We had the old school LO people too. In fact I still have them. I let my toddler play with them now in fact. **Burns in flames.**
However, she loves them and are one of her most favorite toys so I don't have the heart to take them away.
Proper supervision and all that jazz.
We also had a toy cash register with chokeable coins.
We had an old school sled with sharp metal runners.
My brain should also be a rotted stastic according to the amount of tv my mom thought was acceptable for us to watch.
Otherwise, I grew up on a farm. We were left unattended outside for hours. My praents would be arrested now for the stuff they thought it was okay for us to do out there, muchless leave us alone. ;) We all lived. I still love them. :)
