I am blessed to come from New England. We have incredible sports teams – the Celtics, the Patriots, the Bruins, and the Red Sox. We have get-togethers with our neighbors for games, no matter whether it is the regular season or the playoffs. Each time has their rivalry and it is exciting to watch them take each other on!
There has been a lack of sports figurines for young children until now. The Party Animal Inc. released a large line of sports figurines for children and sports collection enthusiasts last year that included 208 figurines in Series 1. Series 2 is due out in June 2011. These figurines are three inches tall and are officially licensed for NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, and over 50 colleges. I was lucky to be allowed to review six figurines from both Series 1 and Series 2, including the following:
- NEW Limited Edition Referee
- Bruins Slapper
- Red Sox Pitcher
- Celtics Playmaker
- Patriots Running Back
- Patriots Quarterback
Not only are they adorable, but they are so fun! In terms of movement, the heads of the figurines in Series 1 move. However, the arms of the Ref from Series 2 move as well. My kids liked this feature and my daughter thought that the future figurines being able to move their arms as well was definitely a bonus. I can easily see how kids and adult collectors would want to collect the whole series! My son, although very young, has already shown an affinity to sports and seems interested in using the figurines in his play. He took these sports figurines and fit them right into playing with his trains!
