    Top 10 most dangerous Toys of all time

    Top 10 Deadly Toys


    Ok- I am not laughing about dead or injured kids- but the way they wrote this article is downright funny.

    My daughter was launching her SkyDancer all over last night- so I got an extra giggle out of that. It was not recalled- not that I know of anyway.

    Wild. I had that Battlestar Galactica launcher. Never once did I think of putting the plastic missiles in my mouth, and I was only like 4 years old at the time.

    Actually, there is one that I'm quite surprised is missing form the list - the Slip and Slide. Those things did cause broken limbs and concussions when people didn't use them correctly (like putting them on concrete instead of grass, etc.).

    Pretty soon, the only "safe" toy available will be a Happy Fun Ball.

    Shawn got the Harley when he was 3. He never got hurt on it but quite a few of the adults that tried to ride it did

    I'm surprised Green Machine isn't on there. I swear my kids have gotten more road rash from that than anything else. We love it

    I'm surprised my brothers and I didn't get seriously hurt with the stunts we pulled on the slip and slide. We were bad.

    Skydancers were painful! And that's what made them so fun, we would launch them to see who would get hurt first. I ended up with 5 stitches on my eyebrow from one and my cousin (who was a boy and loved it nonetheless) almost lost an eye to one.

    My friend's son had one of those Motorcylces. Had the same problem with it too. Of course, when they had parties, all the kids wanted to ride the motorcyle of death.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    Legos are also dangerous to step on. Those sharp corners hurt almost as much as stepping on a tack.

    I once pinched some skin off my finger with Legos while snapping them together. It's only a matter of time before they're recalled as well, or made out of "bendy safety rubber" or something.

    These toys are some of the residents on the Island of Misfit Toys I bet.
