Friday FAIL

Games and toys that were sold several decades ago somehow don't seem right today.

Dad and his son are having an exciting naval battle while Mom and daughter slave away in the kitchen while cheering them on to victory.

Every child's favourite game? I suppose so, but it's only fun until someone gets hurt.

This one is a newer toy, and at least it is correctly labelled for adult use. Exactly what are those animals up to?

Kinky fun for pre-adolescents? This is all kinds of wrong.

Visiting Disneyland will never be the same again. Which one is Minnie?

The Micky Mouse one sorta disturbs me.

All fails. How could they do that to Mickey and Minnie. That's soooo bad on soooo many levels.

ronnie said...

Oh definitely all fails especially kinky clothes for kids and Minnie & Micky.

Minnie has on purple eye shadow!

Made me laugh out loud TY

Hermione said...

Joey - Too right!

Mick and Lynda - Me too. Which is which?

Sunnygirl - I agree, not appropriate at all.

Ronnie - I couldn't believe the kinky toys.

Mindset - But Mickey has the red stockings and heels. What's up with that?

Hermione said...

Bluame - Welcome, and thanks for commenting.

I received the Battleship Game for Christmas one year as a kid. I loved it. :D I played my Dad all the time. I wonder whatever happened to that old thing?
I think mine had a slightly different cover, I don't remember the Mum and daughter doing dishes, and I would have noticed that...
Thanks for the smile and the warm memory Hermione.

I dunno Hermione...some of these look like win to me. :D

Erica said...

Oh my GAWD, no. Pass the brain bleach for the Mickey/Minnie photo! My childhood just went up in flames!

Dr. Ken said...

Minnie is the one with the eye make-up and the pink ribbon on her head.....:-)

I have to agree, though, that the Mickey and Minnie picture is just all kinds of wrong.

Why, I ask you....WHY?


Because we LIKE you!

Lill Ian - I played the game on graph paper; nothing sexist about that:)

Ana - It all depends on how you look at it.

Erica - I know. That was all kinds of wrong.

Dr.Ken - Thanks for that. You brought back fond memories of the Mickey Mouse Club.
