Dangerous toys from our youth

Continuing on the theme of the last couple of posts, let’s reflect back on toys we had as kids which parents wouldn’t DREAM of letting near their fragile Gen-BW kids these days.

I ran across a blog (The Poop) which had a great article on this: http://blog.sfgate.com/parenting/2007/08/17/recalling-toys-from-my-youth/

For those of you too lazy to click the link, we were exposed to the following horrors: BB guns, Explosives (Model rockets and chemistry sets), Firestarters (Easy Bake Oven, Lite Brite), Cutters (Snoopy Sno Cone machine), Anxiety-Attack Provokers (Perfection, Operation), Heart Breakers (Sea monkeys, x-ray glasses, pretty much anything you could order from a comic book), Low Tech (sharp sticks)

I can’t believe we are still alive!
