Harry once the boy who refused to ever stop and sit down to play has recently (since around Christmas time) found a new love of actually sitting and playing real games with his toys. He now loves nothing more than making up stories for his action figures, laying out tracks for his trains and actually doing something other than jumping from the furniture.
Recently he was sent a Fisher-Price Imaginext Power Rangers Morphin Megazord and he couldn’t have been happier, not that he knew what Power Rangers are as it’s not something he watches however he soon got stuck into playing and has had a complete blast with this giant toy.
I say giant because it is a rather large toy. Inside the box you’ll find 2 power ranger figures – Red and Black, 6 power coins which you shoot out of the chest compartment and 7 missiles which are shot from the hidden launchers.
This toy as you can see is shaped like a giant robot with lots of hidden compartments and features inside.
There are 4 activation power pads which let the children take control of the fun – place a power ranger on the pad and turn it and a different thing happens for each pad.
By turning the power pad on the left shoulder the chest of the robot opens, his eyes light up and out pops the cannon, turn another inside the chest to fire out the power coins – but be careful these shoot a long way and like to hide under the sofa or even behind the TV.
The third power pad is located above the left knee, when turned it raises the projectile launcher, push the button to fire and the last in over the right knee which when pushed down make the foot open and close – the foot is shaped like an animal so it looks like it is opening and closing its mouth.
Harry does find positioning the Power Rangers into these power pads a little difficult as they fall out if the feet aren’t pushed in correctly or fully.
On the back of this toy there is a jail feature to capture all the bad guys, there are also lots of play platforms and levels as well as an elevator. The robots arms also move.
Harry has been enjoying moving the figures around this set and mostly flying the power coins at me who he has decided is the bad buy in all our play scenarios.
This is available from Argos and other good retailers and is suitable for children aged 3-8 years and has a RRP of £66.99
