Just when you thought there was enough violence in the world, wooden building blocks of full-sized guns are made. Tomm Velthuis has created this building box called Ratata, an eleven-piece wood block set that becomes a full-sized machine gun when put together.

Although the box of wooden blocks looks innocent, when put together, the imagination of any child will embrace the acts of violence and aggression, even if it is just play.

Implications - While these may not be the ideal toys for young children, adults can re-visit their childhood by engaging in the construction of one of these guns. At the end of the day, nobody will get hurt from playing with this giant wooden gun as no wooden bullets are included. Stats for Aggressive Building Blocks Trending: Older & Mild
