The Mighty Benz collection of toys has been extremely popular with kids over the last several years since they were introduced. If you do not know what they are then they can best be described as small capsule shaped toys that do crazy flips and stunts as you roll them along the ground. They are about one inch long, and they have a small marble inside of them that makes then act wobbly and eccentric as they move along a hard smooth surface. What is really cool about these beans is that they have action figure type characters on them usually in the form of animals, superheros, or TV characters. Moose Enterprises of Australia makes this unusual toy, and they have released them in sets of twenty, with five character beans per set, and children really enjoy collecting them all. Young kids between five and ten seem to enjoy trading them with their friends to get missing beans to complete their particular set. One really cool aspect to this toy is that the company has decided to release collector edition sets and character for children to gather up.
These special edition Mighty Beanz have started to become a rare and collectible type of toy. This adds tremendous collection value and appeal to these toys that kids really enjoy. This year there were several special edition beanz released on to the market. You can find them sold with a guaranteed collector case, or sold as part of a separate unit like the flip track. These special edition beanz include the Crash Test Dummy Bean, the Computer bean, the Skeleton Bean, and the Genie Bean. The company has also rereleased one of their original collector toys that is quite popular called the Mighty Moose Bean. With this bean the company released 1000 in each country where they were sold, and in a unique color combination for each country. For example, in the Canada the bean is read, and in Australia it has a gold bottom.
Mighty Moose released many limited edition beanz in one thousand for each edition, and they do not have the typical serial numbering on them. These include the Albino Bean, the Space Invader Bean, the Ghost Bean, and the Nose Picker Bean, to name just a few. Some of these collector beans are quite hard to find as they were released in very small numbers, usually less than five hundred, and they include the Secret Agent Bean, the Gadgets Bean, the Double Agent Bean, and the Scarecrow Bean. The small numbers of production have made these rare editions quite popular, and prices on the after market are several times the original retail price. eBay is a popular outlet for finding the rare and collectible Mighty Beanz.
One special edition bean that is quite popular was the Christmas Mighty Beanz. These were sold in very small quantities as only two hundred and fifty were released. These rare beanz were never sent to retail outlets, but only sent out by the company to some of their business partners. Never the less, the eager collector can find these if they look hard enough. The Christmas set includes special characters like the Santa Claus Bean, the Christmas Tree Bean, the Elf Bean, the Rudolf Bean, and the Christmas Pudding Bean. It is widely expected that Moose Enterprises will continue releasing rare and collectible Mighty Beans as the years go along.
