13 Questions About this Toy
Friend Irish sent me this. It's an actual toy, which leads me to some questions.


  1. Does anyone UAT these things? How does it make it through approvals?
  2. What are the AAA bateries for?
  3. Does it vibrate?
  4. What do the buttons do?
  5. Does it require a special cleaner?
  6. For ages 5 and up. Really?
  7. Anyone think it's odd that the company that makes this is called Wild Planet?
  8. There is a carrying case. WTF?
  9. Why does his eyes look like that? What have they seen?
  10. Amazon also sells them used. Ewwww.
  11. People who bought this also bought Casino Royale, the movie. With Daniel Craig. Coincidence? I think not.
  12. Are you buying it for your kid?
  13. Or for yourself? LOL

YellowRose said...

Looks totally ridiculous to me. But then again I come from the generation that had pet rocks! lol

Happy TT!

Darla said...

I can't stop laughing. This is as good as the vibrating Hogwarts broom.

colleen said...

This is an absolute riot! Something my friend Mrs. Pickle would sell! http://www.looseleafnotes.com/notes/2007/01/for_a_good_time_call_mrs_pickl.html

Mama Duck said...

Ha ha ha ha, DH and I laughed so hard! Don't people consider that stuff when they make it?!!

Dragonheart said...

An aquapet? Well, that's different. It sure looks strange!

FRIDAY'S CHILD said...

I'm glad we don't have that here.
My T13 is up too.

Gattina said...

He, he what an invention ! I wonder who it was ! Probably a frustrated woman who loves children ?? And no, I wouldn't buy it not even for my dog if I had one !

Geggie said...

All I can say is "Ewwww!"

0cean Lady said...

That's freakin' funny! Those eyes. lol :-)

Goofy Girl said...

That's a suspicious shape for sure!

Lynn said...

My mom sent my daughter an aquapet years back and I still don't know what it does. It just makes some sound I think. LOL. Now, there's a resurgence of Tamagochi, another virtual pet.

Pink Chihuahua Princess said...

Wow, that's some toy!

Tink said...

Straaaaaaaaange toy... I wonder if kids would like it. I don't buy it, new or used! ;-)
Thanks for visiting my oracle TT.

Sparky Duck said...

well, kids are growing up alot faster these days. Though we should not wonder why.

Candy Minx said...

The tv show The View had a product give away a few months ago that was a "back massager" Rosie could hardly stop laughing to give it to the audience.

It is indeed a wild planet!

Absolutely wonderful TT Carmen!

Christine said...

That is a very strange and suspicious looking toy. Even though my daughter loves Dora, I wouldn't buy it new or used. That's just plain gross.
Happy Thursday Carmen!

Dane Bramage said...

And it's so small too. Ewww.

Thanks for visiting my Thursday Thirteen #36; 13 Things about the Book Trucker's Tales. My friend Scott appreciates it too!

Robin said...

Ewwwwwww! Way too strange for me.

Courtney said...

BWAHAHA!!! I saw this on another blog a while ago and couldn't stop laughing. My question, why does he need a snorkle?

Virginia said...

That is hysterical! Whatever happened to good wholesome toys?! :) What a world...

Here from TT!

Haley-O said...

That thing is HILARIOUS! I canNOT believe anyone would sell THAT with a straight face! LOVE IT! My little monkey would love it, too -- not that she'd have ANY idea why I'd be hysterical laughing whenever I'd look at the thing!

Kimo & Sabi said...

Well, isn't you humans always encouraging kids to play wif themselves...um, we mean...by themselves! Hahahaha!

Teena said...

Ha! What a freaky toy!

Mine's up too :)

Anthony said...

Cool. It reminds me of those old magazine ads that used to sell "back massagers".

Used? Probably the same people who buy those used bicycling shorts on Ebay.
