Who needs toys?
(submitted by Megan)
I could never leave my purse on the floor where my little dog could get into it when no one was looking. She would always go for my pad stash and rip them apart all over the floor. I still don’t know what the attraction was for her.
I heard that a woman won a magazine contest for “Most Embarrassing Experience” when her boys took all her tampons and used them for parachutes on the front lawn.
funny but not awkard – come on people!
My little sisters used to stick them to the bottom of their feet and use them as skates, it was too funny
Who needs Halloween candy when you’ve got Tampax?!
This is the best pic! The look on the little one’s face is too cute!!
I was babysitting some rather rambunctious boys once. Just when I thought I had them under control one of them comes calmly into the living room stuffing a tampon in his ear. He told me thy were mommy’s ear cleaners.
It turns out the Lion wasn’t cowardly after all. He had another problem that the Wizard could not fix.
“Yeahhuh, we can too, Jimmy, it says so right here on the box: ‘With Playtex Tampons, you can go horseback riding, go swimming, play tennis, go running, ride a motorcycle….’”
Oh man, that little kid is ten different kinds of adorable.
This is TOO funny! I love that the little ‘lion’ is using them for claws! I don’t think this is awkward, but cute & funny. Now if it were 2 grown men….
Thank God I’m not the only kid who used to do that! I used to pretend the tubes were cigars, and then proceeded to get into my Groucho Marx impression.
Why is that kid dressed in a lion costume?
Lions, tigers, playtex and tampons OH MY!
i remember thinking that pads must be really good cookies that my mum didn’t want to share, since they always came out of the drug store bag and we never saw them again lol..figured she was hiding them haha
This is HILLARIOUS!!!! PLEASE save this for when they grow up and bring their girlfriends home to meet you.
Well, they are made by PLAYtex…!
His outfit reminds me of “Where The Wild Things Are.” What a rumpus!
My friend used to cut eye holes in them and pretend it was a mask. It sticks right to your face!
Speaking of the innocence of kids-there is also the natural curiousity of kids and dad’s protective sports cup.My current brother-in-law came out of the bathroom when he was about 4 wearing his dad’s cup as a face mask.Unfortunately no one had a cmaera.
Reminds me of the party episode in the Young Ones where Rik pulls a tampon out of a guest’s bag “ooh, you’ve brought me a present!’ (unwraps) ‘It’s a telescope, with something inside! It’s a telescope with a mouse in it! Great!’
Love the look on the little boy’s face!
This is too cute. LOVE the kid on the left. It reminds me of back when my sister was 5 she didn’t want to start kindergarden so she unwrapped all the pads she could find and stuck them all over her leg then hobbled to my parents where she proceeded to explain that her leg was broken as demonstrated by her “cast” and she therefore could not attend school.
OHMYGOD, this just made me LAUGH OUT LOUD hysterically!
Thanks for allowing my coworkers to think I’m even crazier than they thought.
This is too cute-ahhhh the innocence. When I was about 3 I cut my knee outside and came back with a “super band-aid” on my knee. My teenage cousin and her friends roared with laughter! Mommy was not so happy.
puts the play into playtex yo
Ok, I said it once and I’ll say it again– the older child is a girl, not a boy. I’m sure of it. Oh, and she has absolutely no idea what’s in store for her in about 9 years…..
Sorry Tamara-they are both boys. They are my Grandsons.
Oops, my bad… My most humble apologies to your grandson. Well, nothing like the anonymity of the world wide web…
This reminds me of when I was three and I used to unwrap pads and stick them on my mom’s closet mirror. Good times.
This photo is obviously photoshopped. Look at the pixels around the tampon on the lion’s middle finger. Just kidding. It seems like in every photo, someone has to try and ruin the fun with their “expertise”. This one is just too hilarious.
LOL ray. Yeah, what about that? Where are the photoshoppers today?
We aren’t here because it’s not photoshopped. Have fun with this one because you aren’t being duped! Just kidding.
i dunno….back in the 70′s…my moms copy of Ms. had a free panty liner….I used it for a bullet proof vest for my old school GI Joe.
Well, they are for protection.
I am a little late to the party, but, Kathleen….nothing but net on that one. Just beautiful!
hahahaha i love it!!!!
my 2.5 year old got into my pads once and brought one out to the living room where my mother in law, brother, myself and husband were hanging out.
she asked me if i needed to change my diaper.
it was hilaaaaaaaaaaarious.
