I have taken a book that my toddler ripped a page on and took a week to tape the page because I was tired of reading it 6 times a day everyday

Lol, no. But I have let toys' batteries go dead and not replaced them. Told the kids that it must have stopped working. That little trick only works when kids are very young, though.

The goddamned lawn mower popper toy had a tragic accident and had to go to the toy hospital for a few days.

Yeah... I did this all the time. Some of the more annoying ones... I didn't even wait for the batteries to die, I just took them out. However, my kids didn't catch on until much later. They were horrified that I did such a thing. lol

Oh hell yeah.

DD had this one monkey that had one of those voice box things in it. She loved that fucking thing. So one night I'm up, it's like 4 am (I work night shift so on my nights off I'm still on that schedule) and this fucking monkey starts in all "oooh, oooh, ah, ah." Scared the ever living fuck out of me.

A couple days later, DD put it in the lazy suzan in the kitchen, I'm making fucking spaghetti and all i hear is "oooh, oooh, ah, ah" as I go to get some pasta sauce. I swear, that fucking monkey.

I put it in the donation box last month. She got the whole set of plush Doc McStuffins dolls as a replacement. None of those fuckers talk.

Mine may need to go too, they always try to play with that thing while I'm trying to have a damn conversation with someone!
