For sale. 
One child, good condition, all original parts (one or two teeth upgraded) no instructions. 

Starts first time most days, needs a little care and attention to ensure smooth running. 

Can tend to become noisier after extended use. Will need regular servicing to maintain overall clean finish. Fuel consumption average, will run well on chocolate.

Will need increased amount of money spent on upkeep in years ahead. 

Cheeky grin, infectious laugh and quiet(ish) running when on standby.

Have two other possible sales if interested in bulk purchase. 

Serious offers only please. 😉

I want that!

“I love that game!” Shouted Matthew. “Can I have it?” I glanced up at the TV, oh god not that one again. “We’ll see, Mo, we’ll see”.

Which as every parent knows, means no. 

You see Matthew, and Jessica and George, all like the look of  Doggie Doo, a game in which you win by picking up dog shit.

I know the manufacturer might argue that it teaches children to look after their pet in a responsible way, thus ensuring less mess out on the streets, and happy contented puppies, but it’s not going to be at the top of everyone’s ‘must have’ list of games this coming Christmas, is it? 

Mind you, I know I’m looking at this game in a very sensible, grown up way. Children, as we all know, can spend an hour laughing over the word ‘fart’, so what do I know?
