Did any kid ever play with their "innocent" toys innocently?
None that I knew.

Well, maybe not girls. My daughter's toys get along swimmingly. All my toys fought constantly- both internal conflicts, and against other toy races/species/whatever.

Oh, the long, bloody struggle 'twixt the day-glo dinos and army men.

If that's the new 40K chaos defiler, I want one.

I don't know if my young grandson would be appalled by what's happened to Thomas the Tank Engine or if he'd want one of these for his own! grin

My cop buddy had several of the 1/6 scale swat figures that people had given him. When his daughter got into Barbie they ended up playing Barbie's crack house and did CQB entries leading frequently to Ken's arrest.

Snickies, that was AWESOME, even the old, groaner joke!

Thanks for sharing.

I think my friend's grandson may be old enough to appreciate, as he's a 'former Thomas fan', but we'll see.

Re-reading the thread suddenly reminded me of a tiny rocking horse on the cousin's farm, which I visited each summer in elementary school. Basically, a board with a silhouette head, and two rounded boards for rockers.

I remember using the thing as a viking-style boat.
