I like your foam covered sword idea, thanks, i would just like to change the internal part of very light plastic instead of wood, he still waves it too hard.

One of the reasons I went with wood was because I was reading in Amazon reviews of commercial foam covered swords with PVC cores that the cores break.

If he waves it too hard, I have two recommendations:
1. Teach him not to. :-) That worked for our kids, but then our kids are exceptionally safety conscious.
2. Shorten the wooden core. This may require shortening the sword somewhat, too. If you have about a foot of pure foam at the end, this will help a lot.
