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.

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...
