Disney Tangled Deluxe Figurine Set
Advantages: Good quality figures that fans of Tangled will appreciate
Disadvantages: Quite expensive for 9 plastic figures, Only 1 villain
If you have read my older reviews you may be aware that my daughter loves the film Tangled. Whilst browsing in The Disney Store last year a big set of Tangled characters caught her eye and ended up coming home with us!
The set came in plastic packaging (a nightmare to get in to, naturally) and you could see exactly what you were getting - 9 plastic figures.
Figures include grown up Rapunzel, young Rapunzel, Pascal (Rapunzel's chameleon sidekick), Mother Gothel (Rapunzel's evil mother/captor), Flynn Ryder (Rapunzel's love interest), Maximus (the heroic horse), Shorty, Vladimir and Hook Hand (three of the 'Pub Thugs').
All of the figures look exactly as they do in the film and are all sized in proportion - Eg. Maximus and the Pub Thugs are really big, but Pascal (the smallest in the set) and young Rapunzel are a lot smaller. All of the figures are a good size and are very chunky - easy for youngsters to get their hands around. They are made of solid plastic and are very durable - as mentioned we have had the set for a year and it's still in perfect condition - no chips, scratches or bits that have broken off. All of the figures have flat bases so they are all easy to stand up and play with on flat surfaces.
There is only one villain in the set (Mother Gothel). The Pub Thugs look like villains but are actually 'goodies' in the film. I think maybe there should be at least another villain in the set, just to even things out. Perhaps 'The Stabbington Brothers' or Captain of the guards?
My daughter (4 years) absolutely adores small fiddly toys and often favours these over big expensive toys! So as you can imagine she loves this set. She often uses the figures to recreate scenes from the film and also to make up her own stories, which is great for encouraging imaginative play. There doesn't appear to be any safety hazards (no very small parts etc) and the set is recommended for children 3+ years. I think the set would most be enjoyed by 3-8 year old Tangled fans.
We actually brought the set a year ago at The Disney Store in Paris but they were also available in UK Disney Stores. I'm not actually sure if they sell this exact set anymore (I can't see it on the website but it might be worth checking in store), although they do sometimes bring back stock and you can probably pick up the set online somewhere too. The set cost £18 which I suppose it quite expensive for 9 plastic figures, but they are good quality and they have been played with lots.
Summary: A good quality Tangled set.
