The pink tool box and car kit
Ugh, did we not just admonish the feminization of products by making them pink? It's such a lazy way out. The Tool Box and Car Kit are so over the top though, you'd think it was a joke...except it's not - they're fully functioning tools. They look more like "Barbie does tools" (especially with that retro illustration that adorns almost every single item) than anything that you would want to seriously whip out in case of a car emergency. If you got caught using one of these things in public, wouldn't you be somewhat embaressed? I mean kitsch is one thing, but these? 'Nuff said.
