Worst Gift Idea Ever




Yeah. Thanks for the suggestion, but a time out stool is a terrible Christmas gift.

"Here ya go, Sonny! Now you can be punished in STYLE! Whoo hoo!"

And "cherished forever"?

Really?

Surely you're joking.


On second thought, maybe this IS a good idea. I'll get my boys each a time out stool, a toilet brush and broom and some lumps of coal for their stockings.

Christmas shopping done!

wow...that is really sick. what's cherishable about a stool you spent time-outs on?! some people are really messed up and you know what's worse...? there will be a numbskull that actually buys that!

My MIL once got my son a "bad boy" rocking chair. This is a time out rocking chair, with a clock on it, and it says bad boy on it. Needless to say, it went away.

Worst present ever.

That's pretty bad. Worse than the Salem Lights scarf that my SIL gave my mom one year.

Common sense is pervasively lacking in modernday society. Sheesh!

Loukia said...

Seriously! That is like, the worst Christmas present ever for a child!

Jen said...

LOL! That is totally a gift fail!

I can't believe this is 4 realz. What are people thinking?

"Cherished Forever" seems to be a little optimistic. "resented", possibly.

My kids' Dutch grandmother is forever telling them about jolly St. Nicholas Days when bad kids got whips in their stockings. The spirit of Christmas!

Tracie said...

That is just wrong on so many levels!

Debbie said...

Complicated Mama said...

the fact that they make it and suggest it for holidays is kinda funny

Trish said...

Just found your blog (I'm new to all this!) - very entertaining. That stool had me in stitches - a naughty step for homes on one level?!

Donna said...

Hey?! Did you peak at my shopping list?

Stopping by from SITS to say Hello. Very funny blog.

creative-type dad said...

$40?! Please.

For that much it should at least include duct tape.

SPEAKING FROM THE CRIB said...

i want to order one for myself that says

MOMMY'S TIME OUT SPOT TO SIT BEFORE SHE LOSES IT AND HACKS UP EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU

that felt good

Date Girl said...

Is that a real gift?! I can't believe someone would really consider buying that for their kid. Maybe as a joke gift? We can only hope!

LOL that is the funniest ad ever!
