Mad Lids Review + 4-Pack Break

Party Animal Toys makes all kinds of neat sports related stuff.  When I first heard of them, they were only making Lil’ Teammates figures.  In addition to Lil’ Teammates figures, now they make TeenyMates, Lil’ Troops, and a new product called Mad Lids.

Mad Lids are exactly what they look like – tiny collectible hats.  Right now they’re only available for NFL teams, but I have a feeling it won’t be long until we see them cross over into other sports.  The hats themselves are down right exact miniature versions of the real thing.  You’ll even notice they include the New Era logo on the side.  If you look closely, you can even see small bumps on the hats to give them that authentic feel.

Unlike their other toys, Mad Lids do require some assembly.  The base, stand, and hat all need to be snapped together.  I found this to be quite simple.  The base contains a hexagon shaped hole in which the round stand gets placed into.  On the base, there is a blank area for a team sticker.  This seemed to be the most difficult part for me.  Getting those stickers on straight can be hard.

In addition to all (32) NFL teams, they’ve included (4) rare lids to keep an eye out for – Glow-In-The-Dark (1:64 packs), NFL Line Judge Cap (1:124 packs), Camouflage Cap (1:190 packs), and Metallic Gold (1:400 packs).  Chase pieces like this have been known to command serious money on the secondary market.

Here is what I found in my (4) packs:

  • (2) Cardinals
  • (2) Ravens
  • Jaguars
  • Patriots
  • Chargers
  • Steelers

Flashback Product of the Week: 1973 Topps Candy Lids

Over the years, Topps has issued some crazy products.  In 1973 they tested their Candy Lids with collectors, and it didn’t really amount to a lot.  The product was officially called Baseball Stars Bubble Gum.  Inside each tub were small bubble gum bites, and printed on the reverse side of the lid was an image of a baseball player.  The set consists of 55 different lids.  Being a test issue, it wasn’t distributed everywhere.  There are still some sealed tubs out there, although I wouldn’t suggest eating the gum.  Sellers are asking anywhere from $150.00 to $200.00 per tub.
