    I can understand why my wife's parents & my parents buy my son all the electronic, noisey toys they can find! That part is obvious!

    But WHY would a toy manufacturer make toys that don't have an off switch?!:angry1: :pissed:

    All yesterday we had a cow that moo's a stupid tune when NJ presses it's nose. Last night/this morning after changing his nappy I nudged his stupid plastic train that then started choo chooing the house down & woke him up!:pissed: :angry1: :irked:

    It's not because they have a sense of humour because he has a caterpiller with lettered feet and it says the phonetic sound of the letter. We had to make sure it couldn't be "mis-used" or course and when I pressed f-u what should be a lower case c is turned into a girly giggle! NO FUN AT ALL!:pissed: :irked: :angry1: :banghead:


    And toy mobile phones that have exactly the same ring tones as a real Nokia phone! Now how is THAT funny? :angry1: :banghead: :pissed: :irked: :soapbox:

    That normaly wouldn't be a problem except last weekend he decided to "hide" my mobile in the tumble dryer! We could hear it ringing but nobody could find it.

    :lol:

    They all have off switches. Sometimes you have to pop along to B&Q to buy them separately. You'll find them in the hammer section. They work well when computers break to.

    Oh, I hear you, Plastic!
    Though, luckily, both sets of grandparents were quite reasonable about their toy presents to my kids when they were little.
    But those things can be hell!
    My nephews used to have plenty of those.
    Pure hell!

    Today it's "Linkin' Park", the same CD, FOREVER.
    Something to look forward to... ;)

    He raps with it too! Now we get "Mooo M M M M Mo Moooooo M M Mooooo"


    Maybe he's trying to communicate on a different level?

    And I'll bet they use amazingly long life batteries that just can't be bought in the shops too! :x :confused:

    Oh noooo! TEENAGERS!:chatty:

    He's OK with music at the moment though! He like "Jessica" by the Allman Brother Band (Formerly BBC's Top Gear program theme tune) so I'm OK with that! :lol:
