What our experts think
Predictably the children found this very funny and we like that the ‘poop’ is a multi-coloured ball, as it gets the message across without being disgusting! Children followed the pattern of eating, going to the toilet, wiping and flushing and this is a great way for them to practise this routine.
Understanding hygiene and self care is important for children to become independent. There is also a puzzle to guide the poop through the pipes, helping children develop their logical thinking and fine motor skills.
It would be even better if...
After watching the monster do a ‘number two’ and wipe himself, children are expected to high-five him! A few pointed out that he should have washed his hands first – as well as making the high-five more celebratory and less off-putting, it would teach children the important practise of washing your hands after the toilet.
