Action Figure Gifts
Ever since the G.I. Joe line of toys was released in the 1960s, action figures have become incredibly popular among young children and even teenagers. They were exciting, and kids could stage big battles between their favorite characters from cartoons and movies.
Even though kids today can play on tablets and computers, many of them still enjoy playing with action figures. One of the most popular lines of toys for younger kids is the Playskool Heroes Transformers Rescue Bots.
There are a few different ones, such as Heatwave and Chase. Like all Transformers, they go from being robots to vehicles. Because these toys are meant for younger children, they’re very easy to transform without any complicated process, so you won’t have to help your kid with it every time they want to change it.
Transformers toys aren’t just available for young kids, though. There are more advanced versions for older kids, up into their preteen years. These models are much more detailed and more complicated to transform from the robot mode into the vehicle more.
There are even display figures if you know someone who collects those kinds of things. One line of toys that’s become fairly popular for kids is the VTech Switch & Go Dinos. Much like Transformers, they go from being cars to beings, but instead of transforming into humanoid robots, they turn into dinosaur robots.
All of them have LCD screens that change depending on the mode they’re in, either showing a facial expression of the car driver or the eyes of the dinosaur. Kids will surely have these on their wish list this Christmas!
While they’re not exactly action figures, Hatchimals are one of the most popular figures kids will be asking for this Christmas. The great things are that each toy is a surprise until it hatches, so it really is a gift that keeps on giving.
How to figure out what action figures your kids like
Godzilla Action Figures – What Are Good Ideas for Younger Children?
Action figures are very popular and seem to come out all the time for various movies. Children, especially boys, love to use them for pretend play. Godzilla is a very well known monster from the movies and so you will find plenty of action figures out there that are from such movies. With 28 different Godzilla movies released though you will find there are many variations to the look of Godzilla out there.
Even though there hasn’t been a new Godzilla movie out for a while, most toy stores still carry a good supply of these action figures. You may want to order them online though if you want a particular look. In fact, the look of Godzilla action figures from Japan is quite different from what you can get in the United States. You can easily have those more unique models shipped to you.
Godzilla is well known for the various types of action in his movies. Therefore it is no surprise that so many of the newer Godzilla action figures can perform various movements. Some of them have built-in sounds that you can activate by pushing a button. Others are able to walk or to do various stunts so kids don’t even have to use their own imagination anymore. In fact, some children will be very bored with just a basic Godzilla action figure that doesn’t do very much.
Not all Godzilla action figures get played with though. Many of them are in the hands of collectors and they remain in their original packaging. Some of them are extremely rare and so they are extremely valuable. Others are easier to get your hands on but collectors and enthusiasts still want them. They may be hoping the will increase in value as more time goes by.
There is no shortage of Godzilla fans out there though and new ones continue to emerge all the time. When there are films on TV of Godzilla or a new movie comes out there is a segment of viewers that are new to the images of Godzilla. They will then begin to look for such action figures as well. Of course, there are also older fans that remember Godzilla from when they were a child and so they too search for fun action figures either to collect or to buy for their children.
