OMW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Barbie has a new pet. His name is Tanner. It's a dog. Big deal right??


Yes it does!! GO HERE and watch the commercial! After peeling myself off the floor (I was losing it I was laughing so hard) I had to post this.

Why Mattel?? Why exactly do we need our daughters to have a toy dog that "eats" it's dog food (which incidentally is what is used for the poop! So it EATS IT'S OWN POOP!), and then "goes to the bathroom"??

I totally understand the premise behind dolls that go potty when potty training your child -- BUT REALLY, this is too much!

Oh yeah! And Theresa (Barbie's friend) has a cat that TINKLES IN IT'S LITTERBOX! Then Theresa can "scoop" the litterbox.

Beyond the yuck factor -- has anyone thought about the little boy who died from swallowing some magnets from his sibling's Magnetix set? There are magnets in the "food/poo" as well, should we be concerned?

Oh no. Seriously? This is FOR REAL? No way.

I am flipping over this!!! However, I remember my baby dolls would pee after giving them water in the play bottle, but this is too much! And they make it look like **FUN**

OMG!!! I can't believe it. I mean, I have the pregnant doll (her name is Midge, my family's nickname for me) and I thought THAT was crazy. A dog that poops? I guess they are trying to be realistic!
ACK! What's next, army toys that bleed? Cars that really catch on fire? What IS this world coming to?

WOW!! I burst out laughing at my desk only to get some strange looks. I guess it's realistic if a little strange.

Is this for real??? You actually saw this on tv????

My daughter once had a dog called "PI PI" it was made in China (well, what isn't?) and it slurped water through it's tongue, and then it lifted it's leg and peed. heehee. We've since given it away, but it made us laugh.

I'm adding you to my bloglines!!!

Wow. I might actually consider buying this now.

Am I serious or not?

I'll leave that to you. ;)

Are you serious? I cannot believe they would waste their designing dollars on stuff like this! You know, it will probably be like our real pets though... I will be cleaning up the mess while they sit and watch!
