    Yikes, a pimply dick with eyes!

    (That thing makes me so glad my kid is seven.)

  • Jennifer

    Ohmigod that might be the scariest children’s toy ever! Glad it makes Leta happy.

    Happy new year!

    GOsh this thing is ugly! It resembles blotched cucumber yukkk
    i wonder how kids like this

  • susanna

    thanks for keeping us all laughing Heather. What would we housebound moms do without you?

  • tickled

    Aaak! A pox on its penile little head!

  • http://bethology.blogspot.com Beth

    Last night I dreamed I’d start 2005 with good wishes from an orange uncircumsized penis, and look what I get!

    Happy New Year, Zing Zing Zingbah!

    Happy New Year to you all, Dooce!


    That’s creepy with a capital CREEP.

  • http://midvaleschool.blogspot.com courtney

    That is one of the ugliest things I’ve ever seen. But, if it keeps the little one from screaming and distracts her long enough for you to convene the procedure, then I guess it has its purpose in life. Happy New Year!

    I just realized that Mickey Mouse is going to be the grand marshal at the Tournament of Roses parade starting in a couple of minutes.

    Now, do you think there will be a Boobah float to tie all of the weirdness together?

    hmmmmm… somehow I doubt it.

    but it would be strange if that did happen. almost as strange as dreaming about Boobah, Beth. ;)

  • bb

    I have no idea what the craze with that is..

  • http://www.boohbah.com Karen

    I just spent entirely too long on boohbah.com. It sucked me in…

  • http://www.xanga.com/bronxie Iraida

    Booh bahs are freaking creepy. They Looks like weenies. Happy New Year :D

  • http://perfectpeacefarm.blogspot.com Gordon

    I got one of those Hallmark “Wish You a Merry Christmas” snowmen. I open to suggestion on what to do with it.

  • http://www.fudgeit.org bushra

    i meant, you never know where you are with the boohbahs, innit. (see what i mean?)

    it’s no surprise that the boohbahs are from the same people behind the teletubbies…

  • Kahli

    Penile allergy?

    Happy New Year and buenos dias to all those managing and staffing and subscribing to the Blurbodoocery!


    And to anybody in the Salt Lake Metro Area whom (whom)has a drunk looking snow angel in your yard.

    Sorry, that was me… sooooo lame she is, so lame.

    I have no idea how many I slobbered on the neighborhood…

    All the best of the 05 to all y’all.

    Lisa, Angela, Pamela, Renee… I love you….

  • http://www.kempland4u.com Gooooder

    Almost as scary as Furbies!

  • http://www.desktopchronicle.com syd

    I bought my 9 month old neice the same exact toy. She loved it as much as we did. Especially when it made the farting sound. It may be scary and weird but the babe’s sure do like it :) Happy New Year!

  • http://www.livejournal.com/users/butterstar/ butterstar

    And I thought teletubbies were evil when they came out. They ain’t nothin’.

    I am soo glad I don’t have cable right now. SO GLAD.

    And I’m also quite glad my three year old doesn’t know there’s a Limbo Elmo out there to BUY. It’s bad enough she interrupts my valuable internet time to play the damn game on sesamestreet.com.

    Have a boobah-free 2005, to those who wish it. To those who use it as a distraction for your wee one so you can go have sneaky boobah sex, have a boobah-filled 2005.

  • Kathryn

    Goddamm, that is not what I want to see when finally rousing myself after a night of vomitting, New Years Eve style. And why why why must it have warts all over its face??

  • http://moxiemoron.diaryland.com Moxie

    Zing Zing needs to go get those genital warts burnt off.

  • http://www.dasbecca.com/ becca

    Happy New Year!
    We have no Boombahs in our house (and am happy, as they seem sort of like a creepy toy that would come to life in a 1980′s movie), but we do get roused every morning by a dancing Elmo. So it’s a draw.

  • http://ganman.typepad.com Scott

    These things may scare an entire generation of females away from the male genitalia. Yikes!

    Happy New Year everyone.

  • http://missdomestic.com paige

    Oh God, it DOES look like an uncircumsized penis!


  • http://humanwrites.blogspot.com Dr. Johnny Fever

    Kiss my ass, you little orange bastard!

  • Sara from WI

    Do I detect a pile of new Fisher Price plastic toys in the background? They’ll look so nice in your living room!

  • http://shiz.typepad.com/ Shiz


    It looks like someone made a toy out of a sesame seed bun.

  • http://www.houseinprogress.com jm

    OHG! WTF??!

