I thought this might be a fun discussion. The other day my brother and I were discussing some of the cool toys we had when we were kids and one common characteristic they all seemed to have was - they were all dangerous and could never exist today.
Just the thought of most of these would send today's Snowflakes running to the nearest therapist. :-)
Below are just some of my dangerous toys. There were many others.
Porter Chemistry Set. This was one of several sets that I had. Some of the included chemicals would probably warrant a HazMat team these days.
Atomic Energy Lab. What kid wouldn't be excited to play with a real chunk of U-238 to view live alpha and beta particle vapor trails. Create your own mutations!
Sonic Blaster Bazooka. Pump it up and it delivered a tremendously loud boom and air blast. Did we insert anything we found that fit down the barrel? Nooooooooo.
Johnny Seven O.M.A. (One Man Army). No further explanation needed!
Air Blaster - Another toy that would not shoot anything out the barrel. Yeah, right. :-)
