Baby doll Kong Suni is all the rage in South Korea.

And why wouldn't she be?

Cute as a button with her big Bambi eyes and rosy cheeks, the baby doll -- created by Korean toy manufacturer Young Toys -- comes with candy-colored accessories and a catchy theme song reminiscent of a jaunty carousel ride.

Designed to be a potty training aid, the gassy baby doll eats, farts and, in one version, even comes with a tiny commode and an itty-bitty smiling turd that can be flushed.

All one needs to do is rub Kong Suni's little tummy, and the wide-eyed doll will fart on command.

Kong Suni costs between $22 and $30, depending on the version of the doll and where it's purchased, notes Cute In Korea blog.

According to Inquisitr.com, the farting baby doll is the "must-have toy" in South Korea these days.

Citing Kong Suni's popularity and South Korea's toilet-themed amusement park, as well as the "world's biggest toilet" which is located in Japan, the news blog said that Asian countries seem to be a "bit more open and…experimental than others" when it comes to bathroom-related activities.

But the fact is, America is not exactly devoid of its own toileting toys.

Hasbro's Baby Alive doll, which has been on the market for a number of years, may not fart, but she sure knows how to poop and pee:
