Just when you thought Talking Tom couldn't get any more annoying, he comes to life. Well, sort of. He's not really alive, but he's real. Err, he's a physical thing... not just an app anymore. The company behind Talking Tom and Friends, Outfit7, has now released a line of Talking Friends "Superstars" that can be controlled by an app. I still can't believe this is a real thing.

There are currently toys available of Tom, Angela, and Ginger - each of which can be controlled by this app. The app is, of course, free, but the annoying Talking Friends Superstars will set you back $50 a piece. And yes, it's OK if you never ever let your kids know that these exist. We don't blame you one bit.
