A treadmill. For a toddler.
What is wrong with this country?
What happened to "Go play outside kids!"
What about "Let's go play catch."
What kind of parent purchases a $154.00 treadmill for their toddler to "burn off extra energy?"
And look at those little footprint stickers on the runner, how adorable.
I know what it is to have energetic kids. My son is a little firecracker. He's the greatest. The kid goes from morning until night and barely takes a breath (in fact he is crawling around on the floor right now pretending his Thomas train is flying, this after a full day at kindergarten).
Children need to be PLAYED with.
FRIENDSHIP needs to be encouraged, so kids get out and experience the world.
I can just see neglectful parents that buying this thing, and props a TV in front of it. It is just shameful.
And don't even go down the "there's an obesity epidemic" line of thought. We are talking toddlers here. Young children that parents should be teaching and cherishing, and encouraging IMAGINATION to cure any boredom.
I swear, sometimes I think I was not meant to live in this crazy place. I just don't relate. Moreover, I just don't want to.
Off to fly trains with my boy,
