There are half a dozen to be collected, and best of all is you don’t have to throw away these cool candy cases (let’s call a spade a spade, shall we?) once you’re done with them. Instead, they’d make pretty interesting desktop toys to play with during those long Monday afternoons at …

You can pick up the Towelie Talking …
