Advantages: A great investment for hours of joy
Disadvantages: Washing issue
I'm very surprised to be the first person to review this dressing up costume, I thought it would be quite popular.
I purchased this outfit for my son last August ready to go and watch the live lazytown show. I let him try it on beforehand but not actually wear it properly until the night of the show.
It comes in the form of a jumpsuit which has velcro fastening on the back, This is the main part my son struggles with sometimes if the flaps aren't even it won't stay closed. The front of jumpsuit has a white padded part which turns my son into a muscle bound hero.
There is a little jacket part attached which closes together with a velcro fastening part at the front. This part has the emergency distress alarm lol. It is how the members of lazytown alert Sportacus they are in trouble Anyway with this outfit you press it and red lights flash on it.
Also as part of the outfit you get 2 wrist or they may be called armbands which again fasten with velcro, A hat and a pair of blue goggles finish off the outfit nicely. The belt on the waist is attached to the outfit.
Now the best place I found to buy this outfit and at the best price was tesco direct at a reasonable £12.00. Most other retailers were selling in the region of £17 minimum.
My son has literally worn and worn this costume to the extreme that the goggles are badly scratched and the armbands are worn and faded but he still loves it now and after looking over my shoulder just now and seeing the picture he ran off to get his, then wanted to know who the boy was that was wearing it on the screen lol..
My only niggle about this product is that it is hand wash only. Now imagine a boy who literally went through stages of wearing it constantly around the home and eating meals with it on! Do you think that is going to stay clean, well of course not and the sponge cleaning that is recommended for it just wasn't doing the job.I ended up having to tear off the emergency panic alarm bit and putting it through the washing machine. The alert thing has some sort of batteries in it so knew it couldn't go in machine.
It got it clean again anyway but the panic alert bit is still awaiting to be sewn back on.
On the whole my son has had so much use from this and will get plenty more use. Money well spent and when he turned up to watch the live show and saw lots of other Sportacus's and Stepanie's it made it all the more worth buying.
The sizes are very generous so when you buy I would buy the next size up as I done this and it still fits fine.
My 4 star rating is due to the washing issue
Incase you don't know about Sportacus and was wandering about my title then Sportacus has an apple to give him energy unlike the spinach that popeye has.
Summary: Great product and good quality it has taken alot of abuse to start to look used
