A game in which a toy dog leaves ‘little presents’ for children to clean up is set to be one of the best selling gifts this Christmas.
The Doggie Doo game gives players a chance to scoop up as much plasticine poo as possible in order to win.
The dice game, from manufacturer John Adams, retails for up to £24 and is among this year’s Christmas ‘dream’ wish list for children.
This year’s list of ‘must have’ toys – drawn up by the Toy Retailers’ Association – also features Fijit Friends, a fluffy interactive rabbit.
It also includes a Fireman Sam Pontypandy rescue set, a hi-tech tablet children’s computer, dolls that double as bedroom lights and perennial favourite Lego.
Gary Grant, chairman of the association’s Dream Toys selection panel, said: “This year we have seen some amazing technological advancements from the toy industry.
“This does not mean to say that the toys are ‘techy’, rather that technology has been used to enrich the whole experience of play.
