Gangsta Babies Keeping It Very Real, Unfortunately


Mezco Toyz introduced Gangsta Babies, a set of four 10-inch vinyl baby dolls decked out like refugees from a 2004 ad agency trend board. They illustrate perfectly the risks of designing a product that parrots fleeting trends instead of trying to attain an actual creative vision. Though that red-haired one does give me an idea for a series of baby unfunny comedians that'd include Carrot Top, Joe Piscopo, Carlos Mencia, and Jeff Foxworthy. Or Larry the Cable Guy? Wait, aren't they the same guy?

Gangsta Babies are available for pre-order, which means they'll be even lamer when they finally arrive. []
