    Gross as it sounds, there's now a (F)art Launcher 

    Designed for kids 6+, it's the Buttheads Fart Launcher 3000 from WowWee. (I know who ever thought that smelly F word would become so big in toys!) This giant handheld device is very colorful, but it does give off a dreaded bad odor when the trigger is pulled. Fortunately it wasn't horrendous for me because we were in a big open exhibition space, but I image in a room you would head for the nearest open window. I felt a little better about it when I saw on one of the signs at WowWee that the terrible smell is made with 100% plant-based material that dissipates in minutes. The scent canister includes 100+ rounds of farty blasts. Refill canisters available separately. At Toy Fair early this year I thought I had heard the F Launcher was also going to include a 'bubblegum' scent canister, but it wasn't mentioned at this event. sp I don't know if that's true. It's not on the WowWee website as of 8/9/19. Ages: 6+ MSRP: $19.99

    Available: Amazon, Target, Walmart in Fall 2019
