45 Disturbing Adult-Only Toys

Freakish Nightmare-Inducing Dolls and Plushies

— October 12, 2009 — Life-Stages
From the weird and wacky to the creepy and disgusting, some toys just weren’t meant for tots. We aren’t talking about those ‘special’ toys that grown-ups might keep in their pleasure chests. These toys are downright frightening. Nightlights and protective blankies are no match for these macabre, nightmare-inducing dolls and plushies.

Implications - The economy inspired a wave of credit-crunched consumers to seek the innocence of childhood. Savvy artists responded by creating toys that appeal to adults' sense of nostalgia but with a subversive form factor, infusing macabre themes to titillate consumers' with dark humor. Companies can take advantage of this phenomenon by creating demented versions of childhood toys for adults.
