Wouldn't it be awesome to own a piece of Hollywood history, like the actual Darth Vader helmet or that James Bond car that turns invisible (that was real, right?). Luckily for you, there are lots of auction sites letting fans and collectors bid on real props taken right from the sets of blockbusters. Just note that, out of their original context, many of them are pure nightmare fuel.
8 Giant Fiberglass David Hasselhoff

Some people stand in the darkness, but don't be afraid -- you can roll into the light with your very own lifelike, "oversized" David Hasselhoff. And by "oversized" we mean that thing is 14 feet long -- so his face is about 2 feet tall. Are you picturing it? Are you picturing yourself waking up next to it?
Sold as part of a large Hasselhoff auction that includes a classy Disney-themed denim jacket and an absolutely bitchin' Knight Rider golf cart, this Hoff replica was used on screen for the SpongeBob SquarePants movie. As if that jubilant, hollow void of a grin wasn't enough, the prop comes equipped with a roller that makes it easy for David Hasselhoff to follow you everywhere you go, including every dream for the rest of your life.
If you like a little bit more disturbing implication of free will, you could always go for this alternative model:

Rise, Lord Hasselhoff.
Isn't that precious? He's trying so hard to escape his mechanical shackles that his pectoral muscle is erupting! Set him in the corner of your bedroom and pretend he's cheering you on while you're having sex!
7 The Robot Dogs from Hell
Most of the furry animals in today's kiddie movies are made with CGI, but sometimes they still bust out the statues and animatronics for close-ups. At first, they look snuggly enough to sleep with, but after a bit of wear and tear, creatures like this bloodhound from the movie Cats & Dogs become pure childhood nightmare fuel:
"Daddy, is that what Bubba looks like now?"
"Oh, no, sweetie. Bubba is way more decomposed than that."
Granted, you might have to explain to your kid who cut off the front (back?) half of CatDog. Then there's the matter of that face, which looks like a still frame from one of those decomposition time-lapse videos. Maggots are bound to burst out of that thing at any moment. Otherwise, it's a pretty solid fifth birthday present.
If your child is more of a fan of the live action 101 Dalmatians movies, though, you could always go for the Puppy of the Damned:
That's one of the titular 101 Dalmatians, though you'd be forgiven for mistaking it for Cerberus, the three-headed dog who guards the underworld. The scuffed nose and faded spots are bad enough, but the missing ears and broken legs push it into the suburbs of Creeptown. If your son or daughter is pestering you for a dog, putting this in their room should traumatize them into submission.
