Ben 10 Action Figures
Action figures can also double up as a collectible, which makes them top our list of Ben 10 toys for your kids. Please note that most of these action figures are no more than four inches in height and can be a choking hazard for younger kids and babies.
1. Ben 10
If your child is a Ben 10 fan, then his toy chest is not complete without a Ben 10 toy in it. The Ben 10 is especially for the show’s fans and kids who love collecting action figures. The figure is five inches tall and made of non-toxic material, but suitable only for older kids.

If your little boy or girl loves watching Ben 10, the Omnitrix watch is perhaps one thing she’d want as a gift. After all, that is what they need to transform into alien heroes. Right?
Features: The Omnitrix basic watch may not be able to transform your child into one of the alien heroes, but it sure has the options for it.

The watch is green, white, and black and has a solid wristband that keeps it from falling off. The Omnitrix has three modes of play – first for the alien phrases, second to hear ambient sounds, and third to replicate the DNA code found in the other Ben 10 toys. Interesting, isn’t it?
Okay, this one is a Ben 10 weapon that is not a watch! The Tech Blaster is a really cool toy that looks nothing like a gun at first glance. But once you start unfolding it and rearranging the patterns, you’ll see why the toy is such a hit with fans.
Features: The tech blaster is neatly packaged as a kit that can be re-assembled to make five different toys! The blaster has 12 different combinations and five different patterns for creating different Ben 10 toys namely the multi-scope, a scanner, a mini-blaster, a decoder, and the etch blaster!

The Ultimatrix toy has futuristic design and a translucent body that makes it glow better when the lights change. It also has the original Ultimatrix sound effects, inspiring the kids to indulge their imagination for the pretentious play or role play!
As a bonus, the Ultimatrix toy also has a secret signature of the creator, Azmuth.
This is also a variation of the Omnitrix, but it doubles up as a cool gadget on your wrist too: a projector! The projector watch by Ben 10 is more popular than the others and is one toy your kid will love to show off to his friends!
Features: This is an illumination toy, which means your child can project pictures of his favorite alien on the screen or the wall.

And the watch is easy to use too – just insert the card into the slot and press the button to display different cartoon characters from the TV series. You can also collect additional image cards, by purchasing them separately.
The Omnitrix toys are cool. But how do you make pretentious play more fun and realistic? You will need more accessories for that, won’t you?
Ben 10 Masks & Extensions
Besides the Omnitrixes and the action figures, other Ben 10 toys that your kids will love are the alien masks and the extensions that aid in imaginative pretentious play.
Imagine having an arm that can blast off missiles! It’d be cool, wouldn’t it?
Well, that is why the Ben 10 Humungosaur arm is one of the coolest toys we recommend you buy for your child.
Features: This is an extension of the alien named Humungosaur, who is a humanoid dinosaur that stands 12-feet tall and can grow up to 60 feet tall!

It comes with four missiles and can be used in pretentious play to beat the villains just as it does in the TV show. The product has to be assembled before use.
Is Heatblast your child’s favorite alien hero? If yes, he or she would love owning the Heatblast mask and gauntlet.
Features: The bright colored gauntlet and mask are just what your kid needs for transforming into the Ben 10 alien hero, Heatblast. The gauntlet comes with an extending fireball that can be thrown at the enemies and make them feel the heat! The mask and the gauntlet are ideal for kids aged four or above. Made from a safe and child-friendly material, the gauntlet and the mask can be worn comfortably for pretentious play.
One thing, perhaps the only thing, which can transform someone into a Ben 10 alien is a mask. One of the coolest things among the Ben 10 merchandise is the Four Arms alien mask in bright red.
Features: Made from high-quality plastic, the Four Arms alien mask comes with an adjustable strap and can fit kids aged four and above. The mask has detailed features of the alien with green eyebrows and a mean expression.

Vehicles and spaceships are perhaps the most common superhero merchandise that kids like to collect. If the Ben 10 fan in your house does not have his favorite Ben 10 car or spaceship yet, read on to find the right one for him.
Ben 10 Transporters & Vehicles
Like the masks, gauntlets and the awesome Omnitrixes, Ben also has some of the coolest cars and spaceships that transport him from one place to the other. And these toys are the exact replicas of those cool vehicles.
16. Ben 10 Ultimate Alien – Alien Crash Vehicle
The crash vehicle as the name says is one that breaks into different parts on collision with an object. And the best part is that it can be fixed right back! However, this toy is ideal for older kids aged four or more.
Features: The Alien Crash Vehicle set contains a crash car with Ben and Kevin sitting inside. The set also contains spare body parts for the car. So you can have a black and green or a black and yellow colored crash car. Assemble the car, roll it from an altitude and let it hit something solid to see it dismantle on collision.
While the toy is fun, kids should be told that collisions can be dangerous in real life and should be avoided.
This is more of a machine that creates aliens than transports them. The alien creation chamber allows your child to make aliens using the interchangeable alien parts.
Features: The Alien Creation Transporter chamber is a kit that comes with a mini-chamber, two alien figures, and alien combo cards. The kit also has a unique alien key to unlocking the figures in the chamber. The alien figures can be dismantled, and the parts can be used to create different alien creatures anyway they want, just by sliding the shells inside the chamber.
Also, the mini-chamber is pocket-sized and can be carried anywhere with ease.
The story of Ben 10 begins with Ben and his cousin traveling in with his grandpa, who is a plumber. The plumber spaceship is based on this premise and comes with a figurine of grandpa max, who is dressed in a plumber’s uniform.
Features: The spaceship toy is in white and blue, with the Omnitrix logo on top and a place for grandpa to sit in comfortably. The spaceship can be set to six different modes including the original plumber, crawler, charge, and water modes where it has water skis, battle max mode, and light speed mode. Whatever mode you choose, Grandpa Max’s figurine fits right in to protect humankind and the earth from the evil villains.
The Ben 10 Alien Force Galvanic Gunship toy is the 4-inch scale replica of the powerful spaceship that Ben and his friends use in the TV series. The bright black and green colored toy has a glow-in-the-dark feature that makes it appealing to all Ben 10 fans.
Features: The Galvanic spaceship comes with eight missiles or three varieties and an exclusive ship that can be detached from the spaceship. The vehicle can be disengaged to create three small attack vehicles. The best part about this toy is that it has its very own glow, which makes it light up in the dark! The components of the ship can be unlocked when it is placed on the gunship.
The spaceship is a must have if your child already has the alien figure collection with him!
You can buy these Ben 10 toys and more such as the Hex action figure, Cruiser Nanite Tracker, Rustbucket Deluxe Vehicle Transforming Playset, Intergalactic Plumber Command Center, and the Omniverse Roleplay Set Proto-Specs. And, if that is not enough, then there are Ben 10 themed accessories such as bags, water bottles, lunch packs, bed sheets, towels and decorative centerpieces for your child’s room!
Ben 10 is a legend in the circle of cartoon heroes! If your children have watched the TV series and have loved him, they do deserve a little something to treasure and cherish their memories, don’t you think?
