** Some U.S. states have actually made it illegal to own chemistry glassware, on the grounds that [[HitlerAteSugar they could be used to make methamphetamine]]. Even in states where it is legal, you have to have a license from the Department of Homeland Security

* Home chemistry sets used to be quite popular for young science nerds. However, fears of poisoning, acid burns, and explosions soon brought the combination of [[FrivolousLawsuit lawsuits]] and MoralGuardians to stop sales. "Chemistry" sets can still be purchased, however they contain practically nothing of any use. Buying a box of baking soda is the same thing.

* There are plenty of (usually comedic) fantasy novels whose protagonists reminisce about having a morningstar instead of a rattle.

* The most infamous: Lawn Darts. Which are large, heavy, metal-tipped darts that kids are given to throw at targets placed on their lawn. Needless to say, throwing spearlike "toys" is not a good idea. Considering lawn darts are the modern equivalent of the [[http://www.armchairgeneral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39726 plumbatae]] of the Late Roman Empire. Even worse - the original game required each player to place their target at ''their own feet'' from where you would throw your darts at your opponents targets placed at ''their feet.'' Even six year olds knew this was a bad idea.

* On ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'', everything made by Wacko Toys is intentionally dangerous to children, because the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive CEO]] hates children, and his employees have no problem with it beyond greed. Examples include a board game that punches you if you land on a certain square, another board game where if you mess up you get electrified, a [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin bag of tacks]], a robot that starts off friendly before trapping kids within their own houses until they're 18, an exploding frisbee, mechanical alligators, helium-based gum, exploding gum, and a prison disguised as a video game.

* In ''WesternAnimation/Ben10AlienForce'', a little alien loses her toy. The toy in question can shapeshift, regenerate, and mimic other people and aliens' special abilities. Not only that but it's actually more technologically advanced then the Omnitrix.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/HotelTransylvaniaTheSeries'' episode "Hide and Shriek", Mavis discovers her old Demented Debbie doll who turns out to be very clingy, wants to have fun all the time, and [[TheCatCameBack is quite difficult to get rid of]]. The commercials for her show her abusing a werewolf girl, wanting to play with her even when the latter doesn't want to, and still pestering her after ''800 years'' because the doll's batteries last forever. When Mavis' Debbie kidnaps her friends, Mavis [[StartXToStopX buys another Debbie to chase the original away]].

* ''VideoGame/{{Medabots}}'' carry weapons that can damage the surrounding landscape, concrete and steel included. They're quite popular with the kids. Fortunately the live weapons have only appeared in video games. However this doesn't change the fact that the Medabots have self-healing capabilities and are VERY durable. If it weren't for the fact that their medals can be ejected with enough damage (or manually) these things could take over the world. At one point in the past there was a incident where Medabots went rogue and nearly destroyed the world. Oddly enough, Metabee has [[VitriolicBestBuds attacked his owner]] several times, with no lasting ill effects to the latter.
** Played even more straight with the Kilobots, because its creator and target audience are StopHavingFunGuys who want Meda-Battles to be {{CurbStompBattle}}s with them as the ones doing the stomping. As such, the ones closest to the "mook" scale of power are still a chore to deal with and the really nasty ones are virtual Weapons of Mass Destruction. One episode has a SuperPrototype Kilobot being accidentally released and going on a rampage that destroys a significant part of the city and the police [[OneManArmy just]] ''[[ImplacableMan cannot]]'' stop.
* ''Anime/{{Beyblade}}'': With some of the things Beyblades do to each other in the anime, they wouldn't be approved for kids in most real countries. The real ones are much less dangerous, but you should always make sure the parts are on ''tight''. It doesn't help that there are military helicopters in ''Metal Fusion'' designed to specifically launch beyblades as weapons.
** Beyblades specifically used as weapon is as old as the second arc of the first season of the original series, when it's revealed ''the whole Chinese team'' (and Rei, who hails from the same village) are ''trained'' to use them as weapons. This discovery comes right after a BruceLeeClone showed up with a nunchaku-mounted beyblade launcher. Then we get in Western Europe, where the top four bladers enter in official matches (and not official ones in the case of two of them) in ''[[UpToEleven full armour and include the launchers in functional weapons]]'' and by the final arc of season one it's almost expected that the Russian team ''[[UpToEleven tops that]]'' by having their beyblade launcher looking like firearms and, in one case, ''being used as such'' (thankfully it was a single-shot sniper rifle).

* Very minor example in ''WesternAnimation/{{Doc McStuffins}}'': the sword of an action figure in the show is shown to be sharp enough to rip through a plush toy when said plush is swung into the sword in error in the same episode. Given that plush fabric is usually pretty strong material, the sword couldn't have been made of plastic.
