Stupid Toy Tuesday- spinning projectiles of doom

This weekend we went to the circus as a family.  It was full of the circus goodness, I had come to expect, animals, clowns, people with no spines or fear doing things that will be most likely tried at home and end in a trip to the hospital.

But what I knew, as SOON as my hubby emailed me about the tickets, we would be coming home with this overpriced piece of crap that lights up.  I was right.


BEHOLD!!! It's a pink holder, and it spins around and it has little dohicky that light up.  Oh and it's hard to see but there is a white tiger at the top.

Yep.

Drumroll for the cost...$22.
The people behind us make this offer to their child, "you can buy the light up thing or you can go to college, which ever one you want." 
It's a good offer and tells you alot about the kid.

But of course that's not all, she got cotton candy that came with a stupid hat for $10 and a program for $20.  PLUS another $10 for food.
Grumble.

But here's the thing, my daughter has smacked herself in the face so many times, she flinches when she plays with it.


Yep. Nothing says fun like pulling a piece of plastic out of your eye and becoming traumatized by lights.
Ringing Bros, I'll be sending you the therapy bill for that one.

  2. That toy looks extremely dangerous. Maybe it should've come with safety goggles?
