You know how it is. Everyone HAS to have the latest thing. It like we never get past Jr high or high school.
If the cool thing is black jeans then EVERYONE gets black jeans.
I for one WILL NOT get angry birds just to spike the "I/you have to have that" mentality.
And I agree this will last about as long as Beanie Babies.
Remember that craziness?
