Review and giveaway: Lil' Troops

Disclosure: I received this product to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

Last week the kids and I were having a long day. They been playing pretty well together, but had run out of ideas that they found acceptable for things to do.  Which meant they were hanging out in the kitchen with me, which meant I, in turn, was being less than productive. Thankfully, I had recently received a new product to review and hadn't yet shown it to the kids. When I opened the box, the kids squealed with excitement and began negotiations regarding which action figure belonged to which kid. The new product that I had received is called Lil' Troops, and they come from the same company that has brought us our beloved Lil' Teammates toys.  Here's a bit about these action figures, from a press release that I received:
Lil' Troops are the first military action figures licensed by the U.S. Army. Each vinyl figure stands at 3" tall and includes its own accessories. The first series debuts 5 different figures:

The Desert Trooper
The Infantryman
The Rescue Pilot
The Recon Scout
The Urban Trooper

Lil' Troops also help big troops! A portion of each Lil' Troops sale is devoted to U.S. Army Morale, Welfare and Recreation programs.

We received the Infantryman and the Rescue Pilot figures.  The kids were so excited by the figures. The figures have great detail and come with little accessories, which the kids also thought was fun.  I really like that these figures celebrate the army and all that it does, but they aren't all about guns and shooting.  Ethan and Vivian had a great time playing and having their figures get into all sorts of interesting adventures!

I have great news- one lucky reader will win 2 of these action figures for yourself! Open to US mailing addresses, enter at the Rafflecopter widget below.

I think the Rescue Pilot would be the first one my nephew would choose. He's really into airplanes and flying right now.
