The parents among you who reckon kids today get far too much mollycoddling are advised to proceed directly to LIDL, which evidently believes nippers need to be exposed to a little more risk. Start here, and click the "Soft Toy" button... LIDL navigation buttons ...and pretty soon your child can be cuddling one of these: …
It looks like Mr Circular Saw has a lovely smile too :)
Not a Teddy Bear..
...but a Shreddy Bear.
Yep, I'm off.
Must be a SAW III movie tie in I spose...
Why are we surprised?
Don't forget that Lidl is a German organisation.
OTOH, perhaps the preponderance of such toys amongst the German young is the explanation for the success of their football team (and their F1 drivers).
As they themselves say: "was nicht toetet haertet ab".*

Ho ho ho
I like the way they've included a bit of tinsel and a wooden "star" to give the saw blades some "Christmas gift" appeal.
The Christmas connection
Well yer man was a carpenter, "parkside - the saw blades Jesus would use"
Yeah, "Cold Steel German Sawblades"
That's my great-nephew's present sorted.
And when he suggests playing ...
... frisbee, politely decline
Lets have a game of "Screamers" :-P
There were killer teddy bears, with circular saw blades, in the "Screamers" series of Sci-Fi films, but their blades were a lot smaller.
We should thank the Coalition Government
... for putting an end to all that 'ealth and safety nonsense. Jigsaws for tots all round!!
A beer for that man!
I never thought in my wildest dreams buying my nephew a jigsaw would lead to any sort of problem.
Imagine my surprise when my sister phoned from casualty saying he'd managed to sever three fingers from his left hand.
Its Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors action toys
For S2BX. Thank you Lidl for solving a dilemma.
This was supposed to be under the "Bob the Builder" section.
Not viewable in the USA
It redirects me to a "store search" page asking me for a UK postal code.
At 5 quid!
That's CHEAP for a decent circular saw blade!
On the other hand, it's probably hard to keep an edge on soft, plush fabric ... on the gripping hand, my biggest saw only swings a 15" wheel ... 40cm is a hair on the large side ;-)
ha, for sheer injuriousness
what passes for their ravioli, takes some beating...
Surely ninja stars are illegal?
What, no more Bags O' Glass?
They work better.......
When they spin fast.
Oh the joy
Now the kiddies can head out for a little time in the park with a new plush metal frisbee and have a game of catch with their noisy friends. Be advised that I don't recommend allowing them to bring the dog... unless it's one of those little incessant yappy types.
Something to help with natural selection
As they say the tree of life is self pruning especially if you have your own power tools!
When I were a lad....
......we never 'ad toys like that. Oh no, we 'ad Teddy bears and dinky toys, but circular saw blades? I used to dream of circular saw blades.....maybe even a plane, braddle or awl. I even dared to ask for a lathe for christmas when I were 5 years old, I got the strap for that one and had to eat cold gravel for a week.
Kids of today? They don't know how lucky they are.....
Aren't they replacement wheels for one of the cars from Wacky Races?
Junior Carpentry Set
Health insurance extra
My cousin is getting One of those circular saw blades for xmas and a Spasticon Transformer toy.
The look on his face when he opens them wearing his crash helmet and dribbling with excitement =]
Evidently someone on Lidl's web team has spotted this article...
...or the numerous tweets / retweets mentioning it...
...because now the soft toys look, well, a little more soft :(
25th Nov offers
Check out that funky record player under "Home Sweet Home" on the 25th! Looking forward to the hostess trolley and the Lazy Suzan the week after.
not a bad price, either
£4.99 is cheap for a carbide tipped blade. they're probably not worth it if they're that cheap.
I blame the playstation generation, any real tool is seen by them as a toy.
Well im off to play chase with the neighbours kids - were using a tesco chainsaw.
