Football season has begun!
Football Guys. The name is simple. But it does describe the product perfectly. In fact when we first got our Football Guys and opened them up, my son got quite excited and said "Mom, they're football guys." I had not told him what they were called before that. It's just what made sense to my 3 year old.
We were happy to try the Sports Guys action figures from Kaskey Kids. They carry Football Guys, College Football Guys, Hockey Guys, Baseball Guys, and Soccer Guys & Girls. A simple but effective toy is what they were aiming for. These toys lack the bells and whistles that other toy makers think are necessary. I find this to be the thing I love about the Football Guys.
My son doesn't need loud music or sounds. He doesn't need electronics either. What he does need is his imagination. Kaskey Kids knows that. That's exactly what this toy gives children. It gives them free play. Free play encourages imagination, creativity, and fosters learning.
My son is fascinated with football. I know he gets that from us. My husband and I love watching college and professional football. And we love to cheer on our favorite teams. Kaskey Kids also makes Football Guys in a College Football line. I wish I would have paid attention before we ordered ours, because living in Ohio we are huge Ohio State Buckeye fans. (If you look closely, you can see my son wearing his Ohio State t-shirt in the photos.) And one of the College Football Guys options is Ohio State. The others include The University of Michigan (our biggest rivals), The University of Georgia, Florida, Penn State, Tennessee, Alabama, Auburn, The University of Texas, The University of Illinois, and LSU.
Our Football Guys set included Red vs. Black, 26 2 " players, 1 referee, 2 goalposts, 24"x36" washable felt field, and a 10"x6"x5" stackable container with attached lid and handle. The players are in various poses for different football plays. It even includes and instruction and playbook that tells about the real game of football. It's very informative and complete with photos of the Football Guys set up in plays.
As a mom one of my favorite features is the container that holds all the little guys, plus the goal posts, and when folded right the field. I always love toys that can be easily picked up and put away. Plus you're keeping the whole set together. The container is reusable and light to carry, we've taken it out of the house several times already. And you have to appreciate that the felt playing field is washable too.
The Sports Guys sets make great gifts for the little sports lovers in your life. It's easy to please anyone with their variety of sports available. Or they also carry Mini Packs for someone who just wants a smaller gift/set to start with or add to their collection.
They are geared towards children ages 3-8.
