I know I’ve already written about baby!Dirk Gently having emotions about his Sea Monkeys, but can you imagine him with the following toys from the 1990s?

  • Tamagotchi (he never works out that you have to push the button twice to actually feed it, as a result it keeps starving to death and his parents end up having to “accidentally” run over it with the family van in order to stop the ongoing cycle of guilt)
  • Furby (his parents think that getting him a fake pet will stop him from finding all of the lost cats in a 10-mile radius but it only makes it worse because now he’s on a mission to get his new friend yet more friends)
  • Polly Pocket (you would not believe how many cases he needs to solve for these dolls)
  • Beanie Babies (years later, he’ll wonder why the universe manages to provide multiple corpses and yet never provided him with any of the particularly rare and valuable collectables)
  • Easy Bake Oven (the only and only time he’s ever been a good cook)
  • Tickle-Me-Elmo (he unintentionally steps on it when he gets up for a drink at 2am and it starts cackling and vibrating; he throws it in the closet and it’s only after the CIA takes him away that he begins to think that maybe, just maybe, his house wasn’t actually haunted)
