I'd like see how many rejected kids toys we can come up with.These toys can be real toys or ones that you make up. The reasons for being rejected can be form being to dangerous to just plan dumb. Please fallow the forums rules and have fun

    Do you mean rifle, or actually raffle? Because the second would be even worse

    From Real Life:
    I feel like the Cussing Elmo toy needs to be listed, since that actually happened, IIRC. Ditto for the old "My First Chemistry Sets" with the ingredients for things like mustard gas, and the old rock/mineral sets that contains samples of natural asbestos and uranium (among other things). Toddler's toys containing lead/cadmium (special mention for teething toys) as well. Ah, the good old days.

    From Not-So-Real Life (As far as I know):
    Baby's First Arson Kit (Matches, lighter, and lighter fuel included. Burning Material Sold Separate)
    Exploding Marbles Set (Real glass exterior with a new and improved Nitro Glycerin interior!)
    Junior Catapult (Up to 25lb Capacity!)
    My Little VooDoo Doll (Pins Included. Really Works!)

    I prefer science fiction to fantasy, and generally play in the former genre. Due to this, I generally expect the laws of physics to apply to games, and work from that perspective.

    Sanitation is the first thing that came to my mind too - any surface intended for internal use needs some pretty specific surfaces to avoid issues with bacteria, and that's before getting into cleaning requirements that these brooms almost certainly failed. Sepsis is not fun.

    While I tend to think that age ratings on various pieces of media tend to be too strict (to the point where I'm happy that the UK 12 rating* has been replaced with 12A in cinemas, to give parents more control over what's suitable), I have to agree here that the issue isn't with the game itself.

    Now, I have never played a GTA game, but I did love Saint's Row 2, and I've heard the series are very similar. The problem is that, like with many other video games, parents assume that all games are for children.

    I first played Dragon Age: Origins (rating 18) at 16, and it did me no harm, but this was an informed choice by the person that bought it for me. They knew that I liked that kind of game and decided that I was likely able to handle the content. Conversely my parents forbid me from seeing Alien until I was 18, because there is some disturbing stuff in there they thought I wasn't able to handle (the same with The Godfather and other films, their strategy was to wait until I was 18 and expressed interest).

    The problem with gangster sandbox games isn't that they're aimed at children. Unlike some 18 rated games they tend to have storylines aimed at adults that do ask questions. It's not that they're not adequately signposted. They're generally rated as 18s and have adult oriented advertising. It's that people disregard the signposting because their child wants to play the latest Grand Theft Auto.

    FWIW, I certainly don't think there's anything in SR2 that would make it bad to give to a 15 year old (depending on the exact 15 year old, there's some people in their twenties I wouldn't hand Prince of Egypt to), although I get that making it an 18 is safer and a parent always has the right to disregard the rating when buying for their kid, so in the long run it doesn't matter. Not even removing the pixelation would change my mind (my view on nudity is a bit more continental than some peoples, although I still get awkward around it in reality). Maybe the GTA games have even more disturbing stuff that merits the rating, but that's not the actual problem. The problem is that there are still many parents who think all games are for children, no matter if they're rated U, PG/8+, 12, 15, or 18. If a parent makes an informed decision that this 18 rated game is fine for their 13 year old, then that's fine. But the decisions many times aren't informed.

    Yes, I did occasionally ask my mum to buy me 18 rated games when I was 15-17, just like I occasionally watched a 15 rated rated film at 13-14. My mum was probably too accepting of that, but I was never asking for games like CoD and GTA (the only example I can remember is DA2). It's not caused me any harm, but if she'd done the same thing when I was 12 I could have had problems. I also read some adult books at that age, and let me tell you that Frankenstein had more problematic stuff in it than Dragon Age 2, and yet if I walked into a bookstore at 12 and tried to buy a copy of The Reality Dysfunction (a book with some REALLY disturbing imagery) nobody would bat an eye.

    This post is kind of messy, I guess my point is that compared to some stuff, GTA is not meant for children, does not try to hide that, and is adequately signposted. Therefore using it as an example of a bad kid's toy is inherently flawed, especially as it theoretically could be suitable for older children (although ones that would resent the term being applied to them). But a game that aimed itself at children but included the same stuff? A totally valid possibility that may or may not exist in reality (I don't think it does, but I could be proven wrong).

    * I'm going to be using the UK rating system, the important thing is that after U and PG everything is rated as the lowest age that can legally be admitted to a cinema screening, in 3 year increments.
    I prefer science fiction to fantasy, and generally play in the former genre. Due to this, I generally expect the laws of physics to apply to games, and work from that perspective.
