We all remember the little green plastic toy soldiers from our childhoods, there were always a few to be found in any toy box and I for one certainly wasted many a happy hour inventing story lines and playing out battles on the carpet at home. A new set of toy surfers from AJ’s Toy Boarders have recreated that magic, but this time round the set of plastic characters are a bunch of surfers, and I’ve come over all nostalgic and have an urge to set up a miniature wave park at home now!
The AJ’s Surf Series 1 comes as a set of 24 surfers in 8 different poses and retail at just $5.95 a bag. There are 3 different colour ways for the pieces – original green, slate grey and royal blue with the addition of a combo set which includes a mix of all three colours. The various characters range in size between 1.25″ and 1.75″ and are suitable for ages 3 and above. The 8 different surf poses are Drop In, Cruiser, Layback, Tube Ride, Nose Ride, Wahine, Pig Dog and Slash.
It is also worth mentioning that AJ’s Toy Boarders also offer a snowboard series as well as 2 skateboard sets. With so much violence and war in the world today, it is refreshing to see a toy allows kids to use their imaginations to create fun and embraces various board sports. You can see the full Toy Boarder range at the official website here and you can find a clever stop motion video of some of the toy skaters below. Let us know what you think of these imaginative toys and we would love to see a stop motion surf clip if any of you have the skills to put one together?
