It's a Cards Diaspora holiday tradition: the 12 Days of Cardinals Crapmas, where we find the worst items that someone might be tempted to gift. All previous days are linked at the bottom of this post.
Toys generally don't make any sense.
Some cursory research reveled that this Christmas parents were fighting over the following: Fultterbye Pink Flying Flower Fairy, Furby Boom, Nerf Rebelle Heartbreaker Bow Blaster, The Gross Electronic Talking Puppet… and my personal favorite, the First Royal Talking Vanity.
Why you crush American dreams KATE!
So to see some pretty innocent Cardinal figurines packaged together, it was what it was. Pretty vanilla. Likely to make a kid happy for 10 minutes before they want to play on the iPad again.
Then I looked closer.
Is that a freaking umpire? Is that really part of the three pack? I mean, I was a pretty big baseball fan as a kid and never, EVER, did I want to play with an umpire doll.
At the very least this should be marketed as a 2 pack with a bonus umpire. But in no way can you call it a Cardinals three pack and include the umpire in the three.
