Fun slides! Fun slides! Fun slides!

I have these, there not that good :(
I must have them.
i used a pair once. i slid into a table and almost broke my toe.
More fun than socks!
Im impressed by how long that guy held his enthusiastic voice
I think with your fears of "hole in the head" and broken bones your assuming that these things actually slide on carpet... I'm thinking that they probably go a few feet before petering out, so your fun lasts about as long as the average scene in this cartoon, about 2 seconds
New questions pop up every time I watch this:
How did it get any seal of approval anywhere?
Are there really pro- or semipro funsliders anywhere?
How much do they charge for that "slide rail"?
The one question, I have the answer for is "Where they take you". Not outside the house, that's for sure. Great way to keep your children locked in the house without them noticing that they're trapped.
when they say "no-where to run?" in the beginning, are they insinuating that running can be used as a form of entertainment and not just as torture?
That was awesome, I'm so inspired to get that now.
tupperware lunchbox / cookies baked by Nika + shoes = homemade fun-slides >_>
btw the only reason to buy fun-slides is to also buy a sheet of metal and some carpet to make a cheap hometrainer(you know, those conveyor belts you run on)
Once I straped on some plastic bags around my feet and had the funest slide of my life.
It gets even funer if you use some lubricant. But your mom might object..
SOCKS ON FLOORBOARDS! SOCKS ON FLOORBOARDS! it won't cost you $15 and the only place you can get enough speed to have fun in is a hallway wich has no furniture, also everyone keeps talking about fractures and hemmorages and that kind of thing, what about realy nasty carpet burns.
If we are all talking about them than the commercial has done its job to inform people even if the people think its utterly stupid and just a piece plastic straped to the bottom of your feet.
I think someone should buy them and then try the same thing with strong tuber ware container lids.
My friend has these...they dont stay on your feet whatsoever
I think it looks pretty fun.... Okay that sounded a little bit TOO immature. But still if they didn't make it look fun they wouldn't sell any now would they?
I wish i was a pro fun slider..
I have tile floor
Now all that I need to do is upholster my skatepark...
THe amazing carpet skates that glide, slide, or make you crash into the wooden banister, causing fractures and scrapes that haemorrhage, and you to fall down at least a story onto the hard floor below! Fun slides!
note the house they demonstrate in has no furniture...
I haven't seen this commercial in a while now that I think of it.
*prays the company was shut down by angry parents and their now crippled children*
Not the worst idea, but the commercial is fail.
Wow, they look real safe! With in ten minutes i would be in the ER or snaping or bruising a limb! But why would you really want them. You go ten feet then you would "smack" you head in something! And grinding on these plastic things? You would get a a concussion!
i agree with nika.
i would have this toy for approx. 10 seconds before my mom took it away because i left my faceprint in the wall.
DANCE LIKE A MANIAC!
But walk down the stairs... lol
Oh wait you guys think this is stupid? err.... how do you return internet orders?
There are actually pro's at this featured on the DVD. No wonder we'll always be in debt.
THAT's the sad part???
top, hook and loop is just the "i'm not gettign sued for using velcro's name" velcro. it's all the same, velcro doesn't own the rights to the product anymore, just their name.
one othe rnote: i don't know aboutyou, but i have tons of carpet covered blocks of wood scattered around my house just waiting to be slid down.
"As a special bonus, we'll include a Fun Slide Skips And Tricks DVD that also includes bonus features of pro and semi-pro Fun Sliders getting extreme!" Nobody knows a pro or a semi-pro Fun Slider that can get extreme on this ****! It just doesn't exist! Would you want your 4 year old to jump off a roof top with his Fun Slide? If you do, film it and send it to youtube, I want to see that.
Hook and loop, not velcro = cheap
This is an accident waiting to happen
Where can I get them!
But guys, they have the National Parenting Assossiation seal of approval!
That means they must be safe AND fun!
Come on, guys, let's strap on and fun slide!!!
Plastic shoes? I'd rather get my gaping wound on my forehead (and maybe other places, like my shin) while trying to land a trick on my skateboard than slipping on a piece of plastic. It'll leave me with more dignity.
i think i saw this on tv a few days ago...my biggest question was "why the hell is that kid using his funslides OUTSIDE to slide that rail? wait...isn't that going to stain the carpet once he decides to strap on back inside?" then i shot myself in the eye for thinking about this commerical.
Have fun sliding to ER with a gaping wound on your forehead after you realize fun slides don't have brakes.
I think people would buy a plastic bag if only it was a "strapon! strap-on! STRAP ON!"...
"Constructed of friction 'defying' super smooth plastic..." has got to be the best line in that commercial.
Bastian, I agree that you can't make plastic shoes and market it as a toy.
I love how they repeatedly refer to it as a 'strap on'. Other than that, yeah, I gotta agree w/ bastian on this one. People are stupid, and they'll buy almost anything, but they're not THAT stupid.
They almost look like as much fun as... what's that thing... Skateboards?
Just because you name a product "fun-something" it doesn't make it more than a piece of plastic strapped to your foot.
