Did the Dept of Labor Approve this Christmas “Must Have Toy”?

02 Nov

The British Toy Retailer Association has already named a toy dog that poops, Doggie Doo, the “Must Have”  Toy for the Christmas Season. For $24.99 your child can feed the dog a play-doh feed and squeeze its tail to “make” it poop. Manure Engineers in training?

The Doggie Doo is one toy this Farm Mom will not be purchasing.  My farm kids have the real version- dog and cattle.  There is not a day they do not feed their animals and clean up after them.

So it begs the question, did the U.S Department of Labor approves this?

Seriously, the proposed changes to Child Labor law prohibits anyone under 16 “to suffer or permit to work” with livestock including removing “poop” from the stalls or pens. The experience of caretaking livestock-owned or supervised work experience- teaches children great responsibility.  Not to mention the extra bonus of getting the kids off the couch.

    This is absolutely unbelievable. I too have a daughter who is 100% responsible for cleaning up after our dog and it has provided a lesson in “responsibility” as well as loving and caring for someone else.

    I will pass on this toy!

    Thanks for sharing!
