Scooby Scooby Doo, where are you?
This song covers what the playhouse is all about. The kids are big Scooby fans and watch the cartoon all the time. They find all the scary bits most interesting and think Scooby is hilarious. We’ve even attended a Scooby Do Live performance and that was a big hit.
They were very excited to get to review this Scooby Doo Mystery Mansion playset from Character. It has a lot of tricks and surprises perfect to recreate a story from the cartoon series.
First glimpse and it does look spooky with the bats on it and the purple and green colouring.
The doors can suddenly be flung open at the touch of a button (the moment you land on the top step – before you enter)
The chandelier can be pulled up and lowered to fall on Scooby’s head. Ouch!!
The secret trap door has a pair of ghostly hands to grip your legs! Eek!
Under the staircase there is a cupboard that houses a hideous clown to scare you.
Take a trip upstairs to look in the mirror and you may find yourself falling to the ground as a trap door opens.
Lastly, be careful as the house has a cannon that works. Fire it from the inside or remove the window and turn it around to fire at the impending enemy.
If this doesn’t sound exciting, I don’t know what does.
Oh hang on – there is also a poseable figure of Scooby Doo. This is a nice touch, as there are some houses that do come without characters and that can be disappointing for children.
The playset is priced at £29,99 and though it is on the expensive side, the product is well made and has a lot of thrilling aspects for the children. It could have been priced slightly lower though, in my opinion.
All said, it is a great playset for Scooby fans and can provide many hours of imaginative play.
