Dangerous Toys of the Past

Had at least three toys with "dangerous" heating elements: Thingmaker, Vac-u-form, and a cotton-candy maker. Played with them for hours, unsupervised, never got burned. Don't need to add that you couldn't have any of those today.

Cotton-candy maker was cool. Came with colored sugars and paper cones to pick up the spun sugar. Then my older brother, "destroyer of things," decided to try using Jell-o instead of sugar. End of toy.
