Violent Toys for Kids - Surely There are Boundaries?

By Yvette Vignando - 12th February 2013

This was one of those segments where I was genuinely  shocked - a toy maker selling a toy for a young child to "play" at robbing a bank. MSN reports "The toy features a bank manager, armed shooter, gold bars and a cash machine. In case kids can’t envision how to use the pieces, photos accompanying the set show the robber pointing a gun at the manager and forcing a blonde woman to empty the machine. Way to get those young, creative minds flowing."

I wonder where this would end - what other violent crimes will toymakers design for children to 'play' with? I hope Playmobil changes their mind on this one - it's a totally abhorrent toy in my opinion.

We also talked about alcohol brands and children, and had a chat about David Campbell's son's toilet training. 

What do you think about the toy in this discussion?
