One of life’s many disappointments is that my son has no interest in war toys. So, I did not get to relive my childhood vicariously, with green tanks assaulting lincoln-log forts and swarms of plastic green army men pushing the grey plastic Germans back all the way to their doomed last stand in front of the fireplace. Nope.
Hence I had no one to buy these incredibly cool toy gurkhas for.
Oscar Wilde said youth is wasted on the young. Toys are similarly, to a great extent, wasted on children.
(I recently read this awesome book about the real gurkhas, which I heartily recommend.)
