AJ’s Toy Boarders Surf Series Review

Pack-AJs Toy Boarders Surf Series
A Pack of AJs Toy Boarders Surf Series

AJ’s Toy Boarders, unlike surf boards, can surf anywhere. In water, snow, sand and even on your furniture. Just a little under 2 inches tall, these plastic figures can go just about anywhere. Each series comes with 8 different poses, with three of each pose featured in each pack.

All 8 Different Poses

While green plastic army men tend to come mind as being the most compatible with AJ’s Toy Boarders, plastic Cowboys and Indians and even plastic dinosaurs would fit perfectly into their miniature world as would the other series of AJ’s Toy Boarders that feature snowboarders and skateboarders.

Priced at $5.95 and sold in a pack of 24, AJ’s Toy Boarders are great for display or play, no matter your age and perhaps are the only way to catch some waves any time, any place.

Dollar Store Finds: Trading Cards

Magic The Gathering Cards

Dollar Tree is generally not the first place you would look when searching for trading cards. Although, the retail chain offers repackaged packs of trading cards, such as Yu-Gi-Oh (sold in packs of 9), Magic: The Gathering(sold in packs of 10, pictured above) and Dragon Ball Z (sold in packs of six, pictured below) and only for $1. While none of the cards are particular rare or new, the price point certainly does provide a great sampling of what a trading card game can offer.

LEGO To Return To McDonalds Happy Meals

LEGO McDonalds Happy MealLEGO will be returning to McDonald’s Happy Meal’s around the world thanks to a new promotion for the upcoming film, The LEGO Movie. The last time LEGO found itself inside a happy meal was in 2008, when LEGO Batman The Video Game figures were included with each meal. Unfortunately, it is unlikely that the promotion will provide consumers of Happy Meals with an actual LEGO set, but rather, more likely, a figure of LEGO character that themselves are not compatible with the LEGO System. Expect the promotion to begin sometime in January, 2014.
