Receiving these Football Guys was perfect timing for my son who is really starting to enjoy watching football. When I first learned of this opportunity, I knew this would be a good fit for him. It has easily become one of his favorite toys to play with, alone or with others.
Think of these Football Guys as a modern football version of the the classic plastic Army Men figures. They promote great imaginary and creative play where the child controls the action. It is a simple, yet effective idea.
Kaskey Kids has other sports available including Soccer Guys, Hockey Guys, and Baseball Guys. I’d be interested in trying out the other sports like hockey and basketball.
Other things I can see these figures being used for:
Training tools for coaches
What Was Included
The 30-piece box set includes:
26 2″ plastic football players (2 teams; blue and red; individually wrapped)
2 Goal Posts
24″ x 36″ washable felt field
Kaskey Kids was also nice enough to include mystery packs and mini packs.
My 2 Cents
The quality and design detail of the figures was better than I thought it would be. My only complaint would be that they tend to fall over too easily, which can get frustrating. They have to be positioned just right or they will not stay upright, especially when on a rug or the included field.
All of the pieces can be stored nicely in the plastic carrying case. This case is both durable and convenient.
Although the felt football field is an ideal size for play, it is easily wrinkled and can be hard to flatten out.
Other suggestions for improvement:
Would have liked it to include some sort of mini football
Would have liked it to include a kicker
Can you make a Syracuse themed set? 🙂
