Which is how we came to possess four (4) battery operated, extendable, color changing light swords (aka light sabers).
They came in the mail today and so we opened up the package to great excitement and fanfare. Then the kids started playing with them. In the living room. With all the lights off. Yes, I know. Who buys SWORDS for their children, then hands them all one at once and says "here ya go, play with these in the dark"? Uh, we do, because apparently this is our first trip to the rodeo.
Hindsight being lit up with those color changing light swords, this didn't seem like the brightest of ideas (haha, see what I did there? I should get out more). Happily no one got chopped with a sword and when they were finally done (one at a time, in turn) showing us each of the four light sequences, they were calmly using them as torches (or flashlights for you Americans) to play hide and seek. It is not mine to question, I'll just thank my lucky light swords they weren't committing acts of violence upon one another with the toys that Dadam and I had sent to them.
