One of the BIG trends of 2013 is the return of gross in toyland. These toys are purposefully full of snot, gas, and overflowing toilets. Here are the notable winners in this dubious category.
Gooey Louie (Goliath Games) – He’s back. The game play remains the same – to “pick” a winner. If you pick the wrong piece out of his nose, his brain will pop out.
2. Doctor Dreadful Organ Grinder (Umagine/Spin Master) – game play is to make zombie organs, infuse them with goop and bugs — and then eat them. Yum.
3. The Ugglys Electronic Pup Pet (Moose Toys) – A toy that lives up to its name. Purposefully ugly and even though this toy is mainly a head, this pup sounds like he swallowed a whoopee cushion.
4. Gross Science Lab (SmartLab) -Among the activities- create a mixture to make the included toy toilet (with flushing sound) overflow. Just hope it doesn’t spark an idea to do it for real!
