Not So Fun Anymore: Photos Of Abandoned Toy Factories

toy-factories-1.jpg

This is a series of photos from abandoned toy factories. Presumably after the dolls came to life and murdered all the workers, but possibly because analog toys have taken a backseat to video games for the past 30 years. Maybe kids just aren't playing with dolls anymore. I remember growing up I had a Cabbage Patch Kid. He was a good friend. Not as good as Stretch Armstrong though, which is how Stretch convinced me to fill him with fireworks and blow him up in the backyard. Then I felt so betrayed I tied one of Stretch's arms to a door knob and jumped down the stairs holding the other one. Honestly, I'm surprised I'm not a serial killer.

Keep going for some highlights, but check out the whole pictorial at io9.

Thanks to lebeeps, who agrees the best toys don't come from factories, they're found in the woods. Heck yeah, sticks and rocks!
