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.

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.
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.