OMG!! I think I laughted so hard, I peed alittle when I read your comment.
the best picture i’ve seen so far,
My son did this when he was 3 but he took off all his clothes and put the pads, sticky side on his boy parts, and walked outside. He is 15 now and I still have the before removal pics and the after removal pics.
Oh PLEASE share these with the us. The world needs to see this fabulousness.
Adorable! The little one is so precious with that look of awe on his face. He’s really discovered something! Hilarious.
this must be how they’re used ON MARS.
This pic is definitely great blackmail material for these two tots later in life.
… and the Cowardly Lion finally found his courage. Priceless pic.
I agree with the poster(s) who said Kotex should revamp their ad campaign – great idea. They can double as toys!
The lion’s claw…hilarious…this made my day, thanks!
My daughter snuck into my bathroom one day while I was still asleep and built a birdhouse out of maxi pads. Fuh-reak-ing hilarious.
It’s that time of month – the beast has come out!
AHAHAHAHAHAH.. I can’t believe it!
My friend’s 3 year old daughter found her mom’s pad stash and put a mini-pad on the outside of her pants and said, “Thanks, mom, you got some in my size!”
This is probley the greatest thing that I have ever seen in my entire life!
the lion, the witch and the….WHAT?
The expression on the little boys face is just priceless- this picture made me laugh!
Certainly looks more fun than leggos
The only awkward thing about this moment is trying to explain what all that stuff is for. Too funny! (Checking to make sure my stash of feminine artillery is safely hidden from view .. be right back …)
“Artillery”, I love it!!!!!!!1
I love the looks on their faces! And I sympathize with them because i thought maxipads were special barbie beds when i was their age.
Barbie beds. That’s hilarious!!!
Kotex needs to see this picture and re-do it’s advertising campaign. So much cheaper to hit the feminine hygiene aisle than Toys-R-Us. Important in today’s economy.
My mom told me (when I was about 3 or 4 years old) that pads were “really big band-aids.” lol
Ugh – my step daughters’ mom says that too. So she thinks that whenever anyone is using one, there is something wrong with them. That’s going to work out well when she gets to that certain age in life.
Nah… she’ll be fine. Sometimes kids ask questions when they’re not quite ready to know the real answer so you explain things to them in a way they can understand for now. A 3 or 4 year old couldn’t possibly grasp the real purpose of pads or tampons. My daughter asked me when she was about 7 and I told her the truth. I had to re-explain it later on and add more details that wouldn’t have sunk in when she was 7 but if she had asked me earlier than that, I’m not sure I wouldn’t have taken the band-aid route, too.
I could just see that 3 or 4 year old asking at a later time though, if someone got hurt really bad, ..mommy, why didn’t you use the really big bandaid?? (Or going to grab it for her and bring it to them in an effort to be ‘helpful’).
Actually, an EMT recommended to me that I keep pads in the first aid kit for serious injuries.
How Carefree children are!
On a serious note – tampons are dangerous if they’re swallowed – they’re designed to expand in a wet/damp environment. One could cut off an airway. I’m just sayin’.
My guess is since obviously it is an adult taking the photograph – they were being supervised. Just sayin’.
And I’m just sayin’ that it would be awfully difficult to swallow a tampon. Or are you speaking from experience Wet Blanket….
Oh don’t be such a wet blanket………wait–
Yeah but they do have those nice pull strings just in case…
Thank you for the laugh!
Wow! Your name really speaks for itself. Very fitting.
My sis in law was about 11, and found her then step moms “little friend” and thought it was a cat toy. She switches it on and the cat starts playing with it as it vibrates across the bed.
Cat pounces and grabs….runs to the window…”little friend” falls out window lands in shrubs still vibrating. <—-my husband told me this story a couple years ago.
Something similar happen to my sister wiith her “cat toy” at the airport, it suddenly started buzzing and humming at security. They opened her suitcase and viola there it was ready to rock and roll!
I don’t think I would ever need a “cat toy” so bad on a trip that I would try to carry one thru airport security.
By the way, she’s 11 now and we definitely have some pictures and stories that we tell her (okay, mostly her dad tells her) that he’s going to tell that to the guys she dates. She turns so red and splutters out…”D-d-don’t you DARE!” and we just laugh!
Awww. I’m 16 and my parents and my 23 year only sister tell the 3 guys i’ve dated everything embarrassing about my past.. it is embarrassing but it actually just gives you more stuff to talk about and share with each other… if the guy actually cares about knowing you..
