What kid doesn't love a day at the park? I remember going to the local park as a child, playing on the different brightly colored playground pieces there. Most were based on popular children's characters of the day.

So what happened at this park in the U.K.? Are they just not keeping the park up, letting it slide into disrepair? Had the sculptor never seen the actual movie on which he based his characters? Maybe it's just me, but these sculptures just look a bit on the creepy side, in my opinion. Take a look for yourself, then decide if this is something you'd want your child playing on.

Donkey On The Edge!

I think this is supposed to be the beloved Eddie Murphy character "Donkey" from the "Shrek" movies. Something about it just doesn't quite look right, however. It seems to have a bit of a psycho look about it, in my opinion

Shades Of "Jaws"

Here's the Donkey statue from the child's point of view. Is it just me, or does the gaping maw with what looks like rotting teeth rate pretty high on the disturbing meter?

Not Your Average Shrek

Don't get me wrong: I love a friendly ogre as much as the next person. But something about this statue fails to really capture the lovable, playful, harmless nature of the Shrek I came to know and adore.

Is This Who I Think It Is?

I think this is supposed to be Bart Simpson. Now, I'm no great fan of the "The Simpsons". But is this really a flattering recreation of a character that has been around for something like a quarter of a century?

TeleTubby, Maybe?

I think this is supposed to be one of the TeleTubbies from years ago. Not sure, though. I wonder if the original authors of these beloved characters are aware of this place?

Restroom Guard?

Not sure who this character is supposed to be. Is that a restroom in the background? Maybe this guy is just here to remind everyone not to make a mess in the latrine house.

On the positive side: if you want to teach your kids what it means to violate international copyright laws, this is the place to go for visual aids to go with the lesson.
