    So I am currently searching for Christmas presents for my nephew and some of the toys I am seeing are rather disturbing. Take this one for instance who the fuck decided lets make a game about a shit that has blocked up a toilet.

    Screenshot_20191203_000432.jpg

    Game description.

    Flushin' Frenzy
    It’s the game of one plunger, some poop, and fast reflexes! Flush the handle on the toilet to roll the die, and when a number comes up - you have to plunge the toilet that number of times.

    But be careful, after any given push of the plunger the poop may COME FLYING OUT OF THE TOILET! The first player to grab the poop earns a token. If you’re quick enough to catch it in midair, you earn TWO tokens! The player who ends up with the most tokens wins!

    Is this game really gross or just gross enough? You decide! Lots of silly fun for 2-4 young plungers, age 5 and up.

    Comes with 1 toilet, 1 plunger, 1 die, and 10 score tokens. Colours and decorations may vary.

    The problem is that they've run out of ideas and they need to show increase in profit so they literally take any idea they can get away with.

    It teaches valuable life skills, like plumbing, the importance of a high fiber diet, and the fact that sometimes you have to firmly grasp a turd if you want to get ahead in life.

    Is this really all that different to the garbage pail kids, various takes on slime/ooze and similar such things?

    Maybe we should be teaching people to form their own tools from a coathanger or something.

    Not really.

    Kids of a certain age (ages 3 through 33) love gross out and toilet humor. There's always a market for poop-related stuff. I just came across this one a few days ago:

    I'm pretty sure I've heard those exact mechanics in another game. One that's less... disturbing.

    There's a ton of games with that same mechanic, "take turns to [perform an action] [random number of times], until the toy is triggered to pop/spin/jump/shake/whatever". My kids have two like that, one where you shower a rubber dog until it shakes off, and another where you feed a pig hamburgers until its shirt pops open. The farting monkey I posted up there, you have to pull the monkey's finger a number of times, and then it farts. Same mechanic with a bunch of different skins over it.
