A Perpetual Energy Source


So I’d been meaning to do a cartoon on how if someone gives your kid a V-Tech toy, they probably hate you. But then V-Tech was kind enough to share one of my comics, and I felt bad. But seriously, any toddler toy that includes the word “tech” in the name is code for “this is going to make a shit-ton of obnoxious noise.” Oh, and also, the batteries will never die. A friend of mine got my son this adorable moving turtle for his birthday, and the battery died sooner than his more terrible toys. Like this flashlight. Whenever we do clean up time, I inevitably bump it in his toy box. Which means it starts singing, and my son is reminded of its existence, and therefore he MUST play with it right at that second. Or sometimes it’ll go off for no reason at all. If you look at this funny it starts flashing and singing.

But I’m lazy, and I feel bad about throwing out toys, so it stays, and I continue to wait out the batteries’ lifespan.
