Best Material to Use in Toy Manufacturing with 3D Printer

I don't really have any background in manufacturing toys but a guy in my warehouse is trying to create some prototypes on the side for a line of figures. He compares them to these Monsters in My Pocket toys:

And these Muscle Men:

They look like they're made of rubber. I was wondering what material you'd suggest for creating durable prototypes of similarly sized and shaped figurines?

Thanks, Caitlinsdad. Do you know whether Ninjaflex is PE or PP based?

Not sure, best to contact a supplier as I only have seen projects made from it.

Look into "ninjaflex filament" to use in the 3D printer. This material is flexible unlike the rigid PLA and ABS plastic standard filament. Good luck.
