Monsters begone



My three-year-old son has had a few problems with monsters arriving in his bedroom uninvited lately.

As parents, we all know monsters only come out at bedtime to lurk in corners and wardrobes and have a knack for only making their appearance as soon as mum or dad step out of the bedroom.

For a short time we had great success in getting rid of monsters with ‘Monster Spray’ (as my three-year-old doesn’t read Babyology, I can tell you the monster spray was a plain pump bottle filled with water). However, there were so many monsters that the carpet in the corners of the bedroom was starting to get somewhat soggy, not to mention the number of shots we were aiming at the wardrobe.

The Monster-Under-the-Bed-Bomb from Petunia Petunia could just save the day. Although a monster bomb may seem a little drastic, it is guaranteed to keep those uninvited guests at bay. Petunia Petunia assures little customers that although the explosion is silent, the results are immediate. I suspect that the Bomb’s all-seeing eye will keep watch on any monsters that try for an encore.

The Monster-Under-the-Bed-Bomb is hand-crocheted and costs US$32. Also available is a Monster-in-the-Closet-Lock so that monsters can’t take up residence in the wardrobes. Petunia Petunia ships to Australia.
