From the Front Line: Toys from Hell

Last night, coming to bed after midnight, I entered the bedroom as quietly as possible so as not to disturb my wife. Just as I was about to lie down, I stepped on Koda, Brother Bear Talking Bear Cub, who yelled out: "RAW-AWR! Scared ya, didn't I!"

After catching my breath, I began giggling uncontrollably.

This scene has come to mind several times since I read it, and it has made me laugh every time.

I still laugh about it too - I think about it every night I come to bed late.

Glad you enjoyed it.

That reminds me of the time my husband was attempting to throw away one the the kid's toys ~ a Ferbi. This toy had sensors and would talk if was moved. My husband hated the toy, and one night tossed in the trash bag he was taking to the garage. He was walking through the family room with the trash bag, and all of a sudden a little voice cried out from the trash bag, "I'm sca-a-ared". He was caught! The kids implored him not to throw away their toy and he relented. That time.

Mary, thanks for stopping by. That's a funny Ferbi story.

These toys know more than we think they do. Of that much we can be certain ...
