Manhattan Toy: Boysterous Action Figures

With 3 young boys in the 3-7 age range, I find myself getting more and more frustrated with the toy selections on the market today.  We do not encourage or allow weapons play of any kind with our children and I am constantly frustrated by the myriad of toys today that are marketed to very young boys that contain guns, missiles, swords,  machetes, and other such "accessories".  Even classic toys, such as Legos (TM), are filled with them.  That's one of the reasons I was so excited to have my little guys try the Boysterous Action Figures by Manhattan Toy.  This exciting, innovative line of sports action figures is perfect for my fellas, all of whom love sports and physical activity of all types.  The Boysterous line includes 5 sports-themed action figures as well as an awesome activity field that doubles as a carrying case.


We received Boysterous Boy Goalie Gavin and Boysterous Boy Slope Shreddin' Sean.  Both figures are made of cloth but include bendable rods that run through the interior to allow for posing.  They also include magnetized hands and feet that allow them to "hold" and "kick" a number of different accessories.  It also allows each action figure to change between sports activities and share "equipment", which is a great feature.  Gavin comes with a magnetized soccer ball and Sean comes with a metal snowboard.  We also received the Extreme Sports Zone, which the boys love!  It allows them to switch activities from the soccer field to the skate park to the football field and more.  It also zips back together quickly to double as a handy carrying case...perfect for family outings, play dates, or just carting around the house!  Another thing that I can appreciate as a parent is Manhattan Toy's attempt to offer some level of diversity with this action figure line.  i was pleased to see the 5 Boysterous Boys offered in a number of hair colors and at least 2 skin tones, something I find is often overlooked by big toy manufacturers.  Please note that these products are not intended for children under 3 as they contain small parts that can be considered as choking hazards and magnets, which should never be mouthed in any way.

The best part about the Boysterous Boy Action Figures is that Manhattan Toy is generously  offering one lucky  Bullfrogs & Butterflies Baby reader a Boysterous Boy of their own!
