The holiday shopping season is almost here, and we all know that toy companies will be working to keep up with the latest fads and trends to make sure their products are #1 at the checkout counter. But I think Play-Doh may be running out of ideas… because their newest product is basically “make-your-own poop emoji”. No joke.

Play-Doh just announced it would be coming out with “Poop Troop”, a new set based on the poop emoji itself! It comes with 12 cans of Play-Doh (including brown), accessories like 2 ears, 4 arms, 4 eyes, 3 noses, and a hat, along with everything else you need to mold it! It sells for just shy of $20!
This is literally how the new toy is described:
“Who’s in your Poop Troop?! From giggle-worthy poop monsters to creations like the famous emojis, kids can create a rainbow of their own hilarious Play-Doh characters. You might make a face at the idea, but making silly faces for your characters is literally what it’s all about! To start the fun, use the poo mold, tools, and Play-Doh colors to create your character’s body. Grab the eyes, arms, mouths, and other accessories and plug them in different places to make all kinds of silly faces. Mix them up for a giggling good time again and again, and don’t forget to clean up after yourself!”
Of course, people in Facebook-land has mixed feelings about this new toy… some people think it’s gross!
And some people think it’s amazing!
Honestly, I just don’t get it. Why would you get this for your kids? HAHAHA, IT’S THE POOP EMOJI, OMG! I don’t care! It just seems like Play Doh is running out of ideas, and has a lot in common with the emoji that inspired its newest toy! Or as on Twitter user said…
