I feel sorry for Spiderman and Ben 10 at the moment, I really do. Millions of little kids are pooing and peeing on their faces everyday. Don’t think I am joking, I am serious. Have a look at these.
My son is totally crazy about anything Spiderman or Ben 10 at the moment. Toothbrush, towel, socks, shoes, sandals, clothes, hat, sunnies, watch, figurines, cars, bike – you name it, he has got it. While I understand this whole line of super powered merchandise to seduce our kids, and thus make us part with hard-earned cash, I just find it hilarious that they choose to include undies as well. Underwear for older boys is ok I guess, but for the ones who are just leaving their nappies behind, I mean come on!
I have got ones that say ‘ages 2-3’. And what is one significant thing that happens roundabout that age? The joyful toilet training. I am literally drowning in these undies at the moment. In my house, there is a whole line of little undies drying, every single day. My little one is obsessed with these and the only way he allows me to put him in underwear is when he looks down he sees the smiling faces of.. yes Spidy and Ben 10. And I am forever chasing him with gems like ‘oh we mustn’t make Spiderman wet. If only these had magical powers as well. Long live Ben 10 undies!!
Anyway, it’s not easy being a super hero. Just ask these guys.
