Reviews - What do customers think about Extra Ordinary Objects 2 (Icons Series)?

Bought the first, had to buy the second!  Apr 15, 2004
Of course I'm going to buy the two books together, the first one was so interesting!

On the cover, shows some Petrodex, which is toothpaste for dogs, something that I actually used in the past! It gives some useful information that not everyone knows, which is: if you don't brush your dogs teeth often, it can lead to gum---AND heart disease. If you buy them toothpaste, don't forget to buy "music for healthy pets," which has a cute puppy on the cover. The Japanese veterinarian Norio Aoki claims that, "Cheerful but serene music is good for dogs and romantic music is good for cats." I wonder how he found that out. Keeping with the pet theme, don't forget "Thirsty Dog!" It's a pet drink in crispy beef flavor, and fish flavor for cats. Who knew?

I thought that the "teddy bear passport," was really cool. Basically, they started being handed out to children to keep abductions from happening by parents who don't have custody. Now, Japanese, British, and Australian babies have to have them. There are two teddy bears on the cover, and their are instructions inside how to keep "teddy" safe.

Of course, just like the last book, it shows the ugly side of things. There is a "Kaba Kick," Russian Roulette for kids. You point the gun at your head and pull the trigger. If the gun doesn't fire, and the pair of feet don't kick out, you win points. Disturbing.

One more I found was the "Battered Doll." Basically, it's this smiling doll with missing teeth, a bandaid on his cheek, a bruise on his forehead, and a black eye. It claims that, "physical and psychological abuse is a serious problem in Spain." Psychologists have said that "if they (children) see a battered child, they won't find it alarming. They get used to holding it, find it cute, and this desensitizes them." I couldn't believe this but, they tried to ban it, and they failed!

Once again, this book is in English and French and gives you a little peek into other cultures and their daily home items. I want to get more books like this! Very interesting!
