29 Offensive Games and Toys

Violent, Naughty or Otherwise Not Nice Playthings

— February 21, 2009 — Naughty
Most of us have the idea that childhood should be unfettered by unpleasantness. Whether we buy toys and games for our children, or for ourselves, we don’t generally want any rude surprises.

There are those, however, who make it their business to challenge those assumptions by making and marketing unpleasant playthings.

Looking around the Trend Hunter site, I found several trends to illustrate just what I mean. Take a look and see if you agree.
