what type of toys did you guys have growing up that should have never made it out on the market? i.e lawn darts, wood iron, chemistry set,etc.

I had a chemistry set........and found out the purple powder stuff tasted like sugar, and the blue liquid stuff had a taste reminiscent of oranges.

Put them together and BAM Chemistry set Kool Aid

lol half the toys we had at our age would now be considered un fit parenting if you gave them to kids now days

I had....mainly Matchbox and Hotwheel cars, then I got into builing models, and did a lot of custom stuff on them (Exhaust, bodykits, etc) and now I work on real 1:1 cars...

I too am like Satty, although i am younger but still. I still have most if not all my hotwheels (i crushed the ones i didnt like :laughing: ). I got into building models and doing a few different things with them, nothing major. We have atleast 50-60 model car/trucks/boats/planes, some built and some not. The moved onto working on bikes and now soon to be real cars :mrgreen:

matchbox and hotwheels were my LIFE as a (small) child. Buckets and buckets full, unfortunatly my asshole mom threw them away when I moved (along with all of my other childhood memories :ohcrap: )

I had some one of those chemistry type sets (if you could even really call it that) that had things you could make and eat. I also had some of those strechy dudes. I forgot the name of them. My dad has been buying these old 60s toy robots off of eBay.
