There was an explosion of poop at North American International Toy Fair this weekend—and I’m thankfully not talking about the “I missed” kind from Daddy Day Care. All of these new products, which humor kids and adults, will probably explain why your kids will be obsessed with poop this year. We saw a whole bunch of fart- and poop-themed toys and games that we just couldn’t pass by and not notice, and here are some of our flatulate favorites (in no particular order).
As a follow up to the popular Poo-Dough and Fart Piano in the Prank Star line, this motorized bubble gun blasts out a stream of fart bubbles. Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without real fart sounds. But, don’t worry! The bubbles are cherry-scented, so you get to experience the fun of farts without having to smell the real thing (phew!).
Cacamax has a whole bunch of functions, like being able to walk on a leash, that lets kids play with him as if he were a real dog. And what else do real dogs do? Poop. You know the drill: Kids feed Cacamax his yummy bones, and then press a button when they want the dog to poop. He may even make an “oopsie” while you’re walking him in the middle of the street (and he is not shy about making real noises), but never fear—the set comes with a pooper-scooper so you can clean up the mess right away (because that was my first worry). Plus, “poop” literally translates into “caca” in French, so at least your kid will be able to “parle” in another language.
Kids can make food for Sara to eat, and she’ll let you know when she’s full, ready for a nap, or needs a diaper change. But you’ll actually need to change her diaper, because like all babies, Sara needs to poop.
