Well it's that time of year again or that time of day if you're watching a children's tv channel! That all the toy advertisements are on tv for what seems like every minute and today while watching with my little one I saw an advert for a game, if that's what you can call it, a game called doggie doo! I kid you not this is supposed game is aimed at children 3 and upwards and the aim of the game is to collect dog poo and the person who collects 3 dog poos first wins! Seriously, is it me or is this disgusting?
What's wrong with snakes and ladders or ludo or connect four? Ok maybe I'm showing my age here but those were games!
Picking up pretend dog poo, Erm, No! and as for teaching kids that if you have a pet you have to clean up after it well let me tell you dogs usually don't poop out plasticine, well saying that there was this one time that our dog pooped out an array of technicolour items play dough included but trust me it was no fun to clean up!
Please game makers make nice,fun, hopefully somewhat educational games for our children!
What's next, Guess what's in the vomit? The fun game for all ages!
Erm just in case some sad git does think that's a good idea for a game please remember you saw it here first and though technically disgusting it was my idea!
