Action man toys are the perfect toy for little boys who like for dolls to beat each other up or if they want to break off a leg or arm. There are several types of action men that are appropriate for younger boys of toddler ages as well as boys who are about 11 or 12. The toys for toddlers have larger parts so they don’t get swallowed as easily as the smaller parts that are found on the toys for older boys. These also look more like cartoon characters. Action men for older boys have more detail. Examples include wrestlers, super heroes like Superman and Batman and military figures. Many of the action man toys come with guns or other weapons that some parents might not like. It is best if parents talk to their child about the right way to play with the toys and the wrong things to do with them. Some action men have accessories like tanks and motorcycles.
