It's funny, when I was a kid there was a huge move away from realistic toy guns — and playing "guns" in general. Now apparently the pendulum has swung back: you can buy your kid a 15-plus-inch toy baton and handcuffs for playing "FBI."
Granted, in addition to the baton and cuffs, the playset also includes a FBI cap and ID card so the "persons of interest" (I'm assuming they're the "robbers" to the FBI's "cops") will know who's wailing on them with an extendable plastic stick, a cloth tac/flak vest — presumably for when your lil' fed is ambushed by other kids with "guns."
