On Wednesday, Bronx emcee, Ice Spice revealed that she teamed up with Living Product to create her own Chia Pet. She also shared a retro commercial that shows fans enjoying the growable item during the holidays. “Calling all Munchkins! The Ice Spice Chia Pet is here and ready to add some baddie energy to your home décor!” read a description on the product’s website.

“The superstar rapper’s iconic style is on full display as a terracotta home planter, complete with pink jacket and her signature diamond chain. Just spread the seeds, water, and watch her grow leafy green hair!” Fans can purchase their own Ice Spice Chia Pet for $34.99. In addition to the bust, customers will also receive three plantings worth of chia seeds and a plastic drip tray. Full plant growth—which will make up the star rapper’s signature curly hairstyle—is expected within two weeks from the start of application.

The statement released said that the player picked up the injury during the Super Eagles World Cup qualifying game against Lesotho in Uyo on Thursday, November 16.
