10 Toys That Proved We Just Wanted To Hurt Each Other

- Page 1


Let's face it: kids are jerks sometimes. As much as we like to think of them as happy little bundles of joy, the reality is that kids love few things quite as much as finding fun ways to hurt their friends. Of course, we were no different as kids, and these 10 toys prove it.

Nerf Guns


While these were supposed to be the "safe" way to have kids shoot each other (given the ammo is made of soft plastic darts), let's get real here, anything shot at a speed that can cover 70 ft in about 2 seconds is going to hurt. Especially if you take one in the eye or neck.

Missile-Shooting Action Figures


Now THIS was where the real warfare came in. Any time a Transformer or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle came with a gun of some kind that featured "firing action," you just knew that this was going to be the perfect toy to use to torment your little brother. That is, until mom got fed up and took it away.

Socker Boppers


I mean... punching someone in the face is still punching someone in the face, even if it's done with a giant inflatable cushion tied to your fist. I mean sure, you're less likely to have something broken by one of these, it still freaking hurts!



Okay, in some places these things are classified are legitimate weapons, and frankly, anyone who gets hit by a rock thrown by one of these could probably agree.

The toys just get crazier from here...

This was the one day a year that every kid would come to school with a lunch box full of candy, and whatever your mom packed you underneath it, which did not matter. If you were smart, you brought all the candy you got from the night before that you hated. Everyone traded off, and the best candy went to the highest


The Origin Of The Most Unusual Fad Of The 90s Proves It's Much More Than A Flash In The Pan

We all remember that one kid on the playground who was slapping around a stick as though it was the most impressive thing in the universe. Sure, it probably required a decent amount of skill, but the Devil Sticks fad died out fairly quickly and we all moved on to the next great craze. But the truth is, Devil Sticks aren't just a 90s thing. They actually started over a century before they became a craze on every playground in the country. The Origin Of Devil SticksIt's hard to know the exact origin of Devil Sticks, mostly because they go


10 Trends From The 90s We Would All Really Like To Forget

Listen, we can all reminisce about the 90s until we are blue in the face, but there were some fads that just were a little bit... well, bizarre, is the best way to put it. No decade can claim that they were free from the crazy flash fads that seemed to come and go before anyone could really understand what was going on, but the 90s sure did have some weird ones. How many do you remember? 1. Chain WalletsYou couldn't trust anyone back in the 90s. You had to make sure those things were secured properly into your pocket,
