This week at Rocks in My Dryer, everyone is linking up to Works For Me Wednesday with their favorite kids toys - Toys Worth Buying. We have a few around here, but a recent favorite is the Star Wars Galactic Heroes line by Hasbro. These are action figures & playsets designed for little boy hands, aged 3-5, but also good for 2 year olds who aren't prone to putting stuff in their mouths. There are usually a few moving parts, and even those are made to snap back together if they get broken. They are made from either a soft plastic, or a hard rubber - I don't know these things, even though I have a chemistry degree. Regardless, they are rigid, but have a little give to them. Which is helpful when they're getting bounced off the 2 year old's head.
Last year we got my son a two-pack of figures, Darth Vader & Obi Wan, and they are still around. Although our puppy chewed Darth Vader's arm off. The two-packs are around $5 and can be found at Target, Walmart, Kmart, Amazon, Toys R Us, etc.
For his birthday this year we got him the X-wing Fighter, which comes with Princess Leia, R2D2, Luke Skywalker, and Biggs Darklighter. The wings move and you can put a figure in the cockpit. The cockpit cover comes off, but snaps back on easily without breaking pieces. It's made to breakaway, rather than just break.
We love these toys and will look for more in the future. Thanks, Hasbro.
