These eight toys were all the range in holidays past, but now you’re lucky if you can find them in a thrift store. Check out this list of banned toys. The Gilbert U-238 Atomic Energy Lab only hit shelves in 1951 and 1952 - because the serious scient kit for kids contained some uranium ore that’s even more poisonous than cyanide.
The Belt Buckle Derringer Toy Gun filled that void for kids who wanted to add weapons to their ensembles in 1959. Just stick out your stomach and a cap gun shot pellets from your waist - the accessory ended up burning lots of kids in the crotch.
Steven the Tramp was a Dick Tracy action figure that was released in 1990 and quickly taken off shelves for the insensitive branding “ignorant bum...you smell him before you see him”.
Aqua Dots, art beads that stuck together when sprayed with water, must have won the 2007 toy of the year award before people realized accidentally swallowing the dots lead to seizures.
Any children’s book published before 1985 was put on Congresses “no no” list for the amount of lead found in the ink.
Magnetic balls you can shape into other fun shapes? Might sound fun, but unfortunately Bucky Balls were much too appetizing to children and resulted in too many lawsuits for the company to handle.
Jarts were cut off from retailers in 1989, though the outdoor activity using lawn darts still has underground popularity. Regardless of the fun factor the US had to ban the toy because large darts that you throw around outside are just plain dangerous.
