What It Is
The G.I. JOE: Retaliation Ninja Dojo Set comes with three 3.75-inch action figures based on characters from the movie and include Beachhead, a G.I. JOE ranger; Kamakura, a COBRA operative; and Night Ops Roadblock. Each figure comes with a variety of accessories, i.e. weapons. Kids can set the figures up in all kinds of poses, but once armed, it may be a little difficult to get the figures to stand up on their own, particularly with the very large missile launcher.
Why It’s Fun
Kids can recreate the action-packed ninja sequences from G.I. JOE: Retaliation with the Ninja Dojo Set. These highly articulated figures have terrific details and lots of accessories for creating active, imaginative play as kids imagine Roadblock and his companions battling the evil COBRA.
Who It’s For
The G.I. JOE: Retaliation Ninja Dojo Set is for G.I. JOE fans ages 4 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The movie is rated PG-13 because of violence, so it may not be appropriate for all children even if the violence is very cartoon-like. This is always a challenge with toys based on these types of movies. Collectors and G.I. JOE fans want plenty of non-stop action and insist on at least a PG-13 rating. As always, parents need to determine what's appropriate for their family and their individual kids. For kids who love G.I. JOE and action figures, though, there's plenty of play built into these action figures even if the kids don't see the movie.
