The toy industry is one of the biggest businesses on the planet. Every single year parents and children spend billions on action figures, models, cars and other devices. They not only provide fun and entertainment to kids of all ages but also ensure they learn to socialize by playing with others and develop important skills for their later lives. With the industry being so large, it can sometimes be difficult for manufacturers to come up with new designs. A strong name can help to market the toy immensely as well, especially if you don’t use one of these highly inappropriate choices.
Apparently no one at this toy company thought that giving young children matching toys with the names Pull Along Pussy and Pull Along Cock was inappropriate. That or someone had a rather dark sense of humor at the company.
Creating a toy aimed primarily at teenage boys and calling it Balzac may not have been the best idea. They were obviously going to make the leap to the similar sounding phrase ball-sack.
