8 Sets Of Vintage Lawn Darts: Relive Your Childhood With This Game

You should probably share this:

Did you know that lawn darts were banned in America by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission in 1988 because they were so dangerous? While you might have fond memories of this classic game, the original lawn darts (or Jarts) usually had heavy metal spikes that landed many people in hospital before they were banned.

Luckily for those of us who want to recreate the fun lawn darts, the newer designs of lawn darts don’t have those metal spikes and instead use weighted or pointed plastic tips that are much less likely to cause damage.

If you aren’t familiar with lawn darts, think of it as a life-size version of darts mixed with horseshoes played on your lawn. The aim of the game is to see who can get the most darts into or closest to the plastic rings laid out on the grass. It’s simple, but you can make hours of fun during a summer afternoon.
