‘Beyblades’ destroy tub: Mom sells kids' toys on eBay as punishment

Used to be, kids were made to take a timeout when they acted up, or maybe even a spanking. But now, parents have other options, like selling their treasured toys on eBay as punishment.

One mom, fed up with her boys' fancy spinning tops and how they wrecked her bathtub, decided to gather the offending tops — the popular Japanese manga Beyblade toy — and put them on eBay. She even posted a picture of her sons, one clearly in tears, while the younger one has a mug shot look, resigned to his fate, as he holds up the zip lock bag of Beyblades to present to the buying public. (See image above.) STORY HERE

Something to consider: Beyblades are supposed to be played with in a little arena provided for that purpose. The instructions clearly state this. Where was Mom when they were making a racket (they had to be) in the bathroom? How long did it take for the damage to show up? I suspect Mom should have watched her sons a little closer…

My son has those toys and they are LOUD in the plastic arena, no doubt they'd be REALLY loud in a bathtub. The mother should be punished.

If they did what she said they did that would have taken like 30 minutes to do that much damage. How did she not hear that? I don't know... maybe she was listening to the tv all the way up and head phones on blaring music!!!!
