So I am a total phobic when it comes to weapons in my house. I look to keep our territory as passive as possible, so I am loathe to welcome swords or guns into play time. I'll admit that they do creep in under the guise of a stick or twig but I try and encourage - protection rather than attack, and hey wouldn't that be a great fire house rather than laser thing? So it's no surprise that I got totally excited by the Original AJ Toy Boarders - a fresh take on those khaki little toy soldiers we all know so well. I love the fact that they promote action sports rather than violence and let any kid use their imagination in a much more positive way. They're on my Christmas list for sure.
