For each day of advent (or up until the 20th) we will be looking at the club shop of each Premier League club to pick out the strangest or oddest gift.
Today is the turn of Arsenal, and we have opted for the Arsenal Talking Tom Toy. This is a real version of the Talking Cat iPhone app, and costs a considerable £25.
Dressed in an Arsenal home kit, the cat apparently reacts with noises to being stroked, squeezed or poked. More weirdly it also mimics exactly what you say to it. All together now: “I might be a pussy but I’m still harder than Arshavin.”
A very strange start.
