My Thoughts

I rarely look at YouTube and I haven't touched a video game since the original Mario Brothers came out, but I have a 12-year-old who aspires to be a professional YouTube gamer someday.  Because of him, some of these names were instantly familiar and I knew these collectibles would be a great gift for his birthday next week. 




Captain Sparklez in one of my son's favorite YouTubers, and he just loved the selection of Tube Hero products featuring his hero. He received three different pieces, and of course they will remain in the box with tags in place for the next forty years. 




With the life-size slime sword, Captain Sparkles can morph into any shape, and now kids can use their imagination and achieve the same goals.  The sword is very lightweight plastic so it's easy to carry and doesn't bend or break easily.




This mini action figure set  comes complete with Captain Sparkles, Jerry Slime, the slime sword, and a shield. The glasses are even removable.



This Captain Sparkles is a huggable plush that makes for a great collectible. Who needs beanie babies when you have Tube Heroes?

All three of the toys are very well made with tons of intricate detail. It's so cool for my son to see his idols converted into collectable figures.  Now his new goal is to someday see his own face on Tube Heroes.  If you'd like to learn more about Tube Hereos and all they have to offer, be sure to visit their website or follow them via social media.
