And so the fun begins…:D
And then he went to test all the alarm clocks in Radio Shack!
including an exclusive model that goes GRAAAAAAPE!
You mean the ones where you can record your own alarm? Keep him away from those.
There are alarm clocks where you can record your own alarm?!?
Just wait until he gets to the cellphones.
I know your pain, Peanut. I know your pain.
I have the same problem, but with the free samples…..
*sniff* they are growing so fast (-_-)
but for the love of Molly Weasley they better not break my heart D:<
i love the touch everything philosophy of this comic
I’d bring him to the mall JUST to see him do that face in panel 1
The face of a boy presented with opportunity, who has the will to take it.
I’d take him for that walk, seen his foot in panel 3. He must be marching!?!
Unfortunately, getting to see the panel one face necessitates seeing the panel 4 face.
I would too
It’s like saying “There is this big red button right here but I won’t tell you what it does. Now don’t touch it and I’ll be back in an hour.” I mean even I would take that opportunity.
I tested this theory.
In Second Life I created a button like that. It was labelled “Don’t Touch”. If you touched it it asked if you really wanted to. Then if you said yes, it launched you two billion meters into the air. That’s billion with a B. It might have been even higher, but that was the limit on my altimeter. It completely wrecked your avatar, you had to log out and log in again to set it straight.
I set it out for a few days, and after I took it down people complained about it being missing.
I know someone else who has this problem.
*Cuff* me…. I try out ‘try me’ on electronic tooth brush…
Haha, those try me buttons are the best part though!!
The only reason Toys R us Is worth going to.
oh poor peanut looks so dejected.
He touched heaven, and was rejected…
lol Yep they are going to be bored and keep getting kicked out of places. This shall be fun.
we still haven’t seen Grape testing the cat toys section…
Wait til she gets to the cat nip samples.
*grape standing on the top of a scratchpost, roaring like Kong and clawing at suspended rubber mice*
and Grape acting weirdly from the cat-nip towards everyone, offending people, and getting kicked out before the midnight release of Pridelands 2, then a mass-murder spree begins the next day O_O
I use to do that! childhood memories. I still try out. ‘Try me’ on electronic toothbrush.
Also, alt-text: “¡Guau guau! ‘Huh, I guess that one was set to spanish’”
“The cow goes… sha-ZOOOOoooOOoooo.”
“It most certainly does not!”
The alt text made my day
“The elephant goes ‘FWAMP’”
Is it me or Peanut has long legs to put it up that high and that far? O-o
I think he’s just walking like that because he’s annoyed. o 3o
Looked at the same for a while, though. >u<
His foot made a cameo appearance.
That almost happen to me once and it was GREAT. XD
you are so right Peanut.
panel 1: PRICELESS FACE
is the title some sort of gag at pokemon?
My thoughts exact! xD
I still have that old Meowth toy that speaks in chinese! XD
shweet! * give you high five*
My friend is Japanese and I pressed the button for him to hear it and he was like “nope, definitely not japanese” lol
Push the buttons and make ALL THE NOISES!!!!
Hasnt that happen’d to everyone?
Reminds of the time my friends and I got kicked out of a Walmart for test firing the Nerf guns. True, the test escalated into a war, but we needed to make sure they were any good!
So-so. We ended up getting paintball guns, but at the same time we also hit several civilians during the fire fight; something I would say is a rousing success in its own way : P
Don’t tell me they actually have dubstep on the toys nowadays.
You beat me to it…
…I was just about to mention that. XD
“WUB WUB WUB WUB WUB”
Although, it might be the resonance of large cymbals, but we all know cymbals go “tish.”
Lol, never would have caught that if you hadn’t mentioned. <3 Dubstep, I listen to it everyday.
Sweet Helic—*looks down the isle* Is that Go over there I see? *squee* I must buy that to add to my collection! xD
heh, they called him ‘Sir’.
Otherwise a riot would have ensued in the furry community! o.o
He was mentally spelling it with a “C”.
And he would be technically correct!
lol Ages 10 and down!
I know, right?
OK, WHO HIT THE DUBSTEP BUTTON?!
His paw looks so out of place in the last panel, lol. I mean he really stretches far and up just for a normal step, it’s weird.
I think he’s kicking up his foot in sour mood.
Peanut is good at moping
I see a Go board. Go is awesome.
Yes! I’m not the only one who think the same! xD *gives you high five*
My brother and I once triggered a shelf full of Tickle me Elmos then skedadled before the epic shaking began to rattle them off the shelf. Days later I witnessed someone elce play the same prank, this time I got to view the results. Hilarious
Wait, there’s a toy with a dubstep button? WANT
get in line!
