I thought this was funny and had to share. I was browsing on eBay for wooden toys and here's an auction called "<a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/10-Wooden-Hatchets-Great-Toy-for-Kids_W0QQitemZ190177786068QQihZ009QQcategoryZ1197QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem" target="_blank">Ten Wooden Hatches Great Toy for Kids</a>"....uhm, and I thought wooden toy guns were bad!<br><br><br>
PS. there's a slightly damaged <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/Childs-Wooden-Kitchen-Waldorf-kids-toys-stove-2-ND_W0QQitemZ270192241362QQihZ017QQcategoryZ1197QQcmdZViewItem" target="_blank">Willow wooden kitchen</a> up for auction too. I know a lot of you are lusting after those.

Those would actually be a pretty great toy for a kid who wants to "help" Daddy chop wood for the fireplace, pretend to clear land for planting etc.<br><br>
A hatchet is a tool first. Anything can become a weapon in the hands of the wrong person.

yeah it could be a cool usrful thing for homesteaders, or people on land, or wanting to be, but also kinda weird for just random people to have around for kids, lol. i think they look like they werent meant to be toys though according to the pics unless theyre just made to be decorative and umm... "useful"

Oh I didn't think of it that way. Guess that's what happens when you grow up in a big city <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> I don't think I've ever chopped or seen a person in real life chop wood with a hatchet. I see a hatchet I think "The Shinning".

DS has been chopping wood for the last two summers with his "ax" (an actual hatchet, he was 4 and then 5). He has done a GREAT job and it is amazing how much he is willing to work--- hours and hours.

My DD has a play hatchet (although it's plastic) that came in a firefighter dress-up set. I look at it and just see a play tool; it never occured to me that it might be objectionable <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
