On 20/20 this evening they had a small piece on how evil Harry Potter is. I think it is because of Satan or something.
The books are the least of the alarmists' problems. What do you do when your kid says they want the Harry Potter Vibrator?
These are some of the reviews from the amazon.com site:
When my 12 year old daughter asked for this for her birthday, I kind of wondered if she was too old for it, but she seems to LOVE it. Her friends love it too! They play for hours in her bedroom with this great toy. They really seem to like the special effects it offers (the sound effects and vibrating). My oldest daughter (17) really likes it too! I reccomend this for all children.
My 12 year old daughter is a big Harry Potter fan, and loved the part with the Nimbus 2000, so I decided to buy her this toy. I was afraid she would think it was too babyish, but she LOVES this toy. Even my daughter's friends enjoy playing with this fun toy. I was surprised at how long they can just sit in her room and play with this magic broomstick! A great buy for any Harry Potter fan! :)
Hours of fun, indeed.
*Update 4/24/2011. Removed dead link to the Nimbus 2000. While searching for a good link, I noticed that I appear to have scooped boingboing on this by a few days, eight and a half years ago...
I have found it helpful to do the stretching exercises my physical therapist recommends. Do some core strengthening exercises, such as the ones highlighted at The Mayo Clinic. By keeping your core strong, your back won't put itself in a position to cause that sciatica pain you are having.
