Childhood should be a time of innocence, joy, and wonder. But for generations, toy-makers have tortured impressionable children with the likes of terrifying playthings that would strike fear into the heart of Chuck Norris himself.

One such toy, the Furby, is making a modern-day return to toy-store shelves. (We weep for children everywhere.)

In honor of the furry little freak's plan to creep out a whole new generation of wee ones, we've procured a collection of the scariest toys from our childhoods that would make even Superman shudder.

Sweet dreams.

4. Baby Alive
Any piece of plastic that eats and poops presents a serious problem. For us, the theme song brought back lots of memories. Scary, scary memories.
