Coming up with an idea for a cool, money making, ‘must-have-at-christmas’ kids toy is harder than it sounds. It takes a lot of work, trial and error and knowing what kinds of things kids are into. Sometimes you nail it, but other times some ideas really do need to stay on the drawing board. Some things make seem to make sense on paper, but once they’re brought to life, they turn out to be the most creepy, disturbing or low down dirty shit I’ve ever seen.
I mean sure, kids don’t know any better and they’re pretty innocent so the deeper implications of what these toys mean might be lost on them. Except we know, and we’re definitely not going to be buying this crap for our kids. I mean, look at this one: it’s a baby you can shave. Now I understand how puberty works and you start to grow fur where no fur used to be, but I most certainly don’t have that volume of hair on my calves. This is too far.
There’s no need to scar the kids any more than they already are. But seriously though, who though of these?
