I still remember Halfbrick when they were just a tiny little Aussie studio with an obscure game about skeletons. Nowadays, these guys are mobile powerhouses, with Fruit Ninja being one of the most recognized games on the market. So recognized, in fact, that they've started making toys!
You can buy the game's Sensei for $15.99 or a Watermelon for $14.99. The Watermelon has been given little eyes to make him look cute, and has two halves stuck together with Velcro.
Perhaps I'm alone, but I actually really like that Watermelon and I may have to pick him up, if only to support the Halfbrick chaps. It'll be available sometime in January, and Sensei can be bought right now.
