The holiday season is upon us and if you are looking for gifts that encourage your kids to put those devices down, check out Playmates Toys. With toy lines such as Ben 10 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, they have brought popular characters to life to provide kids with unique play opportunities. You will also find other popular lines from Playmates Toys to accommodate all of the kiddos on your list.
Ben 10, a Cartoon Network series, follows 10-year-old Ben Tennyson as he discovers his newfound powers after finding a magical device – the Omnitrix. This device can transform him into 10 different aliens heroes, each with unique abilities that can help him fight off the villains trying to take over the world. Playmates Toys has teamed up with Cartoon Network making it possible for fans to connect with the animated characters through their new line of toys.
With the Deluxe Omnitrix, kids can take on the role of Ben 10 and transform into one of the aliens with just the turn and push of the dial. It features over 100 phrases and sounds along with motion-activation and lights for hours of action-packed play. With a Velcro strap, it can be adjusted to provide the perfect fit. It is recommended for ages 4 and up. The Omnitrix really encourages kids to use their imaginations. With 10 different aliens to choose from, it really opens a new world of role-playing possibilities. I know my boys love using it to recreate favorite scenes from the show. It is perfect for those little Ben 10 fans in your life.
With the Ben 10 Basic Action Figures and a little imagination, kids can recreate their favorite scenes from the series. There are 10 figures to collect in total, each one representing one of the aliens he transforms into. They are 5″ tall and highly detailed making it easily recognizable from the show. The action figures are also fully articulated for posing and they come with themed accessories. They are designed for ages 4 and up.
I received the Stinkfly and Dr. Amino action figures. Stinkfly is the smelliest of the group and he can shoot streams of nasty fluid at his enemies. This figure comes with a zipline and suction cups. Dr. Amino is an evil genius planning to use his huge brain to transform animals into mutated monsters in an attempt to take over the world. He comes with mutated goatadactyl.
Playmates Toys has also added to their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle line of toys.
With this , your little one can help clean up the city. As it rolls over the Micro Mutants, it sweeps them up and placing them into a holding cell for transport. Once the trash is cleaned up, kids can transform the vehicle into a playset. With multiple levels and rooms, it keeps kids engaged in hours of imaginative play. The set comes with three action figure that are fully articulated for endless action poses. You can pair the set with other 4.5″ TMNT figure and Micro Mutants for even more ways to play. It is recommended for ages 4 and up.
Playmates Toys is on point with this Micro Mutants Deluxe Sweeper Ops Vehicle Playset and the boys love it. It is loaded with features including a sweeper really works. As it rolls over the figures, it picks them right up and moves them from a conveyor belt to a little detention center right inside. You can even can use other sizes of TMNT action figures with the play set giving kids unlimited possibilities when it comes to imaginative play. The three figures that come with the sweeper are very small, but incredibly detailed. My boys have spent hours playing together with this toy and that doesn’t happen very often. The only downfall is that the playset comes without the stickers so you (or the kids) must apply them. The photo below shows what it looks like when taken out of the package.
