Something went terribly wrong in the Toytown...
Nightmarish, deeply disturbing and bizarre toys can still be found in this world, lurking just around the corner to haunt unsuspecting children... Some people even pay money to get these products.
Continuing the series of Dolls and Toys that Creep Us Out, here is another bunch of toys to steer clear of - or on the contrary, deliberately seek them out for a nifty collection.

But first, let us celebrate creativity, and start with some neat stuff:
Wonderfully Twisted Toys
These are toys that we actually like, and will gladly add to our roster of curiosities... we may even play with them to unwind after work.
Crazy steampunk rabbit - "Woppit & Hare Clockwork Enigma" - made by Doctor A. using the customized "labbit" evil toy from Kid Robot.
Artists from Kidrobot display endless creativity in coming up with nameless monsters and kinky apparitions. Check out their catalog - here are some examples:
However, Doctor A. makes the most intense steampunkish toys - check out his site and his line up of "Mechtorians" toys!

"An Alien Clone Baby" is presented by Martin Dolan. For the grown-ups he's got a very cool deskphone, made from a spade!.. mostly (see image below right):

Like they say, this horse "activates the threshold between wonder and horror". It can be forever (undead) yours, for the price of $50,000.
Speaking about dogs, here is a jigsaw puzzle:
Toilet humor: pooping reindeer and pigs (a jelly bean dispenser). What fun! -
(more info and purchase here, via)
These balloons clearly suffer from bad design:
Hipsters' most favorite teddy bear (with all these accessories in the set, what do they need the bear for?):

(get "Mr. Bean with his bear" toy figure here)
"Trailer Trash Doll" (it even comes with the pregnant version), available from Redneck Warehouse:
Stuffed Mummy from "Happy Tree Friends"-inspired art site Cuddly Rigor Mortis:
We have to mention the "strange Museum of Broken Toys", collected by Miquel Angel Joan from Majorca, Spain - click here (mute audio). Here are some examples:
For the really extensive collection of weird and wonderful toys, head over to Toys Are Evil site. Here is a "sloshed sloth" toy figure, for example:

Plush Cthulhu and microbes. Get them here:
Well... in our opinion, any ugly and scary toy is better than games some families play (or played in the 1950s):
