SCARY toys

oh look at this sweet little innocent toy.
isn't it cute?
so friendly.
my grandkids love it.
a lot.
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.
and 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.

I'd sleep with one eye open for a while;)

ChiTown Girl said...

bwah hahahahaha! I seriously have tears running down my face!!!! I was ok until you started talking to the thing. Then, I couldn't stop laughing. THEN, the begging started. It was the "HOLY SHIT!" that sent me over the edge!!!!! Sorry, my Clippy, I don't mean to laugh at your misery. Ok, I do!

Busy Bee Suz said...

LOL! I would have believed you without the video! We used to have a 'pound-a-ball' that made electronic noises when you successfully pounded the ball hard enough so that it fell through the hole. It would make noises all by itself every time we had a thunderstorm. Then there was the set of pretend keys with remote that went beep & vroom - every time we walked past the toy box!

Clippy Mat said...

thanks for all your comments and hello to new follower almost american, nice to meet you.
i laughed out loud at woody's comment about sleeping with one eye open.
i don't know about submerging the thing tho' as it was after coming into contact with water that it started its antics in the first place if you remember. not sure what would happen if i stuck it in a bucket LOL

ModernMom said...

New here but had to comment! That kind of thing freaks me out!! :)

Pam said...

Take out the battries, then throw if from a window, then sneak it into the trash when the kids aren't looking.
(speaking from experience)

Karen @ If I Could Escape . . . said...

Oh no! That is very strange indeed and in to the bucket it would go if one found it's way in to my kids' toy box!

Crazy Mo said...

OMG! I was killing myself laughing just reading the blog, then started snorting when I watched the video. Especially loved the expletive at the end. I think I would have been a little more colourful than that, myself.

TechnoBabe said...

Some thing just cannot be disinfected. Maybe having toys with nasty germs on them actually helps the kids immune systems by cranking up their ability to fight off the germs????

Grace Matthews said...

My son had a big bird doll that talked and he use to go off all by itself....creapy huh? It's possessed!

Jessica Finished Laughing said...

LOL i showed this to my boyfriend we giggles, that is why you dont buy battery operated toys. Hehehehe they get possessed at the end of the battery life and try to LIVE....BUWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Attila The Mom said...

OMG! I would have beat that thing to bits with a hammer. LOL

Gill - That British Woman said...

sorry that is just so funny!!!! I find little kids toys very confusing at times, I suppose it doesn't help that we don't have little kids so not familiar with what their toys can do.......
