Yes. Why? Why not? My kids know the difference between toy and real. We have fun with them, especially out nerf guns wars.

I let my kids play with toy weapons. It depends on the game.

We play with light strike(laser guns), water guns, foam swords, foam axes, and foam bats, toys bow and arrows, and staffs/bo.

We play defend the house from zombies...This is so funny I'll have to post a video of this later. I end up being zombie food because I can't help but to laugh..yeah laugh so hard i fall to the ground.

We play knights of the round table.

We play army.

We play lord of the rings.

We play DC superheroes and villains.

We play Power Rangers too.

I believe its important to let them pretend and play. This gives my children a chance to play but also think on their to solve the issue at hand.

They have figured out some wonderfully amazing ways to slay a dragon, to slay orcs, they have found ways to save a kingdom's water supplied that was dammed up. They save the world before bedtime every day a new adventure.

Yes, its just play, my son doesn't have a violent bone in his body, he still likes playing with toy guns and swords because he knows they wont actually hurt someone. Cops and robbers is just another way of playing tag and letting him pretend he is something he doesn't normally get to experiance.

Nerf guns , yes. They are brightly colored and fun for all I don't but cap guns because my youngest wouldn't " get it" but he loves his older brother's " collection " of nerf guns and sword.
