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.
Combined with the general look of the toy, this is all kinds of wrong.
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..."
Toys were simpler when we were young. You didn't need to have something that had built-in Wi-Fi, or a built-in camera, or a giant hard drive, you just needed it to be cute.

Who else had a Monchhichi when they were young? Probably every single one of you, right? But where did they come from?The BeginningFlickrMonchhichi first came out
We all know and love Barbie, she has been one of the most iconic toys for decades. And Barbie of course has her group of friends and family that help bring her world to life. Of course there is one special man who has always been a big figure in her life. Ken Carson came onto the scene in 1961, and has been Barbie's boyfriend ever since. Well, I guess they broke up for a little bit in 2004, but let's pretend that never happened. There have been a lot of version of Ken since he arrived in stores nearly
Let's be honest for a second, it's the internet, there is no one here to judge you. When you were growing up, what did you care the most about? Was it your family? No, that's just what you said near Christmas so you would get good gifts. Was it your friends? No, they weren't always there for you when you needed them. The thing we all cared about more than anything was our elaborate and extensive toy collections. Sure, does that make us all a little bit materialistic and selfish? Probably. But those are the facts and there's not much
Listen, board games were a very important part of our childhood. Dream Phone was played almost every weekend, Fireball Island was played on those days when you had the energy to set it up, but there was one game that trumped them all. 13 Dead End Drive was what happened if you mixed Clue with Mouse Trap, and also added in some good old-fashioned sabotage. The object of the game was simple: Survive. The backstory of the game (not that anyone really cared about that) was that a wealthy woman died and now there is a big fight over who
