Parents have enough to worry about when it comes to keeping their kids safe—the last thing they want is a toy that’s going to put someone’s eye out…or randomly explode. Toys undergo extensive testing now to ensure that they are safe to use and won’t result in explosive surprises. But things were a little different in the past, and there were a number of dangerous toys on the market that had no business being on store shelves. The results were not pretty, which prompted many of these toys to be recalled.
