“ Manufacturer: Born To Play / Type: Construction „
My youngest son is coming up to the age of two and alike my twins, he is becoming a big fan of Bob the builder. He has the books, watches the television programme and is taking a general interest in all things Bob.
Christmas was approaching and this was one of our gift choices for him after looking around at the toys on offer.
*Why did we choose this set?*
We primarily chose this set due to the fact that I find it very difficult to ignore a bargain. In Argos, this 10 piece set was on special offer, reduced down to £29.29 from its very high original price of £79.99.
We had a look at its contents and were quite impressed with what we were getting. The se includes many old favourites such as Muck, Dizzy, Scoop and a few of the newer characters such as Scrambler. There are also a number of road cones and road signs long with models of Bob, Wendy, pilchard and my favourite Spud.
*Were the vehicles a hit?*
On Christmas morning, my little boy loved them! He was very eager to get through the packaging and play with them.
We were very impressed with the quality of the vehicles. There were no small parts which could be dangerous to our toddler, all parts were robust and hard wearing which is well needed with our little boisterous boy.
The wheels to the vehicles were friction powered and are very good quality. We were pleased to see that they have rubber on them in order to help them move with ease but also stops them from scratching the floor boards.
We have spent a lot of time since Christmas racing these vehicles around the floor and making up stories with them. He also had some Bob the Builder books so we also followed their storyline and he was very fascinated to read the story with his vehicles acting the storyline out for him.
*Value for money*
The individual vehicles usually sell for around £8 in the shops so at full price of £79.99, there is not much of a bargain to be had although the figures, cones and signs are probably thrown in to accommodate that.
At the current Argos price & the price that I paid of £29.29, this is exceptionally good value as it works out that each vehicle is just under £3 each. This I find is very good value.
A lovely set of trucks that are guaranteed to keep your toddler happy. The product has my recommendation based on the offer price
Complete with all your Bob the Builder characters plus Bristle with Scoop, Scrambler, Roley, Lofty and many more. Also included: 4 articulated character figures, 4 cones and 4 road signs.
