Toy Review: Half-Shell Heroes Mutant Loader Vehicle
At the moment whenever the TV is on whilst my son’s awake, he wants the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on. I don’t mind, because I watched the original series during my childhood and love how they haven’t changed it in so many ways.
The Half-Shell Heroes are toys suited to younger children, and we tested one of the new toys from their range this week.
The Half-Shell Heroes Mutant Loader Vehicle comes with Mikey (Michelangelo) and it features a forklift to lift anything from the baddies to other cars and trucks, or in my son’s case, dinosaurs.
Once you’ve captured something on the forklift you can flip them into the capture cage.
My son was VERY excited to get this in the post to test out, and asked me to quote him because after all he is the expert.
He said: “I love the forklift because I can chuck the bad guy Shredder in the air and into Mikey’s cage. I like that Mikey has a special seat when he’s driving and it fits all my turtles if they want to explore”.
This is aimed at children aged 2-4, but I think it’s also appealing to slightly older children.
It seems sturdy and it matches his other turtle vehicles that he got for Christmas.
Mikey is his favourite so it was going to be a hit regardless, but I do like how he is using it to look at what he can and can’t lift, and what shapes will fit onto the forklift; Anything that is in line with the things he’s learning at school at the moment are always a hit with me!
There are lots more toys in the range which includes dressing up costumes which are on my son’s birthday list.
No payment was made for this review. The toy was sent for the purpose of testing and reviewing. All opinions are honest and my own.
