The Police State is Fun, Kids!

I saw this on the shelf at a local Dollar General Store and I must say that I find the making of children’s toys such as these to be highly questionable.
When I saw this I immediately heard the words to the perfect advertisement: “Looking to indoctrinate your kids to Authoritarianism, War, and the rising Police State?… These toys are for you!”
Who would even think to make such toys for children age 3 and up?
A European company called Best-Lock Construction Toys … makers of other fun stuff for your kids like these:
—- Not to mention, all of their great Military themed toys! ——
It all just seems to scream “The Police State is Fun, Kids!” … wouldn’t ya say?
A line from the Company History page: “Unlike our competitors, Best-Lock feature a line of military construction vehicles and in fact has become the number one toy license of the US Army.”
Oh, really? Imagine that. Why am I not surprised?
They are also responsible for other items that may raise your eyebrow, like this one:
I can hear the closing line of the commercial: “Best-Lock Toys, making playtime more serious than ever!”
