Different toys

I watched this child play with the machete pictured for about 10 minutes. Once I got over the urge to take the knife off him and give it back to his mum who was also looking on, I took this photo. It is quite common to see young children using a knife or playing with a knife. In our culture we would have a heart attack at the thought of somebody so young using something so dangerous but in the African culture it is quite normal.
