The Gift of Annoyance

I was scouting around on Amazon this morning looking for toys for holiday gifts and came across this gem–a $374.00 (originally $699) a href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000NUY8BO?ie=UTF8tag=wwwviolentkicomlinkCode=as2camp=1789creative=9325creativeASIN=B000NUY8BO”emKid Trax Red Fire Engine Electric Ride-On/em/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=B000NUY8BO” width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”” style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / for two to five-year-year-olds that was described as follows:br /br /blockquoteLittle ones can rush to the rescue on this electric ride-on fire truck by Kid Trax. Flashing emergency lights, a working fire hose, and lighted dashboard make each ride thrilling for youngsters ages three and up. The two-speed transmission has speeds at 2.5 mph and 5.0 mph, with reverse at 2.5 mph. Forward and reverse motion is controlled by a clutch located at the bottom of the seat. Parental control ensures safety as the child drives this ride-on. br /br /A working megaphone allows the toddler to call out to victims and the little hero can then put out the blaze with the 1-liter capacity super-spray hose. Fire truck gauges, sturdy grab bars, and pre-applied graphics add to the fun. /blockquotebr /br /How much must you hate the parents of the kid that you give this to? I can’t imagine how annoying and loud this thing must be. Nothing like a loud megaphone, flashing lights and a working fire hose to bring tranquility to the house. br /br /What is the most annoying gift you have ever received for yourself or your kids? What happened to it?
