WTF? Mattel Have Released a Barbie Poop ‘n Clean Up Dog!
Mattel surely are taking the piss with the release of their Barbie Walk & Potty Pup toy that comes with a pooping labrador and pooper scooper to clean up after his toy ‘poop’ comes out.
That’s what I thought when I saw this video:
I seriously, HONESTLY thought this was a joke but then I did some research and no, no, it’s not a joke. You can actually buy this – look here: Barbie Walk & Potty Pup. It seems this was first released in 2006 and later recalled due to the poop being a choking hazard but it’s BACK.
Were they all smoking weed at that development think-tank meeting? I can only assume so.
“Hey, I’ve got an idea! Let’s make a barbie dog that takes a shit and Barbie can clean it up with a pooper scooper!”
“Pass the bong dude, that’s an awesome idea. Do it! Do it! Do it”. And then some team leader actually signed off on this and sent the order for immediate production to begin in China.
I can only imagine the faces of the staff of the toy stores around the world as they started stocking this on the shelves. Are these things for REAL?
On the other hand…..maybe some very clever individual is doing parents a massive solid after his kids promised they would pick up after their puppy that they begged for by creating this “fun” idea in the vague hope it would work in real life.
I can pretty much guarantee that it won’t. Real dog shit smells like shit.
This is so weird, I can’t even…
