A set features nine soldiers ($25). And instead of a standing on plastic platforms, soldiers are posed on yoga mats.

And why yoga? Because non-violent alternatives are a good thing.

"One mom emailed me because she doesn't allow violent toys in her house, especially soldiers, since her husband is deployed in Afghanistan," Dan Abramson, Yoga Joes founder, tells BuzzFeed Life. "She's overjoyed that her kids can play with soldiers without feeling anxious about their dad."

And being a soldier is about a lot more than carrying a gun.

"Yoga Joes celebrate the good qualities that soldiers should be known for," Abramson says. "Not as hot-headed or trigger-happy, but rather as peace-keepers trying to do the right thing."

Abramson hopes that everyone can enjoy his genderless toys.

"I think gendered toys exist as a ploy to sell double the toys," he says.
