Skate culture has become such a big part of modern society, especially for the younger generations that these Toy Boarders seem like the perfect way to introduce the sport to little ones. Not to mention that grown men would probably collect them, and maybe even play with them too.

Created by Jim Alfaro and his son, Toy Boarders are modeled after the iconic green Toy Soldiers that have become a staple in many playrooms around the world. Yet in place of helmets and guns, these Toy Boarders sport baseball caps and skateboards. According to My Modern Met, "Each of the eight riders represent real moves that are used by today's riders like tail grab and ollie." Stats for Miniature Soldier Skaters Trending: Older & Mild
