Apr 10, 2012 By Abraham

All your tyke needs to play Superhero is a cape, an overstuffed sack of foam, and your loving arms to throw him…

    Sweet awesomeness!! Where can I get one of those landing platforms!! I can’t wait until my 6 week old is old enough for this :)!

  2. Lulu says:

    Proof that people should have to get a license before becoming parents. Lucky he didn’t hit his head on the bathtub and snap his neck. As it is – brain injuries are particularly dangerous in developing brains. Nothing cuteor funny about this and too many other videos on here.

    1. Phil says:

      Heres an idea, stay away from 22 words. That way you don’t have to see his posts, and the people who do enjoy them don’t have to read your complaints

    2. Ben says:

      bathtub…? Tossing a kid into something as obviously soft as this cushion is not going to cause a brain injury. If anything it helps them psychologically know that Daddy can be trusted to watch out for them.

    3. Josh says:

      Uhm, where in this video do you see a Bathtub? That is a giant beanbag chair. Or the newer and softer foam ones…This video is fine, you just dont know how to let your kids have fun, or an imagination

    4. Amber says:


      “Lucky he didn’t hit his head on the bathtub.”

      “How dare you let that kid ride a bike? You’re lucky the giant ants don’t come flying out of the trees and just snatch him away.”

      ^^ Both of these statements make equal sense. What bathtub?!

    5. CaughtOnFireOnce says:

      You never got hugged as a child. Didn’t you. Also, go make a difference in the world then. Crying online isn’t going to stop “all the other ” videos on here. Be proactive. Not reactive .

      1. Josh says:

        Blanket statements and jumping to the extremes also don’t help. Not that I agree with the statement either, but come on now.

    6. Becca says:

      I’m a bit late to the party, but being this overprotective of your kids is actually dangerous. It creates people like you, and then the rest of us have to deal with them.

      When I was about this age, my dad would pick me up by the ankles and swing me face first down onto the couch.

      I loved it. I once got a nose bleed, and neither of us noticed until it got on the couch.

      I should add that this was the 90s, back when couches weren’t that fluffy.

      Getting hurt is an important part of growing up. If you don’t get hurt, you don’t know what to avoid when you’re older. Instead, all you know is that mommy told you not to do this and that, and that you REALLY want to do it.

  3. me says:

    Ok, this isn’t terribly smart (brain damage from hitting the skull, etc). But my siblings and I used to build giant launch pads to jump onto piles of couch pillows when I was around that age (they were older)… and we’re still alive and just fine, lol.

  4. Amber says:

    we do this with my kiddos on the bed all the time – how awesome would it be to be able to have so much space!!! haha! greatness

    (ps as someone with a degree in psychology and getting a degree in neuroscience, i wholly approve of this method of parenting.)

  5. Mike says:

    I’m kind of in the middle on this one. We did lots of things as kids that wouldn’t be approved of today. But there is a risk of concussion here, regardless of whether or not the kid actually hits his head. It’s the sudden stop that is a little concerning.

  6. Feb says:

    The sudden stop amidst little foam bits, wrapped together in a soft cloth covering? Nahh. There’s plenty of give here.

    (Hi. I practice medicine. Emergency medicine, even. I think this is okay, so long as the landing pad is checked before each use and it doesn’t slide around.)

  7. Janine says:

    hahahah that’s amazing!!

    I used to play something like that with my little brother, throwing him to the end of the bed…. though I would occasionally over-shoot it and he would smack into the wardrobe behind, then slide down in cartoon fashion…… He actually loved it >.<

    1. Janine says:

      Wait, um… that sounds like his FACE smacked into the wardrobe, but I threw him backwards… so his back hit it… that’s slightly better, right? lol Not the most clever of games, I know, but we were kids…

  8. JonoC says:

    He’s reaching the peak of his arc only a little above the beanbag, not a big deal. I wouldn’t suggest doing it more than a couple of times in a row, but nothing wrong. A little brain-jolting is good for development! It’s science!

    1. Shell says:

      You can do that with most youtube videos. Try pressing different numbers to see different things. My husband and I watched the preview for “Horrible Bosses” and found one number that made a character jab the other character repeatedly in the chest with a syringe. It was insanely hilarious.

  9. souzzin says:

    there is something wrong with you. someone who would do that to a toddler has a severe mental defect. I hope child protection services sees this and takes that child away from an abusive and dangerous environment.

    1. huh? says:

      People like you makes this world a miserable place to live in. Go live in your own bubble and stop infecting other people with your negativity.

  10. mksjmj65 says:

    No I didn’t like this at all. It is way too rough. Why would you throw kid across the room anyway??? I found it disturbing.

  11. sldphotonut says:

    I’m wondering what “(For extra fun, click 7 a few times while the video is playing.)” means. Can someone help me? Thanks!
