Mighty Max – “Cybot (or UNDED-209)”

Wow! It’s the first robot I’ve posted on the blog (and I’m sure it won’t be the last)! Let’s check ‘im out. (Click to enlarge) I found this toy at a flea market a couple of years ago. It may not seem like much. I think its biggest appeal for me initially was its creepy, […]

You've come a long way, Baby New Year!

You’ve come a long way, Baby New Year!

Well, it’s that time again. Time to start a new year! What better way to get fired up for 2008 than to light one up with Baby New Year! (Click to enlarge) Alright, maybe this isn’t exactly the cuddly, newborn Baby New Year you’ve always imagined (something disturbs me about the back of his head). […]

Rub-a-Dub-Dub 2 Clauses in a Tub

Rub-a-Dub-Dub 2 Clauses in a Tub

I recently realized I don’t have any weird Christmas-themed toys lying around, so yesterday, I decided to go on a search for something odd to feature on the blog. I really had no idea where to start. Luckily, a friend of mine recommended a place filled with all kinds of random crap – Wilsons 5¢ […]

Gross Out Gang – Skilcraft 1987

Gross Out Gang (Click to enlarge) Warning: This next little bit is just my jabbering on about the blog and my discovery of the Gross Out Gang. This entry is particularly special to me, because a couple of months ago, when I started this site, I had a simple vision of sharing some weird toys […]

Madballs 2007

Madballs 2007

So all those who lost the Madballs they had as kids (and even those who kept their Madballs just to realize they’d disintegrate over time), fret no further. They’re back! You remember Madballs. They actually had success in the mid 80s, combining the gross-out character style of Garbage Pail Kids and the playability of a […]

Make-My-Own-Monster Custom Design Kit

Thanks to my buddy, Chris, I got word that FAO Schwarz wants you to make your own weirdo toys… straight from your children’s heads using the Make-My-Own-Monster Custom Design Kit. They’ve partnered with the North American Bear Co. to bring you some of the most primitively cool custom dolls you’ve ever seen. Here are a […]

Axe's Pitman Keychain

Axe’s Pitman Keychain

In 2004 Axe attempted to appeal to guys with an ad campaign featuring a cartoony armpit character named Pitman. The ads were based on the idea that Pitman is a hit with the ladies because he is so dry. There’s nothing sexier than dry armpits, right ladies? You mean there is? A walking, headless armpit […]

Gross Out Gang - Class of '87

Gross Out Gang – Class of ’87

While searching for the newly discovered Gross Out Gang, I came across a seller on eBay offering up this 1987 Skilcraft toy ad. (Click to enlarge) Needless to say, I bought it merely for the photo of the whole gang. (Click to enlarge) Now that we know what the whole gang looks like, help me […]
