If robotic rabbits could multiply, we'd be overrun by \"kawaii\" (the Japanese word for \"cute\") by now.

Alright everyone, calm yourselves, we have some news: not a year and a couple of weeks since the day we first wrote about the Nabaztag, it's found a US distributor. You'll never guess who's picked it up, too. Ok, ok, we'll tell you, it's ThinkGeek. We know, you're probably hyperventilating right now
