The Laughing Stork

“The Toypedo?” Really?


“The Toypedo?” Really?

Brand naming and packaging that makes you go,”Oh no, they di-in’t!”:

Um, questionable branding approach, no?   A case study in how NOT to market to kids.

And in other news, the TOYPEDO becomes quite popular with amorous women as well!


Candy Kirby is the founder of The Laughing Stork and a professional fun-maker who will never stop chasing her lifelong dream: to find the Pomeranian or porn star after whom her parents must have named her. A humor columnist for Disney, Nickelodeon, Scary Mommy, Reductress and Redbook, she also used to be a staff writer for the soap opera, The Bold and the Beautiful, where she penned many scripts featuring prolonged heated stares and countless “Who’s the Daddy?” story lines. Candy lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two young kids and three rescue Persian cats, the latter of whom are the real brains behind this operation (so send all complaints to them).
