FAIRFAX, Va., Nov. 10, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today marks the release of ThinkGeek's My First Bacon exclusive plush toy that makes meat your child's favorite toy. Regardless of their current diet, the My First Bacon plush toy is the perfect cute and cuddly toy that teaches children one of life's important lessons - You've got a friend in meat!     

Never has a cured piece of sentient meat ever been so huggable! This plush bacon has big adorable eyes, a mechanical animated mouth and a mind of his own. When you squeeze My First Bacon, he says "I'm Bacon!" My First Bacon features pork-like red velveteen and super soft white fleece to mimic the all too delicious fat.  

"American carnivores have a long standing love affair with bacon and we've taken it one step further bringing that tasty meat off their plate and into their arms," said Senior Merchandiser Ty Liotta.

My First Bacon is the latest in a long line of ThinkGeek April   Fools ' products brought to life by fan requests. Brace yourself for more April Fools' product releases later this month.

Recommended for children ages 3+, My First Bacon requires three AA batteries (not included) and measures 19" tall by 7" wide.

My First Bacon is available now on ThinkGeek.com for $19.99. For more information, contact PR representative Jessica Darrican at Jessica@maxborgesagency.com or 305-576-1171 x.16.
