LEGO are innovative and have developed a cute mini figure torch in a variety of characters. The 3" key ring torch featured is a nice collectible as well as being very useful too.
Light up your life with a Lego minifigure torch
The toy manufacturer Lego has created many wonderful toys in the building block range. Many of them are collectible, especially those sets that contain Lego minifigs like the Batman Lego or Harry Potter Hogwarts and Star Wars sets. There are many others too and all have the tiny 2 inch minifigures as part of the building block sets. These figures have become so popular that they are collectibles in their own right. The addition of the torch feature is very clever.
Lego men torches
Many of the Marvel and DC comics characters are now available as stand alone toys. Especially popular are Batman, Robin, Spider-man and many of the henchmen or baddies that do battle against the superheroes. To compliment these collectible figures Lego have incorporated a torch into the figure which is larger than the tiny minifigures used for play.
These torches are large at over 7 inches long and are very good as reading lights because of the bright light they produce. The lighting battery and bulbs are contained securely in the product and are quite robust. The switch is contained on the breast plate and a torch bulb is contained in each leg. They legs are adjustable so that the beams can shine in two directions at once. the dynamo version allows you to charge the light source by cranking the arm of the toy by winding it.
Small 3 inch torches
These smaller ones are key rings and stand 3" tall. They are ideal for use on a dark night when you are fumbling about for the lock to your door. The tactile toy will provide all the illumination you require to unlock your premises. This Lego key ring version contains 2 batteries (CR2025) which are neatly inserted into the back of the figure. Two tiny screws hold the back plate in place securely. The torches are boy orientated in design but Lego Friends is trying to get girls more interested in building toys.

The dynamo figure works on the old bicycle dynamo principal to provide illumination. The hand crank system is used and you simply turn the arm of the mini figure to generate to power to light the LED bulbs in the feet of the toy.
