Social media users share scary toys that should never have been made

The stuff of nightmares! These terrifying toys should never have been made – from a Zombie-like version of Disney’s Woody to a bizarre duck doll

  • People from around the world have shared the scariest kid’s toys known to man 
  • One snap shows a child’s toothbrush shaped like a pistol, with a working trigger
  • In another, a baby doll’s baby face is forever stuck in a horrific crying expression

Social media users from around the world have shared snaps of the most terrifying toys, dolls and gadgets, with the best examples collated in a gallery by Bored Panda. 

Some of the worst offenders appear to be knock off versions of popular merchandise, such as a stuffed fish that was probably mean to be Disney’s Nemo, but the addition of a bared mouth full of plastic false teeth did not create a cute and cuddly effect.  

Elsehwere, some giraffes hanging by their necks in a toy store, created an accidentally sinister scene.
