Amazon's 'comments' system strikes again. Who'd have thought that an innocent(!) childs toy would make such a talking point? Read the customer reviews and see wether or not you'd buy this toy for your kids. Harry Potter, it seems, is just as pleasurable for adults as children.

Here's the most pertinent review in the comments for the Harry Potter Nimbus 2000...

This toy was #1 on my daughter's Christmas list. So what the heck, although it has no educational value I figured it would be good for imaginative play. It wasn't until after she opened her gift and started playing with it that I realized that the toy may offer a more than sensational experience. The broomstick has cute sound effects and ***VIBRATES*** when they put it between their legs to fly. Come on---what were the creators of this toy thinking? She'll keep playing with the Nimbus 2000, but with the batteries removed.

Imaginative play, eh?
