Rejected ThinkGeek Product #443

From time to time, the merchandiser-monkeys here get shipped a product that is so fantastically awful, we feel compelled to show you, our loyal and wonderful customers, how we take steps to protect you from what we affectionately like to call "crap."

Behold - the latest in inexplicably bizarre product samples sent to us for consideration. We are only happy to step into the line-of-fire for you so you don't have to experience such wonderfulness. This telephone stand reacts to your phone's ringing with a serenade of beeps and boops that is supposed to pass as music as well as a loud grinding noise, just in case you don't hear the "song". Precisely why this doodad was designed in the shape of a Ferris wheel, and why it plays "Rock-A-Bye-Baby," is completely lost to us.



So we know how relieved you must feel now that we are protecting you from the dangers of  bizarre products. You're welcome.

meaningless icon! That is just too weird. I guess if you were to serenade a zombie baby to bed that would a be wonderful noise.

meaningless icon! Wow...
macoronikevin said this 2123 days ago.
meaningless icon! I kind of like it - it's so dorky. I wouldn't spend money on though, or want to have to dust it.
Melbahead said this 2123 days ago.
meaningless icon! Why rock a bye baby? That combined with the grinding noise is quite disturbing...A lullaby though? Really???!!
Rainbocow said this 2123 days ago.
meaningless icon! Wow. That's the most ridiculous thing I've seen all day.
Someonetookmyname said this 2122 days ago.
meaningless icon! The sacrifices you make for us are astounding indeed.
EVula said this 2122 days ago.
meaningless icon! That is so much fail, even failcats are ashamed.
Azuris said this 2122 days ago.
meaningless icon! BOOP BOOP BOOO DOO BOO BOOP So odd... I want one, but I won't pay for it. Send it to me!
Dash said this 2122 days ago.
meaningless icon! Hahahaha!! Awesome.
Buzzstein said this 2122 days ago.
meaningless icon! Watch closely and you'll see that one of the little balloon carts doesn't even fall when its suppose to lol. It stays sticking up.
Dirtch said this 2122 days ago.
meaningless icon! I have the sudden urge to attack it with a titanium spork......
Twilightspath said this 2122 days ago.
meaningless icon! wtf that is the most worthless thing i have ever seen
Smurf It All said this 2122 days ago.
meaningless icon! That's probably the worst thing I've seen in 2008. lol.
Nemephosis said this 2122 days ago.
meaningless icon! Just that thing being out there on the market it one more thing to support my dislike (HATE) of the IPhone.
HiddenFromEyes said this 2121 days ago.
meaningless icon! dude ftw... I wanted to put that thing in the microwave and watch it melt when the carriage stopped moving...
will-wtf said this 2120 days ago.
meaningless icon! Oh, don't worry, HiddenFromEyes -- this bit of e-waste is fully compatible with your G1, too.
Jacob said this 2120 days ago.
meaningless icon! Jacob, I wish I had a G1, sadly T-Mobile does not get service in the town I live. You can't even buy one in our local best buy. What about HTC's Diamond?
HiddenFromEyes said this 2120 days ago.
meaningless icon! This is absolutely brilliant in its lunacy.
Technetium said this 2119 days ago.
meaningless icon! Certainly not something I want for myself, but as I was watching the video, my 8 yo grandgeek wandered by. "That's cool," he said...
Nana Geek B.95 said this 2119 days ago.
meaningless icon! Honestly, the weirdest thing about that is that it is a supplement for your phone ringer. Forget the ferris wheel, the grinding noise, the broken cart, or even rock-a-bye baby. I just think its weird that it rings along with the iphone from a dock. Honestly WTF. Why why why?
Ryuki said this 2118 days ago.
meaningless icon! I want one!! Where can I get it!?!!
Guashiman said this 2118 days ago.
meaningless icon! strange and even weird...no thanks, but thanks for thinking of us.
HELONURS said this 2118 days ago.
meaningless icon! I secretly want it. Maybe y'all could auction off the bad ideas you receive to a secret cabal of loyalists (including myself of course).
peatswift said this 2118 days ago.
meaningless icon! ugh. I'm at uni with headphones, and i didn't realise the sound was on full volume. =O is that blood on my headphones?
MarkdV said this 2118 days ago.
meaningless icon! (FLAME ON)i love that product but like i have previously read in the different comments, i would not pay a lot of money for that (FLAME OFF)
hack master said this 2117 days ago.
meaningless icon! that was...scary...
Smoke353 said this 2116 days ago.
meaningless icon! Oh my ... that is about all I can think to say at the moment. Oh my ...
Princess Leia said this 2112 days ago.
meaningless icon! Wow. I want one just for the WTF factor. That is the weirdest thing I have seen all day.
Tazzy said this 2112 days ago.
meaningless icon! I dont get it.
jedijames said this 2111 days ago.
meaningless icon! Competition for the title of Stupidest Thing I've Seen In Recent Memory -- I truly cannot decided between the above Rock-a-Bye-Baby thingie and the following Treadmill On Wheels (er... huh?) (an exercise machine, so not really up ThinkGeek's alley, but still, mind-bogglingly stupid): www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0gsaDxK884
Swobbie said this 2111 days ago.
meaningless icon! I just have to wonder if it is SUPPOSED to make the grinding noise, or if something is wrong with the motor, gears, etc, in that particular sample. I mean, they can't have really INTENDED it to be that horrifically bad... can they?
DaddyBean said this 2110 days ago.
meaningless icon! Er...the only reason I can think of for using Rock-A-Bye Baby is that maybe because it is a "cradle" for the phone. Not that it justifies the total creepiness of this thing.
aifacat said this 2110 days ago.
meaningless icon! omgwtf that would be the sould that would fit into a zombie/scary movie. u know when it gets all quiet and then the zombie girl comes out and kills someone... 0_o
SCORE said this 2108 days ago.

l33tg33k said this 2099 days ago.
meaningless icon! When it comes to things like these, I always wonder whose brilliant ideas they are come to life. Whoever thought of this could have been the subject of a python sketch. "MY BRAIN HURTS!!"
Calvinandhobbes said this 2099 days ago.
meaningless icon! *idea* Why not put all 443 failed prototypes on ebay just for the laugh of seeing who bids!
VPN said this 2097 days ago.
meaningless icon! ^ That's actually not a bad idea if you guys still have them. After all, somebody bought a computer off of ebay with a giant bullet hole in it with the description "Like used! Slightly shotgunned!" probably just because it was an homage to a strong bad email.
Calvinandhobbes said this 2096 days ago.
meaningless icon! someone needs to strap that thing to a big firecracker and set it off. Im serious
NinjaWithATitaniumSpork said this 2072 days ago.
meaningless icon! They should use that to torture terroists. or kill zombies. or to torture sombie terrorists so that they kill themselves.
varjoby said this 2056 days ago.
meaningless icon! BRRRRAAAAAAAIIIIIIINNNNNNSSSSSS *music starts* AHHHHHHHHHHH *death* but really why would somebody invent such a thing.
Psychogeek said this 2034 days ago.
meaningless icon! oh man...i want 1..altho i'd cut in an audio switch. maybe even a remote and flick it on to get "guest" outta bed.
