'My son has a ‘weapons basket’ in his bedroom. I asked a psychologist if I should worry.'

When I was an eight-year-old, way back in another millennium, I loved nothing more than performing dance routines with my best mate, Katie, or playing Barbie dress-ups.

I was (I am not ashamed to say), a traditionally girly-girl with a crush on Scott Robinson from Neighbours and a collection of non-ironic hair scrunchies. I spent a lot of time in a peaceful, fantasy world of flower fairy tea parties and crafting shoe-box beds for my soft toy collection. I had zero interest in weapons or fighting of any sort, and I had no time at all for the likes of Transformers, He-Man, M.A.S.K or any other 1980s ‘battle-centric’ cartoon.

Fast forward to 2018 and I am mum to eight-year-old Toby, a boy who cannot get enough of the contemporary versions of those TV shows and movies. Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesSlugterraTransformers and the associated merchandise have been on a fairly constant rotation in our house for years now.
