    His wands are really cool but dear god he needs to learn how to phrase things better.

    Don't we have a holiday about a guy who gives free toys to kids? And that guy comes into your house at night.

    I met this guy a couple years back when I was studying by La Jolla Shores. I was by myself but there were other people around but I still felt sketched out when he approached me. Wary as I was we talked and had a nice conversation and he gave me one of those fun passes. Overall nice guy and has a sweet dog I just don't think he understands his position as an older male coming up to young people can be suspicious. I think he has good intentions though. Even so always be on your guard in these situations.

    "I have a magic wand for you, in my car. Wait here and I'll go get it...but you can only have it if your mom says it's okay."
    This is the opposite of creepy, Trevor. This is someone going to his car by himself to get something for a child's mother to approve before giving it to said child. He didn't lure her to his car. He didn't try to keep the gift a secret from the kid's parent. Calm down.

    Not quite sure but since the wands actually look nice- I will give this man a pass, if it is true what he says and does actually consult the parents first before giving kids sth from his car. For some reason I do want to believe he is truly just being nice

    People keep saying he needs to change his sentences. The only thing that makes it bad is our dirty minds. When kids ear magic wand they think magic wand. At that age their minds havent been dirtied yet. This speaks volume on how bad society has become.

    I get he could phrased things better but I don't think he deserved to be portrayed like this.

    I genuinely believe he's a good guy. When you're out in the open blatantly interacting in this manner, there's no ill will. It's the people that you least expect and that portray themselves otherwise, they are ones that end up doing the bad stuff.

    He is giving out wands for freeeee
    I guess that’s what made parents so overly sensitive cuz you don’t get something fancy for free

    No but really that's just a guy making some dope ass wands like i mean have you seen these things?! Had someone told me this guy existed when i was WAY into harry potter i'd have thrown money at the guy.

    Did anyone else notice that Desi's opening was her tossing the baby, not catching it, and then smiling like nothing happened? I had to rewatch to make sure, because it was well done.

    I feel like the message for this segment is a bit mixed. it probably made more helicopter parents.
