Harold the CPR dummy

Maggie had a CPR course in school. They gave all the kids an extremely cool thing: their very own CPR dummies. (HLR, actually, in Norwegian. Stands for Hjerte-Lungeredning, or Heart-Lung Rescue). Harold, as she affectionately calls him, comes in a box. He inflates and then is ready to practice. His head must be properly tipped back in order for air to pass from his mouth to his lungs, and he makes a clicking noise if his chest is pressed in the proper place with the proper amount of pressure. Totally awesome. But it does freak me out lust a little bit that he looks like the robot from I, Robot.
