If you’re Christmas list includes children, you’ve no doubt run across some very strange toys — and some potentially dangerous ones, too. Following are 10 bad gift ideas for children, some of which fall into the “what were they thinking?” category.
1. The Avengers Gamma Green Smash Fists
W.A.T.C.H. lists these giant fists on its 2012 “10 Worst Toys” List, calling it a hazard for its potential for blunt impact injuries. The organization says the packaging contains no warnings or cautions. It is marketed to children ages three and up and toymaker Hasbro’s product description reads, “When you put these green hands of power on your own hands, it will be that much easier to imagine yourself smashing everything that gets in your way!”
If you’re promoting a set of giant hulk fists to children, it’s fair to assume they’ll be used for hitting.
