1. I played with them in the early 70s and they killed me.
Not really.

5. I remember one kid's mom used the track instead of "the belt"
But that's more of a user problem than a product problem.

2. Mattel has been praised for its aggressive recall measures
When something is discovered to be wrong with one of their products, they're very quick to address it.

Check their website--any recall notices should be posted there.

6. Tastes like chicken
Loved them as a kid. A better gift would be LEGO Racers. They are the same size, but there is a lot more creativity play in them.

No better toy than LEGO. Seriously. :hi:
