Toy Fair 2011 – Teenagers want pictures of (Angry) Birds on their walls now

Gone are the innocent days of sports cars, high-cut swimsuits and Californian sunshine. The must-have adolescent bedroom poster is now Angry Birds

Back in the day it was a car – a Lamborghini Countach if you had any taste. On the bonnet of said car was a lady. She was about to go swimming, her apparel suggested. Or perhaps she was off to tan her hips. She had (with the licence of adolescent imagination) a wicked glint in her eye.

Fast-forward (or skip track... whatever) to the present day and it turns out there’s a market for Angry Birds posters. Lara Croft was one thing, but the irate avians from Rovio’s App Store chart-topping frog murdering game is a bit much, isn’t it?

Still, here they are, propping up a corner of Toy Fair. And soon, no doubt, they’ll be on sale at Athena. Or wherever the kids get their poster kicks these days.
