If there’s one thing we love its a good collectible set, add that with the kids fascination of blind bags and you’re onto a sure fire winner!
Series 1 of the Awesome Little Green Men feature over 100 new recruits for children to collect and trade. With blue and green infantries to collect, they include common infantrymen, rare special forces characters, vehicles and ultra rare generals.
Prices range from £5.99 for a blind box which comes with one Awesome Little Green Man and his dog tags up to the deluxe battle packs priced at £28.99, these include 8 figure (6 visible and 2 blind), 8 dog tags, 2 chain, and a collector’s poster
The joy of blind bags, or boxes in this case, are that you never know what you will get. Sometimes it may be a character you already have which is where the joy of trades comes into play. Swap with your friends and tick the characters you have collected from the dedicated Collectors poster (inside each box).
These are ideal pocket money toys and we were pleasantly surprised by how cute and substantial they are compared to other toys you buy in blind bags!
Luke loved that each character he got was different and it certainly looks like his little green army is winning over the blues – so far!
The dog tags are printed on one side with the Awesome Little Green Men logo and on the other side are all of the character details. Luke insisted on wearing all of his at once and judging by the smile on his face I think we may have created another little fan of these adorable military collectibles.
A couple of our favourite characters are Sgt. Major X-Ray (those glasses are too cute!) and Major Attack but with names like Captain Sensible, Major Boo Boo and Sgt Swag whats not to love!
Suitable from 6 years as there are some small parts on each character.
Available from all good toy stockists with prices from £5.99.
