boys were pleased to be sent another piece in this fantastic set, all helping
build on their Batman adventures. We
have already previously reviewed the Batmobile, but it is very handy now having
a jail unit to keep the bad guys under lock and key…
once powered up is a dangerous foe with his advanced physical powers and kept
trying to release the villains (in our case wild animals that had been
rampaging the town). But luckily eldest
repositioned the bat signal to alert Batman to come to our assistance. Cue immediate arrival of the batmobile and
the battle began.
of action and excitement for children aged 3-8 will love these sets. We have all been longingly eyeing up the
Penguin submarine on the back of the box, which I must admit looks slightly
awesome even to me! These sets are
great for imaginative play and for sharing (my two will take a few characters
each and play nicely together!).
have three Batman’s and one Robin so they made light work of getting everyone
back in jail. But Bane had a
mischievous glint in his eye and a long-term plan to escape again… Given that
the boys found the glow when Bane powers up quite impressive, I do not think it
will be long before the baddies gain strength and plot their escape.
boys enjoy activating functions with the feet disks, in this case to open all
the jail cells. The feature appears
across all the sets so young children can quickly get the hang of using them.
am glad to be getting more inspiration ready for Christmas, as the sets do
start off relatively inexpensively. You
can spend as little as £10 and just add a new character to your exploits. I would prefer Father Christmas focus on
what I know would be a success (and build on this collection) rather than buy haphazardly like last year!
Far too much of it still sits dejectedly in the toy box.
You can buy the Gotham City
Jail for £34.99 from Smyths Toys.
