bought my4 year old nephew a few of the papo pirate and corsairs figures and they went down really well. For a while he loved all things pirate and we read through some pirate related stories etc so you can get some education in after all!! hehe
The toy itself was well made of a durable soft(ish) plastic, well painted but has no stand but it can just about prop itself up if surfaces are flat.
This particular figure wasnt my nephews favourite though, he liked the ones with swords and guns more lol
A little overpriced Id say as no articulation but they look good and seem to be likable for a 4 year old at least.
Although expensive I havent seen many toys out there like this, not that are any cheaper or similarly made and painted/coloured
