"Lori, look at that! How is he doing that?!?" Bart exclaimed more to himself than to me.
"It's a string, Bart. Like a fishing line." I replied.
"For only $8.99 you can own your own wiggle worm! It's super easy, and the magic is explained in your own set of instructions you will receive. With a little practice you can pull off these amazing tricks! Your friends will be AMAZED!" The worm-man interceded.
"No way that's fishing line, Lori. Look how fast that thing is moving! He trapped it in a glass and it still is wiggling. I don't see a string!" Bart countered back.
"That's because it's dim in this tent. I'm telling you....it's a string." I said a tad more forcibly this time.
We continued on with our shopping, but I could tell he was already hooked. On our way back to the parking lot, we stopped and bought the $8.99 worm. As we walked away from the tent Bart ripped open the package and skimmed the instructions.
"So?" I asked.
Bart stopped in his tracks and his mouth set in a tight little line. "I don't want to talk about it." He stated.
QVC is his vice.
Every year for Christmas we buy each kiddo a QVC toy. Bart LOVES the hunt. "Lori, this one could be it. Look at this! It's free shipping if we order now.....should we do it?"
I must admit, the QVC toys have not disappointed. Here are our favorite finds:
So, our home has its share of "As Seen on TV" items. Most of them we love. A miss that we have encountered? The Bullet.
I used to laugh at the madness. "Awe, bless his little cotton-pickin heart. Here we go again." However, that was before I met the Turbie Twist. I now have no room to talk or judge.
I now own 3 Turbie Twists. Momma gets cranky if she has to use a regular towel.
So, this year at The Covered Bridge Festival we toted along both of our boys. We let them pick out 1 item each year. Drew scoured many booths in search of the perfect item. As we were getting ready to leave, we had to make one last stop. Drew darted into the booth and emerged carrying a small brown bag.
"What did you get?" I asked.
I was overcome with pride for my little Wade man. That's my boy.... *tear*
So, fess up. What "As Seen on TV" or QVC products have you tried?
