    Y'know,apparently in the 1950s the Human species hadn't quite grasped the concept of Mutual Assured Destruction because how else would you explain people gathering to throw Atom Bomb Detonation Viewing Parties in Las Vegas?




    Enjoy the cancer!

    Unsurprisingly,this disregard of Basic Common Sense spread to the toy making industry and everybody wanted to cash the new Atomic Fever. Because,hey!,mass destruction and radiactive fallout is FUN!













    But let's not stop there,let's have kids build their own 3-Mile Islands in their bedrooms!

    Thankfully Rock n' Roll and the Sexual Revolution came along and we learned to stop worrying about the damn Bomb...or did we?

      Freaking awesome toys. No worst than video games that allow you to go on a shooting rampage.

        Indeed. Slaughtering innocent folks may not be a new concept for toys and and games, but it has certainly gotten more graphic and close to reality.
