  • Why are you so worried?!

    I know why some parents think it's dangerous because of real world. But it is okay because first of all, it's just HARMLESS TOYS! Second of all, kids barely do anything bad due to war toys. The majority of things kids who played with war toys do is shoot finger guns which are totally harmless

  • Why is this such a big deal?

    I mean, i can understand if some parents will not allow kids to do this, but really?!It doesn't mean that it can make war o.K. In kids minds, so why are all of you guys worried?The world needs better more mature kids, and this helps support this.Im currently doing a project on should we teach kids about the holocaust, and my answer is the same for this: its fine, we just need to do this at a surtan age and make sure that they are mature enough to handle this.

  • I think it is ok to get toy guns for kids

    Why go crazy over a toy gun like a Nerf gun with foam darts not like you have to get them air soft or something that actually hurts like rubber band guns just harmless Nerf guns and water guns that can have kids having fun with guns, Thank You :)

  • It has been proven

    There are plenty of psychology studies that have demonstrated that there is no correlation between the type of toy and violent behaviour. Our generation has become so desensitized from war behaviour, war history, and war violence that it would be ridiculous to take away one of the only things that teaches our generation about how the world can be. If your kid wants to grow up to be a dr than you buy them one of those little tikes doctors kits.. What if they want to be a soldier? You're just not going to allow them to learn about war? One of the best ways to teach children is through play. I was taught as a kid that playing with toy guns was perfectly fine... There were rules about how I was supposed to treat it like a more serious toy, and I wasn't allowed to point it at anyone. If anything it was a good lesson on respect, not a way to teach me violence or subject me to being a violent human.

  • It it okay

    Taking away these toys may be like taking away their lives for some kids, and it would take a lot of time to get used to. In some countries, boys have to join a military school and these toys would help the, prepare for that. I think that it is okay for war toys to be bought by parents.

  • Absolutely NOT okay at all, teaches violence

    It is so upsetting to me that many parents let their kids play with war such as war toys, war video games, and watch war TV and films starting at especially very young ages. For a worst case example, there is this grotesquely popular anti-Star Trek sci-fi gaming franchise called Halo and despite this being rated M for mature for ages 17 and up. Sadly however, many parents let their kids play this ghastly deep space military game as very young ages like only 7 years old. Furthermore, Halo toys are rated for only ages 8 and up. Star Trek is a far better thing to show to children than Halo since it often teaches alternatives to violence. War Toys like G.I. Joe and War games like Halo teach that the best way to solve conflicts is always through violence and teaches boys how to hate and beat up on effeminate boys for example. The U.S> Army has used Halo X Box events to recruit youth to fight and die for the MIC.

  • No it's not OK at all

    This is not OK because it could encourage children to play with real guns. Or they could pick up a real gun and think it's fake and really hurt someone. And if they play with guns or weapon toys they might pretend to hurt someone and then think it's play if they actually DO hurt someone.

  • It could turn out badly.

    I think it would be bad because some kids are violently crazy and their parents wouldn't care at all.So I think that it is not OK to give kids fake guns or fake swords because they could grow up and could kill someone and then go to jail. So don't give little kids guns(even if they are fake).

  • Parents should not buy war toys.

    Parents should not buy war toys for their children because children can get toy guns mistaken with real guns. Plus little kids can bring toy guns to kindergarten and mistake them with real ones, pretend to shoot and they can shoot little kids with real ones and they will be dead.

  • Giving children war toys is lazy and irresponsible parenting

    The arguments that war toys help children to "let off steam", stimulates their imagination, and teach them to problem-solve are ridiculous and dangerous... there are healthy and ethical activities that allow children to use their energy, such as, riding bikes or skating, swimming, climbing trees, team sports, dancing, acting... these activities will also increase their spacial intelligence, improve balance and coordination, strengthen their bodies... want your child to learn problem solving solving? give them construction toys like meccano's "build and play" go on instructables website and find projects to build.. reading books, encouraging them to write their own stories, making art, learning to play music instruments, these are activities that will nurture their imagination as well as science experiments.. There is plenty of violence around, it's impossible to shield it but we can discuss issues around violence with our kids at appropriate times. WHY encourage more violence in your own home? War is not a biological human need, it's been scientifically proven. Teach yourselves and your kids about human rights and empathy.

  • Killing is not a game

    War toys teach that pretend-war is harmless and acceptable, and therefor that real war is, too. Parents who would not let their children "play" rape and sexual assault games (one hopes) turn a benevolent eye on preparing their children to kill or be killed. It hardly seems in line with the other things we try to teach children about good, healthy human behavior: violence is wrong. Might does not make right. Killing is wrong. Use your words, not your fists. War toys give children the idea that violence is sanctioned by the adults around them, as there is an industry making these toys, so "it must be okay". Children exposed to war, living under the threat of violence daily, are something to be taken seriously. Money spent on war toys would be far better spent if it were donated to organizations that help the victims of war and which promote world peace.

  • Current toys and video games are creating a more hostile play environment.

    While parents can purchase whatever toys they want for their children, I think a little forethought would be worthwhile to consider the kind of play that will ensue.

  • I don't think children should play with war toys, due to their violent nature.

    No, I don't think children should play with war toys, or any violent toy/video game, because the child could grow up thinking that it's alright to act the way they do in the games/with the toys, when it's not.
