20 Times Toy Designers Failed to Do Their Job Right, and the Results Are Hilarious

We’ve seen our share of crappy design, but store shelves are so abundant with them, there’s always more to poke fun at. For example, toys. They’re usually designed and made by adults, so you’d expect a considerable amount of consideration before manufacturing them, right? Well, not so much. Bored Panda has collected some of the most questionable toys to prove that some designers have no clue what they’re doing.

From a doll head, used as an actual ponytail to a psychotic Elmo, it seems ridiculous someone actually greenlighted these ideas. We’re pretty sure, however, that the employees who did had a ‘long talk’ with their bosses after the fact. Scroll down to check out what we mean and vote for the ones that made you cringe the most.

We’ve witnessed so many times when people have not bothered to do their job right and simply failed at it. Wrong decorations, wrong cover box for a puzzle, and so many other failures that make you wonder how do these people get hired in the first place.

However, there is a whole other area where people stretched their genius minds to create toys for children, which didn’t turn out as expected. Below is a whole collection of toys that have failed with their designs.

Awwww, what a beautiful baby Kangaroo…. Ahhh! 😱 Put it back, put it back, please!