*third in line*
I think that’s supposed to be the sound of the helicopter (see previous panel)
sweet sound for Sweet Helicopter
Helicopters go “WUP WUP WUP WUP WUP” not “WUB WUB WUB WUB WUB”.
It makes that sound because it loves you!
The alt text just killed me. En serio que me mató XD
Quick! CPR! 20 charge! ¡Despejen!
*El desfibrilador no incluye baterias*
thats rather inconvenient…. O_O
Me and my friends went into a store before and got kicked out…we were using those scooters where you make the sparks on the back. They thought we would start a fire.
I know, right?! What’s up with that?
Story of my life…
His feet are so adorable! C:
And then suddenly, he finds a Spot the Superdog toy, complete with “PUNCH” effects.
DeLuxe box comes with Stripe (who is NOT a cat) and a random member of the Collarless Gang
Nope. He goes home and hides in a corner. Depressed that his own ideas aren’t original to him; or in constant fear that someone is copying his notes.
SWEET helicopter?? *Hi-fives the Rick!*
if i could i would freeze time just to press every try me button in the mall just to listen to the chaos and confusion
“Wub Wub Wub Wub?” Is there a Skrillix doll?
Who’s done what I did as a kid and pressed the try-me buttons on two toys at the same time?
Try Me in stereo! 8DDD
Even when I know it’s coming, I still startle when I push a toy’s button and a loud obnoxious noise comes out of it.
And then I’ll try to push the button to stop it. …and it starts over.
I do that all the time. I just cant stop myself but once the toy starts going off im like please be quiet someone will hear……please..augh shut it off!
That is so true, Peanut!
I like how peanut looks in the last panel, stomping away
What’s fun is Halloween or Christmas were half the toys are voice or motion activated already so all you have to do is walk down the aisle a few times to drive the employees insane. It’s still better than having to work in the electronics department with the 2 minute “Walmart Channel” loop.
At least they seemed reasonably polite about it. When I was very young I got chewed out by a bookstore employee for “if you’re not going to buy it then put it back”. This was back in the days of Waldenbooks and B. Dalton when you did not go in to buy coffee and read all afternoon. My mom sure let them have it though!
Im just waiting for the movie theater scene where our dynamic duo may or not be cuddling….
*gets ready crash cart for UBERCUTENESS overload*
I believe that Grape is sympathizing with him, and that her expression says ‘how scandalous!’
What I wanna know is why a Go board game has one of those “Try me!” buttons.
click click click click click Click Click CLICK CLICK ALL RIGHT ALREADY!
Toys with dubstep sound?! DON’T TELL ME THE NEW CLAPTRAP DOLLS ARE OUT ALREADY!
Used to do that myself. Thankfully, there was never an attendant.
Hah! What a great strip. I half expected peanut to find a grape cat plushy and buy it. Then I saw the next panel and saw he got kicked out. I mean, would you just look at him? He looks so “wtf” about the whole situation in that last panel. In the first panel, his face really is priceless though.
Once the shopkeep heard the singing Justin Bieber doll for the 5000th time, he just lost it…
Somehow I doubt Peanut would ever *sniff* that stuff, least touch it
They have dubstep toys?! WUBWUBWUB
heh. I like this comic. I do the same thing everytime I’m in a toy store. I try to get them all going before the first one stops.
Is “Dorbs” even a real word?
I think it’s some sort of abbreviation for ‘adorables’
1. Take Peanut to any toy store
2. Locate the aisle with the greatest number of toys that have a “try me” button on them
3. Escort Peanut to said aisle
AW, peanut just wanted to play with the toy, *goes off screen* oh wow, uh…. that is alot of noise * goes deaf *
I agree with peanut what Is the point
i so want a sweet helicopter! also, i don’t see why he couldn’t click them x3
Awww, loox so adorable in the first slide! :#3
Army Dudes, Sweet Helicopter (really flies!), Puppy ‘Dorbs, Kitty ‘Dorbs, Super Race Cars (ages 10 and down). . . Electronic Go?
Of all the board games to which they could add an electronic component. . . .
Electronic Go’s fine print seems to say “How does this even work”. Yep, I’m convinced it’s Electronic Go.
This is Rick’s nerdiest board game reference since Settlers of Catan appeared in the comic where Peanut had nothing to do.
“Mommy, I want the Dubstep toy!”
