Kenner Steve Scout action figures
Kenner Steve Scout action figures are vintage toys produced by the American company Kenner during the 1970s.
The range of official scouting figures was released by Kenner in 1974, with a second series of figures and accessories released in 1975. At the time they faced strong competition from the range of licensed Mego figures such as comic book superheroes and television characters, and the line was soon discontinued in 1976.
The Kenner Steve Scout action figure range
The range featured two main fully poseable dolls, Steve and Bob scout. Both wear the official Boy Scout uniform, with Steve white and Bob African American, and measure 9” tall. The second wave of figures in 1975 brought two younger characters, Craig and Dave Cub, as smaller figures who wore official Cub Scout uniforms.
The figures had single-item accessories such as the Signal Launcher and the Metal detector, along with an extensive number of themed play-sets featuring numerous accessories, outfits and vehicles. These were:
- Avalanche on Blizzard Ridge
- Ballon Race to Devil's Canyon
- Danger at Snake River
- Escape Glide from Eagle Mountain
- Lost in the High Country
- The Pathfinder
- Porta Power Rescue Cycle
- Search for the Spanish Galleon
- Warning from Thunderhead Weather Station
- Wilderness Base at Rocky Rapids
- Fire Fighter
- Mountain Medic
How much are Kenner Steve Scout action figures worth?
Although the figures (particularly the Cub Scout figures) and many of the play-sets are fairly rare and hard to find, they are not as valuable as many other figures and dolls of the same era.
However, a boxed example of either Scout doll can sell for up to $30 on sites such as eBay, with the Cub Scout figures sometime fetching more than $50 depending on condition.
Boxed play-sets with all their original components intact can sell for up to $30-$40 depending on the particular set.
