One of the joys of growing up Latino is getting to play with some of these awesome mercado toys that stride that border between fun and freakin’ deadly. Amirte?
This could also be called a bonker ’cause lots of kids give themselves coscorrones with them.
These were so much fun until you got whacked in the leg with one.
That’s a big name for these cute little tortuguitas that are a total choking hazard. The little legs break off easy and the head is hanging by a string. Not to mention how painful it was if you got your finger caught under the turtle’s head.
I’m not really sure how a slingshot ended up being sold as a jugete, but m’kay.
This might not seem all that dangerous, but it will put you in danger of having nightmares. Creepy much?
You made a ruckus and almost plucked an eye out with these things.
These balls bruised you up bad, but dang, they were so addictive.

You always had that one primo who thought it was funny to shoot at you.
These are just plain cruel because the more you freak out about having your finger stuck, the more stuck it is.
