Advent Calendar, Day 10


Knockoff versions of popular toys.

Cheap knockoffs of popular toys would take advantage of your desperation and leave your children with a sense of familiarity tinged with confusion.
Of course, they also provide cheap alternatives to toys which children are not brand-savvy (or even old enough to distinguish anything but vague shape and colour) to recognize as impostors.


These include, but are not limited to:
- Bootleg LEGO (Or BootLEGO, as it is commonly referred to) identifiable by it warped proportions and less amiable appearance.
- Toys which look close enough to but juuuuuuuust don't quite resemble popular icons. 'Night Hero Man' toys, for example.
- And, very popular this year, anything which looks like an Elsa from 'Frozen' doll. Pictured, Elsa with thick bushy mono-brow, ronnie, goat eyes, hook hand, and adorable Medusa hair.
