I have absolutely NO maternal instinct towards children. I don’t want kids. No. All the no. Small fluffy animals receive all of my love but children – no. Despite that, the toy wooden swords made by the Funny Farm Toy Barn based around the swords of the Lord of the Rings characters are quite exceptional and would make wonderfully unique toys for a child. Even as an adult, I’d happily have a LOTR wooden sword. In a world where gender stereotypes should be rapidly broken down and eventually destroyed, a wooden sword would be a fantastic present for a little girl wanting to be like Merida, Eowyn, Arwen, Galadriel and wield a sword. I’ll create an army of little shieldmaidens !
