These days it can sometimes feel like parents take on a "helicopter" role for their children. They want their kids to be safe and sound. We assume that parents in the '70s wanted their kids to be safe too...but when you're presented with this evidence, it's a wonder that anyone made it to 1980.
We can empathize with people who look back on the '70s with rose-colored glasses. If you know someone who struggles with overwhelming nostalgia, an intervention may be in order.
1970 isn't the only dangerous decade! There have been dangerous toys since the dawn of time. Remember these '90s classics?
Punching your friends is frowned upon, but not if you do it with giant, inflatable fists.
