[ # ] Too soon for a Steve Irwin doll?
December 26th, 2006 under Steve Irwin


Add Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin to the pantheon of adventure heroes immortalized as action figures. In honor of the late Irwin’s dedication to nature conservation and education and his love of animals, Wild Republic, the nature brand of K&M International, has teamed up with the Irwin family and the Australia Zoo to bring a new line of toys to the USA. Among the line’s 39 products: an Irwin figure ($22) that spouts Steve’s trademark phrases — "Crikey!" among them, no doubt — play sets and plush toys. They will be unveiled at the International Toy Fair Feb. 11-14 in New York. Bindi Irwin, 8, was filming a new series for the Discovery Channel, co-starring her father, at the time of his death. Irwin, 44, died Sept. 4 in Port Douglas, Queensland, after a stingray pierced his heart. "We all know that Daddy had an important job. He was working to change the world so everyone would love wildlife like he did," Bindi Irwin said in a statement. "Now it’s our turn to help him."

I don’t maybe it is just me, but that just seems so wrong. Seriously, did they have to include the crocodile?
