Ahh, the innocence of youth. There’s nothing in the world more fun that shopping for toys for your kids; they’re colorful and cheery. Kids these days have so many great things to play with. Puzzles, games, stuffed animals, science kits, action figures, dolls, electronics and even mini vehicles made of plastic that they can drive.
The list goes on and on. For many of us, getting lost inside a toy store was our ultimate dream as kids; we hoped we could live there and play with all of the fake guns and make houses out of building bricks to live in forever. There’s something wonderfully nostalgic about walking around the toy store with our children, and letting them pick out a toy from amongst the millions.
From figures with buttons or knobs on their crotches to weird, phallic-looking sex toys, some really strange things have gotten approved by toy companies. Someone came up with this idea and it made it through hours of design, manufacturing and approvals to find its way into the stores where we let our children shop uninhibited.
Toys that you look at and think “How on earth did this even make it past the idea board?” These crazy toys over the years have done everything from causing a stir to outright outrage in the toy aisles.

2 Disney’s Rad Repeatin’ Tarzan
The animated Disney movie Tarzan came out in 1999 and with it came a plethora of toys and other merchandise. Disney loves their dolls, and of course they had to have figures of the new characters. There were several Barbie-style dolls, but that wasn’t enough. Disney wanted the toy to move like Tarzan and make Tarzan like cries. So they put in a chip and got the sounds right. Too bad they didn’t get anything else right. Instead of looking like he was swinging or dancing or fighting, good old Tarzan just looks like he’s masturbating or trying to hurt himself. His hand rises up and smashes into his junk over and over again as he screams monkey noises from his soundbox. That totally should not be a toy for kids. Or anyone else.
1 Peekaboo Pole Dancing Kit
The name should give away exact what was wrong with this toy. A pole dancing kit. For kids. Seriously, how did this make it out of the Tesco board room? The kit came with a “sexy dance garter” and said on the outside of the box “Unleash the sex kitten inside…soon you’ll be flaunting it to the world and earning a fortune in Peekaboo Dance Dollars.” The toy was yanked from the shelves after an influx of angry parents demanded it be removed from toy stores for sexualizing little girls. This isn’t the first time that Tesco has been in trouble with the UK, and given this toy, it won’t be the last!
