Playing With Weapons

They look cute and cuddly. But look again. This is a collection of bombs, missiles and mortars. Toy guns are as popular as ever, so why not take the next step with these toys of mass destruction? Although made from soft wool, the shapes and sizes are for real. The biggest is a stuffed replica of the nuke dropped on Hiroshima, which ironically was nicknamed ‘Little Boy’. Could the contradiction be any more obvious? Politicians play with their bombs like boys with their toys. When will the madness stop?
