    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 :lol:

        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 :lol:

          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.

                        I remember several of those toys and owned at least 1, guess I was one of the lucky few to survive...

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

                                    When I was just a wee little lad, full of traumas and tears
                                    My father bought a toy for me confirming all my fears
                                    A horror to behold it was, and it filled me full of dread
                                    And the moment I laid eyes on it I knew he wished me dead
                                    I went

                                    (CHORUS):
                                    OUCH!! when it cut and YAAHH!! when it shocked
                                    And GGAUGGH!! when it caught in my throat
                                    I merely went and picked it up and that was all she wrote

                                    The Consumer Product Safety Board said this toy takes many lives
                                    With lead paint and electrical hazards and edges just like knives
                                    But my daddy wants no sissy son and he says to "Be a Man"
                                    So I went and picked it up again and it sliced off both of my hands
                                    I went
                                    (CHORUS)

                                    I first ran left and then ran right then hid under a chair
                                    But the toy pursued relentlessly till it found me hiding there
                                    I reached for the switch to turn it off but my skin touched a hot bare wire
                                    And a thousand volts shot up my arm and set my clothes on fire
                                    I went
                                    (CHORUS)

                                    Well somehow I survived those years now I have my own little boy
                                    And yesterday I gave to him my dangerous little toy
                                    His eyes nearly popped right out of his head; in fact they did, and now he's blind
                                    Cause he didn't see those two sharp spikes that were sticking up from behind
                                    Now he goes
                                    (CHORUS)

                                    Dan Hart

                                      We must be bad parents...Our kids have gone through four of those items! (and without being mamed)

                                      We got the recall notice for the motorcycle and had it repaired before it took our kids "for the ride of a lifetime".

                                      We still have a chewing Cabbage Patch doll brand new in the box. I was one of the morbid ones that bought one after we heard about their tendency to eat children. Previous to that, our daughter received one as a gift but was never devoured by it. With its newfound "popularity", maybe it's time to list it on eBay...

                                      The lawn darts and the flying dancers have long been discarded.

                                      The nuke kit looks interesting. Again, maybe I'll check on eBay!
