50 Epic Toy Design Fails That Are So Bad, It’s Hilarious
You can often find a lot of variety within a kid's toy collection. And I'm not just talking about old noisy cars and soft cuddly teddies.
This time, Bored Panda is focusing on the creepy ones. Those that parents hope their child will never notice or at least come across in the store because there's something disturbing about them. Like Bilbo Baggins who looks like an addict. Or bootleg dolls with anatomical deformities.
So continue scrolling to check out some of the funniest, strangest, and downright scariest toys ever made. I don't know what their creators were hoping for, but these abominations are probably responsible for one too many nightmares.
My Wife Asked If I Wanted To See The Creepiest Doll In Her Collection. I Was Not Prepared
While I understand why people wouldn't like these atrocities in their home, shielding kids from scariness entirely isn't ideal too.
A survey of 1,003 UK parents by online bookseller The Book People found that 33% would steer clear of books for their children containing frightening characters. Asked about the fictional creations they found scariest as children, a fifth of parents cited the Wicked Witch of the West from L Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, with the Child Catcher from Ian Fleming’s Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang in second place. Third was the Big Bad Wolf, in his grandmother-swallowing Little Red Riding Hood incarnation, fourth the Grand High Witch from Roald Dahl’s The Witches, and fifth Cruella de Vil, from Dodie Smith’s The Hundred and One Dalmatians.
