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

No way don't they still sell ones with bars that kids can hold onto. I had one when I was little.
Also they are good for exercise.
I saw the Kinder Surprise well they do have the age for them.

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.

2 Fidget Spinners Fidget Spinners

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

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 some in Target stores were thankfully banned for containing extremely high levels of lead (which is the 2nd most toxic household chemical on Earth, only behind arsenic), an eye-popping 33,000 parts per million (ppm - 3.3%).
Far more lead than 40 ppm (0.004%), which the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says toys shouldn’t contain more than.
So they contained a whopping 825 X that level.
But many fidget spinners worldwide still exist today and the risks keep increasing.

They were meant to help children with ADHD and autism, but unfortunately only caused distractions and dangers.
Yet the metal circles come ...more - Gregory

They were meant to be a way for kids to calm them down from disorder conditions & anxiety, but instead they caused distractions, so schools banned them. They’re known to cause injuries by unsuspected children & some were pulled off the shelves for containing dangerous amounts of lead, at a whopping 33,000 parts per million & electronic ones overheated, causing fires. Fidget spinners aren’t entirely safe. - SamanthaRosie

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

I fell down the stairs while I was in 1 of those as a baby :(

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 (AAP) states that no toys should contain more than 40 parts per million (0.004%) 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 vinyl rather than the paint, but still kids coming into contact with and swallowing lead report serious health problems including lead poisoning and since the lead was on the vinyl rather than the paint, the toys are still on the market shelves, yet should consider being 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

We all know Miley Cyrus messed up, but that wasn’t the problem with this. The problem was these contained harmful amounts of lead, at 3,000 parts per million, but they were still on the shelves because the lead was in the vinyl (a carcinogenic material) rather than the paint & the law only applies to paint. Now since these have vinyl, they put children at risk of cancer & children are at greater risk of vinyl-induced cancer than adults. - SamanthaRosie

11 Burger King’s Pokémon Toys 1999

It's like the Kinder Surprise.
How old were the kids?
0-3 year olds cannot have Kinder Surprise.

These toys are Rather Dangerous but, It's the Parent's fault for giving the Baby the toy IN THE FIRST PLACE! - Rainbowkid38

Those were so dangerous that they had to be recalled. These caused more incidents than any other toy besides the kinder surprise & trampolines. - SamanthaRosie

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 or injuries alone to ban a toy. - Gregory

12 Springballs

I hope they do, bouncy balls suck

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

13 Kinder Surprise Kinder Surprise

Proof that Eggs are Evil. - Rainbowkid38

I think it has a warning on it saying not for kids under 3.
0-3 year olds cannot have Kinder Surprise.
Now go and fire your guns at the school shooting.

These toys are utterly dangerous. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

Now has a warning - Maddox121

14 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

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

I ate play doh lololololol - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

Play-doh has put children at further risk of suffocation due to confusion between non-edible stuff & food. Play-doh has the color, smell, texture & taste of food that babies like to eat & babies eat everything, making it a total choking hazard & standard play-doh isn’t meant to be eaten. They needed to rethink their business. - SamanthaRosie

16 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.
Yet some children try to ride these down stairs, also posing risk of fall injuries.

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

17 Vinyl Beach Balls

Beach balls are made of vinyl, which is extremely toxic & carcinogenic, putting people at risk of cancer. Vinyl even emits fumes, which also risk cancer & it’s dangerous at all times. The risk of cancer is increased by a factor of 6 & children are at greater risk of such cancers than adults & children play with beach balls. If they were replaced with non-toxic biodegradable ones, the risk of such cancers would be unlikely. Cancer kills people every year, kids & adults. Also vinyl is bad for the environment & is one of the materials responsible for unwanted climate change & global warming, so if these toxic beach balls were banned & replaced with biodegradable ones, the environment would be even safer. - SamanthaRosie

18 Wubble Bubble Balls

Many kids don’t realize the inflation point has a bull’s eye pattern that makes the ball overall look like a female chest part. What were the designers thinking when they thought of this toy. Never expose kids to such vulgar imagery. - SamanthaRosie

19 Plastic Food

Babies could eat them and choke and die - Craopoo
