If you have kids and drive to place kids go such as schools, parks, PumpitUp or CHuckee Cheese, you are bound to see cars with magnets on them. It is not unusual to see a car with 3-5 magnets or more. The days of “Baby on Board” suction signs on the back window are over. For instance, we have a soccer ball, my sons school, Obama-Biden, and AYSO. I noticed my younger sons school recently started selling magnets. So thats sure to make the bumper soon. When did this magnet craze take off?
Don’t get me wrong, its definitely better than living with the long term ugliness of bumper stickers, but it seems to me like its starting to go overboard. Like so many products in America, it starts out looking good and making sense. And then everyone wants one for everything.
If you are reading this, I’d be curious how many car magnets you have. If you are single, or don’t have kids, do you have magnets too?
