Toys that Should Be Banned in the Future

Gregory
Here’s a list of toys that are still there but are likely to be recalled in the future.

The Top Ten

1 Trampolines Trampolines

Yeah, home trampolines are causing accidents for kids. That is why inside (in centers or amusements) trampolines are safer by them, but needs supervision. - yamionthetrap

It's alright just supervise your kids and nothing bad will happen. - XxembermasterxX

Too many accidents from this, more than from any other toy ever made, leading to a loss of faith from a number of parents and children. - Gregory

Trampolines have caused and put more kids in danger than any other toy ever made.

Yes, I've heard of many accidents. - Metal_Treasure

2 Fidget Spinners Fidget Spinners

Fidget Spinners were invented in 1993 and were hugely popular, then were trending again in 2017, where many children fidgeted and let them spin, which takes quite a while to come to a stop.

Unfortunately these toys are known to distract children from things, leading to schools banning them.

Not only that, many people were injured by them, and also they contain extremely high levels of lead, which is the 2nd most toxic household chemical on Earth, only behind arsenic.
Far more lead than 40 parts per million, which the American Academy of Pediatrics says toys shouldn’t contain more than.

These have made it onto the list of dangerous toys and toys that should be banned from Earth in the future. - Gregory

This existed in the 90s? And people were injured by them? Wow, I learned more today. Thanks for this list! - Misfire

They were made in 1993 and there have been numerous injuries.
Yet these toys contain dangerous amounts of lead, and they distract students at school. - Gregory

3 Baby Walkers

These toys have caused multiple children to be hospitalized with numerous injuries due to their setup, making these toys dangerous, yet they’re still around but should be banned in the future. - Gregory

4 Gunslinger

Toy guns are dangerous and this is no exception.
It’s still on the market and should be banned. - Gregory

5 Jibber Jabbers

These toys were known to let players choke their necks and make a choking sound and taught them to shake babies, leading to shaken baby syndrome on the babies, putting these toys on the list of hopefully being banned in the future. - Gregory

6 Zulu Blow Gun

Anything called a gun is not suitable to play with and this is also known to be a severe choking hazard, making it highly dangerous. - Gregory

7 Boba Fett Action Figure

This toy would’ve been a hit for Star Wars fans, but unfortunately it fired rockets
and incidents took place where it flew into a person’s mouth, causing children to choke and suffocate.

Yet the downside is that it’s still on the market though it’s highly expensive now considering how dangerous it is. - Gregory

8 Cylon (Battlestar Galactica)

This toy allowed children to fire fake missiles which would lead to multiple injuries and property damage, yet toy weapons of any kind are a hazard and this is still around. - Gregory

9 Rubber Band Guns

First of all, toys guns of any kind are not safe, yet 2nd, rubber bands themselves can be dangerous and this was no exception.

The rubber band gun fired rubber bands on people, causing numerous skin injuries and even lacerations.

Despite the complaints it ensued, they still exist and can be sold. - Gregory

They are guns and things with guns in it is bad!

10 Hannah Montana Pop Star Card Game

The Hannah Montana pop star card game would've been a potential if it didn't fail the safety tests by containing dangerously high levels of lead.

The American Academy of Pediatrics states that no toys should contain more than 40 parts per million (0.004%) of lead, but the Hannah Montana Pop Star Card Game contained 75x that level, at a whopping 3,000 parts per million (0.3%).

However the lead was contained in the paint covering the image in the cases, but still kids coming into contact with and swallowing lead report serious health problems and since the lead was on the paint, the toys are still on the market shelves and are considered to be banned at least as of this version to hopefully be modified to remove much of the lead contained in the toys, so that no more than 40 parts per million exists due to safety reasons.

After all, better safe than sorry. - Gregory

Good point

The Contenders

11 Springballs

These were made to help children balance, but unfortunately many children fell and experienced injuries, but unfortunately they didn’t get banned. - Gregory

12 Burger King’s Pokémon Toys 1999

400 deaths, man, this should be number one

There was only 1 death, but 500 (not 400) children did choke and had to be hospitalized.
But 499 survived.
Now it doesn't take many deaths to a recall a toy. - Gregory

500 children swallowed over 400 of them and choked, leading to safety concerns of the toys. - Gregory

13 LEGO playsets that fire rockets

Because of course, little rockets can land on people’s mouths and choke them, yet legos in general are choking hazards. - Gregory

14 Leapfrog Fun & Learn Phonics Bus

These toys are being used by some children as skateboards, putting children at risk of tripping over and getting injured.

We know this wasn’t meant to be a skateboard, but very young children don’t know much how safe something is or how dangerous and can’t properly distinguish toys from other things. - Gregory

15 Non-edible Play-Doh

Unfortunately, standard play-doh isn't edible and many kids think it's food, so they eat it and suffer health conditions along with suffocation.
Edible play-doh should be the only type that's available for safety of little children. - Gregory
