PARENTS thinking of making your kids home-made weapons take note.
Nunchaku are illegal in Queensland and even a rustic set made from cut lengths of a broom handle and chain could land you in court.
It was a lesson Dallas Kenneth James Wallace learnt the hard way after Bundaberg police found the nunchaku during a search of his home on December 6 last year.
Wallace said he made it for his kids to "muck around with” and didn't know they were illegal.
He was fined $200 in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court today.
