China’s new toothpick crossbow trend has become a nightmare to police and parents and its worse than what you can imagine.

Forget fidget spinners. China has a much more dangerous toy fad driving adults crazy. Police in three Chinese provinces is raiding toy shops to seize miniature Toothpick Crossbow.

Parents have taken to social media to express their concerns as they fear the Crossbow can be loaded with sharp objects and cause real harm.
                       
“This is not a toy, but a mini weapon of destruction,” Yan Yan, a mother commented on Weibo, China’s answer to Twitter.

Despite its tiny size, a toothpick launched by the crossbow is powerful enough to pierce an aluminium can from 20 to 66 feet, according to toy packaging shown in a video by China’s state broadcaster CCTV.
It can cause even more damage if loaded with harder ammunition like needles.

Handheld crossbows that can fire out needles and nails are the latest must-have toy in China but anxious parents want them banned.

Easy access

What is more alarming is that a toothpick crossbow is available for just $1. It was easily available in china’s most popular e-commerce websites like jd.com. But they have removed the product from their listing after receiving a request from the government.
