I love this story. We had erector sets, chemistry sets, clackers,
Slinky’s and more!

Great topic! I remember of course, the Gilbert Chemistry Sets that had all manner of dangerous chemicals. You could probably blow up your house if not careful. Daisy air rifles with an open barrel you could stick in the dirt or gravel and actually fire them out as projectiles. Last would be the Mattel Vac U Form toys. In my case the set made cool car bodies you could mount on a battery operated chassis. The set had to get super hot to melt the plastic. Probably would not be allowed today because of burn and fire potential.

My brother had a "Tommy-7 Machine gun" that shot hard plastic bullets. Amazing that no one lost an eye!
