My son loves his action figures - he's got a whole collection of superheroes and he knows them all by name. When I heard about the sports action figures by Kaskey Kids they sounded right up his alley. My husband and I are not the biggest sports fans, so our son hasn't been exposed to a lot of sports. What I love about these "Sports Guys" though is that allow for plenty of imaginative play. While video games and other special effects toys have their place, sometimes it's nice to get back to basics and have the child have full control over their play.
Kaskey Kids offers a number of different sports sets, including Football guys, College Football, Baseball Guys, Hockey Guys, and Soccer Guys and Girls. Each set comes in a convenient box that holds everything you need to play a "real" sports game. I got to choose a set for my son and the Canadian in me immediately chose the Hockey Guys. The set includes all the players, goals, referee, a puck, the rink and a nifty slick plastic mat that resembles the ice. My son was thrilled! The sets are recommended for ages three and up, but my two year old has been having a blast with this. Every morning it's the first thing he wants to play with. I also like the fact that this is something that will last a long time. As he gets older and understands more about the game, he'll have a new appreciation for it. And the fact that every time he plays with it, it will be a new game and different experience than the last time means that the possibilities are endless!
Hockey Guys retail for $24.99 and are available at Kaskey Kids along with all the other sets.
