Kiss Takes On Beanie Babies

Even after turning up on Christmas ornaments, golf balls, credit cards, and a seemingly endless parade of merchandise, the guys in Kiss are still finding new things to put their faces on.

The glam metal icons will take on the Beanie Babies with their own line of bean bag dolls, which fans can order through David Snowden Promotions (at www.davidsnowden.com). Individually, the four dolls are going for $13, but die-hards can order all four in a numbered limited edition set that comes complete with a "Psycho Circus" wagon for $100.

The collectibles recently made a brief debut on the Home Shopping Netowrk, where they will turn up once again on October 29. In the meantime, Snowden's website is currently taking orders for the dolls, and plans to ship them in late November. Visitors to Snowden's website will also find an extensive collection of all things Kiss, including money clips, baseballs, telephones, coasters,

ties, underwear, and even bottles of wine bearing the band's likeness.

Fans will no doubt find a lot more Kiss gear when the band hits the road at the end of the month. The band has only announced a handful of dates for the tour, which kicks off with a live Halloween concert special from Los Angeles' Dodgers Stadium carried on Fox.

Tickets for the following dates go on sale this weekend:

  • 11/12 - Boston, MA @ Fleet Center
  • 11/22 - East Rutherford, NJ @ Meadowlands
  • 11/23 - New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden
  • 11/27 - Uniondale, NY @ Nassau Coliseum
