TOMY Pokémon Review and Competition

Eldest has gone Pokémon crazy thanks to our latest TOMY toy testing delivery. When this arrived his eyes lit up and I was told excitedly “I am so pleased my mummy blogs”!!! Cue lots of big smiles, then “My friends will want to come and visit me and play with these”.

think they are delightful figures, as they are very detailed. If you’re a fan of the show they will be an
instant hit for your children, as they are very realistic replicas of the
characters they so love. Eldest is 5
but I know that these figures hold interest for children much older, so if you
start collecting them now you will get plenty more fun and entertainment for
years to come.

The figures are compatible with all the other sets which helps you feel your getting value for money, as everything can be played with together in one big enjoyable play session! Nothing worse than feeling your children have wasted money with something that has very limited use or appeal, but not the case here. Eldest loves them so much; he is trying to earmark toys his brother and himself have outgrown to sell so he can buy more Pokémon figures instead!

The Play n Store Case is simply fabulous. They can safely store all their beloved
characters inside and transport them on holiday or to a friends for more
battling sessions.

The case can hold a
fair few figures and doubles up as an exciting play area. Eldest enjoyed placing the characters inside,
spinning them on the spinner, pretending them were being fixed up by the nurse
(a sticker inside set off his imagination) after all poorly Pokémon need to recuperate! It’s a hard life battling…

My only complaint is that thanks to TOMY I now have to have
lots of boys round on playdates so eldest can show them to EVERYONE, so thanks
for that! But am pleased these have
really made him so happy. Also now I
have a good idea what to get him for presents again, he has exhausted
collecting Skylanders so I was at a loss what he would like in terms of
figures. Hooray I can bribe
good behaviour out of him again by linking his reward chart to the
figures! Tepig and Pignite will be his
next treat! Each figure has its own ID
tag too, so you can feel like a proper trainer by buying the complete kit with
plenty of scope to keep adding to your sets. The figures and sets are aged 4+ which I think is about right as some of the figures are quite small. Youngest who is 4 was quite intrigued by them but with eldest hogging them he did not get a proper chance, although he has claimed the Chuggington that arrived as his now (review to follow shortly).

Catch n Return Poké Ball was quite interesting; you
pull it back, open the ball and release trying to catch your figure off its
stand. I have yet to master it but we
are having lots of amusement trying to get the hang of it! It is quite a novel idea and eldest is
delighted to have such interactive sets.

Having tempted you
with how much fun eldest has had with these, I thought it would only fair to
leave you with an exciting competition to enter for your own children. I have a prize pack worth just over £40
comprising of a Catch n Return Poké
Ball (£12.99), the Evolution three figure pack (£9.99) and a Play n Store Case
(£19.99) to enter simply complete the rafflecopter below by the 12th
of June.
