Poopsie Slime Surprise!, or known more as simply Poopsie, is a slime kit + Blind Bag Collectable brand by MGA Entertainment, based on the 2010s trend of "unicorn poop". The toys usually come in toilet paper-themed packaging and usually include about 7-25 surprises depending on what you're getting. The slime is made when "Unicorn Food"note  is mixed with water. Currently there are about four ongoing lines of the Poopsie brand. These include:

  • Poopsie Slime Surprise Packs: The first and main toys produced, a mini slime kit that includes a pack of "Unicorn Food", a pack of "Unicorn Magic"note , "Unicorn Sparkle"note , a collectible mixing container parodying an existing brand, and a Talking Poo keychain that serves as a slime container.
  • Surprise Unicorn: A large unicorn doll that 'magically poops' slime when fed the unicorn food partially mixed with water along with "Unicorn Shimmer"note  There are about four unicorns to collect so far, their names being Whoopsie Doodle, Oopsie Starlight, Rainbow Brightstar, and Dazzle Darling.

    • Glitter Unicorn: Like the Surprise Unicorns, but with a glittery coating. There's two so far, them being Stardust Sparkle and Blingy Beauty.
    • Surprise Llama: Llama-unicorn hybrids with a Surprise Unicorn-like style. Like the Glitter Unicorns, there's two to get: Bonnie Blanca and Pearly Fluff.
  • Sparkly Critters: These ones come in soda can-like packaging instead, and feature small dolls based around unicorns mixed with different animals, (and as of Wave 2, anything really like the Cutie Tooties mentioned below) while also including currently two characters from the 'Surprise Unicorn' line. These ones have the slime powder already in them, so they just have to be fed water. Some will 'poop' slime, while others will 'spit' it up instead.
  • Cutie Tooties: These ones are simple figurines that come with premade slime and are packaged in a resealable bag. The character figurines are presented as practically anything mixed with unicorns, really.
  • Rainbow Surprise: Human girl dolls in which you mix the slime and put it on the doll's clothes in a form of "D.I.Y Slime Fashion". Like the Surprise Unicorns, there are four of them: Rainbow Dream, Pixie Rose, Blue Skye, and Amethyst Rae. In 2020, the series was remade into a separate toyline known as Rainbow High, with an all-new cast of characters.

    • Fantasy Friends: Humanoid fairies and mermaids that are almost like the Sparkly Critters, but they only spit slime. They also fart glitter.

As of late 2020, no other toys of the Poopsie brand have been announced, implying that the toyline has quietly been canceled.

Tropes

  • Alliterative Name: Dazzle Darling, Bonnie Blanca, Blingy Beauty, Stardust Sparkle.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: Aside from the obvious Talking Poo keychains, a couple of the Cutie Tooties and Sparkly Critters are sentient plants, clouds, or even stars with unicorn horns.
  • Animesque: The main style.
  • Anthropomorphic Food: A majority of the Sparkly Critters, Cutie Tooties, and even some of the Talking Poo keychains (we know, ew) are based around bananas, pineapples, donuts, and hamburgers.
  • Bare Your Midriff: All four of the Surprise Unicorns are dressed like this. Despite being heavily implied to be toddlers.
  • Black Comedy: Rather subtle, but Cluck-A-Doo is a chicken-like poop keychain. They come with a soda cup from a parody of Kentucky Fried Chicken, which, you know... uses chickens as its main source of food.
  • Bland-Name Product: Mixing containersnote  that go with the toys will almost always be labeled with a Toilet Humour-themed parody of an existing soda, perfume, fast food, drink, or coffee brand. These include "Barfbucks", "Dunk'N Deuce", "Poopda Express", and "Wipe Castle". Makes you wonder what the unicorns in the Poopsie universe are really consuming...
  • Bunnies for Cuteness: Cheeky the rabbit-unicorn hybrid and Bundae the bunny-like poop keychain.
  • Cute Kitten: Chloe, Drama, Prism, three cat-unicorn hybrids, and Purr-fect Poo, which is exactly what it sounds like.
    • Splash and Fins are mermaid-unicorn-cat hybrids.
  • Excited Show Title!: Poopsie Slime Surprise!
  • Exposed Animal Bellybutton: All the unicorns have heart-shaped bellybuttons.
  • Flintstone Theming: All the Bland Name Products and half the phrases used are Toilet Humor-related.
  • Girlish Pigtails: Whoopsie Doodle and Blingy Beauty.
  • Gross-Out Show: Probably the first one marketed towards girls. Granted, it doesn't overemphasize on how "gross" it is, but it's still unicorn poop.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: Quite a lot of Toilet Humour-themed puns throughout.
  • Inelegant Blubbering/Ocular Gushers: The two raindrop Cutie Tooties, Drip and Puddles, cry this way.
  • Inexplicably Tailless: None of the Surprise/Glitter Unicorns have tails, in spite of the Sparkly Critters and Cutie Tooties based on other animals having them.
  • Invisible Parents: A line in the music video is "I drive my parents crazy", implying that the rather young-looking unicorns do have parents, but in the commercials and shorts they wander around on their own, with no adult in sight.
  • Meaningful Name: Two of the Surprise Unicorns are named Whoopsie Doodle and Oopsie Starlight. Very fitting considering what the Surprise Unicorns are meant to do.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: The Sparkly Critters and a majority of the Cutie Tooties are all unicorns mixed with other animals.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted. There are two characters named Stripes in the Sparkly Critters line, one being a tiger and another a zebra.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Singe, Spark, and Sizzle are dragon-unicorn hybrids.
  • Rapunzel Hair: The unicorns' hair reaches their hooves.
  • Shout-Out: Aside the Bland Name Products, notable Talking Poo keychain characters are Finding Doo-Doo, Ari-Smell, Holly Gopoopie, and Manurlyn Monroe.
    • There's another Talking Poo keychain known as Andoodie.
    • Then there's Dumpee, based on the Quiznos Spongmonkeys of all things.
    • Drama of Sparkly Critters heavily resembles the Grumpy Cat meme.
    • Bonnie Blanca's "Sparkly Things" t-shirt is clearly based on Stranger Things.
  • Talking Poo: The poop keychains.
  • Toilet Humour: It's about unicorn poop. What did you expect?
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Whoopsie Doodle and Oopsie Starlight seem to be more tomboyish, while Rainbow Brightstar and Dazzle Darling are more girly.
  • True Blue Femininity: Dazzle Darling has a blue coat and is one of the girlier unicorns.
