Why Are You Doing This Hasbro

One of the latest Hasbro products targeted at families trying to get some small measure of peace from their little ones, Don’t Step In It is a game that, quite literally, involves not stepping on shit. Play-Doh shit, to be precise.

Hasbro showed off the new board game at the Hasbro Toy Fair, with the box proclaiming the game as “blindfolded, poop-dodging fun”:

The only time “poop-dodging” and “fun” belong in the same sentence is when your friend drunkenly trips over a cowpat and face-first into another cowpat. But those moments are far and few between, and not something you want to replicate in your house. Or with children.

If you buy this for your children, do not be surprised when they eventually tell you that they don’t love you. There are much better ways to entertain your spawn, as we’ve written about in the past.
