More Proof of Amazon's Sex Toy Business

As further proof that Amazon has decided to enter the sex toy market, they've even tried passing vibrators off as kids' toys. I give you Exhibit A:

The Nimbus 2000 Harry Potter Broomstick which was sold on Amazon until it was pulled off their site a few years back. I guess the kiddies figured out that it was long and hard and needed lots of D-sized batteries.

But look at some of the reviews posted by these daft mothers. I think they've spent too much time under the kitchen sink huffing Lysol while the kids are at school. I mean, only one of them caught on:

- I recently bought this for my son, Vantro. He's a HUGE Harry Potter fan. Seen the movie 32 times (in the theaters) and made the paper. This toy gives him the ability to fly around the house zapping things. My only problem I see with the toy is the batteries drain too fast and his sister fights him over it, so now I need to buy her one.

- When my 12 year old daughter asked for this for her birthday, I kind of wondered if she was too old for it, but she seems to LOVE it. Her friends love it too! They play for hours in her bedroom with this great toy. They really seem to like the special effects it offers (the sound effects and vibrating). My oldest daughter (17) really likes it too! I reccomend this for all children.

- My 12 year old daughter is a big Harry Potter fan, and loved the part with the Nimbus 2000, so I decided to buy her this toy. I was afraid she would think it was too babyish, but she LOVES this toy. Even my daughter's friends enjoy playing with this fun toy. I was surprised at how long they can just sit in her room and play with this magic broomstick! A great buy for any Harry Potter fan! :)

- This toy was #1 on my daughter's Christmas list. So what the heck, although it has no educational value I figured it would be good for imaginative play. It wasn't until after she opened her gift and started playing with it that I realized that the toy may offer a more than sensational experience. The broomstick has cute sound effects and ***VIBRATES*** when they put it between their legs to fly. Come on---what were the creators of this toy thinking? She'll keep playing with the Nimbus 2000, but with the batteries removed.

Yes and they always seem to be the ones who are most fertile!
