Madoff’s Severed Head Stress Toy Hits Desktops

San Antonio, TX, July 22, 2009 –, a leading online retailer of desk toys, office decor, and unique gifts, today announced the latest addition to its gadget collection: the Bernie Madoff Stress Toy. This squishy severed head of the famous Ponzi schemer is 6-inches tall and made from durable vinyl with a polyfiber core that is designed to take a beating.

“It’s a stress toy made for today’s economy,” said President Rob Key. “Why bang your own head when you can slam Madoff’s head on your desk? There are enough reasons to do that already.”

This unique collectible stress reliever is available online at for $14.95 — a more affordable and versatile option to other Bernard L. Madoff stress reliever toys which include a $150 action figure and $50 bobblehead. Madoff, aka Prisoner No. 1727-054, is the first in a series of celebrity StressHeadz by offbeat toy designer Twisted Playground.

“You can stand Madoff’s head on your desk, mount him on your wall, or hang him from your rearview mirror,” said Key. “He’s a fun stress reliever for some, and an unusual decoration and collectible for others. For Madoff victims, this toy head is a safer alternative to the real thing.”
