It’s cheap too, at only $3.50 a pop. If you’re thinking this is completely harmless, it’s kinda. Okay, so the electric shock it sends isn’t incapacitating but take it from us—there’s enough juice on this baby to electrocute Gramps and unsuspecting house pets.
This “ideal joke and monster toy” is a recommended gift to children who are already showing a keen interest in dispensing justice and preserving the peace. The taser pictured above is being marketed as the Police Electric Baton Shock Tricky Toy. Though the actual product isn’t meant for tots, the fact that anyone would sell a taser for kicks is pretty nuts.
Maybe this is cool for birthday parties and the parents need a good dependable tool for keeping all those screaming younglings in check. According to the online retailer, it does the following:
“-Get an electric shock by touching the baton when you touch the shock button.
-You can either shock to get you moving again or give some annoying persons a strong but harmless shock.
-Reusable and not dangerous if used properly.
-Great for jokes, fun and play.
-Adult shock toy, not for children or elders.
-Built-in flashlight, and it is safe to use if you don’t touch the shock button.
-Voltage: less than 3.6V.”
If you don’t mind getting into a lot of trouble and pranking unsuspecting residents in your neighborhood, this could be a good investment. Heck, go buy a whole box of them and do a Santa by gifting the neighborhood rascals with a bunch, thereby providing the means for them to become a vicious street gang. In that case, taser walking canes anyone?
