We all had our favorite toys, but some of them were as confusing as they were fun.  From magical bottles to weird creatures that hatched and grew in front of our eyes... It's time to refresh your memory! 

Here are 17 toys that drove us crazy as kids.  So, which one of these brainteasers was your favorite?

The bottle's made of 2 containers separated by a thin gap that holds a small amount of milk.  This runs down into the reservoir when the bottle's turned upside down!

2. Colored sand that dried the instant you lifted it out of water.
