It's so strange to think that unsettling things like clowns, china dolls, marionettes, costume characters and various other unsettling things were originally intended as "kids stuff". Even fairytales are known to be fairly grim (pun intended). And while some may have gone down well with the younger generation many adults shiver at the sight of them.

So tell us. What kiddy toy, character, song, site, story or place gives you nightmares?

Tik Tok, pure and simple. It’s destroying social interaction, attention, intelligence and concentration of our children.

Those goos and various other liquids that are advertised as kids toys that somehow keep popping up from time to time as a trend. I mean, they're marketed to a kid, and I get why it's interesting for them, but some of the stuff that kids are into are pretty gnarly.

Bingo, I hate slime, kinetic sand, and playdough. I would say that is children "goo". After 3rd grade I ended my love of playdough cause of all the hair it collected. I realized that slime picked up far more hair than playdougb, and kinetic sand was kind of like playdough. . . :|

Clowns, dolls, furbies, talking toys, etc. They freak me out.

Oh, and a lot of nursery rhymes have questionable lyrics

Almost all of them have morbid backgrounds. Ring around the rosy is about the Bubonic Plague, for instance. And I've always wondered what's so relaxing about a baby in a cradle falling out of a tree like WHAT
