A pooping dog, making funny gassy noises, will have kids in peels of laughter. Here is a game that will be fun and entertaining for kids.
How to play This is a 2 to 4 player game for kids over 5 years of age. Parental supervision would help in the initial few rounds till the kids get a hang of it.
Move your pet doggie around, play with him and feed him. When he makes a mess, you have to clean it up. This is the objective of the game.
Setup comes with dog food and moulds. Cut out the dog food with the mould and push it in the doggie's mouth. Each player takes a coloured shovel. Roll the die and play as per instructions on it. The leash has a pump. The die specifies number of times the player can pump. Once, twice, thrice or miss a turn. When the pooch is ready to poop, he will make funny noises. The player who had pressed the leash has to clean up the mess. The one who collects thrice, wins.
One advice here, if there are more than 4 kids around, it's better to keep this toy in the box. Somehow kids love making the dog do his business!
Where to buy This game was invented about 15 years ago. Unfortunately, this pooping puppy did not get anyone to adopt it and was gathering dust in the workshop. Finally in 2011, it was unveiled in a toy fair in U.S. and soon went on to become one of most wanted childrens' toys.
It is available in most toy shops, including Toys'r'us, Walmart, Kmart or you can buy it on their online stores. It can be bought online on amazon.com, areyougame.com and drugstore.com. Amazon and drugstore also sell 'dog food' so your pet wont go hungry.
This game is a great way to teach kids to care for pets. Tuning them through game play can make them ready for the real thing. It is a good way to inculcate the habit to clean up after your pets have messed.
Parents can get a fair idea of how enthusiastically kids would care for a real pet.
