A Gallery of Chinese Knock-Off Toys

Published by at 3:00 pm under Images,Oddly Enough

Oh China, you so silly, stealing our intellectual property.

But you know? I don’t really feel bad. If you have to resort to these kind of bootleg toys, you probably couldn’t afford the real versions anyway. And plus, some of these are just downright hilarious, and the world is better off that they exist.

Check out the full gallery below (via Izismile) and try to understand why they call Pikachu “Monica”  over there.

    LOL! I have a buddy who used to live in Thailand, and he’d send me pix every now and then of knock-offs he’d see on the streets over yonder.

    These images just make me sad. You know, as a child, my parents had NO IDEA what was called what I liked (Cartoons, Video Games…), so if it was now, I’m pretty sure they would have bought me the Chinese Pokemon set.

    Pokemon are also called Pocket Monsters over there, so Pocket Monika is a play off that.

    Funny thing is… these pictures actually make me feel Nostalgic. I grew up in Manila and when I was a kid there was this place our grandparents used to bring us to buy toys.

    It was a warehouse sized store that was called “Plastic City” and it was filled with toys like these. It reminds me of the days when children were happy with simple toys.

    All I know is that I want a Titanic-Bot and a horse-riding, lasso-wielding Superman.

    My favorite is Spaderman. I immediately pictured James Spader putting on the mask to become Spaderman – you friendly neighborhood mudslinger.
