Sure, you’ve probably threatened to give away your kids’ toys in a moment of frustration, but would you actually ever do it?
One mom was so incensed about her sons’ spinning Beyblade toys wrecking her bathtub, to the tune of $500 in repairs, that she put the offending playthings up for sale on eBay. Accompanying the listing is a heart-breaking photo of one of her sons in tears while holding the toys, and a description of the behavior that lead her to auction them off. After bidding spun out of control, the mom took the listing down. No word on where the destructive toys ended up.
