There's nothing cooler than being a TSA agent for Homeland Security and now the Spy Gear Security Scanner lets kids live out their dreams. It's a handheld security wand whose LED lights flash and an alarm goes off when it detects metal, just like the real thing!

Tipster and parent Bruce, who spotted the box at Toys R' Us while shopping for a birthday present for his son, wrote, "One word: "Unbelievable." We can now teach our kids early to be TSA thugs."

Based on a few user reviews, after you adjust the sensitivity knob, the thing actually can find metal.

But is it fun? Just look at the box! A cheerful child holds his shirt open for the scanning. His other hand is lofted for a high-five. If that doesn't spell fun, you might be a terrorist.

Rubber gloves sold separately.


From the same wonderful people who brought you the "Waterboard your Baby Brother!" playset! And just in time for Christmas, we have the "TSA colo-rectal exam playset" (rubber gloves not included) and the "Tragic Guantanamo 'suicide' playset".

NEW YORK, NY (AP) - An online action figure company has jumped on the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal bandwagon with a doll of the New York congressman in two versions: censored and uncensored.

HeroBuilders.com of Oxford, Conn., is offering the "standard" doll for $39.95 and the anatomically correct "for adults only" version for an extra $10.

Both are dressed in a gym shirt and shorts with a label that reads "Tweet This."

Weiner has acknowledged exchanging messages and photos that ranged from sexually suggestive to explicit with several women online.

Congress on Monday approved a two-week leave of absence for Weiner while he seeks treatment.

The action figure company also makes a plastic Sarah Palin, Barack and Michelle Obama and other talk-of-the-town figures. Obama on Monday said he'd resign if he were in Weiner's shoes.
