I mean wtf?

Isn't he annoying enough on the telly?

Can you imagine your child having one, and playing with it? The places it would get stuck and you, yes YOU would have to rescue it.

When I watched Fireman Sam as a child I frickkin hated Norman.
He gives us gingers a bad name, is he still acting the fool & setting fire to him 'mam's' shop?

YUABVVVVVU! its a kids toy ffs!

Awomancalledhorse Tue 26-Jul-11 16:33:58

*his not him.
My rage for Norman overtook my typing skills.

Fireman Sam's secret love child.

Have you seen the way he looks at Dilys?

What other reason could there be for not drop-kicking the little shit for starting all the fires?

Snort at all the people getting offended on poor Norman's behalf.

I'd have thought it not worth the risk in case Toy Story was true and toys really do do their own thing when we're not in the room.

Babydubs has your DN's one set light to the cat yet? Or been found mysteriously in a tree? Or down a well.

YANBU!! He's extremely annoying. Thank goodness DS doesn't really like Fireman Sam.

queenmaeve Tue 26-Jul-11 17:05:19

DS,2.5 blamed Norman for writing on our walls last week

Think about it, though; after being forced to watch the one where the bus breaks down yet again, you could nip upstairs and punch the norman doll in the head, repeatedly, to diffuse your frustration!

BalloonSlayer Tue 26-Jul-11 17:07:37

Do you have a Norman doll, though queenmaeve? Cos it might have been him.

yy jooly it might be handy as a punchbag

ScarlettIsWalking Tue 26-Jul-11 17:10:26

He is a little shit that boy

WhoWhoWhoWho Tue 26-Jul-11 17:13:22


DS likes fireman sam and often impersonates Naughty Norman Price, he can do a welsh accent quite well [proud and scared in equal measures].

I'm more offended by the price than the product.

memeandmine Tue 26-Jul-11 17:17:44

My DS (now 8) was a massive Fireman Sam fan as a small child and his favourite character was Norman Price - so yes I would have bought this. Actually DS will still watch Fireman Sam from time to time so might not let him see that link grin

superjobee Tue 26-Jul-11 17:24:43

my nephew is norman price i swear he used to be good before he watched fireman sam.. i think .. norman bloody price i hate that little prick his mum needs to beat some sense into him not really im not of the beating kids is a good idea school of thought but jesus you'd love to beat norman bloody price admit it

ScarlettIsWalking Tue 26-Jul-11 22:04:17

I would slap him upside his head

queenmaeve Tue 26-Jul-11 22:16:59

Actually I might buy it and then say a voodoo spell over it and stick pins in it

4madboys Tue 26-Jul-11 22:35:35

ha i have a three yr old who would LOVE that, he isnt getting it tho, i cant stand talking noisy toys, we have buzz and woody and i can just about cope with them!

BEAUTlFUL Tue 26-Jul-11 22:38:48

The places it would get stuck..? ????

Tidey Tue 26-Jul-11 22:40:57

Snort at 'I hate that little prick', grin such ire directed at a fictional character! Albeit one who is a pyromaniacal idiot.

MavisGrind Tue 26-Jul-11 22:41:53

I think Norman Price is scapegoated 'cos he's ginger and the product of a working single parent.

Or an annoying little shit.

Just depends.

TheFeministsWife Tue 26-Jul-11 23:49:46

I was ready to ask what toy could possibly be that bad when I saw it was HIM! That boy makes me want to shoot myself in the head. If I was his mother I probably would have by now! shockgrin

ExH and I always thought Norman was the product of a fling with a travelling salesman who took advantage of Dilys Price grin.
