Russian Roulette for Kids

kaba kick russian roulette for kidsResponding to a recent post on a teacher organizing a fight club in middle school, some CafeMom users had no problem with letting boys duke it out in a supervised, safe school setting.

Now I'm curious what moms think about Russian Roulette for kids. The game Kaba Kick has been available in Japan for a while. Surprise surprise it hasn't found its way across US borders yet.

That advertisement at left has to win some kind of WTF award. Terrified kid holding a pink gun hippo to his temple like he's seen the actors do in all those R-rated movies his parents let him watch. Yes, this "gadget" is shaped like a hippo instead of a weapon ... so that makes it okay, right?


The player points the "hippo" at his or her own head and pulls the trigger. Instead of bullets, a pair of feet kick out from the barrel. If the gun doesn’t fire, the player earns points.

One blogger who was as dumbfounded as I was who commented on the toy said he was just so glad this game exists because it's important that children learn to play Russian Roulette as early as possible. Oh, what ever is in the drinking water over there?
