Although this being 2014, the girls who own the pets are fashionable “Moxie Girls” and the lovable pets with “the silly poo” are a bunny a koala and a unicorn. It turns out unicorn poo looks a lot like a colorful plastic ball, which is a huge relief for all. Turns out the main varieties of toy turds are glitter, rainbows and jewels.
