    However, we found out by him throwing a AA battery at our new (this summer) plasma tv. A chip with 4 cracks an inch long each radiating out of it is the result. It' won't turn on. Not a happy mama. :dizzy

    Now I know you can get these:

    I wish we would have known about it before hand...so ANYONE with little kiddos around, get one asap! :)

    Oh yikes! Huge bummer. :(

    We had something similar happen to a portable DVD player that we bought for our last big road trip. DD2 dropped it and shattered it. DH said that he thought our credit card company had a coverage clause...and they did. So, were able to get a replacement for a nominal fee (something like $29). It might be worth checking out.

    We bought it off of eBay with paypal. No such luck there. :(

    I'm so glad you were able to replace yours!!

    If our son had done that, I don't know if we'd have a son right now...my husband would have been more upset than I could express---however at that age, he did throw two toys at two different windows in our house. And broke both. Plate glass, about 1/4 inch thick.

    Hopefully either the place you bought if from, or the card you bought it with (if you used a CC) can get it replaced. :(

    That stinks! I'm sorry your tv is broken! I wouldn't have even thought of getting a screen protector! I hope you can get a good deal on a new one!

    My husband scooped up the remote a few years ago and it flew out of his hands, right into the TV. It was so much better that it was his fault rather than one of the kids. I guess we should look into those protectors! LOL

    So sorry that happened :(

    Oh no that is terrible!! I'm am thankful that my kiddos have never done that - solely because I know Chris would freak majorly!! Gives me anxiety just thinking about it LOL.

    Oh no! That's so stinky! I'm sorry that you didn't find out about those protectors sooner! We JUST got a new 50" plasma for the basement and it has the Wii hooked up to it, so I'm thinking we'll be getting one of these to avoid any errant Wii remotes flying through the air... or you know, Nerf bullets or Legos or whatever it is they want to throw at each other.

    Do it! You won't be sorry...
    The worst that can happen is that you never need it, although with kids I'm thinking we'll never have another tv without one!

    Ouch! Thanks for the pointer. Ours is a smaller screen, but still one we can't replace if the kids break it.

    My husband would probably be grateful at this point if Isaac chucked a AA battery at our TV. It's nice enough, but everytime we go through an electronics section he drools over the new ones. I understand, though. It's how I feel about the new iMacs. :)
