Dumbing Down the Herd: Brain-Numbing New Toys Poop Rainbows, Glitter, and Jewels

Because every little girl needs a doll that poops. Particularly if it emits adorable sparkly poop.
Moxie Girls, a brand of doll made by MGA Entertainment, the company that makes the scantily clad Bratz dolls, now have a new line: Poopsy Pets.
No, you haven’t stumbled onto a satire website. This is a thing. Seriously. You can find it here.
It would be too much to supply kids with non-electronic toys that allow them to just use their imaginations. I long for the days of toy kitchens, playhouses, tree forts, and baseball gloves. Those days have been replaced by the ilk of Poopsy Pets. Gee whiz, what happened to playing cowboys and indians? (Ooops – politically incorrect.) What about baking imaginary cupcakes in pretend ovens? (Uh-oh – gender stereotyping.) No, instead one can now opt between pets that poop rainbows, jewels, or glitter. Â Be sure and check out the rather distasteful graphicsÂ HEREÂ by clicking on the pets. This is clearly a far more socially acceptable type of toy.
Here’s the product description from Toys R Us:
The Moxie Girlzâ˘ are living in a fun, fantasy world, complete with their very own whimsical pets!
The Moxie Girlzâ˘ Poopsy Pets Doll features include:
- Moxie Girlz doll with her own fantasy pet
- Whimsical fashion
- Pet really poops? each unique to each pet!
- Avery has a pet koala who poops jewels
- Lexa has a pet bunny who poops glittered poop
- Kellan has a pet unicorn who poops rainbow poop
Play is supposed to prepare our kids for life. I guess the real question is, what exactly does this prepare someone for? Unrealistic expectations about poop? About the pleasantness of pet ownership? Ditzy children who giggle maniacally during commercials? I certainly don’t see the pursuit of liberty and revolution in the future of the users of these toys. If these girls are future farmers, they are going to be in for a horrible surprise the first time they have to muck out a barn.
Is this just the latest step in dumbing down the herd?
