the worst toy ever invented.

(via) "It's a what?" It's a Swing Wing! It's a new thing! Made by Transogram, "where the fun comes from!" Also: spinal cord damage! Have fun getting that ditty out of your head. Related: the violent-est toy ad ever. Related: x-mas evil thread.

The Swing Wing a toy introduced in 1965, similar to the Hula Hoop, was worn on the head and twirled by moving the neck and/or body in a back and forth motion.

It has been speculated that the toy was recalled due to injury suffered in the necks of children caused by the continual jerking motions required to use the toy

The last scene of the Swing Wingers atop a ridge, silhouetted against the sky -- could very well be an outtake from "The Seventh Seal." But in reality, the entire short was filmed by Robert Bresson in 1955, and the Bergman-esque shot was a heartfelt homage. I will be screening this at my next "Lost Masters" film festival.
