    35 bucks? A plain 5 gig USB drive is about $5.

    In true maker spirit, you could just hit the local toy store, buy a cheap plastic squid and make one yourself for much less.

      This is in fact a squid from a toy store – I have the exact same one – with part of it sawed off.

      It was fairly expensive, something like $15 (if not more), which contributes to the high price of this.

      edit: I looked at the other photos on their site, and realized it’s not the same one (mine’s better) and theirs probably didn’t cost more than a dollar or two.

    In my experience, you buy any but the most trusted brands in thumb drives and you get burned.
