    Vocabulary doubt

    Hello,

    I've searched online but couldn't find one word. How do you call boy's dolls? You know those little toys of men and super heroes figures?

    Ex: I bought my son a nice sipderman (doll??).

    Thanks

    They are called action figures.

    "How do you call" is wrong. You should say "What do you call (boys' dolls, for example)."
