Are you up to speed with the latest new Power Ranger Toys? And what to buy and what not to buy for your kid who simply loves power rangers!
Here in this review of power ranger toys, we have selected different types of action figures and include all the action heroes from the movies and power ranger series.
Considerations When Choosing Power Rangers Toys
When choosing Power Rangers gifts there are some things you might want to consider.
First, consider who the toy is intended for. If it is for children, be sure to check the age range on the product. Many action figures have smaller parts (guns, attachments, swords, etc.) that can easily be swallowed by infants and young children. It’s important to get the right toy for the right child. Power Rangers action figures with small parts are not intended for very young children.
Some teenagers might be too old for Power Rangers gadgets. It depends on your child’s friends and culture. Make sure you do not buy Power Rangers playthings for children that have grown out of them. They could get bullied or teased at school as Power Rangers games are often perceived by teenagers to be for pre-teens.
Also make sure that for children you buy Power Rangers toys that are made by the original creator Bandai or licensed by the new owners, Hasbro. This is because there are many copies of Power Rangers items are created from inferior plastic that could be toxic to children if they bite or play with the toys using their teeth.

Overall Best Buy
It seems that the overall best purchase from all of the Power Rangers toys is the set of 5 collectible 6.5 inch figures. AS they are based on the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series, they offer the best value for collectors. Additionally, because they can be posed with 21 points of articulation, it is very easy to recreate any scene or montage from the movies or TV shows with the action figures.
In addition to the above, the action figures come in collectible, legacy boxes. This means that if you are one of those collectors who never wants to take them out of the packaging (because you recognize the value that they have this way) then you can keep them in permanent 100% mint condition until you are ready to sell them at a later date.
What are the Different Types of Power Ranger Toys?
The most well-known of the power rangers stuff is, of course, the action figures. These are the oldest and go back to the early 1990s when Bandai and Fox Kids came out with the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series. The action figures came into a highly competitive market with other toys such as Star Wars, He-Man and GI-Joe, but they have held their own ever since and have become a much-beloved franchise for children as well as adult collectors.
There are not only action figures but also larger Megazords as well as many of the villains of the TV series, so your child can recreate the many battles in the TV series and movies. In addition to action figures, there are also blasters and ninja stars and other life size plastic weapons that have lights and sounds, so your children can play fight with each other using the Power Rangers Weapons.
What are the Benefits of Playing with Action Figures?
One of the biggest benefits of playing with action figures for children is to develop their imagination. Children often begin to play by imitation, so using action figures they can recreate scenes from their favorite TV shows and movies. This helps them with their memory as well as their role-playing ability, as they will often have to improvise with their siblings or friends, who are also playing with the action figures and recreating scenes.
There are many other added skills that can be developed when children play with action figures, such as team work and cooperation. If they have to share the figures with the other kids, they will ‘act out’ the role of one or more of the action figures while the other kids use different toys. So one kid might play the good guys and another the bad guys, etc.
At What Age Will My Child Enjoy These Toys?
The age at which your child will enjoy Power Rangers toys depends on the type of toy. Action figures tend to be the most resilient, as they can be enjoyed by younger children as well as pre-teen and even some teenagers. For very young children, avoid the toys that have small parts or that are easy to disassemble.
Young children might also enjoy the electronic life size plastic weapons that come in the Power Rangers toy range, such as ninja stars, power swords, axes, spears and so on. All of these weapons are great as they have batteries and can make lights and sounds, which are fantastic for recreating scenes from the movies or TV shows.
