Bob The Builder Toy Review

Fisher-Price has launched an exciting new Bob the Builder toy range, to celebrate the launch of the toys and the start of the summer holidays they are creating an impressive 60-tonne sand sculpture at Beach East by the Olympic Park in London.  Friends and families can enjoy lots of beach fun and sunshine at East London’s sizzling summer attraction from the 23rd July until the 4th September 2016. We have been sent 2 of the new range of toys so we can get in on the sand sculpture action.
The new range of toys are all suitable for ages 3 and up and includes a Build & Saw toolbox, diecast vehicles, pull back trucks and mash and mould vehicles. We were sent the fab Mash and mould construction site and the R/C Super Scoop to try out.
The fun is in your child's hands with R/C Super Scoop from Fisher-Price. This remote control vehicle brings Bob's best friend to life with motorised action, cool sounds, fun phrases, and a one-of-a-kind jaw-dropping stunt! The easy-to-use remote control lets children send Scoop racing forwards or backwards, and also operates his back bucket for cool digging action. But R/C Super Scoop has another trick in store that's sure to astonish little builders. Ever see a digging machine do a handstand? with the push of a button, scoop delivers his scoop stand, an incredible stunt where scoop uses his back digger to push himself up onto his front bucket, then lift his body straight into the air! The R/C Super Scoop retails at £39.99 and available to buy from Argos.
Mr C had so much fun with Scoop, the whole unit requires 6 batteries, there are some demo ones included in Scoop. The remote control makes Scoop go backwards, forward and makes the scoop front arm lift and you can make him stand on his scoop with the other. The B button on the side of scoop has lots of different phrases everytime you press it. The toy does have a high price tag, but it is really well made and it's priced around what I would expect for a licensed toy product. Aside from the remote control action, there is also a manual play option, you can use life the scoop manually and push Scoop around the floor on his wheels.
Budding builders can start laying foundations for creativity with the Bob the Builder Mash & Mould Construction Site from Fisher-Price. This unique playset includes 16 ounces/450 grammes of Mash & Mould Playsand – an amazing material that never dries out and allows children to build, demolish, and re-build all day long! Kids can use five different tools and over 35 moulds to shape, build, and mash their own sand creations. Includes a 2-sided sand stamp with bob on one side and wendy on the other, a crane inspired by the popular character tiny with multiple moulds that acts as a wrecking ball; a dizzy sand vehicle, 2 custom mould trays. The Mash and Mould Playset is available from Argos priced at £29.99.
This is a fab set for some interactive play, there are so many different ways to play with the sand. I love the sand to as it's not really grainy, it clumps together really easily, so it doesn't get everywhere. I also love that lots of tool scan be stored around the playset in the slots. Mr C enjoyed exploring all the different ways on which he could mould the sand. He was easily able to remove the sand from the mould once he was done. He loved the roller that makes 3d tool shapes. We loved the set and it has been played with lots since it first arrived.
The kids have loved playing with these fab toys from Fisher Price and I am sure they will be well played with in the future. You can see these and the rest of the range over at Fisher-Price, pop over and see the rest of the range. I hate to say it but its only 20 Fridays until Christmas and these are probably going to be high on some little ones Christmas lists this year.
Thanks For Reading
