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.

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.
