Bob The Builder has always been a firm favourite in our family. Firstly playing a huge part through out my nephews childhood and now my boys. They have a fab new toy range that has just been launched. And to celebrate Fisher Prices new range this awesome Bob the builder sand sculpture has been created at Beach East at the Olympic Park.
Isn’t it brilliant?!
We have been very lucky to have been asked to try out some of the new range and first up is…
Mash and Mould Construction Site
The base is made up of four hexagon pieces which fit together like a jigsaw, these can be arranged in various layouts.
There are endless ways to get to creative with so many moulds to choose from, 35 to be precise. And using the mash and mould sand, which never dries out, allows you to build and demolish and re-build as many times as you like.
You can make little barrels using Dizzy.
Build brick walls and then demolish them with Tiny the Crane and his wrecking ball.
We were really impressed with just how many little activities there is in one play set. You also have shape cutters, rollers, different inlays that you can mould your sand into and create shapes such as pliers, cement bags, wrenches, crates and much more. And all of the moulding tools fit snuggly in little slits on the base as you can see.
This footprint Stamp has Bob one side and Wendy the other.
Use the mould press garage to create more funky masterpieces. You just place the sand into the mould, slide it under the press and push the press down.
There’s hours of fun to be had with this Mash and mould construction site and definitely worth £ 29.99. You can buy this set from all good toy stores.
Next up is…..
Remote control Scoop
The remote control Scoop is just brilliant. This is recommended for age 3+.
Scoop comes with a simple to use controller, which is ideal for little hands.
• Remote-controlled Bob the Builder Scoop vehicle
• Remote features controls for forwards, backwards, motorized back bucket, and “Scoop Stand” stunt mode
• In “Scoop Stand” stunt mode, R/C Super Scoop uses his back digger to push himself up onto his front bucket, then lift his body straight into the air, like he’s doing a handstand
• Manually use the exhaust pipe to lift the front bucket and activate lights, sounds and phrases
• Children can also press the ‘B’ button to activate lights and sounds
He goes forwards and backwards, lifts his digger and has lots of sounds and phrases as he shows off his moves. His best stunt is the Scoop Stand. Using his back digger to push himself up onto his front bucket, and then lifts his body straight up in the air. He then does an awesome celebratory dance by pushing his digger up and down.
It is quite simple as far as steering goes, with just the forward and backward mode. But I think this is very apt, due to being aimed at toddlers, keeping it nice and easy to operate.
This is well worth £49.99 and is available at all good toy shops.
We have really enjoyed trying out part of the new Bob the builder toy range and think they will be a huge hit with any budding little builder.
