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.
