Fart Launchers’ Are Taking Over Kids’ Christmas Lists


Toy insiders and wincing parents say that the Buttheads Fart Launcher 3000 — a Nerf gun-like gadget that shoots farts instead of darts — is topping off kids’ wish lists this year.

“This is my worst nightmare,” mom Angie Wong, the 42-year-old founder of the Facebook group Brooklyn Moms, says. She recently caved and got the gas-blasting gizmo for her 5-year-old son, Will, and 7-year-old daughter, Maddie. “I can see that thing [being] used on my face one unsuspecting morning.” According to its product description, the flatulent firearm, developed by WowWee, can spread stench up to 10 feet across a room and is “best used in well-ventilated areas or outdoors.”

It’s intended for kids ages 5 and up, comes with a cartridge capable of “100-plus” blasts and is “silent but deadly,” allowing users to sneak up on their victims. (If it’s the cheese-cutting noise you seek, WowWee also manufactures Buttheads figurines — popular little dolls whose faces are butts, which make farting noises sans smell.) The Fart Launcher’s reek, “while incredibly accurate … is organic, plant-based, doesn’t get caught in fabric and dissipates in minutes,” WowWee brand manager Andrew Yanofsky tells The Post.
