Update: as noted in the comments, this story is apparently 5-years-old. However, I'd never read it before (and am guessing that I'm not the only one), so I figured it was worth leaving up for a laugh.
A Harry Potter broomstick...that vibrates?
I'm not entirely sure why anyone thought a vibrating broomstick would be more magical than one that wasn't battery-operated, but -- as girls across the US are quickly discovering -- it can certainly be more fun. So fun, in fact, that parents have started complaining to Mattel, saying that their girls are disappearing with the broomstick for hours on end -- enjoying its "special effects."
While it may be true that the toy has "a grooved stick and handle for easy riding," I can see why it's not a big hit with moms and dads who'd prefer it if their bathrooms weren't occupied 24 hours a day.
