How to survive childhood

by allthoughtswork

I remember playing with that elastic bubble plastic and, yes, it tasted like death. But I turned out fine. (left eye twitches violently)

An elementary school classmate had the Easy Bake Oven at her house. It churned out bland tasting “brownies” that baffled me: Why, if her mom had the real brownies-in-a-box right there in the kitchen cupboard, didn’t we all just spend a minute or two with an electric mixer and the middle rack of the oven to enjoy an authentic carb rush?

Worst and longest-running toy ever created that’s still injuring thousands to this day? Drum roll, please….

Slip-n-Slide.

No single concept has inspired so many idiots to engage in so much stupidity in so little time.

 

Well, maybe with the exception of lawn darts….
