardly ask if you have talked to people who are dead


1980's Lee Elia Speak & Say



this classic children's toy has helped generations of kids learn...relive some of Lee's classic talks to the media...(*not recommended for children under 21)

How about a Leo Durocher Mr Potato Head?  You can put the lips anywhere you want them.   


Or a Ron Cey penguin bobble head?


Or a set of Leon Durham croquet wicket


A tin of Mitch Williams or Carlos Marmol antacid tablets?
