The Island of Bootleg Toys


Where's the ostrich riding cowboy? One of the weekly bits of fun over at WrestleCrap is a segment called Someone Bought This in which they highlight crazy wrestling products. A recent SBT selection was a set of bootleg wrestling action figures profiled on another Net gem, Bootleg Toys: The Undiscovered Playthings.

I am not a collector or observer of toys, so I would never have guessed that cheap Chinese toys made of leftover toxic chemicals would be amusing. But I remember being baffled by these kinds of terrible toys as a kid and Joe does a great job of skewering everything from the designs to packaging to misspellings. Highly recommended.
