The Home for Odd, Ugly and Neglected Toys

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty

So, this is the 3rd and last toy I found at the White Horse Road Flea Market last Sunday. One of the vendors had a stack of these things selling them for a buck each. They were actually produced in 1986. It turned out to be an 80s toy weekend. It’s Humpty Dumpty! He’s not […]

Weird Ball -

Weird Ball – “None Chuck” by Mel Appel

So, on Sunday’s trip to the flea market, I also found another quirky old 80′s toy. He wasn’t quite as gross as the Gross Out Gang Pie-Guy I found, but this incredibly stereotypical depiction of the classic ninja made me chuckle. It reminded me of an era of where toy companies obviously weren’t as afraid […]

Gross Out Gang

Gross Out Gang

Well, with the help of a friend (thanks Brian) and a dab of common sense, I now know that the “Pie-Eater” and “Big-Lips” Skilcraft figures are part of a series called the “Gross Out Gang.” That explains the “GOG” on Big-Lip’s pants pocket. I don’t have any info other than these pics I found online. […]

So, yesterday, I went to the White Horse Road Flea Market along with my friends Chris and Duane (some comic and toy buddies of mine). I’d been to this place a few times over the years and I never really found anything that moved me, but lo and behold, I found something (It wasn’t just […]

Naked Ninja Stuntman

Naked Ninja Stuntman

His name says it all. Well, maybe it’s not his real name, but it’s all I can come up with to describe what the heck this guy is. Just look at him: a ninja with a helmet, a star belt and boots… completely flesh-toned (caucasian flesh that is). The poor guy’s been abandoned, but I […]

Look at the toy of the monster where these are cool!

Look at the toy of the monster where these are cool!

Japanese toys. They’re commonly small, blind-packed (which makes them “collectible”) and bizarre in the eyes of most Americans. I recently purchased these four figures in a blind pack from a vendor in Japan. It’s a small set made by TOMY. I’m not sure how old it is, and i’m not even sure what these characters […]

Yeehaw! Ride 'em cowboy!

Yeehaw! Ride ‘em cowboy!

Several years ago I was strolling through a Revco Drug store (which has since become CVS), and I dropped by the toy section (as we all do in any store that has one). That’s where I found this little, energetic guy. He seems pretty uninteresting at first glance… (Click to enlarge) Maybe even at second […]

You got some big-ass lips!

You got some big-ass lips!

So… I’ve been debating what my first toy submission should be, and that got me thinking. What are the elements that make a good, weird toy. Huge Lips? Check. Drool? Check. Red Cape? Check. Power Ring? Check. Yellow Eyeliner? Check. Seems like a good combo. I’ll let you be the judge. (Click to enlarge) (Click […]
