Disclosure: I received this product in exchange for an honest review.
I like to come up with several indoor play ideas during the winter because it is so hard for us to get outside. In Nebraska we tend to have such cold, blustery winds that no one wants to be outside in. So, on chilly days, we spend our time discovering new ways to learn, have fun, and spend time together.
Lately, we’ve been enjoying indoor play with the Toy Story Rocket Rumble Zing-Ems Playset. This set is so much for for imaginative play and has kept my daughter busy for hours. She loves to pull back the lever and launch Buzz Lightyear and his friends onto the track, giving them obstacles to maneuver around on their way around.
The obstacle course was very easy to put together. It doesn’t take batteries, which is a definite plus in my opinion.
The figurines are about two inches tall and come on rollers, so they can roll around the track. They are very easy to roll around without tipping over.
My daughter figured out how to play with this immediately. She lined up the figures in the launcher and started to shoot them up the track. Hearing her giggle and start conversations between Buzz and the other figurines was delightful for me. I love when she has so much fun interacting with new toys.
Some ideas that we have tried with this playset include:
- Setting a timer to see how many times the figurines make it around the track in one minute.
- Counting the number of different directions each figurine takes as it goes up the track.
- Setting up different obstacles to see if the characters can make it through.
- Having the figurines race each other on the track.
So far we have had nothing but fun with this playset.
You can get the Toy Story Zing-Ems Playset (Track and 1 figure) at Walmart, and additional retailers. This playset is for ages 4 and up.
