those spiral copters actually look fun, I even saw a ripoff called "maple leaf copter" or something like that, and i can imagine replacing the "copter" part with a lawndart...

Why do all the dangerous toys suck so hard?

Julio Dec 9th, 2008 06:01 AM

Well, I agree with Proto about that shotgun... It's pretty detailed and I wouldn't be surprised if a clueless cop shoots down a kid who's screaming like a goddamned chimp while chasing his friends.

Anyone that gives their infant a purse (especially a furry, pink purse), may not be all right in the head. It may look cute, but honestly… What is an infant going to do with a purse except try to eat the hair?

The laser eyes are a pretty serious manufacturing defect. Geez, they should regulate these things.

Can that ninja turtle mask look anymore retarted?

Not a lot of dangerous toys this year. Must be a dry season.

Doctor_Who Dec 9th, 2008 05:12 PM

With the possible exception of the giant inflatable ball (which at least gets some points for originality) I'd say that the true danger of these toys is their unflinching lameness. Merely owning anything on this list is going to get your crotchspawn beaten up daily.

Well, first of all, no cop in his right mind would gun down a child, even if he did have a realistic looking gun. Teenager and up, pointing the weapon at police after multiple times being told to put it down, thats another story (Its called Use of Force Continuum, people). And second of all, did anyone actually go to the W.A.T.C.H. website and look at their reasoning behind these dastardly toys?? They practically want an announcer to come with every toy, to brazenly state in a strident voice: "WATCH OUT KID, YOU CAN CHOKE ON THAT!" Like the warning on the box isn't enough any more...

The first thing I'd do with that giant inflato-ball is stuff my sister in it. THEN I'd roll it down a hill ^_^

"weapon comes with rubber ammo" police use rubber bullets for crowd control... i can only hope these toy guns use the same force...

When I was a kid, 90% of our toy guns were pretty damn realistic looking and not all covered in "don't shoot me officer" blaze orange - and I never got shot by a itchy trigger fingered cop.
I'm amazed that shotgun is available today.

I read the real safety regulations, and they say the Michelangelo nunchuks are bad beause the boz doesn't give warning that "impact injuries may occur." They're fucking nunchuks! They're used to hurt people!

Also, they talk about cautions on boxes and toys, but aI've never read a single box or toy in my life. Fine print is for lame-os.

Protoclown Dec 10th, 2008 12:46 AM

Unless I'm mistaken, some kid did get shot by a cop back in the 80s, which is why almost all toy guns are covered in blaze orange or at the very least have bright orange tips today.

Yeah, kids can (unfortunately) get accidentally shot by a police officer if they've got a realistic-looking gun. When I was working at a Halloween store I learned we weren't allowed to sell any kind of toy gun at all, since there had been some shootings the previous year of the above scenario (sure, said incidents happened in Oakland, but still...). It's a rough world, and if an officer sees someone pointing a gun at them, it tends to be instinct first (we all remember Die Hard).

Moving along, I'm pretty sure I would have killed to have that Inflatable Giga Ball when I was a kid. That thing is friggin' awesome.

Icculus Dec 10th, 2008 09:22 AM

Was it the same kid in NYC that climbed into the sewers to find the turtles?

bountyhunterseven Dec 12th, 2008 05:25 PM

After seeing the Giga ball, am I the only one who thought of Richard Pryor in THE TOY?? (No, Wonder Wheel...Dont die....)

It's happened several times. Hell, I'd shoot some little bastard pointing a rubber band at me.

KatiesGoldenDust Dec 14th, 2008 06:06 PM

All I can think about when I look at the giant inflatable ball is that lame guy who videotaped himself trying to get inside that giant balloon and failing miserably.

Geminate Dec 20th, 2008 05:38 PM

Giga Ball? Jumbo? Um, 51 inches in diameter does not even approach giga, and there is no way a kid of 4 years could ever fit inside of it. Either these kids on the box are tiny in the picture (dwarfs), or it is one of those advertising lies, showing a huge ball when it is really disappointingly small. Only one plus, it would take very little air to blow it up, so at least you won't get dizzy and pass out dealing with this little ball.

dawnna Dec 29th, 2008 05:55 PM

on the box it says it can hold 150 lbs. im 130 lbs so can i fit in that motherfucker?
