Most parents like to teach their children about love & peace, because war and ain’t cool for a fragile children’s brain. In China however, some parents believe the babies need some military education as well, just in case, with those Japanese and Americans sending boats into the China seas. Danger is awaiting! Smart Chinese toy factories have detected the new trend and started production of some beautiful stuff.
On pic the QX-7466, and electric powered chariot for children aged 3 to 6. Painted in camouflage, standing on off-road tires, equipped with multiple floodlights, and armed by two heavy guns and a rocket launcher. War was never such an easy win!
