Bratz? Shame on any parent who actually buys that trashy shiat for their kids.

Durendal: Bratz? Shame on any parent who actually buys that trashy shiat for their kids.

Y'know, it really pisses me off when people try to persuade parents not to turn their six year olds into slutty little ho-bags. Without bad parenting and appalling role models where are all the hot, morally bankrupt, 18 year olds, for older, richer, guys to enjoy their mid-life crises with, going to come from ?

I know my odds of getting the Wii at Christmas are low, so I intend to sit inside Wal-Mart's Layaway section for 18 hours in the hopes of getting one at launch. You have to be rational about these things.

Pretty lame list...

Somehow, I doubt the kiddies are clamoring for a non-standard "monopoly" board game. Maybe if it was based on Pokémon or Yu-Gi-Oh, but just real world locations?

It amazes me people even bother rushing the brick and mortar stores anymore when it's so much easier and often cheaper to buy the stuff online. Want a Wii at launch? Pre-order the damned thing!

When you've got people out there crazy enough to pull a gun on each other over a tickle-me elmo doll, it's time to stop tormenting yourself.

My wife and I couldn't agree with you more. It's just plain inappropriate. And of course they blast their whoremarketing at my kids every chance they can get.

/If I could have just ONE minute with the exec that signed off on the Bratz toy line...

No PS3!??? WTF This list sucks squirrel nuts. I guess at 500 to 600dls parents won't be beating each other over the privilege to buy it, but its supply will be muuuuuch lower than the wii's
/BEK, WINS, PERFECT! RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIING!

Speed Stacks Stackpack (Play Along Toys, a division of Jakks Pacific Inc., $39.99). This game challenges kids to stack and restack specially designed cups in precise formations. It comes with competition-ready cups, an official StackMat, timer and instructional DVD. Ages 4 and up.
Quit reading right there, and i was reading from the bottom up.

I dunno - Monopoly - Here and Now looks pretty cool for a change of pace.

Elmo's squeaky laugh and body movements grow more pronounced with three successive tickles.

I read "successive" as "suggestive." Barf!

Except that Walmart is phasing out its layaway section before Christmas. ;P

Meh....the Wii and the Legos maybe, but for my husband, not my kids. None of the rest of that crap though.

And yes, bratz are horrid. Even my 10 year old thinks they're rediculous and overly trashy. There are and will be none in my house.

Glad I wasn't the only one.

I'm paying 4 high school chumps I know to stand in line for me and buy up PS3's so I can sell the farkers on ebay.

Hooray for the market economy! I will pay for all my christmas shopping this year with the proceeds from these suckers.

Can't wait for Gears of War either

Gah! You parents today have it so easy. With your "pointing" and your "clicking." When I was your age we had to stand in line starting in August just so that we could get one pack of bubblegum for our kids.

BUT WE WERE THANKFUL FOR THE OPPORTUNITY!

Good luck with that... if you can trust high schoolers with $2,400 in cash after they inevitably fail to beat out the rush on the 4 to 6 PS3 units that store will get for the year, you're a far better person than I am. I don't even think most stores are bothering to set up space for the PS3 due to the low numbers and limited number of launch titles.

I want the Mindstorms really badly, for some reason. The Wii is what will be getting my money, though.
 
2006-10-08 04:16:52 PM
Is it me or are toys getting crappier and crappier. I'm glad my kid is beyond this shiat.
 
2006-10-08 04:18:29 PM
OMG, Bratz are disgusting. I seriously don't know how parents can give their little girls(/boys?) those things. At least Barbie is (somewhat) evenly proportioned and has had several careers and whatnot. What do the Bratz do besides look like skanky hos with giant heads?
 
2006-10-08 04:21:11 PM
Bratz, the name says it all. Man, those things are soooo tacky.
 
2006-10-08 04:21:12 PM
Barbie is almost as skanky as the Bratz line is now. She stopped making a stand for herself and began whoring herself out to the least common denominator at Mattel's will.
 
2006-10-08 04:22:04 PM
any parent that buys Bratz for their kid is a terrible parent.

I have no idea what "Bratz" are but you all sound like the teacher who almost sent me home for my "I'm Bart Simpson, who the Hell are you?" t-shirt back in the 6th grade.

/blissfully child free
//may buy a PS3 with all the disposable income
///and play it in between pre-marital sex
 
2006-10-08 04:37:58 PM
Here to jump on the Bratz bashing bandwagon.
And what is up with all the clothing for little girls with stuff written across the butt? "Girl Scouting"?! WTF?

/Have a 9 year old girl
//knows better to even ask for this crap!
 
2006-10-08 04:38:54 PM
At least that idiotic trading card based video game consol wasn't on the list. How can that possibly NOT fail?

Bratz: Training up the next generation of attention-craving porn stars. As someone who is not a parent, I approve.

Look them up. Google is your friend.

No comparison. Bart is merely obnoxious; Bratz are preteen hookers.
 
2006-10-08 04:43:17 PM
So did I Django.cj "My Funeral Friend's Pony".

Lots of mother's with 3 year olds I know are buying the fisher price digital camera.

I don't understand this "must have xmas gift" mentality for the kids, it's not like american kids aren't showered with toys 365 days a year. They aren't exactly deprived.

Xmas day usually means the continuous flow of presents ramps up to a niagara.

My poor Grandma grew up in the depression, you know what she got for xmas? Nothing. Both ways. In the snow.

Slightly different here...

The Bratz line is basically designed to rush young girls (like 6 year olds) into a false sense of maturity way too early in their lives. It almost implies that they are required to start taking it up the ass as soon as possible, to prevent becoming a social outcast.
 
2006-10-08 04:47:17 PM
Well all this talk about bratz training the next crop of porn stars has given me the idea to go check out the foobies tab.
 
2006-10-08 04:50:16 PM

Okay, then call it "the place in the building that is physically closest to loading so they don't have to lug any of them to electronics."
 
2006-10-08 04:50:51 PM
Yeah the Brats crap just screams "I'm a skank!"

I was berated by some "mother" when she over-heard me remark to my friend "When did whore become the fashion choice for preteen girls?" as we walled thru the mall.

It was so hard not to strike the baitch.
 
2006-10-08 04:51:33 PM
Is anyone trying to sell pictures of any of that stuff an a web auction site, yet?

Heh. I remember when the Xbox 360 (I think it was) was a "hot" Xmas item, and some weasel decided to auction off pictures of it to morons who thought they were bidding on an actual Xbox. But the seller actually wrote "this is an auction for photographs only" in the description; people simply weren't reading that far ahead, apparently. I recall the bid going up to something like $300.
 
2006-10-08 04:51:45 PM
WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!


Nintendo FTW.

Twilight Princess looks absolutely stunning and I have no doubt that 2007 will have a number of incredibly impressive Wii exclusives.
 
2006-10-08 04:52:32 PM
I predict that worthless Monopoly Here & Now edition will be the biggest toy flop of this decade.

It's not that if you buy your kids Bratz you've failed as a parent... It's if your kids would even want them in the first place.

Big Empty BoxTM is the greatest toy ever.
