Ask some kids what they want to be when they grow up and they might say things like fireman, policeman or doctor. Not your kid. He proudly shouts, "PIRATE!" when given the chance. You may as well just roll with it and give him this Kids Curved Sword. In a few years, reality will sink in and he'll realize that piracy just isn't a reasonable career option. But until then, he'll have a few glorious years swinging this toy sword around, pretending to go on quests for lost treasure. Actually, you should probably get two, so you can join him on his swashbuckling adventures!
