15 Worst Toys Ever Recalled


From sky-dancing Barbies that can cut your face open, to sticks that can gouge out your eyeballs, we count 15 dangerous and ridiculous toy ideas to get recalled en masse.

15 – Easy Bake Oven


  • These were originally made for kids in the 1960s when companies noticed they liked to mimic things adults do, so they’d manufacture toy cars or, in this case, a cooking appliance
  • And apparently kids also liked getting their fingers burnt off, which we can see here with the Easy Bake Oven
  • In 2007, Hasbro recalled almost a million ovens after 200 reports of kids jamming their appendages in the oven’s opening, and a 5 year old girl whose finger got partially amputated from severe burns
  • I’d like to believe her finger got stuck, and she didn’t willingly sit for hours wondering why her skin seemed to be melting off

14 – Clackers


  • These came out in the 70s, and they’re still around today – two rock-hard balls held together by cords with a design inspired by nothing sexual
  • The problem with Clackers is that they’re adept at caving in your face, breaking off teeth and causing violence on par with acts of terrorism
  • In fact, the design was so shoddy that most of the time the ball would break off the string and go flying off to break some expensive china or kill a small infant
  • They weren’t technically recalled, just redesigned to be safer, so you might still encounter these in dark alleyways

13 – Aqua Dots


  • You know these – the small jewellery beads you glue together under water to form patterns
  • What you didn’t know is that they could also be used to drug and rape women at nightclubs
  • In 2007, it was discovered that the glue contained chemicals that metabolised into GHB, the date-rape drug
  • The toy’s manufacturer blamed a Chinese subcontractor and recalled all 4.2 million Aqua Dot kits, then re-branded them Pixos still available today
  • So if you’re ever in a dark nightclub and you manage to avoid the Clackers, be wary what jewellery might end up in your drink

12 – Plush Toy Uterus


  • A common gift for any child, this adorable female genitalia toy was manufactured by I Heart Guts – and while you might think it was recalled because someone came along and said it was inappropriate, no, the truth is those ovaries could be detached and transformed into a choking hazard for infants
  • Yes, that which gave the child life could also take it away with a big smile on its face
  • Thankfully they voluntary recalled it and released a new version that probably can’t kill you

11 – Barbie Sky Dancers


  • A lot of people should remember this one, I know I certainly do since my sister was always catapulting them through the air where they’d spin all the way to the ground
  • And now I’ve just learned these twirling death machines caused innumerable blindness, broken teeth, facial lacerations, concussions and even comas in kids – so now I feel quite lucky to be alive
  • Almost 9 million were recalled in the year 2000, and the bloodshed concluded
