We all have our own favorite childhood toys that hold a special place in our heart.
We also all have our own childhood fears... scary incidents that are burned into our brains
Now sometimes childhood fears and childhood toys overlap.
Here are the top 5 scary toys caught on camera.
Oh, and just to make things a little more disturbing, and make this video a little different
from the typical "scary toys" video...
These are ALL toys that people are still buying for their kids today, right now.
Links to all of the scary toys are in the description if you want to traumatize yourself.
Furby, Your Best Friend, Your Worst Enemy
Furbies made national news in 1998 as the first robot ever developed and mass produced
as a consumer device, in this case, a toy for children.
The Furby spoke its own unique language called Furbish when first purchased, but it was programmed
to gradually learn English over time so that it could speak to its child playmate.
The launch of this robot toy did NOT go as planned.
The first release of the Furbies were defective.
The robot dolls would randomly FREAK OUT, screeching gibberish and making weird facial
expressions while rapidly blinking its eyes as if possessed.
Turns out, the computer chip in the Furby robot was VERY unstable and often malfunctioned,
sending the Furby into a stream of random frightening behavior and speech, that often
traumatized any child in its prescience.
These random malfunctioning Furbies are now VERY sought after by toy collectors, but to
some, they are nightmarish childhood memories.
But, forgetting all of that horrible nightmare fuel, Furbies are amazingly still sold today.
The newest version is the "Furby Connect".
But there are still concerns with the new Furbies.
In 2016 a UK consumer group warned that a lack of robust security measures made it possible
to hack into the toy and use it as a surveillance device.
Now tell me that doesn't sound like a Black Mirror episode...
Anyway, did you have a weird Furby scary toy experience yourself?
Let me know down in the comments.
Creepy Doll Earlier this year, a scary video surfaced
of a creepy doll that was supposedly found in a graveyard in Mexico, or in some stories,
the location was said to be somewhere in Brazil.
But creepiest of all, the doll's eyes seemed to follow the viewer as they moved.
Well, the video was a hoax, but the doll is VERY real.
It was a creation by Oklahoma artist Julia Lane.
Julia's specialty is making very bizarre, creepy dolls, some of which have eyes that
follow you wherever you move.
These scary toys aren't really made for kids, but are basically amazing pieces of horror
A link to the doll page is in the description.

Ouija Board If you're a regular viewer of this channel,
you know that I did a whole countdown on scary videos with Ouija boards.
In the comments of that video, a few people mentioned that it was weird that a Ouija board
was sold as a simple children's toy by the Hasbro toy company, even though some people
characterize it as a device to contact ghosts or possibly evil spirits.
In this spooky clip, a group of teens are using a Ouija board in a graveyard when they
began hearing strange noises.
They believe that there might be an angry homeless man lurking in the graveyard, so
they make a fast retreat.
They then return to grab the ouija board.
The driver claims to see this mysterious homeless man yet again, but when the cars lights shine
on the area, no one is there.
Well, here's the thing, Hasbro STILL sells Ouija boards as a children's toy.
They never stopped.
And the game is listed as "For 2-4 players, ages 8 years and up".
So if you believe the Ouija board is a conduit to evil entities on the other side, well take
note that it is still being marketed as a fun toy to children ages 8 and above.
So do you think a Ouija board is simply a scary toy suitable for 8 year olds?
Or is it a portal to the supernatural world?
Let me know what you think, or if you want to try it out yourself and see if you can
summon some scary shadow being to your home, a link to the "TOY" is in the video description.
The Evil Wand A woman bought her daughter a simple toy at
a local dollar store.
The so called "Evil Stick Wand", was rated for children age 3 years and above.
It looked like a typical child's toy, and the packaging promised "WONDERFUL MUSIC, MAGIC,
Well the woman gave her child the toy, and that's not quite what she got.
The young girl peels back a plastic sticker on the wand to reveal a demonic looking little
girl who seems to be cutting herself while grinning evilly at the camera.
And remember how the toy's packaging promised quote "Wonderful music".
Well here's what it played...
The little girl was frightened by the image.
The girl's mother was appalled.
But the shop owner's reaction was the most surprising of all:
story seemed SO outlandish, that many people on the internet first thought it was just
a hoax, but a YouTuber named Matt Clark went to the same Dollar Store and purchased this
"Evil Stick Wand" and confirmed the story.
It's a 100% real children's toy being sold in bargain stores right now.
Teething Doll A very strange and scary story emerged from
the internet late last year.
It was said that "a new Pinterest craze has emerged on the internet.
Sewing your child's lost baby-teeth into a doll".
Supposedly, mothers on Pinterest were taking up a new craft project- making dolls and sewing
their children's lost baby-teeth into the mouth of the doll.
Like most things on the internet, it was all a wild exaggeration . Turns out, it was actually
an artist known only as Mrs. McGettrick who was making the strange "dolls with teeth".
The dolls are called Fugglers, and despite the crazy stories circulated on the internet,
the dolls did NOT have REAL lost baby teeth.
The strange stuffed figures simply have bizarre fake teeth sewn into their mouths.
And if THAT's not enough weird enough for you, then please keep in mind that in REAL
LIFE, some mothers actually make necklaces from their children's baby teeth.
And that's 100% TRUE.
