BTN – Violent toys

This BTN was about toys and how they are too aggressive for children, here is what I learnt:

Lego was made in 1949 and started out with limited types of blocks but then started to expand. 30% of all Lego kits contain weapons, and 40% of Lego catalogue pages show some sort of violence. Lego says that their kits show conflict, fantasy, and construction and all of that is a big part of a child’s life and development.

I understand that some people think that Lego and other toys showing violence in the form of a toy, something that all kids grow up with, is making violence seem normal good. I also understand that if toys continue to show violence that kids could start becoming more aggressive and violent.

A question I have is if all the toys have always been like this?
