I love that Dunny and Mr. Bumper are both the best and the worst!
A skitsophrenic list.

I love the Dunny line and Mr. Bumper! They should be striken from the Worst list. There are way lamer and uglier toys out there.

Rar, next year I will see this earlier and vote.
I can't believe UNKL/Unipo didn't make it on the list!
