Advertising to children can't be an easy job, and every toy company under the sun is doing their best to be the next big thing. Sure, things like Transformers and Polly Pocket seemed to be licenses to print money from the get-go, but who could've predicted the popularity of things like Furbies and Tickle Me Elmo? In the toy world, advertising is everything.
Every toy ends up trying to have a witty name, but in the case of these 13 toys, their names ended up less witty and more... filthy.
I'm pretty sure you'll get slapped if you invite someone over to play with your Wooly Willy.
Not sure what's worse, the name or the toy...
I'm kinda afraid to play this game.
Um... all I can say is "why?"
I never realized how raunchy this toy name was until now.
I feel like there's a market for this one, but to CONSENTING ADULTS!
The toy names just get crazier from here...
This one I'm all for. F*** the Smurfs.

Guys, seriously, what the hell?
No, SERIOUSLY, did nobody catch this?
This is just creepy on so many levels.
My Little Pony's been getting pretty weird.
I'm pretty sure I've seen a completely different toy called "Dr. Drill 'N Fill..."
So, there are a few things from your childhood that stick out as the best things ever. Disney movies, overalls and so many scrunchies. What else did we love? Nickelodeon cartoons! Hey Arnold, Rocko's Modern Life, Ren and Stimpy and Spongbob Squarepants, all of the shows were the absolutely amazing and there was an endless supply of them. They were constantly making new hilarious cartoons for us and we consumed them faster than they could even imagine. Sure, Nickelodeon is still around, but we don't get as much time to watch it as we used to. But what if you
When we were kids, we didn't have all these fidget spinners to flip around in our hands, but that doesn't mean that we didn't have something to play with! We had to keep our hands busy somehow and our ways were obviously the best. We had a bunch of different things to play with, each of them just as ridiculous as the ones they make now! I mean, some of these didn't even really do anything but we still collected them like crazy! How many do you remember? 1. Crazy BonesThese were essentially just plastic little figures that you would
We all know and love Cabbage Patch Kids right? They are cute, cuddly and adorable. Then there are the Garbage Pail Kids. They are not cute, not cuddly, and adorable but probably almost as popular. These horrifyingly bizarre creations were made as sort of the parody of the Cabbage Patch Kids. They were specifically designed to be as disgusting and offensive as possible (in contrast to their inspiration) which was 100% their appeal. This was of course before the Cabbage Patch Dolls became terrifying enough on their own.Parents hated them, schools despised them, but kids were obsessed. In 1987
Play-Doh was one of the best toys ever. They had so many different sets that were so fun to play with and I know for certain you remember that smell. There were a few sets that were the most desirable of them all. The best of the best, the top of our Christmas lists, or the things we wished for when we blew out our birthday candles. There are so many classic kits, let's see if you remember any of them! 1. Fix Me Up DocThe weirdest thing on this box isn't even the open human with the child manically
