The most dangerous toy our parents gave us when we were kids was a potato. That, perhaps, explains our current obsession with shiny objects. In the spirit of reminiscing, Radar Mag has a roundup of the ten most dangerous toys in the last half century. These honestly don't stand up in comparison with the depression-era "Razor Flying Disc"—which was just one giant razor—or "Little Johnny's Smallpox Infection, Diagnosis, and Treatment Kit" that was so popular at the turn of the century.
Some of the more notable items Radar's list are Gilbert U-238 Atomic Energy lab with actual radioactive specimens, Bat Masterson's belt gun that went off when pudgy kids relaxed for just a second, and the Fisher-Price Power Wheels Motorcycle that resulted in some Steve-O-like trips around the neighborhood cul-de-sac.
