The Banned Toy Museum

Apropos to the Toy Hall of Fame inductees announcement, I thought it might be time to share some of the denizens of the Island of Misfit Toys currently curated at the Banned Toys Museum.

The ever popular lawn darts are on exhibit, along with some more obscure offerings such as Cabbage Patch dolls that would bite you, and this magnificent belt buckle-mounted cap gun that fired an actual projectile.

While these exhibits might be impressively dangerous, I don’t think you can top a “toy” that came with it’s own radioactive ore.

These days, a dad bringing that thing back home from a business trip as a surprise for little Johnny would probably end up in Guantanamo Bay…

I owned a couple of these myself (alas, not the nuclear fun kit) and still have all my eyes and fingers. How a bout you guys?
