Call me evil...

...but every year I get a kick out of the "10 Worst Toys" list from World Against Toys Causing Harm. These are a few of my favourites:

  • Classic Horror Psycho Saw
  • Sesame Street's Check-up Ernie
  • Jungle Gym Jump-O-Lene
  • Mock Military Bazooka
  • Camouflage Water Bomb Fun Kit
  • M-60 Automatic Assault Lazer
  • Star Wars - Revenge of the Sith Energy Beam Blaster
  • The Lord Of The Rings - Return Of The King Uruk-Hai Crossbow Set Including Electronic Light 'n' Sound Sting Sword
  • Air Kicks Kickaroos Anti-Gravity Boots

How do such things get past the drawing board? They're as bad as the phony products in that old Saturday Night Live Consumer Probe skit with Candice Bergen and Dan Aykroyd.

Yes. My favourite toy on that sketch was Bag-O-Glass
