I know a lot of parents have a fondness for those little green army men toys of their youth (and the Toy Story franchise) but not everyone wants their kids playing around with guns. So I have to give props to Toyboarders which transformed the idea into a kinder, gentler, and more rad toy option.
The sets of 24 little 2″ tall men — and women and kids — can include skaters, snowboarders, or surfers. And these guys clearly know their stuff, considering actual skaters and boarders will recognize the 8 different poses. but whether your kid knows a tube ride from a nose ride, it almost doesn’t matter. For just $6 a pack, they’re awesome for party goodie bags or…dare I utter the words stocking stuffer in October?
I’d just like to say I’d love to see more women in the packs. Or maybe an all women pack? Judging from the number of Toyboarder fans sharing skater girl shots on Instagram, I’m not alone.
