The trope name is a pun on ''Franchise/MyLittlePony'', and should not be confused with MyLittlePhony, nor with a {{Crossover}} between MLP and ''GirlsUndPanzer'' ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bvKejRe2rQ although somebody has probably written that fanfic]]). Or with [[Series/AlloAllo mein little tank]]. It's also not a PerversePuppet or the like; a My Little Panzer is inherently dangerous to use, but it doesn't have to be ''malicious'', or even living. Compare other failures to regulate safety in TV Land: NoOSHACompliance, NoProductSafetyStandards, HappyFunBall, SocialServicesDoesNotExist, ThereAreNoTherapists. Compare specific cases of toys as weapons: KillerYoyo and BattleTops. Not to be confused with [[WhereDoesHeGetAllThoseWonderfulToys wonderful toys]] (although those are often effectively the same thing).

Who says EvilIsNotAToy? Some fictional children's toys are so dangerous, they have no business being children's toys!

toys! Some clever (and/or crazy) minds may even use them to fight and kill people.

Added DiffLines:

* Subverted in the episode "Tag Sale, You're It" of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''. When Dr. Venture holds a yard sale, Henchman 21 almost cries upon seeing a ''real lightsaber'' for sale. Dr. Venture says it is a prototype, rejected by {{Creator/Kenner}} for being too costly and by the military for being a sword. 21 buys it immediately, and when an EscalatingBrawl breaks out he decides to use his new toy to face down Venture's bodyguard. The sounds and visuals are appropriately badass, but when a swing connects, the beam turns out to be harmless, and he flees in terror.

Added DiffLines:

* ''James May's Toy Stories'' often features this trope by its very premise. The aim is to revive interest or nostalgia for the classic toys James grew up with, by way of using them to accomplish something far beyond their original scope. By definition, it means doing things that the intended child market could not hope to achieve, and by extension, it's usually something that would be ridiculously dangerous for them to attempt. For example, one episode builds a working drawbridge in Liverpool out of nothing but Meccano pieces (punched metal beams and fasteners, similar to an American Erector Set). Playing with this toy ultimately takes a team of architects, a group of engineering students, construction equipment, and a safety harness for the ceremonial crossing.

* Subverted in ''WesternAnimation/BigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot'', where the consumer models of Rusty are perfectly harmless. Unless, the Legion Ex Machina hijacks their AI to do robot conquest bidding. Then proceed to retrofit them with the same nuclear power source as the original Rusty. At that point it is like the equivalent (yield) of several thousand tactical nukes or one strategic nuke.

Then proceed to retrofit them with Turns out Dr. Donovan just lowered the same nuclear power source as intelligence on them, but ''left all of the military hardware in'' and assumed that since the general public doesn't have access to the original Rusty. At Rusty's (effectively nuclear) battery, this wouldn't be a problem. One small retrofit later (which was simple enough that point it is like the equivalent (yield) Rustys themselves could do it with minimal guidance) and the Legion had a small army of several thousand flying tactical nukes or one strategic nuke.nukes.

** Other dangerous toys include: Chinpokomon (the toys themselves weren't dangerous, but they were pawns in a plot to brainwash kids into bombing Pearl Harbor), Wild Wacky Action Bike (the kid who tried to ride it in the commercial crashed into the underside of a truck), Alabama Man and Wife (teaches boys to be drunken, wife-beating trailer trash), and Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset (teaches girls to be like Paris Hilton), and a make-your-own Mr. Hankey play set, whose commercial was filmed in live action.

* ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' has some of Ed's toys, including an action figure of a small monster that acted as a flamethrower when a certain button was pressed. To the surprise of Edd when Ed was in a bad mood and they were using it in a puppet show.

* 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.
