Super Shusher

Finally... a toy for the rest of us....

Meet the librarian action figure. I mean, can you think of any better superhero power than greatest information seeker on Earth? This "toy" is AWESOME... well... maybe not awesome for your common action figure collector... but for a librarian, it's awesome.

According to the website selling this action figure (click on the picture to visit): You can have all the books, magazines, periodicals, journals, videos, and CD ROMs in the world, but without a librarian you'll be frustrated and overwhelmed before you can say "Dewey Decimal System." And although most librarians can't travel faster than a speeding bullet, or leap over tall buildings in a single bound, they can direct you to an article on the physics of speed, an instructional pamphlet on high jumping, and a book of photographs of the world's tallest buildings. Each 5" tall, hard plastic Librarian Action Figure is modeled after Nancy Pearl, a real-life librarian in the Seattle area. Press the button on her back and her arm will move with amazing "shushing action!" Comes with a tiny plastic book and a stack of random literature. The card features a brief history of libraries on the back as well as a realistic check-out card in a classic library sleeve along with two bookmarks and a Nancy Pearl trading card!

I hope you caught the "shushing action."..... what!?! THAT'S CRAZY AWESOME.
