Friday Fun Stuff: Inappropriate Toys

Happy Friday to you. We’re already past the midway point of November and people might be looking toward doing some Christmas shopping. So, in light of that, I thought I’d share this hilarious video from the Ellen show, featuring Ms. Degeneres showing off inappropriate toys. I won’t think of ET Phone Home the same way, ever again.

    Hahaha, they are so bad, you just have to laugh and shake your head at the same time. I want to know who came up with the ideas and then who said, “Jackpot! We’ll make ’em all.” :O

      Yeah, that’s the thing that’s always so amazing about toys from big companies — that people actually sat in a room, thought it was a good idea, and got approval from someone on a higher-up level to make the toy. Yet, no one saw the problem with it. But, I guess, in the end, it was good for us, because we got a good laugh.

    Bwahahaha! Oh, that’s priceless, RJ 🙂 Holy cow–what were the manufacturers thinking? Thanks for the laugh.

      Yes, it’s amazing these toys made it past the approval stage. I guess it just goes to show that toys need beta testers the way books need beta readers.
