These 18 Ill-Conceived Toys Are An Embarrassment To Humanity

You're a young tyke and it is your birthday. You sit down with a pile of presents after eating your favorite food with your friends and got a sugar rush from the cake you all shared. You're five years old. You've grown more mature. You've grown wiser. You're super excited to see what kind of new toys you'll get to play with now that you're getting ready for kindergarten at the big kid school next year. 

You open the gift from Gram-Gram. You hope it's that robot you wanted or maybe Optimus Prime. It's robotish enough. Once the whirlwind of wrapping paper settles you see it. It is a robot. A JESUS ROBOT. You cry. Then are forced by your mom to thank Gram-Gram, even though mom is also creeped out by it.
