The first thing I noticed was that it was all put together already. I love that the Imaginext sets put the parents first and make it easy for those little hands to start playing as soon as possible by making them pre-made and easy to take out of the box. I did have to pop some batteries in this set, but the instructions meant that this was done in a matter of minutes.
This Batman playset features a Gotham City playset, a Joker and Batman figure and a flight playset that spins 360 degrees at the turn of a button. As with all Imaginext sets, the playset is open allowing kids access to all the areas without having to open fiddly doors or move things around. This is fantastic as it means there is constant play without having the little ones should for help! Max loves to play independently and loves to problem solve his way out of situations.
Each Imaginext set comes with power pads. These power pads can be anything from hinges on trapdoors to hidden disc shooters. One of the pads on the Super-Flight Gotham City set triggers the 360 degree flight tower. This tower is amazing! It spins around at different levels and speeds and can sneakily allow Batman to kick the Joker down the trapdoor.
This is one playset that has kept Max amused for hours. Now he's getting older it's hard to drag him away from the lure of technology, but the Imaginext brand is one that can guarantee to keep him playing long past his bedtime! The fantastic thing about the sets is that the possibilites are endless. Max loves to join this set up with his Power Rangers Megazord to create an unbeatable team of heroes.
The set does take up a fair bit of room when it's in use, mainly because of the spin of the flight tower. But once it has been played with and ready to tidy away, it takes up no room at all and can be stored with the characters ready for the next adventure. At £49.99 for the set, I think it's a fantastic price for hours of fun. Imaginext is a brand that Max has been playing with for years already and I know he will still be playing with in years to come.
Thank you Fisher Price for the opportunity to add this fantastic Batman set to our collection, we love the endless hours of play and can't wait for our next Batfuelled adventure!
