You know it’s a full-fledged comedy boom when they’re manufacturing and marketing stand-up comedy toys for kids!
From the company Toys To Grow On, it’s marketed to children as young as 4 years old up to age 12 with the following description:
Every show is a smash hit with this cool, real-working mike—kids just step on the pedals to hear laughter and applause! The set includes a long cord, volume control and a jack for a radio, CD/cassette or MP3 player. Adjusts from 24″ to 42″ high. 4 “C” batteries not included. Our exclusive. (4 years – 12 years)
Why deal with the reality of deadly silence at an open mic to teach a young comedian about bombing, when instead, you can program and brainwash your kids into thinking everything they say is laugh-out-loud funny, and a killer joke worthy of an applause break, to boot. They’ve even included a brick wall in the photo to make your child’s fantasy funny world complete.
On the bright side, the photo online features a young girl on the microphone. #ChangeTheRatio!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, everybody.
