It looks like young people are starting to collect 'Turds'. The concept took off in the UK and it is spreading world wide. The Sun is calling it the, "Funniest concept ever," while the Daily Mail is saying, "Turds should be banned it's disgusting."

Implications - Turd Toys were created in Nottingham England in 1997 and launched in 2004. Since then, they've become a cult favorite with over 16,000 fans. There's hundreds of characters choose from, some of which even takes the form of pop cultural favorite such as Robocop. Each of the figures has its own log book and bowlography giving them more personality. The company has even gone digital with its website launching animated shorts each month as well as miniature games. Sure it may seem disgusting, but the Turd Toys quirkiness shouldn't deter you from at least checking it out.
