  • Creepy toys throughout the ages

    The toy guillotine !





    This was very famous in the closing years of the French Revolution:

    Between 1793-1794 children could buy a toy guillotine. These were HOT! On it was a aristocrat who lost his head when the blade came down.

    "Jean, leave mommy and daddy alone, go play with your guillotine !!!!"

    Don't be surpised, we are much worse nowdays with blood splattering from the screen and all the possibilities of killing on PC games !!!

                  Board game "Capital Punishment" (1981)



                  "Players each control four criminals and win by putting all four in prison, on Death Row, or in the electric chair. You can use "liberal" cards to free other players' criminals -- hoping that they will commit violent crimes"

                  Just plain tasteless

                  How do they get on the shelves???
