Kaskey Kids Sports Action Figures: Review

Green and Black Football GuysSoccer GuysHOCKEY GUYS by Kaskey Kids

So by now, we all should be familiar with my struggle to wean Tater off his video game/ TV addiction. It really is so weird. When my nephews were little, they would lay in the floor for hours and line up all their hot wheels, or army men, or whatever, and just play. It's like he's missing that gene or something. I mean really, like 10 minutes, tops, and he's bored. But he could sit in front of that stupid TV all day long. So I keep finding these really great products that I think will help curb the habit lol. This is another one of those products. Let me introduce you to Kaskey Kids Sports Action Figures.

About Kaskey Kids: (from the site)
Kaskey KidsTM Purple Football Guys Mini Pack Action Figures
"Kaskey Kids was founded by Bruce and Christy Kaskey in 2001 with the purpose of creating simple sports action figures. 
 Alabama Football Guys

As a mother of four sports-loving children, Christy saw that her children and their friends were happiest and most enthusiastic when sports were involved. Playing in the park, in the backyard or at the beach kept everyone active and occupied, but when playtime was brought inside, none of the traditional toys held the Kaskey Kids' interest. 

 Ohio State Football Guys
Christy took a look back at her own childhood for some inspiration and could vividly remember her two brothers engaging in hours of imaginary play with simple action figures like Army Men, Super Heroes and Cowboys and Indians. After a few years with her house filling up with every bucket or bag of action figures, animals or cars, Christy realized that a simple box of sports action figures could be the key. 
 Georgia Football Guys

Following an exhaustive search and realizing that the perfect sports guys did not exist, Christy and Bruce went about designing and marketing a boxed set of sports action figures that their children and friends could be enthusiastic about. The main design goal was to keep their children's attention and encourage more creative and imaginary play.
 Tennessee Football Guys
The result is the line of toys we have today!
We sincerely believe that your children will enjoy playing with KaskeyKids as much as ours have."

What Mama Thinks:

You already know Mama thinks this is a great idea!  I love the fact that they provide open ended play for kiddos. And I really love the fact that they have College Football Guys! They don't have UK (blah), but it's okay.. They are still super cute! We received a pack of baseball guys to review. Tater & I really enjoyed them. We laid in the floor and probably played for around an hour. That is a record for him! Neither one of us really knows too much about baseball, but that's okay, we just made it up as we went along! He really enjoyed these little guys!

Kaskey Kids has a wide variety of sports action figures. You can choose from football guys, my personal favorite *College* Football Guys, Baseball Guys, Hockey Guys, and Soccer Guys & Girls. I would love to see them come out with college basketball guys. Now THAT would be a huge hit around here!
Kaskey Kid's website also has a Kid's Korner with games and fan photos. (Definitely check out the cute cakes moms have made using Kaskey Kids Sports Guys! TOOO Cute!) It also has tips on ways to play, and articles on the benefits of imaginary play for kids.
