Dangerous Toys is the debut album by Texas hard rock band Dangerous Toys, released in 1989. It includes the singles "Teas'n Pleas'n" and "Scared," the former covered by Shadows Fall on Fallout from the War, the latter a tribute to Alice Cooper.

Although second guitarist Danny Aaron is pictured on the album's back cover and credited for playing, he does not play on the album. Before the album's recording, Trembley left the band, leaving Scott Dalhover their only guitarist. All guitars on the album are played by Dalhover.
