Cowboy Toys - Yee haw!

Updated on December 12, 2013

Toys from the Wild West

A collection of the best cowboy toys for kids. Fun for role play and learning about the history of the Wild West.

My five year old son recently came home from school really excited about cowboys. He had found some cowboy toys at school and it really sparked his interest. He started asking lots of questions about how cowboys lived. So we've been finding out about cowboys and I've been looking for some cowboys toys.

We've had some interesting discussions about how lots of the cowboys were from Africa and had black skin. That cowboys and Native America Indians wasn't a question of good versus bad. And we've had beans on toast for tea.

Saddle up and let's find us some powerful good toys.

      The picture makes it look like this is a huge pile of legos. It's not. It's a small pile of legos. I'm not happy with the puhscare. I went to the Legos store and bought the same product for $20 less than what I paid here.

      I did pay a lot of money (more than purchase price) to have this item eedtpiexd. It didn't show up in time. However, the company made good by returning a few of the shipping dollars, and the product is what it is, without the themes you have to purchase in stores. The experience other than the delay was fine.