    This SO proves the ethological theory that humans are drawn to creatures with unusually large eyes below the midline of a large rounded head shape. (Yes, I am a Social Psychology geekess.) Because I cannot explain kids’ attraction to this…um…thing in any other way.

    I wonder what other whacked out characters someone could make that have the “large eyes” list of characteristics going on. Hmmm. I’m no artist, but I’m getting out my sketchpad…

  • GMM

    As if it has human-like eyes. How creepy. Happy New Year!!

  • http://www.lemonlight.org Angie M

    If we’re looking at Boobah, does that mean you’re up to what I think you’re up to?

  • http://lizzieism.pajama-cat.com Ehle

    And it’s Tennessee orange… I’ll bet it makes a lot of annoying sounds, too.

  • http://shenuts.com sarcastic journalist

    i think it looks like a penis because all those parents are having sex during the show…

  • http://teenpulp.blogspot.com Erin

    My friend bought the pink one for her two year old son (the obligatory STD jokes were made about it, of course.) Every time I go over to their house, I hear “Erin! Bee boo! Erin! Bee BOOOO!” and that fucking toy will go flying past my head.

    He also thinks that Teletubbies are a branch of “Bee Boo,” perhaps some distant cousins. Man.

  • Julie


    Must remove my eyeballs and scrub them clean.

  • http://humanwrites.blogspot.com Dr. Johnny Fever

    I look at that figurine and I think to myself that some demented children’s television programmer was looking at his own unit and he said, “Hey! That would make a great PBS show!”

  • http://www.typealice.com Gillian

    I’m surprised you and Jon can actually have sex while those things are dancing around your television screen. That’d totally turn me off.

  • http://holyschmidt.blogspot.com Holy Schmidt

    I guess it’s no worse than most of us watching HR Puff-n-stuff or Fragle Rock when we were little. What about those Seseme Street charachters, I think they were aliens, that only moved around and said “meep, meep, meep, meep”? Those were about as scary.

  • Miguel

    Where’s Leta? I wanted to see Leta
    :( :( :(

  • http://www.pissybritches.blogspot.com Stephanie

    Those things scare me!

  • http://dirtyfloorsandfilthyjokes.blogspot.com/ Closet Metro

    Scott – You may be right. Thank God that we’re memebers of the Sesame Street generation and not the Boobah generation. I don’t need any more challenges in my love life.

  • http://ganman.typepad.com Scott

    Metro – Word. However, it may come in handy for when you actually don’t want to go out with a woman and don’t know how to turn her down nicely. Just whip out your Boobah and the girl will run screaming for the hills.

    I picture a scene like this somewhere in the future:

    Girl: “I just can’t! It looks like a Boobah.”

    Guy: “Would it help if it wasn’t Orange?”

    Girl: “I just can’t stop seeing those freaky eyes staring at me.”

    Guy: “Damn you Boobah. Khhhhaaaaaannnnnn!”

  • http://ebirkhol.diaryland.com e

    hmmm, seeing that gives me the sudden urge to participate in the procedure ;-)

  • http://nylrebma.blogspot.com amberlyn

    you know, i feel qualified in saying this because i have no children, but my friend does. and what i think is that kids are always going to be fascinated with brightly colored things that move and make weird/interesting noises. i base this BRILLIANT THEORY THAT HAS NEVER BEEN THOUGHT OF BEFORE on my friend’s kid, who is absolutely fascinated by the daft punk “around the world” video. you could parade two tons of ice cream and a dancing clown in front of her: she will not be shaken from that video. i hope this means she’ll become a cool indie director one day, and not a heroin addict or something.

  • http://dirtyfloorsandfilthyjokes.blogspot.com/ Closet Metro

    Scott – Then again, this just might be a subliminal way to make the ladies a little more comfortable with Litte Richard: “It kind of reminds me of my favorite toy when I was a little kid…”

  • reh

    Boohbah is the Hebrew word for doll. It is totally not okay for them to give a Hebrew name to an uncircumcised penis. That is all.

  • Jena

    Leta looks a little funny today…



  • http://doesntmatter Amber

    lol that really cracks me up, Dooce.

  • Seajay

    We got our son the yellow one. He stared at it for a bit and then reached over and poked it.

    Happy new year!

    It’s the Pooka Monster!

  • http://carefullyplannedprocrastination.blogspot.com/ becky

    Kids do seem to love the craziest toys. I got my niece a Whoozit for Xmas. Everyone thought it looked like a scary clown, but she loves it! I will have to look into a Boohbah toy for her next gift.

    Happy New Year Dooce!
