While I don’t necessarily mind my 3 year old wearing princess dresses with his older sister an example of all things girlie, I also think some “boy toys” would be great too. In the toy world, toddler/young preschool boys are the most neglected group in my opinion. With plenty to play with 4+ it’s great to see a line specifically for the younger set. The Hero World™ Rescue Heroes® from Fisher Price fills this gap with Perry Trooper, Billy Blazes™, and Captain Cuffs action figures.
Though potty training is 85% complete, we used the action figures as “potty prizes” which worked as planned. With a low price point ($9.99) they also make great gift ideas too. Now while our daughter invents fantasy world with “her people” or mini-princesses, the little guy has his own “people” now too. I’ve used them as a springboard to talk about the role each plays in our society, since unlike many boys his age, our 3 year old is not yet obsessed with firefighters and the like. Although thanks to Hero World™ Rescue Heroes® …he’s getting there.
