If you collected action figures as a kid, you likely had a troop of tiny green Army men. Camouflaged in olive drab and ready for combat, these little soldiers were a toy-box staple. If you find yourself missing these miniature fighters, you'll be happy to know that they're making a comeback as Rainbow Joes. This time around, however, it's not the bad guys they're battling—it's bad posture and boring color.
Designed by Dan Abramson—the brains behind Yoga Joes—these tiny men are on a mission to find inner peace. Each polychromatic battalion is made up of 9 practitioners striking yoga poses. Unlike classic Yoga Joes, each set features a cast of many colors, “with the end pieces in the same color, and the remaining 7 figures ordered spectrally across.” Line them up on their tiny bamboo floor, and watch a relaxing rainbow appear.
If you're looking forward to this color change, you're in good company. It seems that Joe himself has been scouting out a more exciting ensemble to replace his famous fatigues. “Underneath Yoga Joes’ green exterior, a multicolored symphony of light has been waiting to emerge,” the Yoga Joes website says. “And at last it is happening.”
