Animal Hospital Helicopter Rescue
I bought my niece this for her 4th birthday last month. My niece is really into animals and she has a couple of the other Vivid Imaginations Animal Hospital toys and figurines. I bought this to add to her collection as she has lost some of the animals and accessories from her other sets.
The Helicopter comes boxed and when it is removed from the box it is in perfect condition. The accessories are also well packed and my niece gets quite impatient when we start unpacking them! The box itself is bright and vibrant and displays the helicopter and accessories on the outside of the box - very inviting for a small child.
Once unpacked there is no further assembly required for this toy and I see this as an added bonus that it can be played with straight from the box. The helicopter is made completely from hard plastic, there are no sharp edges or small parts that could be removed and eaten!
The side of the helicopter opens up to reveal the vet's working area, it has a working airlift with a cradle swing that can be attached to the airlift to hoist animals into the helicopter. It has the vet's working area to treat the sick animals, this has lots of interesting vet things like plasters, stethoscope, laptop, vet's bag, microscope and clipboard. All great to keep little hands busy.
Also included is a Vet complete with artic jacket, a mummy Penguin and a baby Penguin. There is a milk bottle for the baby Penguin and the baby Penguin and mother Penguin both fit into the cradle swing so they can be airlifted into the helicopter. The vet and Penguins are also made from plastic but like the helicopter there are no rough edges or small removable parts.
All in all this Helicopter is fantastic play value. It have been very well thought out and offers great interest and amusement for little children. The set offers the whole helicopter rescue experience with lots of accessories, vet and aniamls. There is also the scope to discuss endangered species with your children whilst playing with this toy.
I would say suitable for children 4 to 6 years, the box says suitable for children 3 years and over - might not interest a 3 year old as much as a 4 year old but really depends on the child.
Well thought out, durable and lots of play value - definitely 5 Dooyoo stars.
I paid £19.99 plus £3.99 postage for this Animal Hospital Helicopter Rescue. I bought it just over 5 weeks ago and I now see that you can buy it for £14.99 plus postage at eBay. Probably better to compare prices if you are thinking of buying one!
Help the vet rescue the injured penguin in her polar helicopter! Once the vet has located the injured penguin she can winch him to safety and treat him in her helicopter. Includes penguin family, magic colour change and play accessories.
