And for kids at that age, everything IS a toy.

Exactly! Amen! To a kid that age, there simply isn't any distinction. As I've said before in this thread, a kid isn't going to know any better. They're often going to mimic what is being done by their parents. And I keep going over in my mind how much worse that could have been with that fact in mind, say if he sees kids playing with toy guns and grabs his. An accident waiting to happen, no matter what.
