Best Revolutionary War Toy Soldiers

      Comments Off on Best Revolutionary War Toy Soldiers

Revolutionary War toy soldiers and action figures are fun, historical toys that are perfect for classroom activities, projects or just for playtime.

With toy soldiers, the more detailed the toy soldiers are, the more expensive they are. If you want a toy set that comes with a large amount of toy soldiers, you’ll have to settle for soldiers that are painted one solid color with minimal details.

If you want more detailed toy soldiers, you’ll have to spring for the more expensive hand-painted soldiers that come in packs of three to five.

Since there are a lot of Revolutionary War toy soldiers on the market, I made a list of what are considered the best toy soldiers. These specific toys look great, are historically accurate, they’re affordable and they get great reviews from online shoppers.

These toy soldiers can also be used for AWI wargaming although smaller scale AWI miniatures designed specifically for wargaming are ideal.

The following is a list of the best Revolutionary War toy soldiers:
