Default Military dolls to promote Forces careers to children

Last Updated: 4:42PM BST 06 May 2009

A new range of military action figures for children is to be launched on Wednesday.

The toys are intended to fill the gap in the market left by figures popular with youngsters in the past such as Action Man
The soldiers, sailors and pilots were designed by Character Options toy manufacturers in conjunction with the Army, Royal Navy and RAF to ensure the camouflage gear and weapons are authentic.
A total of 32 products will feature in the initial HM Armed Forces collection, including a Royal Marine Commando, an Army Infantryman and an RAF Fast Jet Pilot.
Vehicles will also be available, such as a tank with spring-powered gun, a vertical take-off and landing with opening ****pit for the pilot, retractable landing gear and detachable spring-loaded wing missiles and a remote control hovercraft which travels over water and land.
Further toys will be added to the range to provide children with the chance to play games and dress up, as well as a dedicated website.
The toys are intended to fill the gap in the market left by figures popular with youngsters in the past such as Action Man.
"Character Options is proud to unveil the new HM Armed Forces collection which promises to fill the significant void in the action figure market in recent years caused by the lack of authentic military-inspired toys," a spokesman for the company said.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence said: "We are rightly proud to be celebrating our Armed Forces through the production of these new action figures.
"These toys showcase our people and equipment and this commercial recognition proves the high level support for our forces among the British public."
