If you have kids, especially a young daughter, then you must have been living under a rock this year to not have heard about the Poopsie Surprise Unicorn toys. As popular as the original little Poopsie Surprise Unicorn toys were, the release of the “Giant” version became this years must have toy.
We could not resist getting our unicorn loving hands on one of these hot toys so we shopped and shopped until we were actually able to find one. Leading up to Christmas even retail giants like Walmart and Amazon were out of stock. We were able to strike gold at Target and here is our review.
The Giant Poopsie Surprise Unicorn is exactly what it says it is, it is a giant version of the original Poopsie Slime Surprise toys. The toy comes in a big box that you cannot see inside of so what unicorn you get is a complete surprise. Inside you will find your giant unicorn toy, packets of unicorn magic, unicorn food, unicorn sparkle, unicorn shimmer, a bottle, a toilet, underwear, a hair brush, measuring cup, storage key chain, a spoon and a cleaning toy.
The object is fairly simple you feed your unicorn a concoction of the shimmer, sparkle, food and water. You then give your unicorn an upside down shake, place it on the toilet, and press the heart button on its tummy until it poops out glittery, sparkly slime into the toilet.
After your unicorn relieves itself you clean her all up and then brush and maintain that beautiful hair. The toy comes with enough packets to this a few times.
In our opinion the package on the outside is beautiful, its colorful and has rainbows just like any unicorn toy should. It comes with a handle on top also to make carrying around the fairly large case easier.
Once you get it unwrapped it basically looks like a big white capsule. Opening it up requires unlatching three tight clips that hold it together, and is probably too difficult for a lot of little ones to open on their own. Once you can get the clips to release however it opens pretty easily.
This process while a little time-consuming is not really too difficult and is actually a lot of fun. First thing you need to do is adjust the setting on the back of the unicorn to the feeding position.
The feeding begins with the appetizer, a fresh batch of unicorn shimmer. You simply empty the packet of unicorn shimmer in the bowl and feed it to your unicorn using the provided spoon. Make sure the spoon goes all the way into the mouth and then turn the spoon a full circle to ensure the unicorn shimmer gets to it belly.
After the appetizer your unicorn will be very thirsty so fill your measuring cup with water up to the lowest line on the cup which is 5 mL. You “can” use the spoon like the directions say to give your unicorn the water but we found this to be difficult and too time consuming so we carefully poured into the mouth straight from the cup.
Now for the main course…some homemade unicorn food. To begin you will want to unscrew the lid to the provided bottle. Pour a full packet of the unicorn food into the bottle, followed by 25 mL of water which is the top line on your measuring cup. Screw the lid back on, place your finger over the straw to prevent spillage, and begin shaking the cup to mix the food and water together. Between this step and the next 5 steps, the directions recommend not allowing more than 2 minutes to pass. Now you place the straw in the unicorn’s mouth and squeeze the bottle and all contents have been emptied from the bottle.
By now you have fed your unicorn and it likely has a very full belly, so its time to poop, and by poop we mean make glittery slime. First thing you are going to want to do is switch the dial on the unicorn’s back to the rocking position. Then you will need to turn your unicorn upside down and rock it back and forth for 15 seconds.
Now the next two things you need to do are place the bowl in the toilet and remove the unicorn’s underwear Next you need to move the unicorn’s legs outwards and place it on the toilet seat. Then you simply press the heart button on its tummy and wait for the magical poopy slime to appear in the toilet bowl.
Our big mistake was being too excited and trying to play with the slime immediately…do not do this, it is just a sticky mess at this point. Follow the directions and allow it to set for 10-15 minutes in the bowl, if there is excess water mix it with the spoon.
Open a pack of unicorn magic and use half of it, as well as a little of the unicorn sparkle packet. Just a heads up you only have one packet of unicorn, so do not use all of it or you will not have anymore for future batches. After these are added mix it up with your hands until you are happy with how it looks and feels. Your key chain opens up at the bottom and can be used to store your slime, I mean poop of course.
To clean up just add more water into the unicron’s body, shake it up and push the heart as you would if it was pooping. To get any of the stubborn slime out, you can access the receptacle in the back of the unicorn and clean with the tool.
We had an absolute blast doing this together as a family. It was not too difficult or too tedious to the point where you got bored or frustrated. If you follow the directions its is fairly quick and easy and is so much fun. Its obvious why this was the hot toy of the years and cannot recommend it enough for any little unicorn lovers you may know
