Girls potty over Potter broomstick
A TOY firm has axed a vibrating replica of Harry Potter's brromstick after mums complained their daughters spent too long riding it.
One mum in New Jersey, US, said: "What were they thinking of?"
Another in Ohio told how here 12-year-old daughter played with the broomstick for hours.
She said "She likes it's special effects - so does her 17 year old sister.

This toy was #1 on my daughter's Christmas list. So what the heck, although it has no educational value I figured it would be good for imaginative play. It wasn't until after she opened her gift and started playing with it that I realized that the toy may offer a more than sensational experience. The broomstick has cute sound effects and ***VIBRATES*** when they put it between their legs to fly. Come on---what were the creators of this toy thinking? She'll keep playing with the Nimbus 2000, but with the batteries removed.
