Kid Killers  
Nine toys my generation* survived.
*Well, most of us, anyway.

Thanx to File 770

Haha, I had Dip-A-Flower, Creepy Crawlers and Jingle Jump. Dip-A-Flower was messier and harder to use than it appeared on TV, and Jingle Jump was boring once one had mastered it, but my brother and I spent countless summer hours down in the nice cool basement, making an army of Creepy Crawlers. Sure, we burned ourselves a little now and then, but the Thingmaker wasn't nearly as hazardous as the wood-burning kit that I only ever tried to use once.

Jarts were fun! But we made sure to stay far away from the goal because we knew they were dangerous.

Fortunately, my parents sold my childhood home, including the garage, so we're not legally liable.
