Groin Guns, Nook-ya-lur Toys and other life-threatening playthings

The box says Fun! Easy! Exciting!

Notice that "Safe!" is not one of the items on the list. In 1951, a mere $49.50 could get you the U-238 Atomic Energy Lab, containing three "very low-level" radiation sources, a Wilson Cloud Chamber and a Geiger counter. This item is #2 on Radar Magazine's "Ten Most Dangerous Toys of All Time". If you're wondering what the heck beats out a toy that needs to come with its own Geiger counter for World's Most Dangerous Toy, (carefully) click on. (via Cynical-C)
