    Americans are being spoon-fed almost everything because we aren’t smart enough to figure things out on our own. It’s a sad thing.

    I’m guessing the kids would want to get into that bag themselves. Kids are curious little creatures.

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

    Just like most things these days, someone who knew better but was too lazy to be a parent let their child be in the bag and then the kid got hurt and then the parents sued because there should have been a warning to not put a kid in the bag. This is always a hot issue to me, like the parents who sued bumbo because their kid who was left unattended in the seat that was on top of a table toppled off the table and onto the floor, injuring the kid in the incident. Drives me crazy that people can’t responsibility for their actions and instead sue anyone and everyone they can to avoid it!

    See, now that the warning is there I would have to tell my children they couldn’t go in there and spoil all their fun. Just kidding.
    Typical sue happy America. Need to have a warning on everything.

    Actually, I bet my daughter would beg to ride in the bag lol. Sadly, we see parents doing stupid things like this on a daily basis. It wouldn’t surprise me the number of parents who probably did put their child in the bag.

    You know how kids can be demanding and moms tend to give in! That’s the problem, kids don’t get used to hearing the word, “No.” And “No” often has no consequences. We don’t invite parents over with kids who run wild. It keeps us sane that way. 🙂

    Just think about the conversation the product people had as they were developing it. “Do you think there needs to be a sign here? You know some people might try to put their kids in the bag. You know, like little kids who could fit. Babies? Small babies?”

    That is just nuts. I can think of 50 other signs that should be posted that aren’t Let’s assume they know some mothers that don’t properly watch their children when shopping. That is funny though. Thanks for sharing.

    As strange as this warning may seem there must be a reason why it is there. It may be that this bag offers children a chance to play hide and seek but one would think that as a parent one would not stuff a child in this bag on purpose.
