Parents would do almost anything to make sure their toddlers are happy and entertained.
After all, an unhappy toddler is also a noisy one who is also apt to throw tantrums and make parents wonder why they even considered having kids in the first place.
A lot of companies have capitalized on this almost desperate need for parents to keep their children happy by coming up with all sorts of brightly-colored and creative designs for toys, accessories and practically any sort of knick-knack that might get the attention of kids.
One company named Savers has its own unique take on this by offering a hand wash that plays the Baby Shark tune every time you pump it. The company likely thought that it would make baby bath time more enjoyable and musical but one mother who bought the thing apparently got fed up with the Baby Shark tune that she ended up throwing out the hand wash out the bathroom window.
Writing about her experience in the Facebook group The Mother Load, Darlene Roxanne Barnish, from Stoke-on-Trent, even shared a picture of the offending hand wash which had landed in her back garden.
She captioned the photo with: “Had enough of this s*** already! Don’t recommend.”
Fellow group members who were all too familiar with the EXTREMELY catchy Baby Shark tune were quick to sympathize with Darlene’s reaction.
One of them jokingly replied: “I thought you meant parenthood!”
Another mom had actually purchased a Trolls version and wrote: “The Trolls one nearly pushed me over the edge when heavily pregnant and peeing a million times a night.
Savers featured their new product through a video in the company’s Instagram account. The post got over 2,000 views as well as numerous comments from mothers eager to get their hands on one.
One wrote, “Got to get this” while another added, “Kids would love this!”
Of course, it’s easy to be all excited based on the promotional video but once they’ve experienced the product for a few days, there’s no guarantee that the other moms won’t react the same way Darlene did.
In any case, Baby Shark itself won’t be going away any time soon and in fact, there’s news that it will be made into an animated series.
Starting off as a simple sing-along on the Pinkfong YouTube channel, the catchy tune has racked up over 3 billion views. Its continued popularity has apparently convinced TV executives that it’s worth turning into a TV series.
Pinkfong will work together with Nickelodeon to develop the story which seeks to expand on Baby Shark’s world.
Ramsey Naito, executive vice president of Nickelodeon Animation, said, “Baby Shark has captured the imagination of millions of fans around the world, so it’s no surprise it’s one of the top 10 most-viewed videos on YouTube ever.”
While no release date has been announced, fans likely won’t need to wait long before they can finally enjoy delving more into Baby Shark’s world.
