Valentine’s Day themed handcuffs. For children. For Valentine’s Day.

Took kids to pick out Valentine Day cards last week, and my 7-year-old found this:


Was getting all bummed about the message — the role-modeling sex games part, or the idea love is about capturing someone, or that these little cuffs might be the genesis of some kid’s love for bad boys/girls.

So I texted Little.  Who sent it to her friends.  Who were immediately all like, “Hey, maybe they’re not for a kid’s arm, ifyouknowwhatImean*winkwink* #ball’n’chain.”  And “Great for enforcing toddler time out.” And, “Maybe the romantic part is because you lock your kid to their dresser and you and the spouse have an uninterrupted dinner for once.”

So now I feel better. Thanks, Little!
