Is a meme of "Toddler Tamers" an advertisement of sorts for a "leashless ankle weight system" for kids? No, that's not true: The product is not real. There is no such system to weigh down a child's ankles to prevent them from running away. It is a prank - an empty box that can be used for gag gifts.
The claim originated from a meme (archived here) published by FAIL Blog on November 15, 2018. It opened:
this is such a bad product. you might have temporary control over your tot but youre just going to make it stronger. whats worse than an uncontrollable baby? an uncontrollable baby who has never missed leg day and could kill you with one kick
Users on social media only saw this title, description and thumbnail:
The humorous post has gotten tens of thousands of shares and engagements on social media, but the product is not real. A link to an eBay listing for one of the boxes offered this description:
This is a fake empty box used for joke gifts. You only get an empty box. There is no such thing as "Toddler Tamers"
Just put something heavy inside the box, like a rock or a book. Then give the "gift" and watch your friend pretend to like it when they clearly don't.
The fake product is currently listed on the auction site for $12, which will give the winner an empty box and the eventual gift recipient, perhaps, a few laughs.
