Children have active imaginations and are also very tactile at the same time. This means that they like to use their creativity to pretend they are other people and in other places, and to have something tangible in their hands to bring those visions to life. One way you can help foster your child's imagination is by giving them action figures. We have a complete line of action figures from which you can choose at Every Day Low Prices, featuring many of your child's favorite characters from best-loved movies and TV shows.
Action Figure Specifications
Our action figures are generally ideal for children age 3 years and older. Some action figures have removable parts and accessories that are not safe for toddlers or babies, so be aware of that before you buy for little ones. In addition, some action figures have violent-themed backstories and may not be appropriate for the younger set.
Action figures range in size from 3.75 inches tall to 20 inches tall or more. The majority fall in the 6- to 12-inch tall range, which makes them easier to hold, stand and feel more lifelike. Most are fully bendable and poseable for active play, although some come attached to their own stands and are for display purposes only.
Many action figures come with accessories, usually some form of weapon. For example, some have removable hands or heads depending on what kind of action they are performing. It is also good to know which characters go well with other characters. Some superhero characters follow comic book, cartoon and movie themes and match well with other superhero characters on their team, and have foes that are specific to them. Buying in sets or adding additional characters from time to time makes for enriching playtime.
Types of Action Figures
Probably one of the most important factors when purchasing action figures is to know what type of action figure your child likes. Some of the most time-honored action figures available are those representing superheroes. Movies based on superheroes that do well at the box office spawn similar movies, TV shows and videos that kids gravitate to. Two examples are those featuring characters from the Marvel Universe and the DC Comics Universe. Some of these characters kids enjoy are Iron Man, Captain America and Deadpool from Marvel and Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman from DC. Other popular lines of action figures include Star Wars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jurassic Park, G.I. Joe and Transformers.
Choose the Correct Version
Action figures also often come in different versions, so you may want to quiz your child before buying to see which one is a favorite. For instance, Batman can appear more all-powerful, dark and mysterious, or animated depending on the version you choose. Or just take a chance and let happiness ensue regardless. Obviously, size is also a consideration. Think about choosing action figures that are the same size when they'll be played together as a set. In addition, many of our action figures have many different options from which to choose, such as different uniform styles representing different eras for the character. Choose those that are most appealing to your child's personality and interests or that follow a chosen theme.
Although action figures can be played with on their own, they become even more interesting when they are paired with accessories that work specifically with a certain character. For example, fans of the "Star Wars" movies have a plethora of options when it comes to action figures, with accessories like X-Wing fighters, landspeeders and others that enhance your child's level of play. Fans of the WWE can play with their favorite wrestler and stage their own wrestling matches as well, thanks to the wrestling rings and steel cages that are available, not to mention action figure-sized championship belts.
Do you want your action figure for daily playing or collecting? We have many special edition action figures, which are ideal for collectors who like to keep their action figures in a display case or on a shelf new in box. These types of action figures, especially if they remain unopened in their original box, can increase in value in later years, particularly if they are produced in limited runs. Many of these action figures have tie-ins to specific movies or TV shows, which also add to their overall value, especially to fans of those particular series. So, whether your child loves to play with action figures or the child within you loves to collect them, we have what you are seeking, all at low prices, every day, on everything.
