Today's parents might have a reputation for being overprotective and helicopter-esque. But when you look at the insane toys older generations were allowed to play with, can you blame them?

From rogue Skip-Its to asbestos-containing rock collections, there's an insane amount of kids' toys that were not a great idea at all. A recent Reddit thread asked, "Older generations of Reddit: What toys did you have as a child that would be considered too dangerous to be given to a child today?" The answers prove that while today's kids might be soft, it's probably a good thing.

1. Get 'em started early.

We had these weird fake cigarettes that actually allowed you to blow smoke that was quite realistic. We freaked out a lot of adults with them. - Chew_Gum6839

2. Sounds... fun.

I had an incredibly heavy metal square looking robot that spit smoke it produced from burning oil. It smelled noxious and was heavy enough it could have easily been a murder weapon. - Grave-Diffin
