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.
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.|
Poop. To play with. For only $9.99 (yes, you pay for poop).
What do you think about this? Educational, yes... but too far??
