Non-Breakable Products Please Apply

I'm beginning to think that Zachary's future is looking strong to be a product tester for 'how durable really is this product'.


If there is ANY way, shape, or form that a toy or other expensive product} can be broken, he is sure to find it for you in under five minutes flat.

We got the repair bill for our digital camera the other day and right now the big question is whether or not it's even worth repairing ~ or just upgrading to another camera. The bill was that lovely.

I came home from a trip with Rick to find that we have another broken Leapster courtesy of you-know-who.


Any toy companies looking for help? I have a very willing and able 5 year old to test durability of products. And he works quickly too!


  1. Your five year-old and my three year-old could start a business together!

  2. Glad to know my boys aren't the only ones!!! Books are torn to pieces in days (we are down to the second half of Goodnight Moon, thank goodness I memorized the first part!) And toys, electronics, tools, flashlights, all broken... I feel your pain!

  3. I am thinking that Mr. 5 year old needs things taken away from him until he can show he is ready to handle them appropriately. That is what happens around my house!

  4. Jolanthe,

    You just never know which toy company may just take you up on that offer. As parents, we would honestly love to buy toys that truly last. I just bought my nephew at Tonka trunk, the old fashion ones still made of metal! Crossing my fingers that that one lasts.

  5. Yikes about the camera. Usually it's just cheaper to buy a new one. I'm not sure what kind you had, but I've seen several good deals on digital cameras on Black Friday ads.

  6. Hmmm...there is something to be said for having only solid oak wooden toys, then?

  7. Oh no! You poor thing! Poor camera...

    what ended up being wrong with it? Is it something that you could possibly sell to someone that could fix it or use it for parts and get some $$ for a new one?

    That sucks so badly....
