This holiday season's Tickle Me Elmo could very well come out of the Namco Bandai camp ... if you have a penchant for incredibly frightening Tickle Me Elmos
. This little stuffed beast, known as the Tokunaga from Tales of the Abyss
, has a removable head (that it can exchange with four other characters from TEKKEN
, Tales of Symphonia
, and Katamari Damacy
). If you have a nephew or niece that you need to emotionally scar this Christmas, look no further than Namco Bandai.
