retroCRUSH: The barely legal pleasure palace: “One of the great things about toys from a while back was that they were made with one thing in mind, playability. Sure, they may have had lead paint, or would blow up in a kid’s face, but they sure were fun. Once the Consumer Products Safety Commission got their mitts on everything, it all went downhill. Toy guns were spray-painted orange, and the sharp edges of everything have been rounded down to safe boring nubs. ”
