I would have taken the first comment to mean to stress it doesn't bother us. So the second comment would really p/ss me off. What others have said above would be good but I'm not sure I would have said it, though I would have wished I had.

The b1tch in me would've made a comment alluding to the fact that the supermarket doesn't have any bells

It would have depended on my mood. Generally I wouldn't have thought much of it - just assumed it was bothering her while she was trying to concentrate. But I can certainly see myself getting annoyed if I was tired/sick/cranky.
TBH the bell ringing would have annoyed me so it would likely have been me telling my DS to stop!

I would have probably said "okay DS, let's go" and promptly left.
Her first remark insinuated that it wasn't an issue if a child touched the bells. Her following remark suggested she was in fact, annoyed.
Stupid blardy bells!

If I was in a bad mood and DS was doing that I prob would of said if you don't want kids playing with them then don't have them there then said I'll have a kilo of sausages please just to add in some sarcasm so she couldn't say anything

I would have been annoyed, but would have made DS come and stand with me while I finished my purchase then left. Never to return again - I'm non-confrontational but would have shown my annoyance by not contributing to their business after that purchase (given I would have been in there as I needed meat).

From the responses it seems that most think that if items are at kids level in shops then that gives them the right to touch/play with them. Where is the line with this I wonder? Is it okay to touch/play with items for sale in shops? To sit on displays? Or just play with fixtures such as bells?
I will add that I am not trying to be antagonistic, I am genuinely a bit surprised by the attitude that if its at child height then it's ok to play with. (And I know that in this case the shop attendant indicated that it was okay initially, so I am just speaking more broadly).

I would have agreed with her and made my child stop. Just because they are at a child height doesn't mean they are there for kids to play with.

I would of told her "perhaps but the bells up higher then the kids won't be able to touch them and annoy you"
