I just can’t believe that the Angry Birds phenomenon is still going strong. After so many games and so many downloads, you would think that people would become bored with it. Apparently not. And the merchandise is still going strong as well.
People are still playing the games and still buying the gear in amazing numbers. For some reason. And the toys are making a ton of money for Rovio as you might expect. Commonwealth Toy & Novelty Co.’s vice president, Lisa Shamus, revealed that they are expected to double the sales of Angry Birds related merchandise.
She estimates that they might be able to make $400 million in 2012. That’s crazy. The next game should be called happy millionaires. You could be a bird throwing toys at the masses and earn money.
