Ummmm say what?  There is an actual “vape” toy for babies? That’s crazy!

The toy posted on Bubs Warehouse Facebook page attracted lots of WTF? comments as you can imagine.

Others also added, “That’s just horrible. Surely this isn’t real.. you may as well have “my first bong.””

But one person did point out that it’s actually just a hoax/joke.

The toy itself does not exist and the “promotional” imagery is no more than a hoax created by New York advertising executive and serial meme maker Adam Padilla.

According to SNOPES he said there was no particular agenda behind “My First Vape”, other than a desire to amuse himself and others.

“I thought it would be a funny and crazy notion for a baby toy. Nothing deeper than that whatsoever. Many of my friends vape so I see the gear all the time, and it was top of my mind. I got a lot of backlash, some people thought that there was some ulterior motive, but if you look at my page, you will see that it is one of many hundreds of similar fake products that I create…

“My only agenda is entertainment. I don’t want to hurt any industry or anything.”

Still, why would you even JOKE about something like this?

What do you think? Funny or offensive?

  • Really, what the! Doesn’t he have anything better to do.
    I don’t like it. Some idiot will probably use it as a marketing idea and turn it into something real knowing the times we live in today.

  • I get it’s a joke, but personally don’t like idea. I just wouldn’t purchase it. Not something to promote to a child.

  • Clearly a joke. Not a funny one. But certainly not offensive. People need to calm down if they get their knickers in a twist about this. It’s a joke. It’s not even a real toy being sold.

  • Apparently it’s just a hoax or joke. I don’t know what vape is but if this toy isn’t actually for sale then sounds like it shouldn’t be either.

  • I guess the up side would be that the child wouldn’t know what it is or anything. Stupid baby toy

  • I’m glad this is not a real thing- utterly stupid and not funny at all.

  • Not funny at all. I didn’t even know what a Vape was until I read this! I must be living in a cave?

  • it isn’t offensive it is just stupid and irresponsinble

  • I’m fairly naive so I didn’t get what it was until reading this! Having a background in the arts I understand it’s just a joke among friends that’s gotten widespread attention due to social media and the content. People worry and analyse jokes too much! Lighten up people!
