Last week I was walking through Toys R Us looking for the cheapest perfect birthday gift for Andrew’s classmate. Cherishing the alone time I was having, I decided to walk around and get some ideas for Caroline’s birthday. She will be two next month and loves Elmo. I’ve been thinking about doing an Elmo party for her so I went in search of all things Elmo.
I came to the party aisle and stopped dead in my tracks. Something was immediately disturbing to me. How can they make this? What cruel people think this is appropriate?
Just think about it for a moment.
Elmo, the adorable, cuddly, lovable friend of your child’s getting his body bashed with a bat.
Imagine the terror that will strike in the minds of little kids when they witness this.
Shouldn’t this product come with a label? In the event that you use incredibly poor judgement and decide to have this at your child’s birthday party, you will be required to pay for 3 years of therapy.
I’m pretty sure we will pass on this and just opt for the Elmo napkins and plates.
