The most popular toy in Venezuela this year is the "Chavecito", an action figure showing Chavez with red beret.

The doll talks, too. It says:

quote:
Yo llegué aquí para hacer todo lo humanamente posible para ser útil al pueblo venezolano en su sueño, en su esperanza y en su empeño de ser libres e iguales

"I came here to do verything humanly possible to be useful to the Venezuelan people in their dreams, in their hopes, and in their attempt to be free and equal."

And it comes with a whole line of accessories including a tiny bulletproof vest for protection against CIA assassins.

This is going to make Christmas shopping very easy next year, at least for my revolutionary friends. I still won't know what to get Mom.

Hopefully there will be some allies (Che Guevara and Subcommander Marcos) and adversaries (Pat Robertson) for this set.
