One of the most in-demand toys this holiday season stinks. Really, really stinks.
The Buttheads Fart Launcher 3000 is a stink bomb for the 21st century: Shaped similarly to a Nerf gun, it has a handle, a trigger, and stink cartridges, which kids can blast on unsuspecting family members and friends.
The Far Launcher can blast ‘farts’ up to ten feet away and has enough bottled flatulence for over 100 blasts.

Yuck! According to the brand, the noxious odor is made from 100 per cent plant-based material, and the smell dissipates in minutes
The toy — which is being called a parent’s worst nightmare — comes from WowWee, which also sells Fingerlings and official Baby Shark merchandise.
‘This fart launcher is powered by the deadliest farts!’ reads the description on Amazon, where it’s on sale for $17.99.
The purple and green gun comes with one stink cartridge, which kids need to load into the fart chamber.
They then pull the lever to lock it into position and pull the trigger to ‘send a fart forward towards it’s victim.’
According to the brand, the noxious odor is made from 100 per cent plant-based material, and the smell dissipates in minutes.
WowWee brand manager Andrew Yanofsky told The New York Post that the smell, ‘while incredibly accurate … is organic, plant-based, doesn’t get caught in fabric and dissipates in minutes.’
Tush: The brand is also banking on selling its Buttheads figurines, dolls which have butts for faces

Oddly, though, the toy doesn’t make a fart sound, with the fun coming from the stench alone.
‘This is my worst nightmare,’ Angie Wong, founder of the private Facebook group Brooklyn Moms, added.
‘Gross toys are super popular with kids, from poop and farts to snotty slime,’ Marissa DiBartolo, editor-in-chief of the Toy Insider, added. ‘Potty humor is pretty much a guaranteed hit with kids.’
That’s why the brand is also banking on selling its Buttheads figurines, dolls which have butts for faces.
They include a zombie named Brainfart, The Grim Ripper, a robot named Robutt, a ninja named Tushi, a scuba diver named Bubbles, a mummy named King Butt, a knight named Sir Flushalot, and an alien named Uranus.
Christmas list: Last year, Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorn was a popular holiday toy
All things girly: The unicorns, which have colorful hair and sparkly horns, come with crop tops and diapers
Anatomically correct? Slime comes out of a heart-shaped hole on the unicorn’s bottom
In action: The toy is activated using a heart-shaped button on its stomach that then produces the ‘poop’ slime
Last year, a toy called ‘Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorn’ was the it-buy of the holiday season.
The Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorn is a colorful unicorn toy that comes with a bottle, a potty, and slime mix. Kids can feed the slime mix to the unicorn, then push its heart-shaped bellybutton — and out through its heart-shaped butt hole comes colorful, sparkly slime.
The toy, which retails for $49.99, went viral last fall thanks to attention-grabbing commercials and extended YouTube ads in which little girls unboxed and played with Poopsie, demonstrating how to use the toy and then playing with the sparkly goo that comes out her rear.
There are four different Poopsie Slime Surprise Unicorns, and they come in boxes that hide the content — so which one a child gets is a surprise.
They have names like Dazzle Darling, Whoopsie Doodle, Rainbow Brightstar, and Oopsie Starlight.
Ahead of Christmas last year, the toy proved so popular that some parents complained that Target and Walmart sold out when they tried to buy.
