I agree she shouldnt have put it in the cloth section. It has nothing to do with diapers and if your not on the AOL cloth diaper board then you would never know that. I hope she is at least going to donate the money to Levi and not just make a profit off of it.

Exactly it is very wrong to mislead people with auctions....ebay frowns upon that.
Not only that but now that I know what it is....I think the shipping on this is insane!!!! Out her store it is costing people almost 10 dollars for something that can be placed in a regular flat envelope and shipped......

I'm not sure, but I think she adjusts the shipping on those because the store sets it at a certain amount. Not sure, but definitely worth asking about, because I know I didn't pay that much when I ordered some recently.

I could see how LOTS of people have no use for it. Dh is a teacher, so it might be handy for us.

Ok now I'm really curious but my guess is some kind of school supply. That's what I've been thinking when people say their kids use them all the time, and now the .50 cent thing.

Anyone want to spill??

I have a friend who has a thing too. She showed it to me a while ago, but I didn't realze it was a thing. I almost bought one last night, but since she hangs out on AOL, I asked her if she knew what it was. Then she told me what it was. I am glad I didn't buy one, it can easily be made at home. Incidentally, I wouldn't exatly call it a school supply, because that is not the only time one could use it. I can think of many other times it would be handy, but not for that price.

Get your revenge and tell us what this dasterdly "thing" is!

tell us! Tell us!! You know you want to.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Isn't it amazing how all of the anticipation died down as soon as it was announced that the thing is not diaper related?

Okay, I'm still curious... :

I know what it is! It is useful but not $10 useful. And i have to say $5 for shipping, especially since she doesn't even have to make a special trip to the post office is a wee bit of a rip off.

Now, what I can't believe is that nobody that had one already came out and said "Don't bother, it's not worth $5!" I know what it is, and there's no way I'd ever spend $5 for something like it, unless the entire amount was going to a charity.

Lets put it this way - spend your $5 on a piece of Tupperware - you'll get more function for your money.

LOL Stella, or for $5 you can get 5 BOXES of the same thing at a grocery store, literally 50 of them for $5 of course those are plastic and disposable, I still wouldn't pay $5 for one of them.

Nope- glad I didn't buy one to find out what it is because there should be 3 or 4 of them for that price!
