TM, the brand that owns Bratz and Bratzillas, has another group of “nicer” dolls hidden up their sleeve called “Moxie Girlz.” The site tells girls what it means to have moxie and the tagline “Be True, Be You” makes them sound promising. That is, until you take a closer look.
Upon closer inspection, you’ll see that being “true” and being “you” probably translates into letting it all hang out. Or come out. Or something like that — just with really gross, but still kind of pretty, connotations.
Frankly, over here at Babble, we’re tickled by it.
A doll that poops rainbows? We’ll take two (dolls, that is).
The Moxie Girl doll herself is just kind of meh. She wears an outfit that looks like something once owned by a Saved By the Bell extra. And her face is frozen in an expression that looks as if she’s smelling something bad — which, of course, is impossible, because how could rainbow-colored poop smell like anything but all kinds of awesome.
Also? Why the sour look on her face when the Moxie Girl’s pet — a unicorn with a brightly colored metabolism — is totally the stuff that dreams are made of. It’s described as a “fantasy pet,” and, indeed, who doesn’t fantasize about picking up after their pet if what you’re picking up is pink/yellow/blue poop.
The manufacturer claims “Moxie Girlz are all about expressing themselves and reaching for the stars.” The pets are all about expressing themselves, too. Just a bit more literally. And we think it’s rad.
Of course, the Moxie Girlz Poopsy Pet Doll isn’t without its flaws, as one reviewer on Amazon points out:
This toy is very cheaply made and doesn’t work mechanically; all the rainbow eggs are stuck in the flimsy unicorn. It’s cute but it does not do what the product description says it does.
But on the flip side, you simply can’t discard the toy as a learning tool, as another reviewer remarked:
This educational toy is great for teaching kids about pooping. Personally, I poop rainbow drops that feel like velvet and smell like orange sherbet, unless I eat chili, then its more like rose petal potpourri. If its just gas, then a rainbow beams out and swirls the room, wrapping itself around anyone in the room with a loving embrace.
If it were an April Fool’s joke, it would be a shame, because then this pooping unicorn couldn’t be yours. Happily, this is not a prank. Buy one (or many) here.
