Hail Mary!

Just when you thought children's toys couldn't get any weirder, a mysterious photo surfaces and pushes the boundaries of taste to whole new levels. This week, we give you the Pole Dancer Doll, a toy that is er, pretty self-explanatory. The baby-faced doll comes outfitted in a sparkly green dress with pole and light-up flashing stage to match. Unfortunately, it seems you'll have to provide the riff-tastic soundtrack yourself (Warrant's 'Sweet Cherry Pie,' anyone?) ... Read More
