Great Choice, Good Value!
on November 8, 2009
My four year old son choose this item over a more expensive Lego playset when he earned a "reward". I was a bit worried that it may not hold his attention very long. But, it has! And after looking at it more closely, I can see how it would offer him many opportunities to use his imagination and come up with a variety of scenarios involving all the different gadgets and contraptions included in this playset. There are two tethers for space flight, a space pod for traveling, two moveable platforms (one for shooting the laser and one for landing the space pod), there are various rooms with shield/windows, a moveable door, &, of course, a green alien that can attach/attack an astronauts head. And there are 2 astronauts included, with attachable helmets and lasers each.
We've had the set thrown around w/o any damage. There are a few small pieces that we have to hide from our infant, but otherwise, she's fascinated by the gadgetry too. Her favorite is shaking the teethers around because the bend and sway.
It is only a matter of time that this set will somehow join forces with the Batcave and the Castle to produce more Imaginext fun. It's great how so many of the pieces and characters are interchageable. Now, Santa just needs to deliver the Imaginext Space Shuttle!
