Candy and video games rock!

wonkazoid.jpgCandy and video games are what kids love in equal measure, although with the upcoming release of the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation 3, the latter might just pull ahead. The Willy Wonka Candy Factory, noted for its range of chocolates and toothache-inducing candy, has released the WonkaZoid. This is no ordinary electronic handheld game as it acts as a refillable candy dispenser as well. This means you get to munch on your favorite candy while having a great time blasting away on the game.

There are a total of four different WonkaZoids to collect – the Grape Strawberry Nerds will ship with the Nerds Hockey game with a bunch of annoying Oompa Loompas within, the Sour Nerds will jive with the Nerds Freeze Tag game, SweeTarts goes hand in hand with the SweeTarts Oompa Candy Flip game, and last but not least, the SweeTarts Shockers are partners with the super-challenging SweeTarts Shockers Shockball Showdown game.

In addition to these, you will also get a whole bunch of stickers for you to place all over the WonkaZoid for those who love personalizing their stuff. You can grab these WonkaZoids for anywhere between $4.99 to $6.99 and give them to your kids this holiday season, along with a whole bag of candy from last Halloween. They probably won’t appreciate such a cheap toy as their mates in the neighborhood receive shiny new PlayStation 3s and Wiis for Christmas, and hold this unforgivable grudge against you for the rest of your life. We all know how fragile children are, so its best to get them a proper console instead of LCD relics from the 80s.
