I don't wanna grow up, I'm a ToysRUs kid!

...and there's a million things at ToysRUs that I can play with!
(and now you have the song in your head! haha!)

Perhaps it's because they're trying to keep up the million toy count for the whole truth in advertising "fad" or maybe they're just lazy, but ToysRUs trips have sort of morphed into what-kind-of-wacked-out-scary-toys-are-on-the-shelf-today trips.

Yesterday was Jim's birthday, so I took him out on the town for the new GI Joe movie and then some shopping. Here is my latest cache of weird, strange, and disturbing items found at your friendly ToysRUS.

1. liquefying Bambi "Look, Ma! No bones!"

2. Zoo Dr Barbie "Look, Ma! No dress code!" Seriously, when is the last time you saw anyone who deals with random bodily fluids on a regular basis dress like that?
Before we move on from here, check out that monkey x-ray. Apparently it ate a radioactive partially-peeled banana. Whole.

3. Animal Planet's Shark Attack play set, complete with dented cage and biting motion. "Look, Ma! No funny one-liner!"
Aside from the fact that this perpetuates an unhealthy stereotype (sorry - soapbox moment!), check out the fine print.
And, no Animal Planet, that does not make up for the disturbing little play set you've created.


And remember, nothing lights up your world with love like an $8 neck-less doll!

OH my, these are fantastic, and your comments succeeded in making me laugh out loud. I'm not ROTF, but only because I'm lazy. Seriously -- great way to satrt my day.

Too bad I didn't 'start' with spellcheck. And I was walking behind you at SITS.

That is great! Sheesh. I'm always getting dragged into the toy aisle. You'd think I would pay more attention! I guess I'll have to start now!
Happy Saturday Sharefest
