For those longing for the days of Barbie’s crapping toy dog Tanner, we have very good news: there is a new generation of toy animals that take little toy dumps on command. 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 small plastic ball, which is a huge relief for all. Turns out the main varieties of toy turds are glitter, rainbows and jewels.
These toys have been around for a while, but it reminds me that I should have investigated this phenomenon at Toy Fair more thoroughly. Dolls that wee and poo never really go out of style for children of any age who like to laugh.
