Screechers Wild – The Race Car Machine Hybrids – Review

Screechers Wild! are the multi tasking race car vehicles that transform into creatures with explosive 360-degree flip morphing action.  They turn in an instant and my 7yr old was hooked once he tried them out and has been playing with them ever since.

With three different levels of vehicles in the range along with a Rapid Disc Blaster and a Speed Launcher there is much fun to have with these all action ready to go toys.

The car’s act as a normal toy car until they drive into or have a disc spun at them through the disc launcher.  This is when they magic happens and within the blink of an eye, each vehicle instantly transforms into a beast, the higher the level of vehicle the more complex the beast is.  Our orange and black level 2 vehicle turns into a dinosaur and is one of my boy’s favourites. The disc blaster is a funnel shaped device that you can stack full of discs.  Upon pushing the plunger a disc fires out and if it hits one of your vehicles at the front it instantly transforms it. There are various coloured discs and my boy was particularly pleased to have a silver and gold one in his set.

The speed launcher is another fabulous device that sends your car shooting across the room.  So if, as my 7yr old likes to do, you line a row of discs up and shoot your car towards them, it’s likely to hit one and transform as it hits it.  He finds it amazing watching them flip in and instant and morph into something else.

The Screechers toys have proved to be a massive hit with my boy and are definitely up there with his top toys.  The are played with everyday which is a good sign and he loves to tell anyone who visits all about them and give them a demonstration.

These toys are packed full of action and keep kids busy with them whizzing across the floor.

From what I have seen so far interest is maintained and these toys are something kids will go back to again and again for lots of fun and action play.  If you haven’t caught them already, then be sure to check out Screechers – the cars that flip in an instant from car to beast mode!

Blaze and the Monster Machines Toys – Review

Blaze and the Monster Machines is a highly successful new programme on Nick Jr that has my little boy gripped and I’m even surprised to say my daughter loves watching it too!  Following on from a successful Twitter party a few days ago with @ukmumstv where the toys were introduced and we did some fabulous STEM activities based around the toys, we’ve now got an opportunity to look at the toys more closely.

First up is the hugely popular Transforming Blaze Jet (from £15).  This is a large, very sturdy plastic toy from Fisher Price.  When you lift it off the ground it’s wings automatically pop out enabling it to fly.  There are also multiple sounds that can be activated by pressing the large button on it’s bonnet.

The diecast character cars (£4.99) are a really good size, bigger than your usual small car and big chunky wheels to help them get around.  These are perfect for little hands, and great for not losing under the sofa!  These have been highly successful with my little boy who just loves playing with them to create an adventure with Blaze.

The Blaze Turbo Launcher (£12.99) has proved a really fun toy.  Coming with a diecast Blaze and two accessories, a helicopter and hang glider topper that simply press onto the top of Blaze.  The launcher itself is easy to use and you just slide the car back and press the button and off Blaze goes, in fact any of the diecast cars can be used with this.

We had great fun at our twitter party incorporating these toys in our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Science) activities, building obstacle courses for Blaze and friends.  We even decorated a biscuit to look like a big monster wheel!  It’s great to incorporate toys into activities as it is something different for the children to do, adds play value and the children learn things without realising.

As you can see we had a lot of fun with the Blaze and the Monster Machine toys.  They were a big hit with all here and the tv programme continues to be watched regularly.

Be sure to check out Nick Jr and Fisher Price for more fun and info.
