“ Vivid Imaginations. „
Having been decidedly unimpressed with The Big Zing Playset as a whole, I was pleased to see that the actual characters (sold seperately) were well constructed and worth paying a couple of pounds each for. This character, like the others, retails for £4.99 which I feel is a tiny bit steep. Fortunately, this seems to be available at a reduced price from most retailers so shop around and find yourself a decent price.
Inside the see-through packet, this set simply includes the Tang figure and a little orange maraca. There's nothing else included, but the idea is that you're supposed to buy these to go along with the over-priced Big Zing Playset I think. Anyway, waste of money that is (see other reviews), instead you can encourage your kids to use this figure with their imagination, or any Playmobil they might already own (very simliar size).
Tang moves well and his joints are well constructed. His arms move easily up and down, so you can pretend to shake his maracas or make him wave or play some pretend drums! His legs move well too, and his head turns a little as well. He looks like his character does in the show, and he feels solid for a little hand to grip, bash around a little - and survive. I don't know if he'll stand the test of time just yet, but he's been played with for a few months already by our grandson, and I can't see any signs of damage.
I definitely recommend this little guy for young Zingzilla fans. He's well made, realistic and reasonably priced if you find him on sale.
