Toy Soldiers – Bring out the Patriot in Every Child
There is a reason why children are inspired and like athletes, musicians and army men. It is because those people have all followed their dreams and have honor in what they do and are all in love with their jobs. It is for little boys that almost every toy store sells toy soldiers so that they can bring those men of honor home.
These small plastic figurines are sold, colored green, blue, gray or tan; they are all dressed in army fatigues and all carry modern day armaments. There is in fact a soldier for all purpose..
The biggest advantage that these toys have over others is that, they are extremely cheap and hence are disposable and do not hurt much if they do get lost. These little toy soldiers are mostly sold in buckets for single ones do not really cut a very good profit margin.
Manufacturing of these toy soldiers began in around the Second World War when soldiers were of the highest social standing and manufacturers made them to cash in on the patriotic spirit and to instill respect for the work that these brave compatriots do.
However not al toy soldiers were of those depicting the US Army. There were many other plastic figures of cowboys and Indians. Also, there were plastic figures of pirates and then there were plastic renditions of knights on horseback and other soldiers from medieval times. These were extremely popular playthings.
Most parents preferred to buy these army men instead of violent action figures and gruesome comic books because they provide the masculinity that boys want without inducing hostility in their minds. Also, these army men have their weapons molded on to them so the child will not lose them
