Today is a great day for Sikh representation as the very first Sikh action figure, of Baaj Singh, has been launched and brought to you all.
Growing up you would have seen toy figures like He-man, Ninja Turtles, Transformers, Ken and barbie but now for the very first time a Sikh action figure that can be in every home across the globe has been launched.
We got an exclusive interview with Sukh Singh, director at Khalsa Toy Store.
Talking about their work he said: “We started this journey to bring to life Sikh representation in an industry where our faces didn’t seem to fit.
“Growing up we’ve all had idols, superheros and heroines we felt drawn to and inspired by. However, why did none of our action figures, kids toys or magical characters represent us when we have such a rich and iconic history of truly inspiring people.
“It’s imperative for young children to learn the tales of our forefathers and mothers and feel proud of their heritage.”
“This is why we want to introduce our image and identity to the toys and collectables industry where we will standout just as we are supposed to, thanks to the blessings and Paatshahi bestowed upon us by our beloved Guru.”
Bhai Baaj Singh was a very strong and brave Sikh. His bravery and fighting skills were famous far and wide.
When Bhai Baaj Singh was caught and brought to Delhi, he remained in high spirits and could be heard singing Gurbani loudly and saying Vaheguru Vaheguru all the time.
