RETURN OF BATTLE MOUNTAIN

I'm happy to report that yet another round of classic TimMee toys has been recently reissued using the original molds, including their prehistoric, yet timeless set of 48 Cavemen...
 
The armored military scout vehicle (for use with their set of Army Men)...



I'm particularly excited about the mountain because as a dad I've noticed that toy environments are not all that common these days, while action figures and vehicles remain abundant. My childhood Star Wars guys had the Death Star to hang their hats in, my MASK figures had Boulder Hill, my GoBots had their respective good and evil command centers, and my Secret Wars figures had a Tower of Doom. But my son and I often end up resorting to toy blocks and cardboard boxes when in need of a hideout. Imagination shimagination, we finally have a proper domicile!

The greatest strength of Battle Mountain is its versatility.  Over the years it's been incorporated into numerous playsets, from dinosaurs to military to jungle...


Now that it's mine, the mountain shall serve countless new purposes...

 
Galaxy Laser Team battleground (which were also reissued.)

 M.U.S.C.L.E Men Haven

Skeleton's Delight

 Terrifying monster cave

 The Land of Jeff Goldblum

The mountain and the rest are all available on Amazon.

Haha 'Land of Jeff Goldblum.'

It's true, the Battle Mountain has a million uses! I just love mine!

I have been amassing my little plastic toy collection as of late. I believe it may be time for me to acquire Battle Mountain. It really is the perfect catch-all play set!

A wise decision Mason. Ours is still put to use regularly, and when my kid stops using it I'll put it to work!
