Really well-made needle/gimmick fangame, with some really creative gimmicks. The catch here is that the gimmicks introduced in each stage can either help you or ruin your attempt (Except for Stage 3, whose 'gimmick' consists of moving sawblades that just kill you anyway, and the last stage, which doesn't feature any new gimmick), depending on the situation, so you need to carefully analyze the screen to see where is the gimmick's effect necessary and where would it just ruin your attempt (Hence the name 'Dangerous Toys', I guess, since these gimmicks are helpful, but can do more harm than good in some situations). The gimmicks from the previous stages also make cameos on the later stages to make more complex puzzles. Nice visuals, nice musics, somewhat annoying death sound.
It's an exemplary fangame, for sure. Its gimmicks are a nice display of creativity and each save is designed in order to make the most use of them. Would definitely recommend.

WetWookie's aesthetic is totally unique to themselves, combining the odd with the cute in what comes out to be a really cool atmosphere and look to their games. I Wanna Play with Dangerous Toys is my first real foray into the wacky world of WetWookie's brain, and it was a journey I was personally not the hugest fan of (relative to others), but I still enjoyed myself.

The real power of this game comes in through two things: visuals and gimmicks. The gimmicks are all quite interesting and well implemented, and the visuals are, as I said before, totally unique and make what would be a fairly by-the-numbers game for me into something more. Don't let my placing such importance on the visuals fool you into believing the gimmicks and platforming are no good, however. Despite my relative lack of excitement for them, I will fully admit that the game is very well made from all angles. The glass gimmick I found to be really neat, although I wasn't really into the game until the final two stages with the warp gimmicks.

I think the biggest issue I take with Play with Dangerous Toys is that each stage was a bit too short to really flesh out each idea. This game took around 24 minutes of my life, and while those were minutes well spent, I feel as if they were also minutes spent merely splashing around in a puddle. I'd like the puddle to be much vaster, as the water itself feels excellent, but there's just not an ocean to be found here despite my want for it. Some games make the half-hour length work (I Wanna Follow It from Nogard is a perfect example), but I don't think this one did.

Nonetheless, I would certainly recommend giving this one a go, and I certainly have high hopes for the sequel.

Great game with an original and well-done concept. Every stage has a gimmick that can either help or kill you depending of the situation and how you interact with them. My favorite was the teleporters yoou have to either take or avoid but I liked every gimmicks in the game.
The game is a bit short and on the easier side but it's a very enjoyable experience, I would recommend it for everyone.

I enjoyed what Dangerous Toys had to offer. Some gimmicks are original and interesting, but don't make the game more difficult than it needs to be. The tiles we alright, and the little things like the background with the small insects were neat. Shaders definitely made the game. Albeit somewhat shorter than most, it makes it up in character. Solid game overall.

EDIT: drop got nerfed. thanks.
Moderately challenging and very fun gimmick needle with good sprites, good music, and fun gimmicks. I would rate this higher but I'm very irritated about one specific thing. In the saw introduction stage, there is a drop at the end of a screen. This drop is pretty precise and in my opinion is a bit too precise. At least for me, I spent 10 minutes attempting the screen and dying on the drop, 3 minutes in jtool attempting just the drop before I actually got it, then 5 more minutes before actually succeeding and beating the screen. That's ridiculous and I was around 2 deaths away from deleting the game and missing out on the rest of it because that one jump pissed me off. Then i proceeded to first try the next screen. Would be higher if that jump got nerfed or removed. Still a good game, and it's worth a shot.
