Kids like gross things, and the toy industry is capitalizing on it. This year, games and toys feature pimple popping, poo side-stepping and disgusting smells.
SpinMaster showcased Flush Force, collectibles that pop out of toilets, and Dr. Pimple Popper, a game that’s all about popping zits, at Toy Fair. And it wasn’t the only one. The brand is also launching a line of “Fuggler” a new twist on an ugly doll, featuring realistic looking human teeth.
Jakks Pacific has its own pimple popping game, Pop-A-Zit, and plans to launch a toilet paper spitball shooter.
From Mattel comes Flush N’ Frenzy, a game that features a plunger and requires fast reflexes to catch a piece of flying poop as it bursts out of the top of a plastic toilet bowl.
If that wasn’t enough, Hasbro is launching Don’t Step In It, a game where kids have to make there way down a strip of “grass” while blindfolded and avoid as many squishy poops as possible.
Wowwee also joined the fray, debuting What’s That Smell?, a board game where players have to scratch and sniff cards and identify different, sometimes disgusting smells.
