Baseball Guys is one of those toys that is great for the little sports fan in your life. Hand over the case and get out of the way – then watch the magic happen. In minutes kids are engaged in a baseball game all of their own creating. They’ll have the field spread, the players split up and the scoreboard ringing up runs! Younger children may ask for a little guidance on the rules of the game, but remember, with Baseball Guys they get to make up the rules! Follow MLB standards or create your own – the fun is up to them!
The set is made well, and each piece stores easily in the carry-along case. There are lots of little pieces, so you’ll want to keep an eye out to ensure they all find their way home. Otherwise – no concerns.
The case itself is certain to catch excited little eyes, and then when they open it up, watch the smile. The field, the pieces and the scoreboard are all very detailed, and will give your kids all the inspiration they need to start playing!
Well, this was a tough category for us – and here’s why: Baseball Guys includes all the pieces for creative fun, but if you have a child who struggles with creative play (or doesn’t care for sports) this set is going to be lost on them. And in today’s electronic world it can sometimes be tough to get kids excited about a game that lacks the bells and whistles. However, if you have a child who likes creative play, and likes baseball, the set definitely packs enough function!
In a blind survey we priced Baseball Guys between $15 and $20. With an actual retail price of just under $25, it is priced a bit higher than we would have liked. If your little one is sold on creative play and baseball, a few extra dollars might not be that hard to swallow.
Something about Baseball Guys just harkens back to toys of old. Toys that didn’t flash, didn’t buzz and didn’t blink, but left kids just as happy as if they did! We’ve seen toys that inspire creative play, and we’ve seen action figures before, but it has been quite some time since we’ve seen a toy like Baseball Guys that does both in such a classic way.
Overall, Baseball Guys from Kaskey Kids is a solid addition to the fun, imaginative figures kids just love. The set is absolutely complete, including everything you need to inspire the ultimate baseball game for your little one to create. As long as you can keep track of all the pieces, the set should last and last. Pricing is a tad on the high side, but if you have a child that loves baseball and loves using their imagination, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better toy!
