I thoroughly endorse educational toys – I am a teacher after all. But, I also realise the importance of imaginative play – living in an imaginary world of super heroes and villians!
I mean after all – you are only a child once in your lifetime. Unless of course you never grow up…
Ethan has a very imaginative mind. On the way to school, he is either Ben10 or one of the Transformers or Iron Man and the like. Of late though, he has been sporting this rather fetching bandana and a Ninjato. Hmmmm….wonder who he is. Any guesses?
You guessed it right. He is Leonardo, one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
We have a lot of ‘Hiiiiiii – ya’ and fight stances all day. This Turtle Ninja Combat Gear dress up set is really cool and I love the Ninjato – it is so well made and Ethan loves playing with it. It also comes with two shooting stars.
The set is priced at £14.99 and is great for a dress up day at school.
And yes we also have our very own Leonardo to add to the fun.
And no ordinary figure at that. This Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Power Sound FX has some awesome sound effects to accompany it. Battle phrases like ‘Hiiiii-ya’ and ‘I’m Invincible’ are delivered in style that only the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles can get away with.
They have a patented coil activation system in their hands and legs so all you need do is pull back and hold its arm leg to hear reverberating sounds. He has been spending a lot of time fighting the baddies with it and using it with the Pizza Playset that we reviewed previously.
The action figure is well made and I am sure that any ninja turtle fan will love this. It is a figure that is identical to Leonardo on the television series with the headband and the ninjato.
It is priced at £14.99 and is good value for money.
Both the products are perfect for imaginative play and for role play and will provide hours of playing fun.
We particularly love the attention to detail with both the products and Ethan has been enjoying playing with it especially since it is half-term.
