Tom and Jerry Tricky Trap House from Flair is a calamity filled house of traps and jokes that keep Tom and Jerry on the tails of each other as they frantically chase each other around. Tom and Jerry are one of my childhood cartoon memories, always on for five minutes in between other things that always captured and en-tranced both me and my younger brother.
The Tom and Jerry Tricky Trap House is a fold out playset house with 10 mechanical traps along with 2 character figures, Tom and Jerry.
Upon hearing about this house I thought it’d be right up Mister B’s street, being the little joker that he is and I wasn’t wrong. His eyes lit up when he saw it and being only vaguely aware of Tom and Jerry beforehand, he soon grasped the idea and had poor Jerry being chased around the house by Tom!!
The house opens up to reveal two floors on each side with numerous traps awaiting our two friends Tom and Jerry. I guided Mister B around the various traps available which he found really exciting and couldn’t wait to begin play. I had to be Jerry and he was Tom as he chased me round the house, his favourite was trapping me under the drop down chandelier!
There are various traps across the house such as the drop down chandelier, a drop floor shower, a smash through door, a drop leg piano, a pop out fridge, a hidey hole in the roof with drop through floor, a flip up bed, a hide behind sofa and a blast off rocket. Outside there is also a swing seat that once you sit on, it snaps in half!!
Mister B loved the blast off rocket and that led to hours of fun, putting either Tom or Jerry inside and flying it across the front room. He particularly thought it was hilarious blasting Jerry into space when mummy was being Tom and laughing at me as the rocket flew through the sky as he escaped and poor Tom was stuck on the ground!
The quality of the playset is a little less than I was expecting and does look at bit plasticy and cheap. We also had the shower wall fall off which I luckily mended as Mister B is rather fond of letting someone fall through the floor of the shower!
Saying that, the quality didn’t bother Mister B who did actually have endless fun with this and has thoroughly enjoyed playing with it as I thought he would. He had a constant grin on his face whilst playing and found it hilarious every time he trapped someone, declaring himself the winner!!
The Tom and Jerry playset has proved to be lots of fun and kept Mister B entertained, I like the way it folds up and it isn’t overly big so doesn’t take up too much room. Make sure you put both Tom and Jerry inside when packing away so they are always there when you want to play. Jerry is quite small so can easily get mislaid amongst other toys.
Retailing around the £24.99 mark, I guess it’s a fair price for what you get.
We’ve had lots of fun with the Tom and Jerry Tricky Trap House, more than I expected so for me it’s a been a good value toy that has encouraged a lot of imaginative play. I think any little Tom and Jerry fan would be happy to receive this if they enjoy the antics they get up to and want to replicate them. Mister B certainly gives this a big thumbs up!
All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the playset in order to write the review.
