These days most toys go through rigorous safety testing before being released, and yet a few defective playthings still manage to slip through and make it into stores before they're summarily recalled.
But back in the day defective and dangerous toys were coming out left and right, and yet kids still somehow managed to survive the days of lawn darts, Slip N' Slide and Moon shoes.
This countdown video by TheWacky doesn't include lawn darts, but it does include classic toys like Creepy Crawlers and the almighty Slip N' Slide that brought back great memories.
Oh, and when I was 10 I used a chemistry set I got for Christmas to make some kind of caustic and smoky substance that I used to get rid of a nest full of wasps in our tool shed. Good times!
