I remember this artform from my childhood but am unsure whether Kalkitos is its real name (and I'm suspicious because the rest of the article's content is dubious). The article could be of use if the name is correct and some of the silliness is removed. Does anyone know if this name is correct before it is cleaned up? I couldn't find anything in a Google English language search. Jilly 11:49, 28 March 2006 (UTC)
This (Kalkitos) is my first ever post on Wikipedia. They were definitley called Kalkitos (try a Google image search thereof). I tried not to be silly and just put down what I know to be true about the product. Feel free to remove anything that you think unnecessary or silly.
- I get your point, now that you mention it. I would call Kalkitos a game in the broadest sense of "amusement or pastime", and this sounds better than "toy" as this usually means an object that can be played with, which only roughly applies to a sticker that you stick to a background and that's it. In a sense, I would say that a war-themed Kalkitos set is more akin to a war-themed coloring books than to toy soldiers, and I'm not sure coloring books would be called "toys". "Sticker" is very specific and correctly classifies the Kalkitos figures per se, but fails to represent their purpose, which is to be used by children for amusement. But alas, I'm no native speaker, so I'd better leave nuances to those who are. Anyway, I have replaced "game" with "pastime" as a partial improvement.
