Military Toys

Since the time of cavemen children, especially boys, have been acting out some kind of battle scene with military toys, plastic or prehistoric. Try to imagine it: One group of boys throwing invisible(or real!) rocks and clubs at another group of pre-teen invaders. Even then, boys used some toys to act out their warring fantasies. Think about how long cave boys and girls could pretend to be battling groups of plain old dinosaurs and wooly mammoths. It would be only a matter of time before those cave kids trade their invisible claws in for play stone mallets and swords.

How to Play With Army Toys?

 Battleship with Army Toys

Think of games like battleship or risk.  All you need is a dice to bring more organization to gameplay. The person with the highest roll wins. This will limit the ear-splitting amount of bickering children tend to have about their opponent playing unfairly. Logic will inadvertently be taught as children learn that it takes more than a bullet to blow up a tank. If you’re playing Battleship have each child make a grid.  Then place your vehicles on the grid and use the same rules as Battleship.

Risk with Army Action Figures

Speaking of rolling the dice, Risk is also an excellent game for children to emulate with military toys. This will teach them strategy and world geography at the same time! Get a big map of the world, as in Risk.  From there all you need is 2 dice and you’re ready to roll! 

What game you encourage your child to play when it comes to military toys is entirely up to you. The best thing you can do besides encouraging strategy-involved games is to make sure your kids have the best military toys on the market.  If you don’t have a clue where to start when it comes to military toys look no further.  That’s probably why you’re reading this in the first place.  And with good reason! Let’s take a look at our different selections of military toys, accessories, and costumes.

Army Costume Accessories

The pillows turn into land mines, the sofas into barracks, and the kitchen island into an anti-aircraft tank. When your little soldier dons play camo and plastic pistol he might start speaking in the battle cry tongues of any weathered warrior. Army costumes have great importance in setting the scene for the imagination.  These costumes will not only facilitate imagination but also develop a child’s role-playing skills. Later on in life, this could have great importance for presentation or even acting skills! We offer more than a couple of army costume sets to expand a child’s play possibilities. And hopefully, facilitate the development of skills they will utilize later in life.

First up, we have our army costume accessories. Playing with army toy soldiers is great fun but can leave some mini John Wicks out there wanting more.  If your kids start throwing toy soldiers at each other(or you!) it might be a sign of boredom. And it also might be possible to take more of a proactive action figure approach.  We offer three different kinds of army costumes, each with its own unique camo color scheme and accessories.  The sets range from a 12-piece set that comes with two toy army guns to a full-on camo outfit.

What are the best kids Christmas toys to buy?

After suiting up and running around using pillows for cover your little one will probably be exhausted.  Time to sit down and pull out the army figures! Now that we’ve answered some of the outfit-related questions, let’s look at the figurines.  These are the main show! The army base bread and napalm butter. There’s such a wide array of military toys out there that your head is most likely drowning in combat camo.  We have just about any type of military toy you can imagine. From bases to an army helicopter toy to plastic army men toys to trains, we have a wide selection. Once you visit our online shop you will most likely ask yourself ‘What are the best military toys to buy?’ Worry not! We know Christmas time is stressful enough. One additional question can cause one extra headache.  Save your Tylenol and we’ll go through the different military toys below. We’ll help you find the plastic kind of mini arsenal perfect for your little Rambo.

Military toy bases are a great way to elevate your child’s playtime.  Elevate the cognitive possibilities and their enjoyment at the same time. With more military toy pieces a child will be able to build more complex gameplay. And in building that complex gameplay they also build their critical thinking tools at the same time! We offer three options for military toy base sets to choose from.  All three of them have an army toy helicopter and other various combat vehicles such as army tank toys.  These bases are sure to expand the field of your child’s imagination!

Helicopter Toy for Happy Pilots

Toy Military Vehicles

The military remote control vehicle set comes with a remote control military car and 3 army action figures.

However, they also want army action figures at the same time.  Instead of buying a bunch of toys that your kids will have to spread their attention out for, check out our 2-in-1!  Our Die-cast Military Army Mini Vehicle Toy Sets come with 9 and 12 different army vehicles that fit in one carrier truck.

To get them out of a real driver’s seat check out our various military toy sets. Each set is unique to the kind of vehicle offered. Say they go mad about anything boat related.

Maybe they do not suffer from boat crazy but train crazy. Your child’s room used to be plastered with the familiar blue of Thomas, the world’s happiest train.
