Con with the full race track and two controllers. The track takes a maximum of about 5 minutes to set up and dismantle!!!

Youth #Gottit View:

This is the Scalextric set you never knew you needed. But maaaaaan, do you need it. Two of the most iconic cars in Movie and TV history finally get to battle it out for who’s fastest on a Scalextric set. It’s quick and easy to build the track and the cars are much easier to control and keep on the track compared with sets of the past. This toy/collectable has Christmas morning fun written all over it. Highly Recommended!!!

DKB – Pokémon Waffle Maker review by Con

Con with the Waffle mix. Waffle mix recipe included with in the instructions!!!

brush a small amount of cooking oil on the top and bottom of the waffle maker base plates!!!

Heat up the waffle maker until the green light comes on and then poor some mix in!!!

Once the green light illuminates the waffle is ready. If it’s not quite ready close the lid again until it is. Each waffle takes around one to two minutes to cook!!!

Available from all good retailers (8 Years +) 5 Stars

Youth #Gottit View:

This Pokémon waffle maker is a lot of fun. It’s easy to use and created the perfect waffle within minutes. Be aware this is a kitchen appliance and not a toy. The majority of waffle maker manufactures recommend 8 years + for use.

Playmobil – Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise

Playmobil – Star Trek U.S.S Enterprise review by Harrison

Star Trek as a franchise has seen a massive surge in popularity in recent years with the release of the last three movies and streaming shows such as Discovery, Picard Five years.

Star Trek’s long term popularity has spawned countless forms of merchandise over the years from cosplay costumes to mugs with the faces of your favorite Captain. But to this day there has never been a must own collectible to rival this latest offering from Playmobil. 

The new Playmobil U.S.S Enterprise is approximately one metre in length, has interactive sounds and lights, plus all of the key characters from the original Star Trek series.  And if that’s not enough, the ships controls and lights are interactive with a free downloadable app.  

U.S.S Enterprise Bridge and Figures

The detail to the Enterprise bridge is insane, it looks just like the set Kirk and crew used from the series. I love the lenticular stickers for the closing door and the flight screen, it gives the deck a really authentic cool look. 

It comes with so many figures – Captain James Tiberius Kirk, Spock, Leonard H. ‘Bones’ McCoy, Montgomery ‘Scotty’ Scott, Nvota Uhura, Hikara Sulu, Pavel Chekov, as well as five tiny Tribbles. 

U.S.S Enterprise Engine Room

I particularly like the Scotty figure and his Engine room section and how the ‘On Button’ for the entire model is within this section. That’s a really lovely touch. 

The lighting and sounds are really great. They compliment the design of the ship and every detail is authentic to the original screen used Enterprise. 

Interactive Playmobil Star Trek App

The model has such a wide number of sounds and light effects that can be controlled by an exclusive Playmobil Star Trek App, making this Enterprise the perfect mix between being a display model for adult collectors and a playable toy for youngsters.

Displaying the U.S.S Enterprise

I love the main stand, its really cool and very stylised. The golden stand really helps to make it look like a collectable model and there’s even an option to suspend it from the ceiling for anyone who’s always dreamed of owning a large Enterprise in full flight for their collectors den. 

This model is really beautifully made and stunning to look at. The original series Enterprise was so simplistic in its design on the outside with its plain white shell and the different windows. It was always really slick and clean, Playmobil have captures this perfectly with this toy.

Also it doesn’t have so many small parts that an adult fan would be scared of their children playing with it, fearing something may be lost or broken. But at the same time it has the right amount of parts that it can be both a family toy and a visually stunning ornament. 

This is a brilliant celebration of the world of Star Trek and a perfect introduction to any older fans families to why we’re still enjoying the these wonderful characters and their space adventures Fifty Five years on!!!

If you’re a Star Trek fan, this is the ultimate showpiece collectable and a must own for any die hard fan. Whatever your age, you will find yourself playing with this toy. Highly Recommended!!!
