Barbie Does Yard Cleanup

This may be a sign of the apocalypse...or some sort of weird, Mattel in-joke. But Barbie has a new companion -- a golden retriever puppy named Tanner.

Oh, our favorite plastic doll has had pets in the past, but this one is special. This one poops.

Seriously. You poke special plastic biscuits into its mouth, and out they come from the other end, ready to be picked up by Barbie's special magnetic pooper-scooper. Because, well...to be honest I have no idea.

[Edited to add: yes, as far as I can tell the biscuits go in and come out in the same form. So, no little kids will have to "refill" the puppy's butt with plastic poop. That's the first thing the Adorable Husband asked!]

That is exactly what I was wondering when I saw this in the news. But why would a puppy want to eat poop-shaped and poop-colored biscuits? Wouldn't a puppy want to eat dog-bone-shaped biscuits that smell like chicken?

Oh wait, Grissom eats the real thing......I withdraw my question.
