Kaskey Kids Action Figures- review/giveaway Closed!

Kaskey Kids Action Toys
review/giveaway  Closed!
Do you wish your children played more toys using their imagination then just sitting in front of the TV or computer? Studies have shown that imaginary play helps children grow up to be more social and smarter.

Imagination is the ability to form a mental image of something that is not there. Starting around age two, children can understand the symbolic nature of one thing standing for another, such as a box for a boat and a towel for a sail. The abilities to think symbolically and abstractly are the basic building blocks of creativity and intelligence. Albert Einstein even said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge,” and he’s no slouch in either department!


Kids have been playing with action figures for years. Sports have been a part of children's lives forever. Kaskey Kids combine both of these interests to inspire countless hours of entertainment.
Creative play also helps children develop their social and emotional abilities. Kids will try on adult roles and test out ways of acting and being. In this way, they can develop their ‘what-if’ abilities, which is one way to strengthen their understanding of consequences. Children solidify their learning by not just taking things in passively, such as with screen time, but by mimicking and recreating what they have seen. They can also express themselves emotionally under the guise of being a character and children who playact are known to develop their ability to empathize. Creative play has also been linked to increased cooperation, problem-solving skills, leadership skills and behavioral control, such as using words to express oneself and waiting one’s turn.

Spending a lot of time in creative play also helps build cognitive skills. According to a National Public Radio report, “While... play might look a lot like time spent doing nothing much at all, it actually helps build a critical cognitive skill called executive function. Executive function has a number of elements, such as working memory and cognitive flexibility, but perhaps the most important is self-regulation - the ability for kids to control their emotions and behavior, resist impulses, and exert self-control and discipline. Executive function - and its self-regulation element - is important. Poor executive function is associated with high dropout rates, drug use and crime. In fact, good executive function is a better predictor of success in school than a child’s IQ.” (Creative Play Makes for Kids in Control, February 28, 2008)
Children control the action of these toys all by themselves.
Each action figure set is packed with value....up to 30 total pieces including two full teams, field, accessories and cool storage container that allow a child to recreate games and enjoy imaginary play for hours! Siblings, friends, parents and grand parents can all play along too!

Red and Blue teams face off. A fully adjustable scoreboard keeps the game as exciting and realistic as possible!

Set includes:
•26 2 1/2" players
•1 umpire
•1 fully adjustable realistic scoreboard
•28" x 28" washable felt field
•10" x 6" x 5" stackable
$24.99
These sport sets are the winner of the Oppenheim Gold Seal and the Creative Child Award.

These sets are currently being sold in over 2000 specialty toy stores and catalogs across the US. They retail for $24.99 and all 10 of the collegiate Football Guys retail at $28.99.
I would recommend anyone with children at least 3-8 to purchase one or more of these sets. I guarantee they will have lots of fun using their imagination and you will see a child learning to play calmly by his or her self.
