50 Epic Toy Design Fails That Are So Bad, It’s Hilarious
We've seen our share of crappy design, but store shelves are so abundant with them, there's always more to poke fun at. For example, toys. They're usually designed and made by adults, so you'd expect a considerable amount of consideration before manufacturing them, right? Well, not so much. Bored Panda has collected some of the most questionable toys to prove that some designers have no clue what they're doing.
From a doll head, used as an actual pony tail to a psychotic Elmo, it seems ridiculous someone actually greenlighted these ideas. We're pretty sure, however, that the employees who did had a 'long talk' with their bosses after the fact. Scroll down to check out what we mean and vote for the ones that made you cringe the most.

This Fantastic Toy
true story: I had something like this as a kid (4/5yo) and I really thought that's what the male genitalia does (I can't ask then, culture thing). fast forward a year or so I had a dental emergency and my dad taking me to the dentist and decided to use his motorcycle so we can get there faster. I was so shocked I really thought he'd really would do the thing but I was even more shocked when he didn't bc I thought he didn't do it bc of my sake. what if the police stopped him for not putting the thing in the thing?? anyway, I learned the real thing soon after. I felt so stupid.

This toy is for very small kids, for them there's nothing wrong with this. Also, if not for this post, and I had seen this toy somewhere, honestly I would have not thought anything negative otherwise.

I actually thought #1 with the sad cactus inside was brilliant. It helps you feel better knowing your dog gets a second chance with a toy they rip apart... and having to reflect on their actions every time they see that sad face, lol.
yes! i love the sad cactus! very clever and so funny!
But why does it have to be sad...

actually this toy was designed that way. there is another design that is an acorn, which reveals a sad nut
Stephanie Pyke Good response!
I must admit most of them are very funny. Some fails, like the soccer ball printing or paw concentration camp are brilliant XD But I also have to say, that we - adults - are perverts :P A kid won't see anything wrong in a doll figurine with a hole where you attach the wooden branch or the pupming hole in a baloon between its legs. It's our filthy minds making most of these toys embarassing :P
Yeah, but it's mostly adults who design these toys, so.. ...
