goods Hannah Montana slowly poisoning children even scarier the card game avoided a recall thanks to a legal loophole since the lead was found in its vinyl and not its paint meaning it stayed on shelves and in the hands of kids number nine Cabbage Patch snacktime kids step aside Hungry Hungry Hippos here come the cannibal Cabbage Patch Kids snacktime dolls were a must-have gift for Christmas 1996 they could bite and swallow plastic food in the eyes of children they were as good as human pets but with no mess on the other end unfortunately the dolls couldn't differentiate between plastic food fingers and ponytails over 100 reports were filed claiming the jaws clamped down on fingers and hair slowly pulling them in in one case a girl's hair was allegedly ripped down to the scalp Mattel

take along today's best and fast easy RC flight number 7 Zulu blowing game when it comes to toys the phrase choking hazard holds the title as the biggest buzzword in child safety but toys from the 1930s through to the 60s seem like they were designed to weed out and kill all but the smartest kids before they reached adulthood the Zulu blowgun from the Zulu blowing game was no exception these toys essentially streamlined asphyxiation a number of versions were sold between 1920 and 1960 but they all consisted of a long straw and small sharp darts put a dart in the straw inhale put it to your lips and blow you guessed it tons of kids got that order wrong and inhaled the darts ouch number 6 Battlestar Galactica colonial Viper remember a simpler time when companies didn't have to cover their products and warnings the early version has a missile at fires out at the front of the ship the people at Mattel sure do in the late 70s there were three reported cases of children accidentally shooting themselves in the face with the spring-loaded missile of the colonial Viper inhaling or swallowing the missile and choking reset catapult bankers on type one of these incidents sadly resulted in the death of a four-year-old child following a recall Mattel began to place choking hazard stickers on all of their toys with small parts a precaution that would go on to become mandatory for all toy manufacturers I find your reasoning logical number 5 CSI crime scene investigation fingerprint examination kit before we get into what makes this toy dangerous let's just acknowledge the fact that toys for children should have never been made based on the CSI television franchise considering the grisly subject matter looks like the planet Krypton kids should not be fans of this series period my nipples are all better you want to know you turns out this toy set was not only inappropriate but also poisonous the powder used for fingerprinting was proven to contain asbestos which when inhaled can cause deadly respiratory issues and even cancer later on in life this resulted in a class action lawsuit against CBS the network that licensed the toy in the wake of the public relations nightmare the manufacturer planet toys filed for bankruptcy this is an outrage I comparative investigation number 4 moon shoes nothing compares to new Nickelodeon moon shoes not so fast you don't know what you're missing until you've tried it spy shoes swings trampolines it seems like childhood is all about trying to launch your body as high as possible the first generation of moon shoes was released in the 1950s made of a type of metal these shoes lock your feet in like rollerskates and used Springs to help you reach the Stars watch the fan they were all so incredibly heavy resulting in a lot of property damage when kids landed on household items and injuries when kids botched the landing rolled an ankle or broke mom and dad's toes Oh God Nickelodeon released a much safer plastic version in the 90s but sprained and broken ankles continued – the fun number three Gilbert's u-238 Atomic Energy Laboratory this year at Gilbert we present the finest toy line in our history this is our story between 1910 and 1950 the AC Gilbert company was a big name in toys their 1913 erector set was one of the best-selling toys the world had ever seen and over the next 40 years the company continued to put out a wide variety of scientific playsets that were quite dangerous by modern standards Gilbert has made this exciting science available in safe and easy to understand for the chemistry set taught young kids to make explosives the glassblowing kit involved temperatures close to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit but the Atomic Energy Lab wins for most absurd with multiple kinds of uranium a Geiger counter to measure radioactivity and a cloud chamber to observe alpha particles in action Russell don't touch that it could be radioactive or something number two toy guns including BB guns guns it doesn't matter if kids are raised by registered NRA members or in strictly anti-gun households they live playing with toy guns maybe it's the speed of the projectiles the loud noises the influence of popular TV characters or all of the above BB and airsoft guns can take an eye out paintballs leave a serious bruise and cap guns often lead to burns there are over 200 instances of toy guns being mistaken for real firearms per year in the United States what what does it look like to you while many toy guns are not inherently dangerous they often look like the real deal and can lead to serious injury or death before we unveil our number one pick here are some honorable mentions number one lawn darts we were kids there weren't that many dumb kids because we had toys that would kill you remember lawn darts a cross between horseshoes and darts these oversized projectiles have plastic fins and big rounded weighted metal or sometimes plastic tips that ensure they fly true and land point-first simple outdoor fun for the whole family until someone gets seriously or fatally wounded by a stray dart also known as charts or yard darts were popular in the 1950s but were later banned because of injuries the ban was lifted in the 1970s under the condition they'd never be marketed to kids when a seven-year-old girl was killed by one it proved that the regulation couldn't keep them out of the hands of kids so this led to a strict ban in the United States do you agree with our list remember any particularly dangerous toys from when you were a kid yeah invisible shoes for more

  2. When I had to go to physical therapy (Joint issues {thanks dad}) they had me walk in moon shoes up stairs…… hE WAS TRYING TO KILL ME
