Why My Brother Is On My List...

I'm Captain Uniqua, the patchy eyed pirate!
Arrrgh!

If you wanna be a pirate get up on your feet
You can't be a pirate if you're sitting in your seat
Swing your arms up
And stand kind of tall
and make big noise wherever you go
Arrrgh! Arrrgh! Arrgh!
A pirate, a pirate, a pirate says, "ARRRRGH!!"*

*It's a reggae beat, mon...

My son received Mountie Tyrone and I am already thinking about taking out the batteries.

Connie said...

Oh wow...I have already placed a ban on toys that make noise. I've been threatened with fire hats including siren, drums, toy drills, etc.

Man, dey gonna kill me! ;0)

scribbit said...

It looks like something from the Wiggles, but as my kids are past that stage I'm not as up to date on my pre-school toys. Reggae? Hmmm. . . yea, I'd take out the batteries.

Blech...you know you only get noisemaking toys from relatives who don't have to listen to them...

carrie said...

This disturbs me yet also leaves me feeling vaguely aroused...

Anonymous said...

wtf with the annoying toys? throw it away.

Gen said...

NO..No...he didn't.

I'd send the kids and the damn thing to him for a week.

so what did you do to receive such retaliation???? ;)

Kristin said...

I think he is getting me back for telling him that he was born with a tail...

Joannah said...

My sister had a rule that if one were to give her children toys that made noise, then one would be obligated to keep those toys at their house for the children to play with when visiting. I think that's a good rule.

(That thing isn't very cute, IMHO.)

Jodi said...

UGH. i hate toys that make noise. My kids are WAY noisy enough already, they need no help. My only hope for you is that your brother has kids that you can buy VERY noisy toys for. :)

mamatulip said...

Yeah. I blogged about Turbo Tail Tigger. The thing bounces around like it's all sorts of coked up...I hate it.

Kristi said...

There's no such thing as toys that make noise in my house. My kids go visit other houses and their faces shine in wonder at the talky toys. My husband and I sneer in pity at the fool parents who keep a supply of batteries handy for their own misery.

Suckas!

Nicki said...

alright b-funk, finally getting you back! although you send his daughter really sweet things....

Glinda said...

I didn't even see this one coming; I'm usually in the know when it comes to hot-gotta-have-it-cuz-everyone-else-does-toys...you're so lucky you got one. I'm going to hop on E-bay and see if I can land one for my daughter...she said sarcastically in her best
hag-ridden voice.;)

Jenny said...

Ha! I know that song...sigh. We have the pirate ship too.

My roommate in college had the rock and roll chicken alarm clock. It used to sing, "Wow! Yeah! Hey Baby Wake Up. Come-on, and dance with me!" repeatedly. On a number of occasions I felt like "terminating" this chicken.

Oh, The Joys said...

Gifts of toys that are noisy = WAR.

What is that thing!? Toys that make noise never get batteries. "Oh, we're out! I'll have to get some at the store later."

mrsmogul said...

Hmm that's crazy!!! I'm just realizing what famous tv characters there are such as the annoying BARNEY now it's some pirate purple thing! ArRRHH!!

sweatpantsmom said...

I clicked on the picture because I thought it linked to a video - I want to see this thing in action!

Happily, we're past the stage of talking dolls. We've arrived at the stage of ridiculously loud instruments and beeping video games.

Pendullum said...

Now, did your brother also give extra batteries????
My FIL tried to give my daughter a drum kit...

In my 'sweetest' of voices I let him know what would happen to him if said gift was given at Christmas... and he would have to be very wary of what I put on his plate at Chrismas,,, Very wary indeed...

So,no drumkit...

Happiness abounds.... All is right in my world...
Sorry about your pirate...

We've received our share of obnoxious gifts in the past... Have fun with the Backyardigans!

Cindy said...

We are the few and far between that actually don't care if toys make noise. We started out with the quiet toy rule and then realized that books/blocks/wooden puzzles banging together aren't really that quiet either. Though the rolling duck that flashes and plays the Ice Cream Truck Song (Do your ears hang low????) may get a quick layer of duct tape over the speaker just to quiet it down a bit....
