Posted:I was looking at a box of toys in a basket and this caught my eye.

Could it be a bear doing poi? It was made to hang over the babies cot.
Could not find the manufacturers name on it, anyone seen another toy like this for babies?

Start selling them in the store. Lotsa hopers have kids. Hook 'em while there young (hey it worked for the cigarette companies).

I think I saw them at toy's 'R us (or something that look almost the same) when my beloved girlfriend/fiance drug me into the baby section.


In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird, now the world is weird and they take prozac to make it normal again.

Posted:*giggles* nice one malcom ubblol

but this is just a suggestion..maybe you could think about selling poi soft enough for lil kids .. cos whenever i swing i get a whole queue of kids wanting a go especially the led sticks..i mean i was at a bbq the other day and the youngest to want a go was 2yrs old .. he wanted to look like a butterfly bless him .. just though it was worth a mention biggrin

ubblol



shape of his hands?! ubblol



dude, i thought maybe the fact that he's got babies swinging upsidedown while the mother idly sits by might have suggested it was fake...?



nappy changes are what gilligans were invented for. smile

Believe me, they're not the only ones. I have a 22 yr old brother and he seems to be pretty obsessed with hitting stuff with my poi. spank

Posted:Stepping up on soapbox

I just want to go on record as saying that as a pediatrician in training, I am deeply offended by Coleman's crass and thoughtless use of a photograph of children clearly being abused and neglected. I think we need to have an official HOP policy against showing photographs involving people twirling children.
