I can't believe it that toys like these actually exist - Delgia2k

Hard to believe that some people actually BOUGHT THIS for their kids. - Catacorn

2 Wood Burning Kit

Wood burning is a combination of etching and branding onto wood. The kit included a handheld hot iron powered by electricity. This toy was sold to children, and caused many serious injuries, and some deaths. - Wolftail

I know people who had almost every one of the toys on this list, and nothing happened to them.
According to actual owners of these toys, the dangers were well known, and easy to avoid, and anybody who got hurt with them was just stupid.

3 Gilbert Chemistry Set

This contained many dangerous chemicals, including some that could catch fire, and some that were poisonous. - Wolftail

Just, how many lawsuits has Gilbert had, with this and the glass set? - Turkeyasylum

4 Toy Guns

In October 2013, a policeman shot and killed a thirteen-year old boy in California, who was walking down the street carrying a toy replica of an AK47. The policeman thought it was the real thing and shot the boy. - Wolftail

Stupidest item on the entire list.
The kid in California virtually committed suicide, and his parents should be put into prison.
Hundreds of millions of kids have owned toy guns over the year without incident.

Not nerf guns bb guns I heard that one kid shot another kid in the lower jawline with one and wounded him

And then they went and made nerf guns for girls.
The darts for girls had a smaller value and costed more because they had patterns and pink ends.

They aren't that bad, though.

5 Creepy Crawlers

The machine used to make the bugs burnt children's fingers and the toxic fumes emitted from the machine were also hazardous. - Wolftail

6 Kite Tube

This allowed a boat-pulled rider to glide up in the air. But once riders were airborne, they were given little control over the tube. Three young adults have been killed using this toy, as well as several children. - Wolftail

7 Monster Science Colossal Water Balls

Kids all around the world swallowed the marble-sized balls which then got stuck in their intestines. From there it caused life-threatening dehydration and vomiting. And the balls couldn't be seen with a x-ray, and needed surgery to be removed. - Wolftail

8 The Swing Wing

Like a Skip-It, but worn on the head. When using this toy, kids started to self-harm themselves using the ball at the end of the toy. Injuries included spinal injuries and head injuries. - Wolftail

Look at the boy and girl in the cover of the toy I think they have red eyes. Weird!

Ouch! This was the only one I have seen. - Turkeyasylum

Those red things were the cheeks

9 Moon Shoes

These were marketed as mini trampolines for peoples' feet. But the company didn't think that the toy might cause broken ankles when they thought of it. - Wolftail

The Nickelodeon version of Moon Shoes was also on this list in which it had a orange logo. Viacom International sued the manufacturer of this toy for broken ankles. - playstationfan66

10 Hitler Doll

Whoever made this doll has know idea who he is - Officialpen

I googled it and there was a picture of a little girl hugging a hitler doll.

The Contenders

12 Lawn Darts

They were so dangerous that the U.S. Congress banned lawn darts. - Connor360

People died playing with these

13 Sky Dancer Dolls

These are especially dangerous, they can end up in dangerous places and cause danger.

They are too distracting and dangerous, they were banned at schools for being distractive and dangerous.

15 Burger King Pokeball plastic container 1999

Over 500 children swallowed over 400 of these. Those are returned to Burger King and exchanged for free French fries. - playstationfan66

Just like the Kinder Surprise.
How old were the kids?

My cousin actually got one and I came to her house so we could use it together. We didn't burn ourselves, but I got an upset stomach after eating the desserts made by the oven and threw up a lot. - Catacorn

17 Plush Toy Uterus

Because ALL children need to have a plush of a female reproductive gland.


18 Aqua Dots

This toy contained chemicals used in drugs, so they were called off.

19 Cabbage Patch Kids Doll

One time, a kid's hair was chewed by this toy from a horror film when she took the ridiculous toy to bed.

How is this bad?

It's the cabbage patch snack time doll, it has a chewing thing inside its mouth, so if you stick your finger inside the mouth, the doll will chew on it. And one girl even got her hair stuck inside the doll's mouth. - Catacorn

Ridiculous - Officialpen
