'The Amazing Spiderman Web Shooter' was a favorite childhood toy

GenX kids had better toys.

I once shot my friend's mother in the eye with a web-slung Spiderman wrist dart. It had to be an accident because you couldn't aim these wrist mounted, weakly sprung dart pushers for anything. No one took the wrist launchers away.

An acceptable-by-current-parenting-standards version is nothing but a Silly-string can under your child's wrist.

I am so glad I lived through the 1970s and 1980s.
