Little plastic soldiers

Ok, so I remember playing for hours with my plastic soldiers fighting against the Germans. There was the one with the walkie-talkie, the one prone on the ground, the one rushing forward and the one throwing a grenade. If you were a boy growing up in America you remember them. I have even seen the same little green men for sale in packs here in Poland.

So my son comes home from a birthday party (he is 4) and has several "little brown men" in the same poses. While looking at them imagine my surprise when I realize GI Joe is Comrade Joseph. He is holding a PPSh gun and not a carbine.

Ok so then I realized that the birthday boy's parents were Russian. Who'da thought that they had different plastic men.

Re: Little plastic soldiers

Thats pretty awesome, over here in Canada I've seen bags of assorted Soviet army men with a little commie flag to boot!
They are pretty nifty.
