Toy Soldier for Little Boys and Collectors
The toy soldier is a favourite toy amongst boys. It is a miniature figurine that represents a soldier. The term applies to descriptions of uniformed military personnel from all eras and includes knights, cowboys, pirates, samurais, and other subjects that involve combat-related themes. Toy soldiers differ from simple toys to highly realistic and detailed figures. The previous are of more recent development and are sometimes called model figures usually for collectors to differentiate them from traditional toy soldiers.
Most of the Toy soldiers that are mass produced are made from metal or plastic. There are many different kinds of toy soldiers, including tin soldiers or flats, hollow cast metal figures, composition figures, and plastic army men.
