Hey Kids! It's OK to Play With Poop! (A New, Educationally Gross Toy)

I love looking at kids toys, especially some of the newer, more odd selections.

During my recent travels, I found educational dinosaur poop.

Yes, kids... it's poop you can play with!

PBS has a kids show called Dinosaur Train.  You learn about the different dinos in the different eras, and it tries to be both educational and fun.

My 4yo nephew LOVES this show.

Dinosaur Train also sells toys.  Dino action figures, play sets, 'grow your own' eggs with toys inside (you put it in water, and the 'egg' dissolves) and... dinosaur poop.

Seriously.


There are 3 varieties: carnivore, omnivore and herbivore...


Where each type of 'poop' has a different array of fossils.  Your job, as the kid, is to discover what the dino ate before it poo'd.

But don't worry, this (obviously) isn't real poop.  It's 'dino dough,' which is another non-branded way of saying Play-Dough.

They even show you how to make fossil imprints of what you find!  Imprints... in the poop...  more playing in poop...

And to top it off, just in case you wondered...

Don't eat the poop.
I'm biting my tongue on this, because I really want to get into a "back in MY day" rant.  However, I'm just going to leave it as is.

Poop.  To play with.  For only $9.99 (yes, you pay for poop).

What do you think about this?  Educational, yes... but too far??
Please Share it! :)

Dont you dare! You had gone a little far with this, Brandon.Totally uncalled for.
I remember this episode. My son's favorite episode, "mommy, Tiny will now hide behind the poop boulder now,hahaha, pooop stone". And the Friends-Ross lookalike palentologist guy will explain the poop.
I prefer this over, "F" words both fart and fuck the comedians use in lame attempt to sound funny, which usually brings out only disgust than laughter.

Learning about poop and fossils on tv? Interesting.

Play with your own poop at home?? I see this easily going south. What if the kid decides to dig through their OWN poop to look for fossils??

He-Man. Much safer. :)

Toy poop, as in a crappy toy? I think this falls under the "if we sell it, they'll buy it" department. I think it's just dumb.

ALMOST as dumb as some grotesque monster dolls from ten years ago that screamed and had their eyeballs expand when their bodies were squeezed.

Well SHIT!

That is all I know to write.

I do recall a science activity in elementary school involving owl pellets and reconstructing mice skeletons. Is owl poop any better than dinosaur poop?

Heather Reese said...

As sick as it is, my kids would love it. For some reason they are obsessed with poop...LOL.

Save money and give kids horse shit to play with and tel them it's Dino Poop.

Sonja said...

I would totally buy this and play with it! Er..um..I mean, for the kids. Yeah, that's what I meant. Ok, no it's not, but I would share with my Lil One. I have yet to see this, but seeing how I don't hang out in toy stores (there's too many kids in there) that's not suprising. But I'm into stuff like this. My daugther too. One year for Christmas ALL she wanted was the potty training Littlest Pet Shop puppy that was pulled off the shelves because it came with a newspaper with a yellow spot and...a pile of poop. She was so happy when she opened that on Christmas morning. (Ebay is wonderful! LOL)
