About Manhattan Toy — Imaginations at Play!

(from their site)
Play is discovery and exploration, and joy, and growth, and learning, and so much more. And for us play is serious work. So when we bring play to life, we do it with a commitment to the finest in craftsmanship and creativity. All of our products, from the newest concepts to our time-tested classics, are innovatively designed to inspire imaginative play and delight our consumers large and small.
OriginalityFounded in 1979 by Francis Goldwyn (grandson of motion picture studio owner Sam Goldwyn), Manhattan Toy pioneered the use of non-traditional fabrics in toy design and introduced delightful new body styles in soft toys. Although Goldwyn is no longer involved in the ownership of Manhattan Toy, we remain true to his vision of marching to the beat of a different (toy) drum.

Our Personal Experience:
My boys were very excited when the Boysterous action figures arrived. They immediately opened them and explored them, figuring them out. They then opened up the Extreme Sports Zone and played with the figures for quite a while. They decided to make them even more fun they pulled out some of their own toys from their toybox and made a fun Extreme Sports World for them.
I appreciated the high quality of the figures. The boys play rough so I was worried about them ripping the limbs off or something else horrible like that, but the Boysterous figures withstood all of the rough play and came out just fine. They really are a wonderful travel toy as well. We had to go to the ball park for my older children's baseball game so my youngest asked to take the figures so he wouldn't be bored. We tossed them inside the Extreme Sports Zone and took them along. The other children(ages3-6) at the park LOVED them. They were all asking where we got them and discussing how cool they were. My youngest son was so proud of the new figures and shared them with another kid, they played with them for the entire baseball game!
The Boysterous figures sadly came home quite dirty from the park so we "gave them a bath". I just wiped them down with a warm washcloth and they were good to go. Super easy to clean! I am super impressed with the Boysterous products and would highly recommended them for your small boys! They would also make and excellent gift  you can get a figure and the Extreme Sports Zone for under $50!!!
