What instruments should not be used for classical music?

I have heard of people using children's toys to play classical music and while it's cute I think a lot of the composers would roll over in their graves if they heard it! For me personally the mood isn't the same and it isn't as soothing because some of the toys can squeak or clank a little out of place.

Are there any instruments you think should not be used for classical music? Or do you think it's anything goes as long as it's played well? Could you see yourself playing classical music using an instrument or any other device that maybe it's meant for music?
