EXCLUSIVE: Ever Want to Play Angry Birds in Real Life?

Any Angry Birds junkies in the house?

“Hi, my name is Peter, and I’ve spent countless hours playing Angry Birds, when I should have been working.”

I think we can all relate.

But rather than give you the guidance and help you need to break your Angry Birds addiction, I’m here to feed it. What if you didn’t just have to play Angry Birds on your iPad, Droid, iPhone, Browser, Computer, or other device?

What if you could play it live, in real life, in your living room? Flinging Angry Birds into houses of Pigs right from your couch? Or on the Kitchen Table? Flinging Angry Birds at the cat? Why not!

You all know K’NEX, right? You’ve been playing with them since you were a kid. Well, you’ll soon be able to build and play with characters from Angry Birds, with new licensed building toys by K’NEX®. Rovio, the creator of the globally successful Angry Birds franchise, and K’NEX, the only US Construction toy company focused on Building Worlds Kids Love™, are pleased to announce this new partnership to create a line of building toys inspired by Angry Birds.

The relationship combines the award-winning K’NEX building system with beloved Angry Birds characters, bringing them from the smartphone to the construction aisle for the first time. With more than 600 million downloads, Angry Birds is the #1 mobile game worldwide and appeals to male and female audiences across multiple age ranges.

Yes. This DOES mean that you’ll now be able to build every single level of Angry Birds in the real world, and shoot them down over and over again. It means missing family dinners, school and work deadlines, and important moments in your life, like your wedding, birthdays, and your child’s first steps.

This is ANGRY BIRDS IN REAL LIFE! I honestly don’t think there’s anything better.

While K’NEX will provide a sneak peek of the products at NY Toy Fair in February 2012, the K’NEX Angry Birds product line will not be widely available until Fall 2012. Building sets will include the most popular Angry Birds characters, buildable launchers and other recognizable elements from the game. I’ll be at Toy Fair, and will tweet first photos of the launch.

This is probably the most exciting thing I can recall since my parents bought me Tinker Toys when I was four, and I jammed one of the pieces up my nose.

Be honest in the comments below – Who’s rushing out to buy one as soon as they’re available?
