Meet the Ugliest Holiday Toy of 2013

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- A hideous looking dog that burps and farts is becoming one of the bestselling toys this holiday season. Adults might react with an "ewww," but this toy elicits "ooohs" and "aahs" from the little ones.

Aptly named The Ugglys, the new electronic hand puppet from Moose Toys, makes rude noises such as farting and burping, in addition to snoring, growling and barking sounds. Using a button on the pup's collar, kids can manipulate the pitch, making the sounds even more disgusting.

According to, a Web site that reviews toys, video games and entertainment products, The Ugglys pug (approximate retail price is $29.99) is very popular because many kids -- especially those between 5 and 8 years old -- appreciate a good fart joke. Blame it on the movie, Despicable Me 2, released last summer, which featured a fart blaster.

Ugly or not, parents will buy the toy if they know it has a lot of play value, says Jim Silver, CEO of "They don't want to buy a toy that their child will play with for 10 minutes and then just toss aside," he says. "They want toys that are engaging that the child would want to play with -- in different ways -- every day."

From ugly and messy to cute and cuddly, here are some more interactive toys that hit shelves just in time for the holidays.
