(Not so) Wordless Wednesday - Turtle


This turtle came to us from my dad (THANKS DAD) years ago on a visit. It is meant to sit in a garden and make noise as one walks past. I love that he gave us something, but can't help but he gave this away a little too willingly. I was soon to learn why once I heard the things after activating the motion sensor. Needless to say that N was 4 and the time and LOVED IT. I soon got tired of listening to it, but we don't see my dad often so will be keeping it as it is one of the few things the kids have gotten in person. It now lives inside as it used to be outside the door and then someone took it. N was distraught when it went missing, but don't worry surprisingly it showed up a couple months later. N was so happy it was back (as was I, really) I have a theory that a kid in our complex took and once the parent A) found out they did so they were told to return it or B) same sort of idea as A except it was returned after a parent walking past it one too many times and finally asked the kid where it came from.


Needless to say it remains in the off position the majority of the time if left up to me..especially now that the battery is almost drained and the poor thing sounds like it is dying....

  1. heehee.. we have a motion turtle as well that is, um... annoying when it's activated. It's neatly tucked away in storage now that we're "homeless" and I'm not really missing it ;)

  7. Who would steal someone's turtle? People are crazy. I'm just starting to learn that the noise-making toys lose their cuteness very quickly!
