Playing with toys is something that fewer children are doing. Instead, children are spending much more time sitting in front of their iPads and computer screen in search of entertainment. Whilst these forms of entertainment can help to keep your children quiet, you might also find that they become lethargic and their vision starts to suffer as the result of watching so much television for hours on end.
You might want to introduce them to quality pop toys and figurines so that they spend some time away from the screens. They will be able to rest their eyes and they will feel much more energised. They can also use their imaginations to make up different scenarios with the toys that they are playing with. They might invent storylines where characters are pitted against each other in battle or they are working together in order to achieve a common goal.
What popular shows and comics have toys that can entertain children for hours on end?
21 Jump Street
21 Jump Street is an action comedy that stars Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum as two policemen who go undercover in a high school. They are trying to stop the supply of illegal drugs at the school and to arrest the main dealer.

Children can play with an action figure of Officer Schmidt or Officer Jenko, and they can use him to fight off bad guys and to make arrests. This will give children hours of fun.
A Nightmare On Elm Street
A Nightmare On Elm Street is a classic horror movie where children’s dreams are haunted by a sinister figure called Freddy Krueger. This means that the characters die in real life.
