Well, I'm torn on this one. On the one hand, I'm not so keen on the mental picture of one of my kiddos walloping the you-know-what out of a stuffed toy. On the other hand, I remember the mutually satisfying relationship I had with one of those inflatable Bozo the Clown punching toys during my own childhood. What do you think of the Punch 'n' Cuddle? Yay or nay?
Touted as "emotional furniture for kids and kidults" (um, "kidults"?), the Punch 'n' Cuddle is "what you get when you cross a beanbag with a cuddly toy and a punch bag. It invites and demands physical and expressive interaction."
Also known as the aforementioned punching and cuddling.
The Punch 'n' Cuddle is still in production, but when it hits the marketplace it will be made of cotton and bamboo and will be available in three sizes.
