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.
Its 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 its 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 Launchers reek, while incredibly accurate is organic, plant-based, doesnt get caught in fabric and dissipates in minutes, WowWee brand manager Andrew Yanofsky tells The Post.
