Simplistic toy is payloads of fun!
on October 24, 2013
I have three nephews ages 5, 3 and 2 and it is hard to find a toy that all three like to play with. They fight over this simple rocket/astronaut toy despite the fact that it doesn't make any noises or have any fancy flashing lights. They love the fact that the capsule pulls off and they can fly it around with their astronauts in the capsule (or other small figurines or "cargo"). It is quite durable as proved by the manhandling this toy gets on a very regular basis in my household. It may be simplistic in design but it does not inhibit their ability to have fun with it at all and I daresay it increases their enjoyment as they are free to use their imagination!
The box that the toy came in is also simple and all cardboard- easy to remove the toy from as well as flatten for recycling.
One note of caution: If your young child's pacifier sudden goes missing and can not be found anywhere - check the rocket ship for it. The blue and especially the red astronaut like to take cargo with them on their space flights and nothing is immune from trips to outer space- even beloved pacifiers.
