*** And bare in mind, this is not only from a toyline that's not just ''universally'' reviled amongst the fandom due to [[Main/ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy its inaccuracy to the show]], and the general quality its Basic-class figures overall[[note]]Nearly none of the other Maximal figures from this size class (baring Night Viper) fare any better than Silverbolt[[/note]]. But also from the same line that introduced the short-lived "Supreme" sub-line- A series of figures that were ''supposed'' to be more show accurate to its counterparts, yet [[EpicFail failed]] '''''[[EpicFail hard]]'''''. Case in point: [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/File:BM_Supreme_Cheetor.jpg Supreme Cheetor]]. A figure hyped up by Hasbro themselves to be as show accurate as possible. Only it was hindered by its obtrusive gimmicks (which affected arm articulation ''horribly''); butt-ugly design; a [[OffModel completely inaccurate color scheme]] (his normally purple spots became black, and he suddenly sported green abs with no explanation) and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking a complete inability to stand under its own power]]. Needless to say, [[CaptainObvious the experiment bombed]], and the figure was clearanced almost immediately after its release.

* The 2003 '''[[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Powerpuff Girls]] Girl's Makeup Kit''', which contained pink lotion that was contaminated with Pseudomonas aeruginosa, not something you're going to want your little girl to be slathering on her face, as it can be deadly for children with damaged immune systems, and even in a healthy child can lead to eye abscesses and ear infections...and, in rare cases, '''[[EpicFail meningitis]]'''. Sounds more like a evil plot by the Amoeba Boys than a kid's toy.

* What about the ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' "hidden blade" katana toy? Y'know, the one with the ''hard plastic spring-loaded blade'' in the handle? The one that shot out with such force that it can cause ''blunt force trauma'' if the kids weren't expecting it? The one that can be activated by an ''easily-hit trigger'' in the handle? Yeah, that one. How could this be safe for kids?

* In August of 2016, during its big marketing push for UsefulNotes/TheOlympics in Rio, [=McDonald's=] sold the '''STEP iT! Activity Band''' in its Happy Meals across North America in an attempt to encourage kids to exercise more by measuring how many steps they take. Unfortunately, the product was so cheaply made that many kids (over 70, to be precise) reported suffering skin irritation from wearing the things with at least ''seven'' receiving burns and blisters, forcing [=McD's=] to recall the product within eight days of its launch.

* '''Chilly Bang! Bang!''' was a chilled juice-drink toy released in 1989 by Mackie International consisting of a gun-shaped packet of juice. To drink it, you had to stick the barrel in your mouth and pull the trigger. And if you thought ''{{Persona 3}}'' was controversial...

*** Surprisingly, the Sky Dancers toy design has been [[http://shop.mattel.com/shop/en-us/ms/dc-superhero-girls-toys/dc-super-hero-girls-action-flying-supergirl-doll-drh14 brought back]] by Mattel for a ''WesternAnimation/DCSuperheroGirls'' tie-in. Let's hope they learned from Galoob's mistakes.

* The '''[[http://www.independent.co.uk/news/weird-news/lists/dollar-store-toy-wand-has-hidden-picture-of-demonic-child-cutting-herself-with-a-kitchen-knife-9850505.html Evilstick]]''' (sic). At first glance, it looks like an ordinary cheap-looking bootleg toy, complete with an infringing image of ''Manga/CardCaptorSakura'' on the package. The package claims to [[BlatantLies "send out wonderful music"]] when the toy actually plays a creepy laugh. The worst part: some have a photograph of a [[EnfantTerrible demonic-looking girl]] [[NightmareFuel slitting her wrist with a knife]] [[HarmfulToMinors hidden behind the foil]], and it was ''[[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids marketed as a children's toy!]]''
