While browsing for fun and educational gifts for kids to add to our Christmas Gift Guide I ran across this Pull Apart Poultry stuffed bird at Land of Nod. I had to stop, take off my glasses, and rub my eyes to make sure I read that right. A pull apart stuffed poultry toy for kids? Seriously? One part of me thinks it’s educational and good for kids to know but the other part of me thinks it’s kind of gross.
Here’s what the description says:
“Ready to let your little one take care of preparing the big holiday meal? No? We didn’t think so. That’s why we figured this plush dinner would be a better alternative. With a soft, plush construction and sturdy frame, it’s sure to last you many pretend meals to come.”
My husband and I have been learning how to cut a whole chicken to save money. Well, I should say that my husband is the one who actually does the cutting but I feel that I deserve some credit for rewinding YouTube tutorials over and over again as he is learning. As soon as I saw this stuffed bird I had to email him at work to show him. He quickly replied back, “Good to teach her early. Kids should know the nugget isn’t a part of a chicken. I like it.” He makes me smile. I never did add this to our Gift Guide but you can find it on Land of Nod for $20 if you think your little one would enjoy it.
What think ye? Pull apart poultry – yea or nay?
