Toys Spotted in Safeway: Better to be a Pirate or Police?

Being a pirate you get a knife and a hook as weapons, a telescope for surveillance and some gold doubloons! They give you money right out of the box! Exciting! Oh, the eye patch can be used for panhandling.

As a police officer you get a whistle, wakie takie, flashlight, handcuffs, id, oh and sunglasses (that's cool). Looks more like a security guard pack. No weapons, and you can only call people to aid you. No money either. Boring.

Looks like it's more fun to be a pirate.

What kind of message is being sent to kids these days?
