Tamra Lerum, a mom of two, loves a good deal as much as any other mama. So when she spotted some toys on sale at Walgreens, she caved and let her son get them. Unfortunately, it appears that the Easter toys may have been heavily discounted for a reason. In a now-viral Facebook post, the mum explained what the items looked like when her son Finn finally opened them, and LOL, they really should've been free.
"All right so my son Finn and I stopped at Walgreen's today," she wrote on Facebook. "It had a ton of their Easter stuff super discounted so I let him grab some random toys. Finn decided he HAD to get these bananas! They're super squishy, and I figured whatever it has cute packageing and it's a good sensory toy for a toddler. Well I'm having trouble with them... can anyone guess why? The first photo is what they come in. They're packaged super cute and appealing for kids. Then you open the package and peel them!"
But as soon as she got one of the packages open, she noticed that each item looked suspiciously like, er, sex toys. "Inside is a surprise! Looks like a giant dildo my 3-year-old is waving around," she said. "He pulled it out of his coat pocket when we picked up his older brother today at preschool! I told him NOT TO BRING IT IN!!! I yelled FINN PUT THAT AWAY! FYI The preschool is in a church! SO mortified! (It's supposed to be a finger... who thought this was ok?!?)"
In the comments section, Tamra explained that she took the toys — which only set her back 50 cents each — away without giving her little ones much of an explanation. "SO when I came home I opened the rest of them up, I was disgusted," she said. "Honestly, shocked." Now, she's warning other parents. "I figured I should forewarn anyone who may run into these toys in the future," wrote the mum. "I would HATE for some parent to buy them as a party favour for their kids birthday party or something. Just awful."
