Iran taunts with toys

While the Iranian government continues to refuse to return the US drone that crashed (or was shot down, depending who you listen to) in Iran in December, the nation is offering an alternative: a toy replica of the drone. Iranian Radio Payam reported on Tuesday that a toy version of the drone is being produced and sold in Iran. The company is reportedly sending the White House one of the toys in response to President Obama’s formal request for the original downed drone.

For the rest of us, the toy, which is one-eightieth of the size of the real drone, will cost about $4. But there’s a chance you can get a free one, too- the Tehran Bureau Chief for the Washington Post, Thomas Erdbrink, tweeted that he will be giving away 10 on Wednesday.

Trend, a news website from Azerbaijan, reported that the RQ-170 drone replicas will be inscribed with “We will trample the U.S.”
