One collectible toy that is quite popular over the last few years is the Mighty Beans collection of toys. They are made like small plastic egg shaped toys that are a slight resemblance to the Mexican jumping beans of old. The idea of the toy is very simple, when you roll them on a smooth hard surface they will do all kinds of crazy flips and twists that can entertain your child for hours. Once you get the hang of it, and know how to push them along the ground, you can have races with other children for added fun. Children like to put them on a tilted surface and have bean races with one another. This bean toy has a small marble inside of the plastic capsule and it causes the bean to wobble and do stunts as you push it along. These crazy beans are about one inch in length, have a flat side on each end, and look like a medication capsule. This is a very simple toy, but children really are amused by them, especially since they are come in fun character figures.
This is a collectible type of toy. Until recently Mighty Beans were made with twenty series of characters with five in each series, bringing the total to one hundred characters you can collect. The characters are very attractive to children and usually come as some type of animal, super hero, or monsters. Examples of characters include the superheros of the Marvel comics, the cast from the Simpsons TV show, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The beans come is a pack of six toys each, and there are also three pack boosters sets as well.
