Top 10 Controversial Kid's Toys

I know we ran a piece recently about dangerous toys that got recalled, but what about the controversial toys? The toys that may not pose any physical threat to the child, but can wrp the kid's mind and send a really odd message? Thankfully, WatchMojo put together a rather eye-opening list of toys that got recalled for various colorful reasons. I will say this, I still have my Entertech AK water gun. The thing looks photo realistic and hangs on the back wall of my office to intimidate new comers. Unfortuately, could never find that last Barbie doll they talk about. Not like I looked or anything...

I will go on record to say that Super Soaker they talk about almost wins for being the most disturbing and unsettling. That commercal for it is hilarious, though, for all the wrong reasons. I would say the photo of the toy see you above wins, and by wins, I means loses. That is just not okay.

I believe the Black Canary Barbie was NEVER intended for children. Here is a link to a bit of info (this site sells some pretty fantastical ones, and it can be lots of fun to look through).

The toy that WAS intended for children, that had even been redesigned based on what young girls wanted, but had unintended consequences was Earring Magic Ken. According to Wiki: "Observers quickly noted the resemblance of Earring Magic Ken to a stereotypical gay man, from the purple clothes to the earring to the necklace, which was described as a 'chrome cock ring.'" This should definitely be on the list!
