isn't it cute?
my grandkids love it.
it's a little c.d. player.
not real c.d's tho'.
just those little plastic ones that play kiddy sing along songs.
the front controls flash on and off in time to the music.
like a little disco boom box.
awww, how cute.
even if you don't insert one of the little c.d's it plays a selection of tune snippets.
they love to stick that little microphone right into their mouths and sing along.
last night after three of them had taken turns in playing with it, and sharing their respective germs, i thought i'd be a good nanny and disinfect it and some other toys.
i left it to air dry overnight and then returned it and the other toys to the shelf in the playroom this morning.
after breakfast as we sat in the family room, me and jbug and noo noo, just chilling out and playing with some quiet toys, i heard a noise coming from the playroom next door.
the playroom was in darkness.
i knew what it was straight away so i went in and pressed the STOP button.
and at first it stopped.
it just kept starting up again.
over and OVER!
and it seemed to be all mixed up and slightly 'possessed'.
i would go into the room and press the STOP button.
but as soon as i'd leave the room, guess what?
it would START.
and then stop and get all its little tunes mixed up.
i couldn't remove the batteries 'cos i didn't have the right kind of tiny little screwdriver to remove the battery compartment.
i did think about just throwing it against the wall but i didn't want to traumatise little jbug and noo noo who were quite engrossed in treehouse TV and thankfully hadn't noticed the whole thing.
it was becoming unreal.
i didn't think anyone would believe me.
so i snuck in there in the dark with the camera to show you what i saw.
oh my good god in heaven.
somebody make it stop.
