WHY do they call it a TIDDY bear?  Yes, I get that it's a play on "Teddy Bear," but you can't tell me they aren't trying to call it a "titty" bear (God, how I hate that word).  They had to spell the damned thing out, because they KNOW what it sounds like.

It's a good idea for a product, but the name sucks.

WOW does that name suck.
 
Sure it's a cute idea, I guess... but ladies wouldn't you feel like an idiot if you someone you knew saw you driving around with that thing on?  They couldn't miss it, seeing that the thing is bright orange.
 
Beyond that: they're marketing it to kids (or moms who drive kids and buy stuff for them).  You can get 2 for $15.  That means the cost per Tiddy is $7.50. 
 
It's essentially a beanie baby knockoff, with a snapping strap sewn on to it.  Considering the labor and expected profit, that original bear might be they kind you can get for a dollar, or win at a carnival throwing stuff through empty toilet seats.  Anyway - I would venture a guess that the Tiddy Bear's eyes and nose pose a choking hazard to children under 3, not meeting JPMA guidelines; which means it's only a matter of time before they are forced take it off the market.
 
Get 'em while you can.
 
Or not.
 
Let's try not to be boring, mkay?

Yep like PA said, we had this post on the other board. I think I am actually the one who started it. I am pretty sure I started one about it. Sometimes, you how it goes, when this board gets fired up good, a topic can go off the front page QUICK!!! Then someone esle will start another post on the same subject. LOL Seems to be the norm. My wife actually bought a pad for her shoulder strap. She laughed hard when she say this friggin thing.
AW DAMN!!!! Wild Shot the friggin TV again!!!
