A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words.


This just seems...wrong...somehow.  Maybe it's just me.  Opportunistic advertising?

I guess it's fine for a doctor's office play area... but... I would be mad, mad, mad if they pulled that in a school! How often do they have those drug company pens and paper and clocks etc. for the doctors? At least the kids get something out of it... maybe that is just me being opportunistic...

I'd llike valium coated suckers for the parents. Never did care to take a child to the Dr.

I agree on the valium coated suckers! Those blocks are terrible. Bad taste all the way around.

At least they don't say "Because of this med, your kid can sit and play with them." Still...tacky.

My, my... it looks like someone is taking early education to a whole new level! Why teach pre-schoolers to read words like 'cat' or 'fun' when you can teach them words like 'risperdal'. No doubt the grade 1 sight-reading list includes: 'methamphetamine' and 'benzoylmethylecgonine'.

Why does Risperdal or Ritalin need to waste money on marketing anyway- they already have professional drug-dealers writing RX's for every child who can't sit still in the waiting room. I guess lollypops and stickers got old. The "valium coated suckers" for parents on the otherhand is genius!
