CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
Three Space Ships in One!
The durable, brightly colored Turbo Shuttle seats three Planet Heroes action figures, and is actually three cool space ships in one: two swift "pods" snap off the sides of the shuttle, providing three times the speed and maneuverability! Your child can press the shuttle's button to hear amazing laser sounds and play the Planet Heroes theme song, or he or she can start the "engine" with a sliding mechanism and see "flames" shoot out the turbo booster. Realistic take-off and landing sounds are activated when the pods are removed and reattached. The pods can also be attached to certain Planet Heroes figures as individual jet packs.
Built for Little Hands
Featuring durable plastic construction, the Turbo Shuttle is designed to withstand the enthusiastic play of young children. It also features larger buttons and pieces that make it easier for small hands to manipulate. The toy requires 4 AA batteries (not included). Planet Heroes action figures must be purchased separately.
What's in the Box
1 Fisher Price Planet Heroes Turbo Shuttle, including the shuttle and 2 smaller pods.

He absolutely loves it. What you don't see in the store or online is that there is a "base" to the rocket that includes a handle that allows the child to hold it from the underside and "fly" it around the room. There is also a trigger on that handle that turns on the "flames" and sound effects.
VERY Durable - my son is rough and is already beating this up with no issues. I have to remind him not to pull on the "flame" mechinisim but other than that it's very strong
Works well. So many toys like this don't do what they say but this one does.
If he looses the shooting arrow from one of the smaller pods he will be upset. I wish it was somehow attached with a short cord or something. For toddlers, keeping track of small pcs can be difficult, but this is the only pc that is likely to get lost on the ship.
I also bought him the Rings, Digger, and Ace characters to go with his ship and they have all been well loved too. I'm adding the others characters to his Christmas list as well.
As far as the Pros and Cons...
Pros - Very little assembly, basically pop the 3 legs on and you're set.
- Large and durable, molded plastic throughout, and the "flame" gadget on the end has fabric flaps that don't break off.
- The line of toys have educational facts about the planets and solar system, but there are very little of that kind of info on this shuttle toy itself.
Cons - You'll be singing the Planet Heroes theme song even if you don't want to, because this toy plays it every other time you push the top orange button.
- The flame effect motor is loud, when that thing spins I can hear it from 3 rooms away.
- Get ready to indulge requests for every other Planet Heroes toy/figure, which are fairly bulky toys and not readily available everywhere.
I've read the other reviews about kids (3 year olds in particular) almost getting poked in the eye when the flame-effect plastic rod extends from the back of the shuttle. Whereas I don't doubt the other reviewers I question the likelihood of this happening repeatedly and truly inducing injury. For one, the toy is both heavy and large therefore I can't picture a child (especially at 3) hefting it at face level for long, obstructing their view. For two, there are very bright colored LED's that shine outward illuminating the spinning fabric as part of the effect, further discouraging anyone from placing their eye in the line of fire so-to-speak. Again, I don't doubt their near miss experiences happened.Read more ›
The rocket ship is really durable and easy to manipulate for young children. It has a handle on the bottom with a "trigger" that works the sounds and the "flames" that come out of the back. There are a couple of buttons/levers that also activate the rocket sounds.
There are 2 pods that detach from the main ship. One has a pincher like tool on the front that works to grab things. The other pod has an arrow that you can "launch" by pressing a button on the steering column. I do agree with a previous reviewer that the arrow tends to get lost. Other than that, this is a great toy for young kids!
I noticed some reviewers mentioned the possible safety hazard of the plastic "flame" that pokes out the back of the rocket when the trigger is pulled. We haven't had any issue with it. it is made of pretty flimsy plastic, overlayed with fabric. My son thinks it's funny to poke himself with it, and hasn't been hurt. Although I don't doubt that if a child were running with the toy and fell on it, an accident could occur. I wouldn't call it a safety issue, but it's worth mentioning.
We also purchased Mars Digger and Earth Ace to go along with this toy. The figures are chunky and sturdy and easy to stand and manipulate the limbs and fit well into the rocket.Read more ›
