Kaskey Action Figures Toy Sets Giveaway


Too many of my kids' toys require batteries, and little to no imagination. It always has bothered me that many of the "gotta have" toys of the moment are fun only while the batteries last, and/or the novelty of the battery-powered action wears off. Which is not very long in both cases.

I remember when I was growing up and just about everything I played with required only my imagination. Play-doh, Barbie Dolls, Hula Hoops, you know... those fun toys that you could spend hours playing, and each time made a different game out of them? Simple pleasures.

When I was asked to review the award-winning action figure toys for kids imaginary play from Kaskey Kids (or rather, when my munchkin boys were recruited for the task), I couldn't wait! My boys do not have army soldiers ... (one of my "things"...drives the hubby nuts)...but I really did want them to experience something similar in effect to that type of toy. The "Soccer Guys" set they received fits that void perfectly! Btw, the soccer set is also available with "Soccer Girls."

The Soccer Guys Set arrived in a container that moms will appreciate. Sturdy and roomy so all pieces fit in even when being packed in by small eager hands! The set itself contains --
  • 24 2" players
  • 1 referee
  • 2 goals
  • 1 2" plastic ball
  • 24" x 36" washable felt field
  • 10" x 6" x 5" stackable container with attached lid and handle
I love this toy! It is so easy for my kids to set up, and to pick up the pieces and put away. But what I love most is that they can use their imaginations and set up all kinds of scenarios. They control the figures and the ball, and can move the players around however they want. No batteries, no annoying noises, no breaking parts. Just simple fun and laughter.

About Kasey Kids:

"Kaskey Kids was founded by Bruce and Christy Kaskey in 2001 with the purpose of creating simple sports action figures.

As a mother of four sports-loving children, Christy saw that her children and their friends were happiest and most enthusiastic when sports were involved. Playing in the park, in the backyard or at the beach kept everyone active and occupied, but when playtime was brought inside, none of the traditional toys held the Kaskey Kids' interest.

Following an exhaustive search and realizing that the perfect sports guys did not exist, Christy and Bruce went about designing and marketing a boxed set of sports action figures that their children and friends could be enthusiastic about. The main design goal was to keep their children's attention and encourage more creative and imaginary play. The result is the line of toys we have today!"

Kasey Kids was the 2009 Mom's Best Award Winner. This award reflects real moms valued opinions and I think is an outstanding statement of the value of Kaskey Kids Action Toys. They also were honored with the Creative Child Magazine Preferred Choice Award in 2008.

There are several sports figures collections offered by Kaskey Kids: Football, Hockey, College Football, and Soccer (Guys and Girls available). The College Football sets offer choices of favorite college teams to choose from, which could make these a very cool collectible item as well.

I love these guys. My guys would love these guys too! We love all the choices but the hockey guys would be our pick. The boys' uncle loves hockey and you can't find very many hockey toys to play with.
