I always liked sword type toys as a kid. Usually a yardstick or a long cardboard tube from wrapping paper. The biggest problem was dueling. It was never very satisfying. We would fight in mock slow motion that would slowly escalate up to frenzied flailing as one of us tried to actually “win”. Then the fight would abruptly stop as inevitably one of us would get poked in the eye with a tube or whacked on the knuckles with the edge of the yardstick.
