    Re: The 10 most dangerous play things of all time

    I remember the time when the Battlestar Galactica ships were on recall. It seemed like all the toy companies shyed away for a while with toys that launched objects.

    They merely wanted a nibble—a carrot perhaps, or maybe some yummy pudding. They would stop chewing when snack time was done—they promised. Then they chomped your child's finger off.
    Sounds like a horror movie tag line!

    I remember these! I loved lawn darts. My daughters had the pixie things, and did get hurt by them. Wonder if I could have sued........

    Creepy Crawlers...one of my favorite toys...and remember constantly getting small burns on my fingers from it. LOL Oh well, I survived...

    But totally forgot about the stench they caused until was reminded of it on this thread.

    Yeah, Lawn Darts...I'm up for a game!!!

    Re: The 10 most dangerous play things of all time

    I also loved Lawn Darts but played the game in the 70's. My half-sister had a set and taught me to play when she lived with us for a short time which was in the early/mid 70's.

    I really wanted the creepy crawlers and did finally get one that made a skelton that you put together. I liked the smell of the heating goo and think I only burned myself once. I also really wanted the one you could eat. Bugs and worms on ice cream cones was what was featured in the commercials and I thought that was cool.

    Didn't have the cannon but remember the commercial and song. (I don't think I ever knew all of the words before)

    Remember hearing about child eating Cabbage Patch Doll and I bought the twirling pixie for a friends daughter one year but never heard of any accidents.

    I would love to have the Atomic Lab now. But I have to agree that it was great to be a kid when child saftey meant that you played ball outside and adult supervision was when your father let you bake bugs on his work bench while he worked on the car across the garage.

    Re: The 10 most dangerous play things of all time

    we had lawn darts......and they were perfectly safe....well, except for that one time I nicked the dog. I mean, yeah, she yelped and bled for a while...but, after about an hour...she was fine. She never did go in the side yard again, though.



























    I'm kidding. But, I did have lawn darts.

    Re: The 10 most dangerous play things of all time

    I remember the Galactica Recall. I wnated to keep them, but Mom threw them away, so we bought Star Trek Phasers, which shot out plastic discs 3 to 4 times the distance and force!

    I always wondered why the lawn darts became so wussy.

    My easy bake oven was pretty sweet. Cooking things in a plastic 'oven' by light bulb was really high tech! Some tasty things came out of that and surprisingly didn't taste like plastic.

    Oh, yeah! I had one of those. It was so cool. The cakes where actually good.
