I used to think it was scary that today’s kids are playing with iPads. However, after seeing just how terrifying toys used to be, I know that they’re much, much better off now. After getting a look at some of them, you’ll be wondering how anyone thought it was a good idea to give them to kids. Was the idea to make sure they never sleep again? Because I know I won’t.
Check them out!

Foot-wheel Doll – That was my reaction to seeing the other toys too.

I can’t help but feel like these toys ruined my childhood… and I didn’t even grow up playing with them. Looking at them is honestly enough to give you nightmares. I feel sorry for the kids who used to play with these.
