At Toy Fair 2018, poop playthings are absolutely everywhere

Poop proves exceedingly popular in this year's crop of new toys. This might be my least favorite toy theme ever.

Hmmm, here's a game for children that seems to be about getting this plastic piece of feces to shoot out of a toilet and then trying to catch it in your hands.

This appears to be an actual mug shaped like a toilet.  I think it's for kids to collect all the shitty toys they are now begging you to buy more of.
