Mattel launches Pooparoos Surpriseroos

Published on: 23rd July 2018

The innovative new collectible taps in to the on-trend toilet humour and surprise collectibles kids crazes.

The range allows kids to open the toilet seat to find out which Pooparoos Surpriseroos squishy figure is hiding inside.

Kids can then lift the lid of the tank to find three surprise paper packs; once filled with water kids can add the sheet of paper to the toilet, stir it with the scoop included and watch it dissolve to reveal the pet’s food. After they’ve scooped the food out and fed it to their pet, kids can sit their Pooparoos on the potty and squeeze it three times to make it poop its food into the toilet.

Figures include brightly coloured animals such as Blue Bunny, Panda, Pink Bear, White Unicorn, Yellow Monster or a Corgi dog, with a total of eight Surprisearoos and 46 different paper pack variations to collect.

Katherine Daniel, marketing manager Mattel Toy Box commented: “As a leader in kids play, Mattel is always looking for fun and exciting ranges that tie into current trends. Pooparoos is a great example of this – tapping into the current collectible market along with the fun toilet humour trend. Pooparoos is a totally unique collectible in super-cute colours, creating a fun toy that combines kids’ love for surprises, magical animals and collectibles with potty play.”

Surprising elements continue with collectible food including cupcakes, hotdogs, macaroons, donuts and colourful piles of poop. Kids can store their Pooparoos figure in the toilet, and its food in the tank, until they are ready to play again.
