My son received this little toy for his first birthday and it has become his firm favourite as its so simple but effective. The helicopter is red and has a blue propellor at the top of it which you need to flick yourself if you want it to spin round. The nice thing is that it has four wheels so you can zoom it around on the floor if you wish which my little boy like to do or you can zoom it around in the air like a real helicopter. It's only a small little helicopter, it fits in the palm of my hand so it's small enough for little hands to hold and play wit and I think that's the appeal of it.
On the front the helicopter there is a friendly smiling face which is made of see-through yellow plastic. You press this button and the face plate lights up and the helicopter bursts into song.
It first makes helicopter noises and then plays some tunes. The helicopter noise is very realistic which I think is cool. The first song it plays goes like this, "My rotor blades spin round and round, lifting me off the ground."
Then the helicopter pauses for a minute and says, "Let's take off." After that it sings, "I'm a useful helicopter, I like to fly everywhere, high in the sky, wave as I fly by." There is an off switch on the bottom of the helicopter should the noise annoy you after a while!
We think its fun to sing along and play with this little toy and my little boy has really enjoyed it since getting it too. The nice thing is that this helicopter interacts with the Toot-Toot Drivers Garage. We received this garage for Christmas from grandparents and its nice to have a set that the helicopter goes with too. There are ramps and noisy buttons to press and also a helicopter landing pad which activates the music on the helicopter which is great.
The little helicopter itself costs £5.99 and is a really fun little toy.
