My Son is 8 and Smoking Cigarettes

Pros:Funny

Cons:Runs out of smoke too fast

The Bottom Line: What can it hurt?


Imagine seeing two 8 year olds walking around an amusement park with real cigarettes in their mouths. That would be my child and his cousin this past summer at the beach. They found some "cigarettes" at a novelty store and had a ball messing with people.


Price and Availability


We found these at a novelty store during a trip to the beach this past summer. The cigarettes come 2 to a package and cost $2.99. The cardboard backing has some "cool" characters pictured smoking. We managed to find the cigarettes at the local Spencer's store in the mall. Same price, same cigarettes.


The cigs


The fake cigarettes literally look like a real cigarette. If not for the giggling kids, you really wouldn't realize this wasn't a real cigarette. The paper is identical, and the tip of it is made of what looks like red aluminum foil. There is some sort of powdery stuff stuck on the red tip to make it look like a lit cigarette. In addition, the cigarettes are filled with some sort of powder so that when you have the "filter" end in your mouth, you can blow, and it looks like real smoke coming out the end.


Thoughts


I have warned my little turkey of the wrath that he will endure if he ever decides to try a cigarette. Which seems contradictory since I allow him to smoke fake cigarettes, but come on, the fakes don't cause lung cancer and it's all in good fun. I'm sure these weren't meant for adults, because if I walked around with these things in my mouth, no one is going to think twice about it. My son and his cousin walked around the amusement park with cigarettes in hand (and mouth) while my family and I hid to watch. We couldn't believe the stares by adults, other children, and teenagers. The reactions were hysterical. People really believed these two 8 year olds were smoking. We couldn't help but laugh at the crowd, and our 2 smokers, who acted like they were smoking pros. The only bad thing is that the cigarettes don't hold a lot of "smoke" and the kids are wanting new cigarettes as soon as they run out.


Overall


I know this isn't the best influential toy out there, but it's funny. My son thinks it's great fun, and now I get talked into stocking up on cigarettes every time I go to the mall. I've never smoked myself, but I think you can get an entire pack of cigarettes for around $3. Every time the pack of 2 runs out of smoke, my son is ready to buy another pack. I guess I'm going to have to break the habit, and only allow him to smoke on special occasions.
