      Don't waste your money

      Our little lad is a big Ben 10 fan and he was wanting a Ben 10 Green cruiser car for a while before we bought him his. He was well and truly over the moon with it. This isn't an inexpensive toy as it cost best part of thirty quid for what is essentially just a bit of cheap plastic. This is a poor quality piece of equipment. It hasn't proved to be very durable at all and it fell apart very soon after we bought it new from Argos.

      The reason our little lad was so keen to get hold of one was due to the fact that is little friend said at school he had one. Naturally, our little lad wanted one too, although he hadn't actually seen it, he'd just been 'told' what it could do. I think the main reason he wanted it was because it comes with two little balls and a couple of Ben 10 aliens. It also comes with a certain powder which turns into a gel when it is mixed with water, allowing the user to 'trap' the aliens with the gel. Just like on Cartoon Network as seen by Ben 10.

      Gel aside, the door fell off at the hinges after 48 hours. I managed to replace it but knew it wouldn't be long before it fell off again and then bits of the sides of the car kept on snapping off very easily. This was a really disappointing present for our little lad.

      This toy is by no means well made. It is cheap and looks cheap and performs like a toy which should have cost less than half the price. For almost thirty quid I was expecting more durability than this. My little lad is not particularly rough with his toys but because he knew he was having to be so careful every time he played with it as bits kept falling off, he inevitably soon lost interest and it quickly became relegate to the back of the cupboard.

      Overall, not an impressive toy at all and I certainly do not recommend it.

        I would save money and buy a couple of figures instead!

        My 5 year old son has been a fan of Ben 10 for about two years now. It is a fascination that isn't fading and as a result my house is filled with many Ben 10 toys and products!

        Kevin Levin is a main character from Ben 10 alien force. He appeared in the first series of Ben 10 as some kind of alien but was changed back. Kevin is your typical sulky teenage boy and although he helps Ben and his cousin Gwen in their quest to fight other aliens and find Grandpa Max you are never quite sure if he really is a good guy. Kevin's pride and joy is his bright green cruiser car.

        Last Christmas my brother was supposed to be buying the Kevin Cruiser for my son but in the end opted for something else. In a rush of guilt we decided to go shopping to try and get the Kevin Cruiser as well....and to be frank I kind of wish we hadn't bothered.

        The car at the time was £29.99 and is in no way worth that kind of money. It comes with two small balls and a couple of small aliens and some powder which once you add water turns into gel. You can "trap" the aliens in gel in the balls and store them in the boot of Kevin's car.

        What we noticed almost immediately was that the sides of the car break off very easily. Although they are supposed to lift up to make the car transform more often than not they were off fully as they just wouldn't stay on. As a result my son began to play less and less with it whilst other Ben 10 cars were continually played with. I would say don't waste your money on this product as it isn't well made and is very expensive.

        Avoid buying it if possible!

        An expensive piece of plastic, that's all this car is.

        Ben 10 is a children's serial on cartoon network. And anyone who has a little boy will know about it. You can now get toys, shoes, coats, lunch boxes, arm bands, rugs, lamps.... the list is never ending.

        My son is also a Ben 10 fan and he has several products from the range. He wanted this car for Christmas. After reading several bad reviews about this product I chose to ignore them all thinking they were exaggerating. They were all right.

        It cost £29.99! When I collected it from the counter at Argos the box was so light. I had to shake it to make sure there was something in it.

        On Christmas when my son opened it he was vey happy and excited. It comes with several additional gadgets. The plastic swords are suppose to attach onto the door so when the car is in action mode. Well they don't stay. There are three balls which are supposed to shoot out from the car... THEY DONT. The hinges on the door are so poorly manufactured that the door keeps falling off. I would have expected this sort of quality from pound land for a £1 or max £5.00. Not for £30.00!

        I eventually got fed up when my son would come to me every five minutes with a sad face asking me to attach the doors back on, so I took it back to the store and got my money back. The whole purpose of buying a toy in the first place is to entertain the kids and keep them happy.

        I wouldn't even buy this car if it was on sale for half price. My son has several transformers cars which are priced at the same range and they are heavier and good quality.

        Avoid buying if possible.
