October has just begun which means if you have your TV on you're going to see two types of commercials: political(on adult TV) and toys(on kid TV... Only 3 months until Christmas, you know!) Over the past couple of weeks I've seen some commercials for toys that have made me stop what I'm doing and say "What? Are these for real?"
Barbie now has a pet dog. This dog comes with treats that you can feed him which also double for poop. Once Barbie feeds the dog, it comes out the other end and she uses her 'pooper scooper' to pick them up. Now, I like dogs and everything but I'm pretty sure this is not one of the highlights of owning one.
There are plenty of baby dolls on the market but I think "Baby Alive" takes the cake. She has baby food and bottles that you can feed her and when she's finished she sits up and says "Uh oh, I made a stinky!" Your child then gets to change a diaper full of some nasty concoction that looks like baby poop.
Let me just say that if you have a kid that wants to change poopy diapers, before you go out and spend money on one of these dolls, call me. I've got a daughter that is in diapers and she makes the real thing... your kid can come over and change her anytime!
