It seems like every year, there’s some new super hero team that hits the ‘waves on TV, then just as quickly fades away. However, there’s one team of evil, alien-fighting heroes that have been around for almost 20 years – the Power Rangers. Debuting way back in 1993, the Power Rangers have saved the planet countless numbers of times with thier Zords. Go, go Power Rangers! This holiday season, the Power Rangers can go from TV super heroes to holiday gifts your child will love.
Who’s Your Favorite Ranger?
Review by WiC Chick Christy, of A Living Homeschool (with some comments/edits by The WiC Project)
My 9 year old son was ecstatic when I told him he was going to help me do a review of the Power Rangers Samurai Plush toy. He loves all things ninja including Power Rangers, turtles, you name it. He couldn’t wait to open the box when we found it on the doorstep. He was even more excited to see that not only did he get to try the new plush toy, but that it was his favorite Ranger–the Red Ranger (also known as Jayden for those of you not “in the know.”)
While the box has an age recommendation of 4+, the reality is that a lot of older kids still love the Power Rangers and will have a lot of fun with these. My son thought the Power Rangers plush was fun to wrestle with and play with. The Power Rangers 18” Plush With Battle Sounds is a thicker and pillow-like plush, not soft and fuzzy like stuffed animals, making it a bit more durable for kid play. When done playing with the plush, if your child wants to use it as a pillow, make sure you turn off the battle sounds or the plush will start talking every time he/she tries to lie down on it. At 18″ tall, this plush is an ideal size for younger kids while still being fun to play with for the older (taller) kids too.
The Power Rangers Watch is a great stocking stuffer option for the kids. My son has been wanting one for a while now, so this watch was perfect. It was easy to put on and to take off and the digital face was easier to read than a traditional watch face. He liked the design, although he would have liked to see all 6 characters instead of only the three that were featured. Other kids might prefer this design because it may show their favorite Power Ranger. The simple push-button design makes it easier for kids to use the buttons and for the watch to be set. Just try not to accidentally hit any of the buttons, which may reset your watch.
Between the Power Rangers Plush and his brand new Power Rangers Watch toy, my son was in ninja warrior heaven! He wouldn’t put those things down for days.
If you would like to give cool Power Rangers gifts to a child you know, you can find a range of Power Rangers merchandise at Target, Toys R’ Us, and other retailers near you.
