Jim Alfaro just wrote to us to tell us about Toy Boarders, essentially a mashed up version of plastic green army men and skateboarders he’s created. Like the Kidrobot breakdanders, these figurines are reminiscent of those iconic plastic toys that were popular in the 1970s and 1980s. Each of the eight riders represent real moves that are used by today’s riders like tail grab and ollie.
“My son and I came up with these this year and they are selling really well at specialty and skate shops,” Alfaro tells us. Yahoo even listed them as one of their 10 Great Skate Holiday Gifts Under $10 for Little Rippers. Too fun.
You get a 24 pack of the 8 different poses for $4.99. A great stocking stuffer idea, don’t you think?
