Hello to all,a little dismayed at a gift my son got recently,i shall get to that very shortly.
We are anti corporation,especially food corps mainly the fast food giants,but still to make scones our flour is purchased from a major corp,sometimes
you cant escape them.
Our remote rural location makes it a bit easier to avoid the large fast food giants,its a long drive to the golden arch's.
We have all seen the in your face ad's from these company's targeting your children with toys and gimmicks to sell fat loaded food,at least its in
But what about when it becomes sneaky?lets discuss.
My son recently got a uberstix scavenger series set,it comes with some bits and pieces to make models that work and the idea is to recycle things from
around the home to complete the model.
I thought what a brilliant idea,a fantastic toy teaching kids recycling,building etc etc.
Right up our ally,an alternative learning toy/model,we are thinking top stuff should be more toys like this.
Few days later me and the young fella decided to have a look and start building the model,we were met by an instant roadblock upon reading the
instructions, we couldnt even start it.
You see some things from around the home are needed,but some main components needed are from the major food giants.
It may be as simple as a drinking straw,for us to obtain this straw,we have the choice of three options.
Go thru rubbish to find one.
Drive an hour to obtain one from the store.
Maybe another straw may do the trick,but its hard to find the fatter type required.
It is only a straw something else will suffice,but i now want to read you word for word the list of bits you need,i found a link with it on that i
will provide so i dont have to scan the list.
Uberstix scavenger recycling series
6-Push-ups (R) Icecream pops
2 Plastic coffee stir sticks
1 plastic grocery bag
1 Large Starbucks (R) straw
1 Mc Donald's (R) straw
10 Paper clips
Scotch (R) tape
2 Popsicle (R) sticks
So the companys involved here in order as they appear above
Starbucks us brands llc
Mc Donald's corporation
Now i ask why.Why have these kits been designed to fit these particular items.
Iam sure i can find other bits to suit eventually,but the way these kits are set out its like they are promoting these corporations.
Uberstix is owned by Dane Scarborough,formally Dane Rage a drummer turned inventor.A very very smart man,a family man,but a globalist BIG TIME.
Altho i have not found direct links with these companys and Scarborough,he is very well placed among the corporate elite,a very impressive corporate
background.I have no doubt a little deal has been done over lunch time drinks.
Why call for a Popsicle (R) stick,when just a normal wooden ice cream- icy pole stick will do?
Why call for Scotch tape (R) when any sticky tape will do?
Step,No 1 on the instruction sheet is a picture of a push pop ice cream,not the part you need from the finished ice cream,the whole ice cream, as soon
as my three children saw it, "I want one of those Daddy".
Smells a bit on the fishy side to me,research has not given me much,what do you guys think??
Wiki link,Dane Rage
Link to the toy iam talking about with a review.In the top left hand corner is the list i speak of,click on it to enlarge it but will place its link
Link to an article on Scarborough,he dont mind sending your jobs to china,all good for profits.
