Another great toy in the Mega Rig line!,
= Durability: = Fun: = Educational:
This review is from: Matchbox Mega Rig Shark Adventure (Toy)
My boys (ages 5 and 7) love the variety in the Mega Rig items each year. This is no exception. It is a pretty big set with lots of options for creating smaller boats. My younger son received it for his birthday, and he immediately created two smaller boats (to share with his brother and sister) along with the large section. They even combine the other Mega Rig sets to create different areas of their "world" on the living room rug.
The best feature for me is the fact that the shark has a slit on the underside. I can get my finger in there and poke out anything that the shark has "eaten", so nothing gets stuck there.
A previous reviewer gave this a very low rating simply because it includes a harpoon (so they assumed that the entire premise of the set suggests violence). THat's nonsense! All 3 of my children haven't even used the harpoon, they are so busy with other features of the set. It hasn't even occurred to them to kill sea creatures.

Wow. I suppose all Hot Wheels should be banned next because cars give off exhaust so Hot Wheels must want all children to kill the ice caps.

Come on lets get real. You didn't really think the harpoon was there to kill sharks did you? What a sick mind you have! You must have played soldiers too much as a kid or heaven forbid "cowboys and Indians!"
Anyone with half a brain an without a twisted mind knows that it is there for when the ship cruises near Somalia so it can defend itself from all of the Islamist pirates.

Thanks for the great review snoopygirl! I don't get parents nowadays, when I grew up we played cops n robbers and even smoked candy cigarettes... ahhhh oh my! lol! I am happy to report that I do not shoot people, I am not a cop or robber AND I do not smoke. I also was allowed to dress like a princess with the crown and all... sadly... that did not make me a princess either :(
If you can't see the BIG HUGE HARPOON at the front of the boat in the many photos provided that actually blowup for larger views then I nor anyone except Lens Crafters can help you. For parents claiming violence that never even bought the boat and just have nothing better to do with your life than troll kids toys pages for toys that "offend you" and not their parents, then please find a better cause like harsher punishments for child molesters and child rapists.
ps. My husband played cowboys and Indians and he grew up to fly commercial airplanes.... without spurs or even a featured hat!
