Do not buy these. Unless you hate the parents in question. In which case, by all means proceed.

2. The “Vacuum Snacks.”

K’Nex rods and connectors are tasty treats.

As are these guys (the bracelets, not NPH and Craig Ferguson…okay both.)

But the vacuum’s favorite meal will always be Barbie shoes because of the dulcet clatter they make going in.

3. The “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things.”

Pink and green stains on the couch and tables.

ID: 953818

“Removable” stickers and “washable” marker coat furniture and walls alike.

And sand in every crevice of every room.

4. The “Psychological Torture.”

ID: 953859

Look at this soul crushing device, just sitting there all innocent.

Please God, no.

Is there anything grosser than cookies baked under the heat of a light bulb?

And of course the oven is not a toy…until it is.

These farms are the Trojan Horse of ants; they will escape and infest the entire house.

ID: 953968

After paying money to keep the bugs out, the kids will bring them IN.
