Well, I think there is a reason for the plastic! Toy soldiers (game we all played as kids) are plastic..

If it only the copy was: This is not a children game. that would be better but it would still suck!

I like it. The message is very thought provoking... however the copy is a little clunky right now.

Nice. The lighting could have been more realistic for the 3d/photoshop work though.

Nice visual, but what is the relevance? Someone above suggested that it is because children are involved in the war in Somalia, which is an interesting connection, but I don't get that connection from the ad.

It works for me - nice!

The copy should have read: In the eyes of a somali child, war is barely a game.
The copywriter missed a comma after child; and therefore the confusion.

Toy soldiers = childs play
Soldiers = war

Why some questions the use of plastic toy soldiers? It's there and it's clear.
