Top Toy Trend: Gettin’ Gross

Poop and farts and burps, oh my! This year, kids will have a blast with toys that stink—literally. There’s pimple popping, snot slurping, and toilet plunging, and we’re just getting started! These super silly toys, games, and collectibles are not for the faint of heart, but they bring the laughs and remind us that not everything has to be so serious!


What’s That Smell (WowWee)

Whoever smelt it, dealt it! What’s That Smell? is the hilariously guessing game that will throw your sense of smell into overdrive. Players have to guess the scents correctly to outrank the competition or suffer the stinky consequences of the Whiff of Shame! The game includes 48 Mystery Whiff Cards and four Stank Cards and scent-barrier bags. The winner—aka “Nose-it-All”—gets to pick a player of his or her choice to suffer the Whiff of Shame: Three Big Whiffs of one of the four outrageously stinky Stank Cards including: Extra Old Toe Cheese, Diaper Blowout, Hot Chunky Vomit, or Smothered in B.O. This game retails for $19.99 and is recommended for kids ages 14 and up. Buy it now!


Toilet Paper Blaster Skid Shot 30 (Jakks Pacific)

This blaster uses water—not spit—to transform toilet paper into hygienic spitballs that are biodegradable and easy to clean up. Load toilet paper, fill the water tank, and blast up to 30 feet. Toilet paper has never been so fun to play with! A single blaster is $19.99 and is recommended for kids ages 8 and up. Buy it now!


Smashers Series 2: Gross Smashers (ZURU)

Blink twice if you’re reading this. These Smashers feature gross characters contained in a unique Smashball that looks like an eyeball. Kids can smash open the eyeball to reveal the freaky character hidden inside, which also happens to be covered in slime. 
Just like the first series, Series 2 includes limited-edition and very rare figures to find and collect, and “good and bad” characters to battle and earn Smash Points to become a Smasher Elite! Smashers 8-Packs start at $9.99 and are recommended for kids ages 4 and up. Buy it now!


Pimple Pete (Spin Master)

Combining a little yuck factor with a lot of fun factor, Pimple Pete is the pressure-packed, pimple popping game perfect for some gross-out fun on family game night. Turn the spinner and the arrow will land on Pimple Pete’s forehead, left cheek, right cheek, or chin. Choose a squishy pimple from that area and carefully twist and wiggle the pimple out. Earn one, two, or three points for every pimple extracted, based on the level of difficulty. If players yank too hard, they risk setting off the Mega-Zit filled with water on Pete’s nose, which will squirt players with a surprise burst of pimple juice. Win the game by earning the most points for popping pimples, or just pop pimples without bursting the Mega-Zit to reign as pimple popping champion. The game is presented by Dr. Pimple Popper, AKA Dr. Sandra Lee, a board-certified dermatologist famous for her pimple and cyst-popping videos online. Pimple Pete retails for $19.99, and is recommended for kids ages 5 and up. Buy it now!


Flushin’ Frenzy Game (Mattel)

In this game full of potty humor, players have to plunge the toilet the number of times on the die. When the poop flies out of the toilet, players try to be the first to grab it. If someone can catch it in MIDAIR, that player earns two tokens, and the player with the most tokens wins! This game is $19.99 and recommended for kids ages 6 and up. Buy it now!


Stink Bomz (TOMY)

Have you ever smelled a stink bomb before? No one knows what a fart looks like, but now they will—if they dare to open one of these bombs! Stink Bomz are a line of collectible plush characters full of surprises, and some funky smells. Each character makes three unique sounds and has their own distinct smell. Collect all eight characters, and keep an eye out for the two special rare versions. Stink Bomz are $9.99 each, and recommended for kids ages 6 and up. Buy it now!


Snot It (KD Games)

Snot It is the gross game where kids are encouraged to play with their boogers! To start, each player puts on a pair of snot glasses with colorful, sticky snot dripping from them. Players will spin the spinner to find out which color boogers they need to try to pick up from the booger bowl, using only their sticky snot. They only get to keep the boogers if they pick up exactly what’s on the spinner. Beware the purple boogers! If someone accidentally picks one up, everyone has to yell “SNOT IT!” as quick as they can. The first player to yell keeps the purple booger, while the last player must return one of their boogers to the bowl. The first player to collect 10 boogers wins! This game is available for $19.99, and is recommended for kids ages 6 and up. Buy it now!
