Top Customer Reviews
I usually disregard reviews that say it took X number of hours to assemble, because it typically takes me 1/4 of the time they say. But this took over 1 1/2 hours for me to construct and I didn't apply the sheets filled with stickers.
The cityscape on the top and left is actually printed cardboard that's held in place with tiny clips that don't even snap in place. Gravity holds them on, which of course means when the kids are playing they fall off and so does the cityscape.
Many of the pipes that are prominent in the design are only molded to 180 degrees. The back side are not a finished piece like you'd expect.
All of the snap connections throughout the entire set are terrible quality. The molding is horrible, the design and engineering aparently was never tested, because it takes very little force to "disassemble" any and all of the pieces. I suppose it would be fine if it were a "model" that sat on a shelf just to be looked at. But since it's a playset the design is just unacceptable.
The parts are mostly very flimsy and poorly designed. Some actually can't support their own weight. If you hold the edge of some they sag by 15-20 degrees. Most people buying this are probably familiar with imaginext playsets, very sturdy, if parts fall off it's because the kid was abusing it not just playing with it. This is NOT even close to that quality and stregth. If kids are playing nicely with this, pieces will fall off.
Build it where you want to keep it, because once it's built your not going to want to move it, parts will fall off. If you have any kids under 2 years old, it has to be 100% out of reach.
Our's came missing a few pieces that were suppose to be attached to one of the larger pieces from the factory. I contacted their customer support via e-mail, sent a picture they requested, then got the reply they don't have and can't get the defective part. So now I have to rip it apart to return it, just so I can build one once again.
I know many will buy this for Christmas and it'll be the "big gift" for the year. I'm telling you, this will ruin your holiday's. Santa would fire his elves for putting out a pile of junk like this. And at the price it retails for, after owning it I wouldn't pay over twenty bucks for it. It's instantly disposible, worst toy our kids have ever received.
I'm not one to write reviews, but I know this will be a hot seller for Christmas and hope I can prevent some of you from wasting your hard earned money on this garbage.
And that's the problem I have with this guy's review...he's looking at it in the eyes of a parent who A. Doesn't want to spend money on toys B. Doesn't want to spend time putting it together (and by the way, I put mine together, stickers in all, in about 45 minutes...this guy was probably doing his taxes or tweezing out his gray hairs at the same time he was putting HIS together) C. Doesn't take into account that KIDS ENJOY PLAYING WITH TOYS.
As far as the construction of the toy goes, he's right about the cardboard inserts...they fall off if handled. But the rest of the toys is super solid (even though...OH NO...THE PIPES ARE ONLY HALF-MOLDED! I can lift it in one piece by putting a finger under the power-line and carry it across the room.
Yes, I know the Imaginext playsets are durable and cheaper, but guess what: Imaginext doesn't make Ninja Turtles. And this guy thinks that it doesn't matter to a kid...a toy is a toy is a toy. No, buddy...if someone loves the Ninja Turtles cartoon, they're not going to settle for an Imaginext castle playset...they're going to want a Secret Sewer Lair.
Now, I do have to concur with another of the Matt's points...the price. At $120-$140, this is an expensive toy. But when I was a kid, these were known as the "Big Present." It was always the most expensive gift you got, the biggest under the tree, and the last to be opened. You never thought you would get the Big Present you asked for and when you did, it would blow your little mind. This isn't a toy that you get for your kids because you needed to buy some batteries at Target and your kids saw this on the shelf, this is a toy you get for extra-special occasions: Christmases, birthdays, Straight A's on report cards. And if that's the case, I don't care if I spend $150 bucks on a toy...and I certainly would care even less if my in-laws spent that money instead.
So in short, if your kids love Ninja Turtles, are decent, well-behaved children, and it's the Lord's birthday...get them the Secret Sewer Playset. Or, at the very least, ask your in-laws to buy it for them ;P
