Most shocking toys would not necessarily be for adults any more. We researched the market for inappropriate toys which no kid should own and shockingly, what we found, shocked us beyond imagination. Stripper Barbie, Naked Tarzan, Pregnant Barbie is to name a few. Here’s a look at Top 10 of the most shocking kids toys of all time for now. Who knows whats more to come in the future??
10.Stripper Pole Barbie Dolls
In 2009, a USB controlled pole dancing doll was released in the United Kingdom and was soon pulled from shelves of retailer. However, we can safely assume this desk toy was never actually intended for kids to play with — it seems to have been more of a novelty item that was misconstrued by angry parents
9.Vibrating Nimbus 2000
This seems innocent enough. It’s just a replica Harry Potter quidditch broom. Where’s the harm in that? Well, it’s the vibrating feature that makes this product questionable. Parents who bought the broom as a gift for their children opted to leave the batteries out. On the other hand, one innovative, if not a little disturbed, Amazon reviewer transformed the broom into an actual sex toy for his girlfriend!
8.Black “Oreo Fun Barbie” hmmm what??
In 1997, Mattel and Nabisco teamed up to release the “Oreo Fun Barbie.” Somehow, no one at either company was aware the term Oreo is an offensive and wildly politically incorrect term used to describe a black person who ‘acts like’ they’re white. So, when the dark-skinned version of the “Oreo Fun Barbie” hit store shelves there was quite an outcry.
7.Dora The Explorer Aquapet
This “virtual pet” would be a decent enough toy if it didn’t look like a male appendage or an adult toy. The skin coloured base doesn’t help it either. Surely the person who designed the toy must have realized this was not the best shape for it, or perhaps he or she just didn’t care. The giant D in the middle of the toy might not stand for Dora after all…
6.World Trade Center Airplane Toy
The toys clearly depicted a plane between two skyscrapers. These toys were no coincidence, either, as they were clearly labeled with the product number 9011. The insensitive and offensive toys were inserted into 14,000 bags of candy without anyone taking a close look at them. When customers complained the candy and toys were taken off the shelves.
5. Happy Family Midge
Sure, this was a great way to segue your child into the truth about where baby’s come from. Unfortunately, taking your entire stomach off like a turtle shell is not actually how the miracle of life works.
That small oversight was overlooked by the roaring wave of moms upset with Mattel for encouraging teen pregnancy.
4. Shape Shifter Punisher
In theory, transformer toys aren’t that odd. The Punisher, however, shape-shifted into a power pistol with the most unfortunate placement. Manufacturer Toy Biz packed too much heat into that pistol, and the whole line was a flop.
3.Rad Repeatin’ Naked Tarzan
Often referred to as the self-pleasuring Tarzan toy, this Disney action figure was supposed to have a karate chop action, but it really looks like Tarzan is doing… something else. Even worse is the yell Tarzan makes when he moves his arm up and down. This is easily one of the biggest ‘fails’ is toy history.
2.Snack Time Cabbage Patch Kid
Cabbage Patch Kids were a toy institution growing up, and no one can take that away from them. That doesn’t mean they missed the mark a couple times.
The “Snacktime Kids” edition of the doll had a motorized mouth that consumed anything from plastic snacks to human hair. Perhaps it was envy sparked from their locks of yarn, or maybe it was bath salts.
1.Lawn Darts — The Original Dangerous Kind
You can still buy lawn darts, or jarts, today, but only the redesigned safer versions with plastic tips are sold in stores. The original design for lawn darts featured a heavy metal tip that could prove to be extremely dangerous — and even deadly.
The father of a girl killed by a lawn dart when it pierced her skull managed to get them banned completely in the United States in 1988; before 1988 the metal-tipped lawn darts were banned from being marketed as children’s toys, but they were still allowed to be sold to anyone without a license.
We hope you will think twice before buying any of the above toys to your kids..
