Well, what do you know? The wacky dancing tube, AKA inflatable tube guy, you see decorating events or used car lots is available for homes too. I am not even kidding. Thankfully, though, this home version is not the same size as those you see lining the entrance of building of some business’ closing down sale. It is much smaller, or should I say, it is desktop kind of small.

Appropriately called Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy, this miniaturized version behaves like its big brother, i.e. it just ‘dances’ extremely randomly and waving its pair of arms frantically as if it is being chased by Hockey mask-wearing Jason Voorhees. Except it is not. The smiley ‘face’ says it isn’t the target of a psychopath. That’s logic. Who the hell smile like that when he/she is being hunted by a maniac? No one. Then again its the Wacky Waving dude here…

Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy with Book

Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy may be a miniature version, but it is not quite tiny; at 18 inches (nearly 46 centimeters) tall, it towers over most stuff on your desk. In other words, like its larger counterpart, is made to draw attention. Perfect for any attention-getter who prefers to relegate the attention-getting task to someone else, or in this case, something else.

It is powered by a 9V battery, so there’s no cord snaking across the desk and that’s a good thing. But it also can be powered by a specific AC adapter (not included), if don’t mind the sight of cable. Though it may not be as economical and not exactly environmentally-friendly, if you know what I mean. It would be awesome if it has onboard rechargeable battery. Of course, you can use your own rechargeable battery, but the lack of onboard charging can be a pain. Just saying…

It is described as first of its kind and as far as we know, it indeed is. Anywho, Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy is actually part of a publication, a book by Conor Riordan published by Running Press (Running Press, ISBN-13: 978-0762462872). It comes with a 32-page mini book (it is REALLY mini!), with illustration by Gemma Correll, that explores the origins of this often took for granted modern day icon. You can find Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Firebox as well as Walmart and sells for $11.66-13.99, depending on retailers.
