Thomas the tank Engine - Born to Play - Crazy Golf Set.....
Jack received this Thomas the Tank Engine Crazy Golf set as another one of his third birthday presents and he absolutely loves it. Both Himself and Jack have such fun playing with it that I am not sure who really gets the most enjoyment from it.
Now as it was a present I am not sure how much it actually cost but I have seen it in our local toy shop for around £20 but on line I have seen that you can pick it up for around the £15 price range. I would say that this is a little pricey compared to other golf sets that can be bought from Tesco's and such places however this one does come with Thomas items that give the item much more playability.
The set includes two golf clubs and two balls. Both are made of a chunky and hard wearing plastic that can take Jacks beatings on a regular basis so it appears to be of a high quality. The set also includes some "crazy" obstacles such as two grey plastic bridges which the ball can fit over with ease (if the aim is right) and two carriages where the ball can be aimed and played onto with ease. The carriages have faces on and I can honestly say I am not sure if they are characters from the show as I don't overly recognise them but again we don't watch the show that much.
The whole set is a really good fun toy that can be played with alone or indeed with two of you and because the items can be moved around it makes for different play each time you use it.
Jack does prefer just to hit the balls up and down the hallways rather than actually use the bridges and the carriages that are supplied but when the boys play together they use all the items and have great fun doing it.
The age range on the toy is for children aged three and over but I would think a younger child who was coordinated would get good fun from it too.
All in all this toy is such a simple yet fun idea that probably is a little pricey compared to similar items on the market. I don't think I would have paid out the £20 for it but Jack does play with it for hours at a time so it is a good product at keeping him interested.
I think a score of 4 stars out of 5 is in order and really the only minus mark is for it being a tad on the expensive side.
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
