    Devin Hester's kick return touchdown in Week 15 put him in the NFL record books as the best ever. His spot in NFL history is sealed until someone else comes along and breaks it.

    In his post game press conference Hester was very emotional thinking about his teammates who he insisted he shared the record.  So what did his special teams teammates get out of it?

    Big kid toys.

    "I went to the hobby shop and bought electric remote control cars, helicopters, and stuff" Hester said Wednesday.  "The big ones!"

    Hester estimated he bought 14 or 15 of the toys as a thank you to the guys who were on the field for the 14 return touchdowns.

    Hester now has 10 career punt return touchdowns and four kickoff return scores, not including the 108 yard missed field goal return touchdown and the opening kickoff of Super Bowl XLI for 92 yards and a score.

    The Bears return man is also making a return trip to the Pro Bowl after the 2010 season.

    His teammates have a few helicopters to get him there.
