Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shellraiser Vehicle Review
If you have a child who likes the ever-popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, he or she will love this addition to the lineup of TMNT toys. It’s perfect for kids who already have the figures of the different Turtle characters because they can all fit inside.
It’s a well designed vehicle with a durable main body and certainly offers plenty to do. The Turtles can pile in through any of the doors and hatches and set off to battle evil wherever it may be found! Kids can replay scenes that they’ve seen in the movies, on TV or in books, or use their imagination to think up their own Ninja action.
As we’ve said, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures themselves are not included, so if your child doesn’t already have them, you’ll want to order them separately.
The 12 cm figures are the correct size for this vehicle.
Another point to note is that some things like the fitting of the doors and attaching the stickers are going to be difficult tasks for little kids and if your child is under about 8, you’re probably going to have to help them with that. The doors will fall off if they are not fitted correctly. Kids have to be careful with the moving parts that may break.
In summary, the Shellraiser vehicle is an excellent addition to the TMNT range for children of 4 and over. There’s plenty to play with and even if it could be a little more sturdy, it offers a lot of potential for imaginative play.
