QUICK TAKES

Steve Irwin toys are set to launch

January 23, 2007|From the Associated Press

A talking "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin action figure that has his recorded voice reciting his signature phrase, "Crikey!," will go on sale nationwide next month.

With the blessing of his widow, the 39-piece Steve Irwin Wildlife Adventure Series as well as plush toys and educational items will launch at the 2007 International Toy Fair in New York, toy maker K&M International said.

K&M was ready to stop the international launch after Irwin died Sept. 4 from a poisonous stingray barb piercing his chest, but Terri Irwin wanted to go ahead, said G.B. Pillai, K&M president.
