The world's first Angry Birds store

The world's first Angry Birds store
Angry Birds has everything both consumers and game creators want to see in a game. It has become so wildly popular that in September, Rovio general manger, Andrew Stalkbow, announced the game had been downloaded over 350 million times. The Angry Birds craze has even left the screen and translated into real world applications, everything from Angry Birds birthday cakes to a theme park in China.

Well, now you can get your Angry Birds merchandise fix at the official store in Helsinki, Finland. The world’s first Angry Birds store opened its doors for the first time today and Rovio has already posted a few pictures on its Facebook page.

From the looks of things, there is no shortage of stuffed things. While it is not clear in the pictures, it is probably safe to assume it will also be selling the various items available in the shop on Rovio’s website, such as Bad Piggles’ Egg Recipes, school kits, and backpacks. In one of the pictures, there is even a giant slingshot that consumers can sit in and snap a picture.

Time is the only thing that can really tell if an Angry Birds themed retail store is sustainable, but we have to ask, does this fall under ‘too much is never enough’ or ‘too much of a good thing’?

to think that the guys that created Angry Birds are going to look back one day be able to say that they were able to retire off making apps

I saw they're selling the stuffed Angry Birds at Walmart. My son ended up getting 2 of them as he loves the game.

I think this game is over-rated. NOT that good. why does a stupid app with no real characters gets dumb merchandise as this. just a game. not a good one, either.

I'm an adult and I love angry birds, me and my son play all the time. He wants his room done in angry birds so i hope they come out with all the things that go along with decorating his room. It would be nice if they made comforters and lamps or light switch covers. well i just hope they boom!!!
