Manhattan Toy’s Boysterous Action Figure Line (Giveaway) ends 4/30

You know, having girls and a boy means that the “lines” between boy and girl toys are often very blurry in my house.  My girls love to play with cars and trucks and my son sleeps with baby dolls.  But truth be told, when it comes to HOW they play with toys, there is a difference with  the way my son plays with his toys and how my daughters play with theirs (and yes, age is a factor of that, but I do think their sex has a bit to do with it too!).

Manhattan Toy has brought a whole new kind of action figure onto the toy playing field, and to be perfectly honest?  I LOVE the entire line.  These are action figures of the best kind- real life kids, who are “boys” boys and who are, at the end of the day, boys…not superheros, not magicians- just all sport loving kids!  In all,(so far) there are  5 of the Boysterous Boys: Slope Shreddin Sean, Goalie Gavin, Halfpipe Pete, Slapshot Sam, and Touchdown Dylan are all new to the field, but I have a feeling (and great hope) that they’ll be around a very long time.  Each of the boys comes with an accessory that goes along with his name- and the accessory is magnetic, as are their hands and feet, so even a young 3 year old can play successfully with the Boysterous crew, and not worry about dropping things as he follows his imagination.  The figures are poseable so your little guy can have tons of fun making them bend this way and that way!  There’s also no batteries required…none to replace…and no battery operated parts to break.

These toys are built for rough and tumble play, too, which is so key.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we PLAY with toys in my family.  Toys are not for looking and admiring.  They are for playing.  What fun are toys that don’t work or fall apart?  None at all.  I think my son’s favorite part of these toys is that they are moveable- lots of the action figures meant for little guys don’t seem to actually “do” much and he wants them to DO things.  The Boysterous Boys definitely DO things- lots of them!

We received 2 Boysterous Boys (Gavin Goalie and  Slope Shreddin Sean) and and the Extreme Sports Zone- which, as if it wasn’t cool enough, also doubles as storage for the figures and accessories.  How cool?!  That’s one thing that really makes me excited about this product line- aside from genuine kids being the action figures- the play set IS the storage- and it zips shut.  No lost pieces.  No separation of the “guys” from the “bin” and no big or little sister cramping someone’s style and getting into his “cool guys” as he calls them!!
The Extreme Sports Zone is a dual sided play environment that’s also storage. Show off your skate park and snow boarding tricks on the half-pipe, or send your player down the field for a long pass. Features 3 in 1 sports field setting that combines amenities needed for football, soccer and hockey play use . Also includes a half-pipe and zip and fold sides with Velcro-like closures. All the settings for the sports you love in one easy to carry bin.

I’m really excited about the Boysterous Boys. I hope they stick around.  I think they will.  They are a bit pricier than most action figures (ARV $18.00) I’ve seen for the 3 year old crowd, but I know me and I know my readers and we’ll look to find sales…They are very well constructed and as I said above, made to last- so it may be worth paying a bit more up front for a better quality toy that can DO more with your child that will last them through a few years of play.  The ages recommended on these toys are 3-8 and I can definitely see several years of play with both the figures and the sports zone!

One of my readers will win one of the Boysterous Action Figures! (Company will send one of the 5)
