Mattel recently sent my son a couple of WWE action figures (Fist Poundin’ Undertaker and Big Talkin’ CM Punk). I’m not into wrestling (Kelly Kelly, please don’t hate me…or K2 me). It’s actually my mom’s fault. When I was a kid, my cousins lived with us. And one of my cousins loved professional wrestling. She loved the action so much that she would scream loudly when she watched, which drove my mom crazy. My mom warned my cousin several times to stop screaming, but my cousin couldn’t help it. Eventually my mom couldn’t take the screaming anymore so she refused to let any of us watch wrestling.
My son isn’t into WWE either and I wasn’t sure if he would like these toys. It turns out he does like them. And he even knows how to make the action figures perform wicked moves even though he has never watched WWE. I think he learned the moves from all the times he and his sisters body slammed, head butted, kicked, and punched me. And because I’m dad, I can only defend myself by tickling them. I get pain, they get laughter. Totally unfair.
Anyhow, if you’re looking for a toy gift for Christmas, take a look at the Mattel WWE line of wrestling action figures.
