TimetoPlayMag.com Ratings and Reviews
At TimetoPlayMag.com, we want to engage, inform and entertain our readers to give them the benefit of our knowledge, experience and the breadth of products we cover. We look at more than 10,000 new toys and children’s products every year, and our primary purpose is to help you make the best choices for the kids in your life.
Our goal is to give you the real story on what you’ll find when you bring a toy home. And we know that every kid and every family is different. That’s why we always say: “The hot toy is only hot if it’s hot for your child.”
Our editorial team has more than 100 years combined experience working in the toy industry. Our rating system ranks toys on 4 key criteria:
- Fun — Does it engage the child? Does it inspire imaginative play? Does it contribute to creative expression? Is it entertaining?
- Repeat Play OR Collectibility — Some toys are played with, some are collected. If we feel a toy is better suited for collectibility, we’ll rank it based on Collectibility instead of Repeat Play.
- Repeat Play — Will kids come back to it over time? Does the toy allow diverse imaginative play experiences? Does it provide longer-term play value?
- Collectibility — Some toys may have limited traditional play, but kids will treasure them as collectibles.
- Assembly/Instructions — Is the toy easy to assemble? Are the instructions clear?
Over the years we’ve learned a lot about what makes great toys and exciting play experiences. We want to help you create the best experiences for your kids and your family.
Ultimately, you’re the best judge of what you want to bring into your home — and what’s best for your kids. And because you’re an important part of the Time to Play family, we invite you to let us know if you ever find an error or have any ideas how we can better help you. After all, we exist for one reason: to help you have more fun!
What It Is
On June 17, 2011, a new superhero hits movie screens. Green Lantern stars Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan, a cocky test pilot who becomes part of an intergalactic brotherhood called the Green Lantern Corps, charged with keeping peace and justice in the universe. When a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the universe, the fate of the Corps and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of Hal Jordan, aka Green Lantern. Mattel is producing a line of toys for both kids and adults based on the new movie.
The Green Lantern Basic Figures are four-inch action figures including key characters, such as Hal Jordan, Sinestro, Stel, and Hannu. Each figure is poseable and comes with a construct accessory and a Power Ring that kids can wear.
Why It’s Fun
Every movie has its collection of action figures. They are a classic play pattern that inspires narrative-based play, and these beautifully detailed action figures will allow kids to imaginatively bring these characters to life as they reenact the story from the movie, or create their own exciting scenarios.
For collectors, these highly anticipated figures will be much sought-after.
Who It’s For
The Green Lantern Basic Figures are for ages 4 and up. Boys who are into superheroes, especially the Green Lantern, will want to have this toy.
And don't forget the collectors, who represent a huge number of action figure consumers.
What to Be Aware of
The Power Rings that come with each figure do not light up.
