Kids love guns. Almost as much as adults do.
With the natural progression of toy quality, fake guns have become almost as convincing as the real ones. Which is a blessing for kids and a curse for the rest of society.
Over in Michigan, two children, aged eight and 10, used a toy gun to steal sweets and crisps from five different victims as they walked home from school.
A spokesperson from the local police said: "I can honestly say I cannot ever remember anything like this happening with such young suspects."
Cops are still on the hunt for the criminal pair and they could be charged with armed robbery.
