Angry Birds may have been way more popular than originally thought
Smell that? It's the smell of pie. Angry Birds pie. And everybody wants a piece. Evidently these dang birds are so stupid popular that now other manufacturers of plushes caught a whiff of the popularity and have begun to release their own take on the pig-killing fling-happy fowls.
Happy Birds (found at Costco), a set of four "dog toy" plushes in a box, come with three birds that share similar colors to the actual Angry Birds . . . and a purple pig.
KooKoo Birds, found at Wal-Mart, share many design similarities to the Angry Birds. Also, the timing of such a stupid plush on the cusp of the uber-popularity of the video game cannot be overlooked. Another pic of the bird after the break.
