Pardon my confusion, but...



Do we not spend countless hours and DOLLARS babyproofing our homes? How often have you AGONIZED that your house might not be babyproof enough for your crafty little houdinis? I'm walking through that mecca of germs and money wasting mess of a Toys R Us yesterday and this is what I find. Perfect. Let's buy a puzzle that teaches our kids how to open a window latch?!? Cause we want them to know how to open a window and potentially FALL TO THEIR DEATH. Cute idea, I guess...but people. COME ON! I love Melissa & Doug but I think we'll have to stick to the naming the states puzzle for now.

Maybe they could also make one to teach them to turn on the car and also to light a match. I mean ... why not make them really smart!

hee, hee!!!

Yea, I agree with you on this one! Not quite sure what they were thinking. And, we live downtown with busy traffic...I have one of those ugly chain latches on our front door, merely for CHILD SAFETY. Last thing I need to be worried about is dd getting out in the front yard. It only takes a split second, and it happens to the best of us.

Oh my god, that would have totally slipped past me! Maybe they can make one that teaches them how to make the knob 'click' on the gas range too.

I thought the EXACT same thing when my 5 and 3 year olds starting playing with this at Barnes and Noble yesterday! They were begging for me to buy the thing that would ruin all my efforts to keep them safe (and from running out the front door when I'm getting a late start getting ready for the day!)

That is so true. And I don't think my little houdinis need any help in figuring out how to get out! They seem to do just fine on their own.
