    I think that is a fan made toy and not something that was sold as a kids toy. Although I'd love to be wrong!

    If you want disturbing toys just go check out a toy store and look at all those toy babies that do various things. Those are some scary toys. *shudders*
    They look so lifeless and it creeps me out.

    btw, check out the pyramidhead pony! (fanmade)

    That was actually NOT on topic at all. Somehow i thought i posted that in the childrens' shows thread haha. Either a mod can move it or i can hijack the thread but i feel bad doing that.

    EDIT by HR: I moved it to the appropriate thread.

    yeah it was like 2 dollars and i saw it at a register someplace when we were buying other stuff. i was like "oh i need that!" and bought it.

    but that's how i get all the awesome stuff. impulse buys haha.

    disturbing toys though? hmmm. i have seen "platoon" action figures. maybe i'm making too much of it considering the movies and video games coming out now, but those seem a bit much to be giving to a little kid to me lol. is the "full metal jacket" talking sgt. hartman next?

    pull his string and he says "BULL SHIT! I bet you could suck a golfball through a garden hose!"

    or maybe "apocalypse now" for the Wii?

    "The horror. The horror."

    The set originally sold for $49.50 and contained the following:

    U-239 Geiger radiation counter;
    Electroscope to measure radioactivity of different substances;
    Spinthariscope to watch "live" radioactive disintegration;
    Wilson Cloud Chamber to see paths of electrons & alpha particles at 10k mps;
    Three very low-level radioactive sources (Alpha, Beta, Gamma);
    Four samples of Uranium-bearing ores;
    Nuclear Spheres (used to visual build models of molecules);
    The book "Prospecting for Uranium";
    The "Gilbert Atomic Energy Manual";
    The comic book "Learn How Dagwood Splits the Atom";
    Three "Winchester" Batteries (size "C").

    "And what nuclear lab for kids would be complete without an Atomic Energy Manual and Learn How Dagwood Splits the Atom comic book? (The latter was written with the help of General Leslie Groves, director of the Manhattan Project.)

    Kids do the darndest things, but not, apparently, nuclear physics. The toy was only sold for one year. It's unclear what effects the uranium-bearing ores might have had on those few lucky children who received the set, but exposure to the same isotope—U-238—has been linked to Gulf War syndrome, cancer, leukemia, and lymphoma, among other serious ailments. Even more uncertain is the long-term impact of being raised by the kind of nerds who would give their kid an Atomic Energy Lab."



    This must be one of the most dangerous toys ever. I think it was taken off the shelves, for some reason, about 1953

    I hope the link works as its the first time iv tried to use photobucket and im not brilliant with computers

    EDIT by moderator: If you look underneath your picture on PhotoBucket, you have several choices of how to copy it to a forum. Click on the one that suits your need the best and it will automatically copy the code. Then paste it in a forum, e-mail, etc. Doing that will prevent others from accessing all of your albums. In the example above, I chose "IMG Code."

    hi hardrocker. thanks for getting the pic up for me. I dont really know how do do it properly. What a toy lol. Imagine what shape we would all be in if every parent bought one before they got banned lol. Apparently there were vouchers issued with this toy which you could buy more uranium ore with.

    I wonder how many kids swallowed some uranium. Years after that toy was long forgotten, cancer eats you alive.

    Warning, this toy may cause hair and teeth loss, bleeding gums and general decay of your child's internal organs. Have fun.:eyes

    All of that is quite safe. People hear the word 'radioactive' and their mind circuits melt, when in reality, almost everything in the natural world is decaying in some degree - there's background radiation everywhere. Unless Junior is licking his hands after tracking atomic fission in his cloud chamber, he'll be fine. Alpha, beta, gamma... I for one think it's sad we've stopped letting kids do awesome experiments and have instead substituted stupid, mind-numbing activities and toys for fear of 'danger.' A Boy Scout once made his own breeder reactor. Things happen. Life goes on. And if you lived in 1952, life went on a lot more awesomely.

    Speaking of inappropriate toys for children, anyone seen the insane Mattel brand Harry Potter vibrating broomsticks? How did that pass CPSC inspection?
