Most Annoying Toys Ever

most annoying kids toys ever

Toddlers love it, moms detest it.

My mom and dad keep a Chicken Dance Elmo toy at their house (there's the hideous creature at right) for when my kids go over. This is one of those cases when you actually WANT the batteries to go dead, but they never do. In fact, they last forever.

Elmo sings and dances to the song when you push the button on his feet, which my kids do repeatedly every time we visit, most recently for Mother's Day.

And every other visit or so, my 4-year-old asks if we can bring the toy home, to which I reply, "NOOOOOOOOO WAAAYYYYYYY!"

That's got to be one of the most annoying toys on the face of the earth. CafeMoms in The CafeMom Newcomer's Club had plenty of others they'd love to "make dissappear," as well. But Talking Elmos come up quite frequently on this list ... hmmm.

The World's Most Annoying Toys:

-- A fully enclosed large egg that keeps saying "Hello, is anyone out there? Hellllloooooo" over and over again. It goes off everytime it's shaken.

-- Legos. Hate them with a passion. If I'm made to clean them up, they go in the trash."

-- Bubbles! Messy, YUCK!

-- A wooden puzzle board that makes the sound of the object when pieces are placed in the right spot. It's possessed. It goes off in the middle of the night and during the day when nobody is even around it.

-- A 2,000 piece bead set for girls. You find them in random places for years!!!

-- My son's fire engine with realistic sirens. It gives me a headache, make it stop!

-- A talking bunny my son got for Easter. Some of the things it says are just ... weird: "I'm hiding now, ready or now, here they come!" They who? Creepy.

-- The Hannah Montana guitar.

-- Anything Hannah Montana.

-- My daughter's bug catcher. She's outside catching bugs all day -- ants, flies, worms! The top doesn't stay on well, so the ants fall out when she drops it on the floor.

-- All the balls in my house. They are outside toys not to be used as human target practice, and not to be thrown and bounced off the ceiling! 

-- A rapping Christmas frog that raps "Deck the halls with bawls of hally" in the most annoying voice ever. I keep him in the garage.

-- My two nightmares were the popcorn popper. Disappeared rather quickly. And ...

-- The talking Barney doll. I waited till my son was napping, slipped it from under his arm, and did some surgery on him. Barney uses sign language now.

the most annoying toy my daughter has besides the wooden puzzle that makes animal noises, is my daughter's VTech portable/handheld video game thing.  Its only annoying because the volume dial goes up SO LOUD!  I can hear EVERYTHING on it from another room.  And she only plays with it when the volume is up LOUD.  And she never turns it off, she just puts it down and walks away, leaving the noises GOING and GOING.  I hate it.

This.  This stupid toy should be dragged into dark alleys, shot, and left for dead.

For the lady with the wooden puzzle, they're LIGHT activated.  The way it knows when the piece is in is when the light sensor is blocked.  Put it in a drawer when it's not in use.  It'll stop.  Trust me, I swore ours was possessed for a bit too. ;)

Anything that when the kid finally gets tired of it, doesn't just shut up but says "are you really done playing?" which reminds the kid to play with it again instead of say, being creative, running around, going outside, falling asleep, etc. Vtech and Leapfrog are the worst at this. Learning toys are fine but don't they know that electronic toys are a poor 2nd choice to any of the activities I mention above and they shouldn't encourage kids to return.

They also get posessed more than most toys. The leapfrog table (which the kids love) is the worst for going off in the middle of the night

The most annoying thing my kids ever had was a ride on fire truck that played music.  It had only one volume setting (LOUD!) and NO OFF SWITCH!!!  Who makes a toy with no off switch?  My MIL bought it for my son for Christmas when I was on bedrest with pregnancy complications and it was pretty much all I heard as I lay flat on the couch for the next several months.  I still know the freaking song by heart: "Hurry hurry to the fire, hurry hurry spray the water, hurry hurry back to the station, ding ding ding ding ding!"  All loud enough to make tv watching,reading, or thought completely impossible!  When ds got bored with it that thing was on the curb so fast.... no way was I letting my next two kids get their hands on it!

LoL I am laughing at everyone, but its ALL so true. The should be a rule, if it runs on batteries it MUST have an of switch. My mom (the one that told me she would never buy that toy that would make noises) got my youngest a toy dog that sang or something every time u pushed it paw, its ears would move too, and of your there's my oldest Leap frog, lucky it has vol control..

.LEGOS!!! Don't get me wrong there great IF they stay in there box!!! but Nooooooo they end up at night on your way to the bathroom...nothing like an implanted Lego in your know all toys in general can be annoying at some point.

My son has both the Chicken Dance Elmo and the Pizza Elmo and I must say that I love those toys!!!!   Yes, granted he plays those things back to back and they can be annoying at times but they keep him so amused.  Whenever I need to get something done around the house I just tell him, " Go find Elmo"  and that is that!!!!

my daughter has the fisher price aquarium thingy with 3 fish that you drop into the 'tank'. when you do that [or move it at all] it plays these gay songs. it's annoying as hell.
