Presenting Amazon’s Predator Drone Toy For Kids

Looking to instill your children with some patriotic values? That’s where the Maisto Fresh Metal Tailwinds U.S. Military Aircraft – Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) RQ-1 Predator comes in, for sale now via Amazon:

The RQ-1 Predator can serve in a reconnaissance role and fire two AGM-114 Hellfire missiles. The aircraft, in use since 1995, has seen combat over Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bosnia, Serbia, Iraq, and Yemen.

The customer reviews explain:

“Educationally, this toy can’t be beat – inculcating a predilection for indiscriminate, imperialist violence against non-combatants from oppressed and marginalized communities is precisely in accordance with truly “American values!”

“I’m purchasing one of these drones for my nephew as a visual aid. I’m training him that if he can use these drones to kill enough innocent people he’ll be named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year twice and win the Nobel Peace Prize someday.”

    Perhaps a brilliant little mind will hack Asimov’s 3 laws into the device and it will begin propagating the data amongst its peer drones thereby bringing the entire drone network to an idling standstill refusing to follow any order in conflict with the new programming directive.

  2. Ha! Those reviews show the American people aren’t as complacent as the elites want them, and us, to think.

    The number 1 product review for this on Amazon:
    By Rambone
    My son is very interested in joining the Imperial forces when he grows up. He says he’s not sure if he wants to help police the homeland or if he wants to invade foreign countries. So I thought a new Predator drone toy would be a nice gift for him. These drones are used both domestically and internationally, to spy on people and assassinate them at the Emperor’s discretion. He just loves flying his drone around our house, dropping Hellfire missiles on Scruffy, our dog. He kept saying that Scruffy was a terror suspect and needed to be taken out. I asked him if Scruffy should get a trial first, and he quoted Lindsay Graham, Imperial Senator: “Shut up Scruffy, you don’t get a trial!” I was so proud. I think I’ll buy him some video games that promote martial law for Christmas.

    • Hopefully, you are being totally facitious BuzzCoastin, or our country is really in trouble if people think like that! Really bad any parent thinking these toys (or war itself) any more appropriate for their sons any more than daughter. We keep extolling “virtue” over our self-destructive wars and weapons, targeting the violence towards innocent boys, then wonder why we have a shooting with a military grade weapon in a CT school. The weapon was the kid’s mothers, she taught him how to shoot, she was an idiotic pro-military nut case. Teach violence, learn violence. The mental instability starts with the marketing spin “protecting freedom and security” for against “terrorist”. Ironic mottos

      • How do you know the shooting was done with a military-grade weapon?
        (or, let’s say an “assault rifle” so there’s no quibbling over the term “military-grade”)

        (I ask this in all seriousness, because I am curious about how people construct and audit their knowledge and opinions. And it seems to me that we have conflicting reports on the simple question of “what gun(s) was or were used by Lanza?” and the populace goes with their own prejudices on deciding what to take for truth, at the end of the day.)

  4. The “toy” also comes with toy women and children so it can bomb them!

  5. Hard to believe we have people here psychotic enough to believe their could be something even remotely “patriotic” about these drones, in real life or represented via toys for little girls and boys. Wow, instill “patriotic” values? Goes to show how naive and media manipulated people can be, with no clue as to the direct correlation between these twisted “values” and the increased shootings across USA, all brought on directly by the negative influence of a pro-military culture and mindset. And boys do NOT belong in war or playing with drones any more than girls. You ought to be ashamed of yourself, BuzzCoiastin. Due to people like you, USA now ranks #88 in Global peace….war & weapons for toxic profits before the people.
