Here’s what the mums thought….
Did it keep your child entertained and for how long?
Lucy – Izzy really enjoyed playing with this toy , it kept her entertained for 20minutes or so every day that we had the toy.
Emma- Not that long, 10 minutes or so at a time
Helen – About 15 minutes at a time
Was it what they were expecting?
Lucy – Better than I expected as the figures were bigger and kept Izzy entertained.
Emma – He didnt have that high expectations but got bored as the figures dont do anything and requires solely on the childs imagination. Probably suited for a slightly older rather than younger child.
Helen – Yes, I would say so
Is the toy aimed at the right age group?
Lucy – Izzy is 7 and the toy is aimed at 4 plus, so yes but I think the older children will get more out of them. Even my 10 year old son wanted to play with them.
Emma – Yes, I would say so although it does require a lot of imaginative play
Helen – Yes
Is the toy safe and durable? Did it survive a play session without breaking?
Lucy – Yes very safe and even survived playing in the bath. The Drilbur character’s paint has chipped slightly.
Emma – Yes, no problems whilst we had the toy
Helen – Yes, survived being played with, put in pockets and falling off tables
What the kids thought…
What’s your favourite thing about the toy?
Izzy -Playing with the Pokenmons. I liked playing with them as a puppet show. It would be great to play with playdoh.
Max – Lots of different characters and that you can use as finger puppets
Max – Good for fighting without worrying about it breaking. They are really colourful and fun.
Would you tell your friends to play with the toy?
Izzy – Yes, I definately would
Max – Yes, I think so
Max – Yes, definately. They were really fun.
Is there anything you don’t like about the toy?
Izzy – I wish it was a whole set of Pokemons and that I have to give it back!
Max – No, I liked it but ‘they dont do much’
Max – Not at all. ‘They are small enough to fit in my pocket. Its great’
