Making fun of a Christmas Present

Just a quick post tonight! I bought this Princess Carriage toy today at WalMart as a Christmas present for my young niece, Sydney. Don’t worry, I’m pretty sure she isn’t a regular reader of the blog. By the way, yes, I do know, it’s only August, but when you’re having a baby in December, it’s important to get a really good jump on these things, trust me, I know.

Anyway, after I got it home and added it to my Christmas list that I keep track of all the presents I’ve bought so far for the year and who I still need to get presents for. After I marked the Princess Carriage on the list, I happened to notice a fairly humorous advertising point on the box. Check out the picture and see if you can pick it out.

Did you see it? It’s in the top left corner to right of the logo.  “Let’s play! Over 6 FUN features.” Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with a simple toy intended for one year olds, but it’s not something I would personally have bragged about.  Plus, I’m pretty sure that one of the features is the ability to put the princess on the horse and another one is the ability to take the princess off.

It makes me picture someone in the store saying something to the effect of, “Oh the wheels actually turn!  Buy me fourteen NOW!” and then cleaning the store out of the things.
