My daughter is Scooby Doo crazy too (I am sure she loves everything going at the moment!) and she saw an advert during the break on Milkshake for the Glow In The Dark Stretch Scooby Doo and promptly put it down on her Christmas list. It is made by Character Options and is recommended for children from ages 5 and upwards but my daughter was only 3 and a half when she got this and was fine with it. I think the age recommendation is based upon whether a child will chew it or not.
The Scooby Doo is fairly large which was a nice surprise. I did expect it to be quite small whilst waiting for it to come down on the belt in Argos. He can be stretched in many ways and can go as far as being stretched to 3 times his original size and still promptly snap back into shape which I think is quite cool and my daughter was more than happy to put this claim to the test!
The toy is great if you have two kids as they can pull it togther but my daughter is an only child so we have to take part in the animal cruelty and torture poor old Scooby Doo by stretching him to within an inch of his life!
One thing which really did please me about Scooby Doo was how much like Scooby Doo he looks. He is a proper well made replica even down to the little markings on him.
When it gets dark, he glows in the dark - you see the markings of a skeleton on him! He glows quite brightly too which is a surprise as half the time these glow in the dark things don't work!
I don't think there is alot to do with this toy and ultimately my daughter did eventually get a bit bored of him. I haven't seen her play with him for a while now as it really is just a case of stretching him and that is it.
We paid £19.99 for this toy for my daughter and although it is really well made and of a really high standard quality wise, I don't think it is worth the price as the toy does tend to get a little boring and ultimately ends up just sitting on a shelf.
My niece is Scooby doo mad so I brought her this as a birthday gift last year, unfortunately my daughters spotted it and decided they wanted it too so I ended up having to buy another one for them.
Scooby doo is a nice size to be handled by children from ages 5 years and up as stated on the box, he is a very fun toy to play with and stretch, he can be stretched up to 3 times his original size and twisted into all sorts of shapes and sizes, this is a great toy if you have more than one child as it is something they can work together on stretching him into different shapes rather than playing alone but can be used by just one child.
The figure it self looks very realistic, maybe that's the wrong word for it as he doesn't look like a real dog in any way but he looks very much like the Scooby doo character which I think is great as I have purchased so many toys over the years that look nothing like the character they are supposed to.
I was a little concerned with how much this toy cost that it wouldn't return to normal after being stretched and would end up looking very misshape but this hasn't happened and after nearly 12 months of torture from my daughters he still returns back to his original shape.
My daughter's absolute favourite part about stretch Scooby is the skeleton inside him, it glows in the dark so you can in the dark see where you are stretching his bones and what shape you are stretching them into.
This toy retailed at around £20 when I brought it a year ago, I think it is a great toy and after the hours my daughters have played together with it without fighting which is rare in our house it was well worth the money.
I have always adored anything to do with Scooby Doo, finding his scaredy-cat ways was something I identified with! There are quite a few Scooby toys on the market, so it can get bewildering knowing which ones to plump for. This one caught my eye though because it is something a little different from the norm. If you're bored of the plush dolls and the action figures and fancy something quite ridiculous, then the glow in the dark stretch Scooby Doo could provide you with a few minutes of fun.
Primarily designed for kids, this toy is a bit like a modern day Stretch Armstrong, remember him? It's a rubbery toy that you can bend and stretch in any direction and it always returns to its original shape and form. This is great for children to throw around and get aggressive with, a good way to unleash some pent some energy after school. Adults might also like to use him as a stress reliever or a warm up to a gym routine at home.
The toy measures about thirty centimetres in length and will always return to the original size. He can be stretched to three times his normal size, making him go very squashed and odd looking! The toy also glows in the dark. There are bone marks on his body which will light up when all the lights are turned off.
The colour scheme is good, with accurate browns and blues around the collar area. His face is also presented well with a cheeky looking grin on it. My main criticism is the price tag, which comes in at ten pound too dear for my lking. Twenty quid is a lot for a stretchy toy and out of the reach of a lot of kids' pocket money allowance. Despite this, he is fun and would make a neat birthday gift.
