Different, Disturbing, & Slightly Disgusting Toys

While perusing the sale ads last Sunday, I was amazed how many odd toys there were out there.  Some were unique, while others could be considered slightly disturbing or downright nasty.  Besides the first toy listed, how many will Santa be setting under your tree?

This one is cool. It is the only thing in this post I’d  buy…but for myself. The FAO Schwarz  Muppet Whatnot Kit lets you create your own Muppet Whatnot. {Whatnots are those zany-looking extras you see in every Muppet production.} I want my own Muppet.

FAO Schwarz Orange or Blue Muppet Whatnot Kits include a Muppet Whatnot body, 3 wigs, 3 pair of eyes, 3 noses, glasses and a pupeteer rod.  $59.99 @toysrus.com

Aren’t we lucky: Doggie Doo, Europe’s top new action game, has crossed the pond just in time for the holidays. Kids feed and walk the little plastic pup. When they squeeze his leash he makes a gassy sound that gets louder and louder until…plop! You have your own, fresh doggie doo. The first to clean up after the dog three times wins. I wonder if it is scented?  WTF?
Only $17 @toysrus.com

Kids + ninja swords = Bad Idea.  
Fruit Ninja Game is a takeoff of the digital application. The object of the Fruit Ninja Game is to slash and splatter fruit like a true ninja warrior. What happens when they get bored with the plastic and decide to raid the fridge and knife drawer? Danger Danger. $20 @toysrus.com

I’m not really sure what to say about these things. Ugly Dolls are plush toys and they are…well, ugly. They look pretty much like how one of my sewing projects would turn out. So I think I will save the $20 each and just glue some felt together. Or perhaps marketers are hoping parents will reminisce about the days of Ren and Stimpy and want to share them with their kids (recommended ages 3-5).

Animal Planet Remote Control Charlie the Capuchin Monkey  can sit on your shoulder and “unleash cheeky phrases on your friends and family!” I am dying to know what these “cheeky” phrases are — swearing? Dirty jokes? Do they simulate throwing poo like the monkeys at the zoo? This interactive toy features many mannerisms, sound effects, and movements which really bring him to life. All I can think of is Betsey, the cute, cuddly, and diseased monkey from the movie Outbreak. My son would freaking love this (for a day).  $25 @toysrus.com

Animal Planet Radio Controlled Rattle Snake looks and moves like the real thing. Realistic skin and serpentine movement mean this can easily be mistaken for a live snake. As it slithers in an S pattern, its tongue flicks in and out and eyes light up. This could make Christmas day with the family highly entertaining as screams of terror echo through the house. You might even get a trip to the ER for a heart attack. Great way to clear out the house and signal everyone that it’s time to go home. $29 @toysrus.com



“The Wow!”  My Keepon  is the dancing robot that moves to any music. A tiny microphone in My Keepon’s nose (ewww) allows him to hear the music you play or even the rhythms you make yourself. My Keepon listens for the tempo of the music and matches the beat with an uncanny sense of timing.
Look — can’t you see it’s dancing — wait, it moved left, then right, up, down — seriously, how much can two Nerf balls dance?
$49 @toysrus.com


Masquerades are all about mystery, and so are the Bratz Masquerade DollsRemember all the slutty Halloween costumes so many of us were complaining about? Now we can give our daughters a leg up on deciding if she wants to be a sexy angel or come-hither fairy next year by playing with these dolls.  Maybe it’s all a plot — if parents see these dolls around the house for a few years we will be desensitized to the trashy tween costumes. And each doll comes with makeup and a child-sized matching “sassy” mask so our little girls can practice for their nights out full of mystery and disguise. At least they’re not wearing fishnets.

21.99 @toysrus.com

From jumping over creeks in the backwoods, all the way to the skatepark, the General Lee BMX Bike will take your rider everywhere he needs to go. Do kids now even know what this is? Are the Dukes of Hazard making yet another retro comeback?  At least there isn’t a big ‘ole Confederate flag  license plate dangling from the handlebars. {sigh} $179 @ walmart.com

    Okay… I wasn't sure whether to laugh or be thoroughly horrified by that Doggie Doo game. Can you imagine actually playing that with your kids? Actually, you know what… I CAN imagine playing that with my kids. I bet my son would absolutely LOVE it. He thinks anything having to do with butts and poops is just the best and most clever thing ever. *sigh*

    My daughter, on the other hand, would be most likely to pick up the "Doo," say, "What's this? TREAT?" and proceed to eat it. (she's done this with her own poo… that's how I know… fortunately I stopped her from eating her own poo… but still…)

    Anyhoo, I loved this post! There must be some VERY, VERY bored people out there trying to come up with new ideas for children's toys. Whatever happened to good old-fashioned Hungry Hungry Hippo? That game kept my sister and me entertained for YEARS when we were kids. *sigh*

    Oh, and I'd love it if you'd like to join my Triberr tribe, the Funny Mamas! We are what we say we are… funny gals who write original content! Let me know if you're interested… I'd need to send you an invite via email! 🙂

    All right… I'll stop hogging your comment space now! LOL Have a great holiday!

    Actually, I like them because they are all attention grabbing and kids will really be curious with this kinds of toys. If only I am a kids, then I will also be enjoying this kind of toys too. Thus, I also like the doggie doo video that you have here, it is really nice and interesting.
