Nothing says fun like going to the dentist, so why not bring dentistry home to your living room? Play-Doh’s Drill 'n Fill retails for $12.99 and comes with a giant plastic mouth and enough Play-Doh to make teeth, fillings, and even braces. In case any parents are worried about this toy being too quiet, Hasbro’s ad copy boasts that the dentistry kit comes with a “noise-making drill.”

Perhaps it is time we start preparing children for the stressful occupations of the world. Maybe next year there’ll be Play-Doh kits for kids who wish to become prison wardens or air-traffic controllers. It’s never too early to prepare for a strenuous vocation. Like parenting.
