* In Victorian times, many toys were sold to or for children that wouldn't be today, making it resemble this trope; although you may prefer to think of it as ValuesDissonance. Mid-range trains and steamships could be powered by some rather heavy metal clockwork systems, and many were driven by live steam. Leaving aside some cast-iron toy ranges, most parents have some sort of weird problem with giving their children a live boiler powered by a naked flame to play with.

* In the "WesternAnimation/SonicBoom'' episode, "Tommy Thunder: Method Actor", when Tommy Thunder comes to visit the Unnamed Village, Dave the Intern announces that as a tie-in with Tommy's latest movie, Meh Burger has cheaply made Meh Meal toys, which he claims are "Guaranteed to have 12% fewer jagged edges". He ends up cutting his fingers on one, which appears to be a metal Nerf football with Tommy's face on it.

* Some landmines, particulaly aerial mines, have been deployed in warzones in a form that is easily mistaken for a plastic toy. When handled, this typically bounces up into a child's face before finally blowing.

* ''Film/{{Toys}}'': This Robin Williams vehicle focused on the new owner of a toy factory switching production to toy tanks and helicopters armed with real weapons he meant to sell to the military. He also starts a videogame division to get kids into violence in order to have future soldiers. The videogame was actually a simulation/prototype. The new owner's plan was to have kids ''[[Literature/EndersGame remote-control operate actual war machines without knowing it.]]''

* ComicBook/GastonLagaffe did this twice. One time he repaired a nephew's toy tank that shot sparks on the day [[StuffBlowingUp there was a gas leak in the office]]. Another time, he made a working toy tank that shot tiny firecrackers and a toy bomber (that moved around the ceiling on wires) that dropped little bombs, [[SoapboxSadie to prove that kids need to learn what the real things are like]].

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Robotomy}}'' has Tickle Me Psycho, a MyPetMonster-meets-Tickle Me Elmo-style doll with the screechy, nasal voice of Creator/GilbertGottfried who acts like a complete {{Jerkass}} to robot kids (in the commercial, he stole a kid's drink, drank it, and tossed the cup in the child's face, ripped another kid's fingers off and ate them, and tore a third kid's "I Love You" card and kicked him. It ends with Tickle Me Psycho yelling, "I can't stand kids!") and is plotting a war against them.

* ''Film/TankGirl''. Sam's Danger Ball is one of these, much to Creator/IggyPop's surprise. It shoots out blades when anyone claps their hands nearby.
