Ah, the '90s. The decade of our favorite heartthrob Jonathan Taylor Thomas, boy bands, Space Jam, Tamagotchis and many more things that all of us Millennials so desperately miss. If you long for the superior decade of the '90s then you'll really appreciate scrolling through these nostalgic AF pics. We guarantee they'll make you reminisce hardcore.
In the list below you'll find toy design fails that shouldn't have ever happened. And whether it was poorly thought-through, sloppily done, or completely unintentional, they all are pretty funny. At least these designers never fail to amuse us, right?
Everyone loves nostalgia, and this trending dank meme relies heavily on those wistful feelings to drive their joke across. Nerf guns may exist now, but they're not nearly as present as they seemed to be when your old AF editors were in their Nerf-shooting days. Besides the hours of tomfoolery, there's one thing about Nerf guns has always stood out to us: the fact that the darts always seem to disappear. It doesn't matter if you're shootin' them in a big field or a small room with no furniture. The damn things seem to vanish in thin air. We're not sure if it's a conspiracy orchestrated by the Nerf bigwigs or if there's some sort of parallel universe where the Nerf darts are located. We do know, however, that we appreciate r/dankmemes for shedding light on these mysteries. Now we just need a History channel investigation.
If you experienced childhood somewhere around the turn of the century, then quite a few of of these pictures might hit you right in the memory nads. Remember back when you had to drive to a store to rent videos? Wild. If you want more '90s nostalgia, then check these out.
Remember Teddy Ruxpin, the animated talking teddy bear from the 80's? Well, he's back, and even more creepy, with fully animated digital eyes, hitting store shelves in 2017.
Though currently a prototype, they seem keen to keep the creepy eyes an integral part of the bear in the future, as they brought one out for the public at a trade show recently:
I feel like we've seen how this ends already...
Summer's almost over, but the fun can keep going all Autumn long with this Giant Cockroach Raft!
Just think--Dad puts the cover on the pool, you sneak out and hide this baby underneath it, next summer when he goes to open the pool BAM! HEART ATTACK!!
There's also this beauty that I'd love to ride:
I'm gonna ride this heat wave as long as possible, goddammit...
If you want your kid to hate you forever, this is what you should get them for Christmas.
Bunchems, this year's trendy toy for kids, is causing some major problems for children with long hair. Mainly, the tiny pieces used to create 3D artwork are ripping out all of their luscious locks.
The toy is supposed to make things like this...
But parents on Amazon are saying the pieces of the toy are a nightmare if caught in hair.
The Bunchems website does have a video tutorial on how to get them out of hair, and there are warnings on the box.
But...is it really worth it?
We'll stick with Gak.
Here's something to make you smile.
A British man has created a drivable, adult-size version of the classic Little Tikes car. And it could be all yours if you get the winning bid on Ebay.
The colorful car was created by Mechanic John Bitmead and his brother Geoff back in 2013, and has been used to raise money for children's charities across the country.
The car is listed at £21,500, or $33,264, and has about 5,000 miles on it.
Fox News host Harris Faulkner has a rodent problem. And she wants $5 million because of it.
In a lawsuit filed Monday in U.S. District Court in New Jersey, Faulkner is suing Hasbro because she says a "Little Toy Shop" hamster shares her name and likeness. The toy is also deemed a choking hazard, the suit says, which causes Faulkner distress for being associated with "harming small children."
She calls out "complexion, the shape of its eyes, and the design of its eye makeup" as evidence that the company stole her identity.
To be fair, the hamster does share the same name. But as far as looks go, you can decided that for yourself.
If you want to own your own little piece of Fox News history, Ebay has an original Harris Faulkner for $40.52.
