I am trying to find happy, fun links to brighten your afternoons until we get to the Christmas holidays. Today’s find: 13 presents you should not give to your kids!
A sample of a few:
Kid-size vuvuzelas – The most annoying instrument ever! Ruined my summer listening to them while watching the World Cup. You will never be invited to my house again if you give one to my children.
TSA check point action figures! Just what every child wants to re-enact being felt up by TSA agents. They’ll be using them at psychologist offices for years to come.
A dog that lets you practice scooping his poop. If any child wants to practice this for real I have a side yard that can use some attention.
Along the cleaning lines – a sweep and dust bin. I don’t think this is a bad present. I’m giving water bottles. Is that bad?
A roadkill stuffed animal with eyes popped out and gut spilling from its stomach. Truly a sick gift. Who would buy this?
What do you think of their suggestions for what not to buy kids? What are some of the worst presents you ever received as a kid? What are some of the worst you have given your kids?
