What, you ask? Well. If your kids watch TV (and if they're not allowed, you're probably on the wrong blog), you've no doubt seen this:
"This dog food tastes like shit!"
Or perhaps this:
"Oh yeah?! Well I poop ... poop."
And to the toy companies, I must ask this single, burning question: WTF?
Like, seriously? What is suddenly so freaking awesome about poop that even Barbie jumps on the bandwagon? I understand the appeal of a little pet for your doll on a leash and all that. Throw in a brush for its hair and a little dish and some fake food or something. Fine. I get it. But like ... when your toy comes with turds? It's a bit weird.
There have always been the odd poop toys out there. Fake piles of dog doo and stuff. But now it's like poop has gotten a PR makeover and is trendy. Poop is the "it girl" of the toy world. Poop is the new black.
And as a mother who finds herself overly, involuntarily involved in the pooping habits of nearly an entire household, I just don't get why someone would want more poop in their life. I mean, if someone feels they're lacking in that department, they're more than welcome to come by my house for a while. Although they might be in for a surprise, because nobody here poops glitter or jewelry or candy.
