Batman Kid's Costume - Wings and Grappling Hook Don't Really Work

When I was a wee lad at the age of 4, I got a toy Batman utility belt. I tried to use the grappling hook to descend (yes not ascend) off the porch down to the pavement below. Needless to say - it didn't hold my 30lbs of weight and I fell about 10 feet getting pretty banged up. Now - 32 years later, I imagine myself buying this for Anya or Ewan. I probably will, but the wings alone would have resulted in a me trying to soar off the porch instead of merely using the grappling hook those many years ago. I love all these new toys, but you also need to make sure your kids understand they don't really work - IF that's at all possible. Maybe I won't tell them and the wings will work? Hmmmm....
