By AP reporter Jonathan OostingAssociated PressThe word “bumblebees” has become synonymous with the popular toy that makes birds, but some people are still trying to create their own.
A new toy from bird toys company Markitos says its new BumbleBee Bird Beads will let you make your own Bumblebee toy from scratch.
It uses a special ink to create a bumblebee-shaped bead that is the size of a pencil eraser and a piece of string attached to the end.
The toy also comes with a plastic frame that attaches to a wire.
You can use your own glue to attach it to the wire.
Markitos will be showing the product at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
The company is also showing a series of bird toys that feature a BumbleBeetles head and wings.
MarkItos is developing Bumblebeets to entertain pets and their owners, with an eye toward selling them as household items.
