Thought for the day: UK’s top 12 Christmas toys..FOREAL?!

It is almost Christmas time again… time to spend money on people that none of us have, at least my poor parents don’t have to buy silly toys anymore since all of us are grown enough that clothes, gift cards, and cold hard cash work JUST PERFECTLY.

According to the Toy Retailers Association, here are the top 12 toys they think will make Christmas special for all the good little boys and girls (prepare yourself…some of these are ridiculous)

There are some classics at the bottom of the list, such as: Star Wars Ultimate Force Tech Lightsaber Assortment,  Ninjago Fire Temple, Nerf Vortex Nitron Blaster,Moshling Tree House, and Monster High Lagoona’s Hydration Station. THEN THINGS GET WEIRD with…Milky the Bunny, Let’s Rock Elmo, LeapPad Explorer, Kidizoom Twist, Fijit Friendsand Fireman Sam Pontypandy Rescue Set.

Anyone know whata  Milky Bunny is? Sounds like a creeper toy to me…just saying. However, I am SO DOWN with Let’s Rock Elmo. BAM! I LOVE ELMO!!!

now for what you’ve been waiting for…drum roll please… the number one toy…are you ready? Is the suspence killing you yet? It is…. DOGGIE DOO.

When you Google this game…a picture shows up. Now originally what do you think of with this name’s title? Dog poop..right? (or is that just me?) Either way.. IT IS EXACTLY THAT! The point of the game, believe it or not, is for kids to pick up 3 doggie poops before the other children playing. SERIOUSLY TOY MAKERS?!! You made a game for children about cleaning up after a dog? I mean I guess it is good to teach children about the curtousy of cleaning up after your pets…but come on parents…teach your kids yourself, why buy a game with fake poop and a fake dog?

Toy creaters must be running out of ideas for kids toys… next we will have “squueze me porcupine” where kids squeeze the animal and can get poked with thier needles. Or maybe something on the lines of “drink till you vomit” goal of the game… make your doll drink, first one to vomit wins!

All I can do is shake my head… tisk tisk toy makers…doggie poop? REALLY? Disappointing.
