It's all in the details...

GM came home with a new toy from his nanny's house yesterday (his great-grandma). Every time he visits, he comes home with at least one new thing. She is an instigator though, asking him, "Don't you want to know if I have something for you?" Really, I'm trying to teach the kid manners here!

Anyways, the toy she presents him with seems harmless enough. It's a miniature horse, seems very well made. Here's what it looks like, straight from Target's website:
Schleich Tinker Stallion

Seems harmless, right? Well, I thought so too. I'm sitting on the computer after we get home when hubby comes walking up carrying the horse with a smirk on his face. He puts it belly up right in my face, and I see it. My mouth dropped, this is a kids toy we're talking about right, ages 3 and up? Let me tell you, the manufacturer took great care in the smallest details of this horse, or the, um, not so small details, since I was staring at the biggest plastic horse you-know-what I've seen in my life.

My hubby proceeds to question me: How would you like to be the horse pee-pee painter? Do you see how carefully they painted that thing?

I've never been more grossed out by a toy than I was to be looking at that thing's thing!

Note to readers: Not a good stocking stuffer, unless you want to spend Christmas morning explaining why the horse has a "weird bump"on it's belly.

I guess "stallion" should be a warning word, even with kids' toys! Scary.

You've been tagged on my post today per my meme tagging rules :)

We have a toy horse at our house with the same "thing." Being the innocent thing that my daughter is, she thinks it's "poop." This post is hilarious!
