Who Lives in a Pineapple and Takes Your Temp?

Sbsp_musical_therm_pkgI’m not a big fan of licensed products, but here’s one I might actually try: The Musical SpongeBob Digital Thermometer from BD (12 to $16) makes temp-taking a lot less intimidating for toddlers and preschoolers. It takes just 9 seconds to record a temperature readout, and plays the well-loved (by kids anyway) theme song to the show when it’s done. My 3-year-old daughter is always worried that the pointy thermometer is going to hurt, to a point where we often cut our losses by using a painless (but generally less accurate) ear thermometer. But I’m guessing she’ll trust SpongeBob, even if she doesn’t trust Daddy. Thanks to Daddy Types.

    Oh, this is too funny. I agree it’s a good idea. But humorist Dave Barry found it amusing for and posted comments on his blog yesterday. Make sure you visit this site for a great laugh: http://www.cartoonbrew.com/cartoon-culture/spongebob-rectal-thermometer
