    <font color="green"> This is one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time... Harry Potter Broom Read the description of the toy then the consumer reviews. Apparantly it's very popular with the girls...</font color>

    LMAO!

    "Even my daughter's friends enjoy playing with this fun toy. I was surprised at how long they can just sit in her room and play with this magic broomstick!"

    and

    "They really seem to like the special effects it offers (the sound effects and vibrating). My oldest daughter (17) really likes it too! I reccomend this for all children."

    That was funny! My favorite post was the one that said "even my 17 year old daughter likes it." I almost did the ol' spit take right here on the 'puter. That was funny, or the one where the sister was fighting brother for it. ROTHFLMFAO... It's too much.

    the Nimbus 2000 features a grooved stick and handle for easy riding. Enhancing the excitement are the vibrating effects and magical swooping and whooshing sounds the broom makes when on

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Give kids some credit. What reason would they have to put it down. Except maybe for dead batteries. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Someone at Mattel made them some money with this one.

    i like

    "Well, I had my doubts of buying my daughter such a toy, but she seemed to like this movie a lot so..I got it. I wasn't too keen on letting her play with it when the batteries were in so I took them out. I mean come on it VIBRATES ..."

    and

    "I'm 32 and enjoy riding the broom as much as my 12 yr old and 7 year old. The vibrations, along with the swooshing sounds make for a very magical journey!" /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Well, not most kids anyway. Of course there are the few that would, but I doubt those few would have parents that would buy it.
    That is an interesting product. Has anyone seen the new lollipops everyone is raising a stink about? I believe they're called "Frooze" pops /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif They were talking about them on the radio the other day. Same thing, mixed reviews about opinions parents had, but the majority were apalled.

    well the only good thing about that is that i know if have a son, when he gets his first bj as a teenager, the girl should be properly educated...

    the bad thing is if i have a daughter, i certainly wouldnt want her educated at that age, cause kids will put 2 and 2 together and realize, hey this is just like when you...
