Toy War

When your son or daughter slips on a pair of big, green, foam Hulk hands, they believe that they really have gamma-powered strength. And when they play with plastic light sabers, they play as if losing a duel means losing a hand (because in the best Star Wars movies, it did).

Andrew McMurry made a short film that explores what goes through every kid’s head (and every dad’s head) while they’re playing with toys. From Nerf guns to Hulk hands to the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe, all sorts of toys here become the subject of imagination.

Enough words! Roll tape!
