FBI Agent Playset Teaches Kids About Beatings And Restraints

It's funny -- when I was a kid there was a huge move away from realistic toy guns -- and playing "guns" in general. Now apparently the pendulum has swung back: you can buy your kid a 15-inch toy baton and handcuffs for playing "FBI".

Granted, in addition to the baton and cuffs, the playset also includes a FBI cap and ID card so the "persons of interest" (I'm assuming they're the "robbers" to the FBI's "cops") will know who's wailing on them with an extendable plastic stick, a cloth tac/flak vest -- presumably for when your lil' fed is ambushed by other kids with "guns".
