Bandai Ben 10 Omnitrix.
My oldest son went through a Ben 10 obsession not long ago and everything had to be ben 10. Duvet cover, towel you name it, he had it. Well along with his other ben 10 items he absolutely needed the omnitrix, what self-respecting Ben 10 fan could be without one. Right? This one is the basic version which is what we initially bought for him, but he has since been upgraded by Nan to the more expensive and modern version. Nanny does spoil them...lol!
We bought this in Argos a few years ago for around £20 I think, but I can't quite remember but I have seen them more recently on amazon for £16.99.
For anyone not in the know, Ben 10 is a cartoon character who has become extremely popular over the past few years. He is a boy who has a watch that can transform him into ten alien creatures. This is a replica of said watch. With the watch he has many adventures, defeating evil aliens and defending the earth. What fun it would be for kids to be able to imitate him.
The watch strap is made of black flexible plastic and the dial of hard black and green plastic with a small light that illuminates when the button is pressed and the famous transformation noise which is made in the series is made at the same time. The dial also turns for you to select the alien you wish to transform into. The watch itself is great but has a tendency to unclip after a while. It is quite robust and bulky, just like the one portrayed in both the cartoon and the film.
There are several versions available on the market and many have a lot more features, but this is an ideal product for the younger end of the market as the more elaborate versions are a little too fiddly and complex for little fingers to use, they are better suited to older children. Ben 10 has evolved over the years and so have the omnitrix watches.
This takes simple CR-2032 3V watch batteries that can be replaced in the back much like normal watches. This watch has given my son endless hours of imaginative fun and although he has a more up to date version he still returns to this one on occasion. He and his friends enjoy playing with these and they have been played with outside being thrown about and played with in a rather rough fashion...as only boys can!! This watch is still going strong and has only a few little scuffs and scratches which don't surprise me as this has gone through the mill. It's a very resilient and hardy toy.
There are lots of other Ben 10 items to buy that complement this product wonderfully including the dress up set. All of which enhances the enjoyment that kids can get out of this watch. The omnitrix is a great imaginative toy that Ben 10 fans can thoroughly enjoy and immerse themselves in. The watch has been a great addition to my kid's toy box and my youngest son has just recently started to play with the watch, not copying ben 10 but wanting to be like his big brother. My youngest is not really into Ben 10 ...yet!!
I would definitely recommend buying this for any Ben 10 fan. I'm sure they would definitely have a lot of fun with this and their imagination will grow immensely...and that's what being a kid is about.
Summary: A great toy for fun and adventure.
