A Cartoon Comes to Life
Kids will love tinkering with the bike as Manny guides them through different repairs and modifications. View larger.
With a visual style based on the show, Manny and his friends will capture kids' attention. Manny stands approximately eight inches tall, and is dressed in a bomber jacket and blue jeans. His arms, legs and head are adjustable, and he can easily be positioned to sit on his bike. Manny's two friends, Rusty and Felipe, are more than just props -- they are functional tools, which can be used to tighten the motorcycle's screws and bolts.
The bike itself has a green paint job, and many of the parts have a metallic sheen to them. Sturdy and well-constructed, the motorcycle can drive on hard surfaces like other toy vehicles. For a vehicle that is meant to be taken apart and customized, it handles very well. All of the modifiable parts can be screwed into place tightly using Felipe the Screwdriver.
Two Game Modes
Most of the action is focused around the motorcycle's two voice-instructed game modes: Fix-It Mode and Customize Mode. The games are designed to teach children the basic parts of motor vehicles. Players can install and remove a variety of parts, including the engine, the front tire, the fork, the muffler, and the seat bar. There is also a side car, where Rusty and Felipe can sit as passengers while Manny drives.
Installing parts is both intuitive and enjoyable, and gives kids a sense for how real tools function. When a child installs a part, Manny talks and identifies each part in an affable and enthusiastic voice. Also, Manny says phrases in both English and Spanish, adding an extra educational element to the toy.
Even though the toy is recommended for ages three and up, younger kids might not have the dexterity necessary to screw in some of the smaller parts by themselves. A parent may need to assist younger children at first.
