Children who grow up in military compounds may develop an interest in games related to the army. But they may not necessarily want toys, because they regularly see the real thing. But other kids have a fascination with soldiers who appear to them as brave and indestructible. Toys are a good way to enhance your child’s imagination, esteem, and sense of patriotism. A good example of kids army toys are miniature tanks.
A good place to start is the 4.5 inch toy tank. It looks very realistic, and has an immense amount of detail. The toy comes in three colours: jungle or woodland hide, desert storm hide, and mocha hide, which is ideal for bad weather and muddy conditions. The gun on the tanks can move up and down for shooting games, and the tank is self -propelling. It has a friction mechanism so that you pull the tank back a few inches then let it go, and it rolls forward, following your imaginary orders.
Little toys have a way of getting lost, so a toy with its own storage is a lifesaver. You can buy your child a ten-piece backpack set that has different military vehicles including tanks, trucks, and military trailers. The bag is strengthened with cardboard which can be taken out and used as a battlefield, in case the playing area lacks a appropriate surface for the toy wheels.
A far away control tank is the ultimate strength toy. They come with swivel BB guns that can fire pellets 25 metres away. The guns have about 40 pellets, each 6 mm wide, and they can be fired continuously to simulate machine-gun fire. The gun moves up and down, and can turn 320 degrees for realistic play. The tanks have caterpillar tracks, and can be moved forwards and backwards, fast and slow via automatic far away settings. The tanks have chargeable batteries, and charging for 15 minutes lets you play for up to an hour.
DIY tanks have to be assembled from separate pieces, and some already have to be painted. Some kits come with a toy soldier to make the completed toy more realistic. Models can come in plastic or metal, and are not advisable for children younger than three years, because they may swallow the form parts. The tanks come with accessories like guns and rope.
For older children and adult kids, collector’s items are ideal. Collectible tanks differ from other toys because they are modelled on real tanks used in actual wars, and have specific instead of generic designs. An example is the D-Day replica tank used in Normandy during World War II.
