Do your kids like sword play as much as mine do? With five boys in our family, we’ve had a variety of swords pile up around here in two decades’ times.
Nerf swords, no-brand-name swords from the store, plain homemade swords out of two thin planks of wood, and fancy homemade swords out of PVC pipe and foam have all fought in battle around here.
Not to mention all the weapons made out of popsicle sticks or random old branches from bushes in the yard. We have so many swords that whenever all the brothers are home, they can all get in the act, even with their big sister. Here she is, still in a dress and heels, fighting with her brothers, impressing her soon-to-be husband!
The swords that have lasted for over a decade are made out of PVC pipe with foam and fabric covering the pipe to make them safe for play. They do the job, but admittedly, they don’t look super cool.
That’s why I am so thrilled to tell you about my new favorite ultimate source for the best-looking and funnest toy swords ever! I recently stumbled upon it and feel so fortunate. It’s Prime Swords by Formidable Toys. These are the best! They take sword play to the next level! As unique works of art, with eye popping colors and designs, they look so epic, you would think that you had entered into one of Tolkien’s tales while wielding one.
They are super durable and super safe. They come in lots of dynamic colors and styles, from the basic swords like these, the Eon style:
To fancier ones like this with a double cross guard, the Riven style:
To the ultra super fancy ones like this, the Dragon style:
All of them have interchangeable pieces, so you can mix and match the blade, cross guard and handle, among your collection. So they become customizable. You can have a fire blade with an ice hilt, or vice versa. How cool is that?
You can check out all the styles and buy them here. The paint stretches with the foam sword so it is non-flaking, because who wants the cool colors to fade and wear off?
Here’s a video review showing how awesome these swords are:
Talk about the best birthday gift for a little boy ever! These swords encourage active and outdoor play. We all want more of that for our kids in the easy-screen-for-entertainment-age, right? What’s best of all is these swords were designed by a real life dad out of his love for his little boy. Here’s the story of how Formidable Toys got started in the founder’s own words:
Formidable Toys started in 2011 with my son’s wild imagination. He has always loved swords and making them out of anything and everything. One day he started asking us to draw swords for him with different styles of blades and grips.
Over weeks the drawings evolved and I thought that it would be cool to have a toy sword that had dragon heads as cross guards and blades that could be switched out, so that, for example, an ice dragon could have a fire blade in its mouth. At that moment, Prime Swords was born.
From basic drawings and concepts, my very talented cousin Mark drew the first fire dragon sword. His art elevated Prime Swords to a whole new level. We worked through developing the components and models of each sword so that everything worked well together and looked amazing.
At Formidable Toys we feel strongly about inspiring kids’ imaginations and providing quality products that kids will love. We hope you see the value of our products and have some crazy fun adventures with your kids as you battle with Prime Swords.
So go get some Prime Swords today and start forging your own adventures!
