Target for Tonight was a board game that was made in Sydney, Australia, in 1942.. Along with a cardboard ‘plane, it came with bomb-like darts. The board was placed on the floor, the player held their ‘plane over the target and then dropped the dart. Victory! Only collateral damage was possibly a dart in a toe.
A great way to stage a war. Wish me luck as you wave me goodbye.
While looking at a bottle of army figurines which I had just picked up from the toy counter, something rather disturbing happened.
A little girl, no more than three or four years old, appeared in the aisle brandishing a large roll of Christmas paper. Menacingly waving the roll backwards and forwards in front of her, she ran passed the Christmas decorations chanting, “Kill! Kill! Kill!”
So, ah … peace on earth and goodwill to all, I reckon.
