Mattel vibrating broomstick is a big hit amongst teen girls: Are their parents clueless?

What morons! Those parents are completely clueless
Though there are some who might not use it responsibly, Im sure a lot of the people who use it use it for "Quidditch" purposes only... The parents arent to blame
Cmon! You people and your dirty minds... Im sure its just a fun toy and theres nothing to worry about!
You!

A TOY firm has axed a vibrating replica of Harry Potter's broomstick after mums complained their daughters spent too long riding it. Makers Mattel advertised the battery operated toy as having "a grooved stick and handle for easy riding."


Here are some customer reviews from Amazon:

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! :)


The customer reviews were written by parents... are these people clueless? Or are the kids actually just using it to play Quidditch?

    Not been on this site before, but is everyone retarded?

    Have you never heard of the Amazon joke reviews where people on unusual products make a load of humorous reviews?

    The reviews that are quoted in this article are exactly these. You people, you have no idea about anything on the internet do you?

    ... but just wait till somehow toy marketers find a way to produce a sybian broomstick ... or a sybian saddle for the broomstick !! The 12 year old will never be able to get it away from "mom" ... or Gramma !!

    maybe mom should have given the toy a try too, but then the daughter never would have gotten her birthday present...
