Pharting is FUN!!

Sometimes you just gotta let loose...
Sometimes you just gotta laugh...
Sometimes its the silly things in life that make a moment awesome...

Can I tell you, a Pharting (farting in case you didn't realize I'm trying to be ladylike) Elephant named Norman came to live at our house, and he's been the humor in our days at times. The story behind Norman PhartEphant is that Norman is an African elephant that was adopted by a US zoo, and due to some dietary changes, he's damn gassy!!

Of course when Norman arrived, it was an instant laugh riot, Boug was laughing so hard she was crying and I was laughing right along with her. Lil' Buddy thinks that Norman's trunk is the perfect chew toy, but as little boys especially will, he'll think that the pharting is hilarious.

Fierce Fun Toys came out with Norman PhartEphant after realizing that Wall St. isn't all that there is to life. She's right and its true. There's gotta be fun in your life and there's got to be humor, or else you'll never survive!! Even on some of my bad mood days lately, Boug will oh-so-inconspicuously walk through the living room and step on Norman's tail to let one rip and make me laugh! My grandmother, with her wacky sense of humor, loves Norman, and is mad that she retired cause she wants to bring him to her old job!! This is the lady who brought fake poo with her to work too......

Norman is such a fun guy, a great gift and just a joy to have in our household. He fits in just like one of my own pharty kids!! You can pick up a Norman of your own at the website!! And I can't forget that Norman is a good guy, him and Fierce Fun Toys donate to SmileTrain.org, HalfTheSky.org, and Ronald McDonald House Charities!

Want to lighten up your life with a Norman PhartEphant?? Head over to the site and tell Fierce Fun Toys about a great toy store that should carry Norman!! No big box stores please, your favorite Mom & Pop toy store!! Leave a comment here telling me what you wrote in the "why this is a great toy store:" section of the form!!

I recommended Toys Etc. in La Jolla, CA. I said that since they are a specialty toy store, Norman is definitely one!

I wrote: This is a great toy store because it's unique & educational toys. They also pride themselves in selling non-violent toys. Most toys are displayed out of the box so you can try them before you buy! This would be a great place for Norman!

I recommended Beverly's Hallmark where I get all my daughters webkinz toys. They sell a small selection of stuffed animals there, and it's a great place for the last minute party gift-Norman, the card and the wrapping paper/gift bag can all be found in the same place!

I wrote a brief comment about how it was a nice, clean store that had a variety of common and unique toys for all ages

A great toy store for this to be sold at would be Growing Tree in State College, PA. Thanks.

I don't have a Mom & Pop toy store near me that I know of but if I did I would recommend they carry Norman the Phartephant because he is cute and a stuffed elephant that farts would be a hit in any toy store!

Colleen June 14, 2009 at 12:22 AM  

I recommended Let's Play in Hillsboro Oregon.

I recommended Funtoysia in Reading, PA. I said "They have a wonderful selection, great prices, and is such a fun place to spend a few hours browsing."

butterpies June 15, 2009 at 1:14 AM  

I wrote "The selection of toys and their high quality."

Melissa O. June 15, 2009 at 2:11 PM  

I recommended Kidkadoo in Richmond VA because they have toys that you can't get at big corporate toy stores and they have wonderful gifts there.

Sarah Z June 15, 2009 at 9:40 PM  

Village Toymaker because they have unique products!
Thanks

I suggested a store in an outdoor mall here inmy city. I suggested it because it is a small store that my kids enjoy going into and playing with their toys. It is also in a tourist area.

I left a comment and I told them that the store was a unique specialty store and that it's in a summer tourist area.
