REVIEW: Dookie-Poo, Dookie-Bloo and Chorocco Tofu
You probably have seen the new Dookie-Poo plush line designed by artist Manny Galán. Produced by ESC-Toy and under license by Chaotic Unicorn, the line revolves around Dookie-Poo – a burrowing Elf-Chidna. The first three characters produced in plush form are Dookie-Poo, Dookie-Bloo (Dookie changes colors) and Chorocco Tofu.
Dookie-Poo is not the smartest of all the Poos in Pooville but he tries real hard and he has good intentions. Dookie never quits because he's just too dumb to do so. He tries way beyond the point of all reasoning. Dookie doesn't think much about anything. In fact he almost never thinks at all.
Chorocco Tofu is Dookie's best friend in all the world. Even though she lives in Pooville, Tofu isn't really a Poo. She was once a pink pearl eraser who absorbed all the knowledge she ever erased. She's a hyper active genius who is constantly inventing things. Unlike Dookie-Poo, Chorocco Tofu thinks way too much about everything.
As with most plushies, the Dookie-Poo line will either come packaged in a regular plastic bag or free to breathe. Each of the plush toys come with an attached tag that gives you a list of humorous instructions about the character.
The Dookie-Poo and Dookie-Bloo plushies are the same design, just
different colors. Both have funny little butts highlighted using thread. They are approximately 10 ½” tall by 10” wide.
While Dookie-Poo is limited to a run of 300 pieces, there are only 100
of the more limited Dookie-Bloo plush available.
Chorocco Tofu is about 10 ½” tall by 8” wide. She is limited to a
run of 300 total pieces. All of the plushies are very soft and
recommended for anyone 3 years or older. And I’m guessing if you’re
reading this…you fall into that category.
This plush line is all-around fun. The story is very humorous. The
characters are great. And the product is very well produced. ESC-Toy
has put out some impressive items over the past year or so. But
these might be my favorites so far.
And the line really has something for everyone. I’m sure that Chorocco
Tofu will be popular with the girls (is it politically incorrect to say
that?). And who wouldn’t love a toy with dookie or poo in the name?
And this one has them both!
So the only question I have is…"is Dookie-Poo actually poo?” It
doesn’t appear that way from the information included with the
character. It sounds like he’s a burrowing mole. But then again, I
would have thought that Chorocco Tofu was tasty bean curd, when in
fact, she’s an old pink eraser.
