Parents Talk: What Are the Creepiest Kids Toys?
Is there a toy you avoid buying because it’s too creepy or scary?
I swear it was possessed.
That furry little menace always sat idly and quiet on my daughter’s shelf when she was younger. However, the minute I walked into her room or even just walked by, Furby would start talking and doing his creepy thing.
It wouldn’t have been a toy I would have ever brought into our home willingly – just the gremlin-like look of it was disturbing enough. It was one of those gifts from a relative that you try to tolerate – for a while.
Eventually Furby happened to find its way into the bottom of the box of toys during a move. To this day, I’m still fairly certain I removed Furby’s batteries before it went into the box. The minute we loaded the boxes in the van, we could still hear Furby trying to interact with us from inside the box. It was just plain weird.
After that, I decided Furby would never make appearance around the house again. It sits in the basement with a bunch of other old toys, perhaps just waiting for the day when it sees daylight again.
The sad thing is, creepy toys seem to span every generation. It’s those toys that you look at and say to yourself, “What were they thinking?”
This week, we ask you – What creepy or scary toys managed to make its way into your home? Which ones do you avoid buying? Tell us in comments!
Speaking of creepy toys, don’t even get me started on clowns…..
