My boys could not believe their luck when the Teenage Mutant Turtle Secret Sewer Lair Playset turned up! It is massive, the box looked big enough on its own, but it grew even bigger once built.
So they had heaps of space to play around it, no characters came with the set but my boys had a Teenage Mutant Turtle character each in residence already, phew! They used to be found knocking around the playroom but now they have a custom built home just perfect for the two of them.
I think £99.99 is quite a bit to pay for a toy and we were worried when some of the building parts were cardboard pieces. But once built the lair seemed to come together quite nicely and was strong enough for my two and most importantly there were lots of interesting features which I think helps justify the price.
The build project took awhile luckily I had hubbie managing it as I think I would have taken twice as long to fathom out what to do!!! But seeing the boys delight when it was all set to play with was well worth it, already they have spent many hours with the lair! They have added lots of other random characters into the mix too, trying to break into the lair and claim it for their own. Fortunately with the built in security measures they have no chance, there is a gun hidden in a bin, a zip wire for quick escape, floors that fall out and so much more. Just discovering all the features provided plenty of entertainment and then their imaginations took care of the rest.
I asked the boys what do you like about the lair and they said “everything”. So there we go I think I would have definitely bought this as a Christmas present or birthday present, the boys have already ear marked other characters and vehicles in Argos's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle range they want to build up there collection! I think it’s going to be a very green and hard-shelled Christmas in our house this year…
