Okay, I have a four year old. You guys know this, right? She’s a girly girl and that means she’s a huge fan of all things Barbie. She also has a little stuffed puppy she carries everywhere. It’s cute, and totally endearing. His name is Puppy Luppy, and we call him Lups for short.
So, when this commercial came on, my daughter went a little freak show.
I look up to the big ‘ol television in the middle of the room to watch a plastic puppy doing…. and I quote:
“Either Number ONE or Number Two.”
They did not just say that…
Then Barbie goes on to ask, “What will it be? Puppy Pee or Puppy Poo.”
I seriously thought it was a joke.
Look Mattel, let me be clear here–I have a dog he takes the occasional dumb in my closet when I like forget to feed him or whatever–I don’t think I’ve ever once said to myself, “Holy crap on a cracker, this would make the coolest toy EVAR.”
But then again, my daughter asked me to rewind the television three times so she could watch it.
Maybe I don’t have a future career as a toy manufacturer…
