Little N and JJ recently got their lucky hands on some brilliant new Bob the Builder toys. We were sent a R/C Super Scoop and a Mash & Mould Playset to review, and the boys were SO excited when they arrived they tore the boxes open and demanded to play immediately!
The Fisher-Price Bob the Builder Mash & Mould Playset is a construction site with lots of little tools and comes with a bag of special Mash & Mould Playsand. You can put the pieces of the construction site together however you want and then use the various tools to "mash and mould" the sand, which holds its shape and never dries out!
You can use the stamps, mould trays and tools to create lots of different shapes and patterns; Little N really liked creating bricks and blocks out of the sand and then piling them up to knock them all down using the wrecking ball. He sits and plays for ages, there are over 35 moulds in the set so there is plenty of things for him to create.
It comes with one dizzy sand vehicle and there are other vehicles that you can buy seperately as well. From my point of view I love how easy it is to clear up after Little N has finished playing. As the sand is a special mouldable type, it sticks together and doesn't fall apart, so you don't end up with lots of grains everywhere!
The Fisher-Price R/C Super Scoop is hilarious and so much fun! It's a remote controlled vehicle which brings Scoop, Bob's best friend, to life with movement, lights and sounds. Using the remote control you can make him go forwards and backwards and also make him dig with his bucket. Then as an extra special trick, you can make him do a "scoop stand"! Scoop uses his digger to push himself onto his front and then bounces his digger up and down in the air! Be warned, it's quite a noisy toy, but it is so much fun. My boys love their Super Scoop, so much that they fight over who can play with it. We are having to work on the concept of taking turns!
To celebrate the launch of these cool toys and the summer holidays, an amazing 60 tonne sand sculpture of Bob and Scoop was created at Beach East by the Olympic Park in London. We didn't get the chance to go and see the sculpture for ourselves but it looks pretty incredible from the photos! Did you go? Oh, by the way, the new Bob the Builder TV series is on Channel 5 Milkshake each morning, your little ones won't want to miss out!
