I have written about these guys before – known as Stikbots my pair have been fans of these poseable figures for some time. The Stikbots have suction cups on their hands and feet and can be positioned in many ways. We were sent the farm set to try out recently and my pair didn’t hesitate to get stuck in!
This is a build-your-own farm themed movie set made up of a farm house, a farm truck, picnic table, wheelbarrow, tractor and vegetable patch. In addition you get one StikBot with a sheet of farm clothes stickers and 12 farm accessories – spade, saw and watering can etc. The purpose of the toy is to get imaginations in full swing to build a short movie around the theme of the farm with the props, movie set etc. You simply download the app which is free on Apple and Android and your creations can then be shared online using the hashtag #StikBot. There is a large community of #Stikbot fans sharing their creations on line and on You Tube.
What we thought?
As you can see from our previous review, we have been long time fans of Stikbots so this was always going to be a hit. If I had to be critical, I think another Stikbot in the set would really add value. It was ok for us as we had many of them as the kids were already fans thus making movie scenes easy and fun. In terms of building the movie set itself this was really easy as the elements were pre numbered making it very straight forward for even the creatively challenged like myself.
My pair have been enjoying using the set with their other toys as well as its surprising durable, even surviving my Mr Destruction’s notoriously rough play!! Its no secret I am a huge fan of imaginative play and this certainly lives up to that. Like the other Stikbot’s in our house I can see this being played with for some time to come in the Mamma Fairy house.
Note: We were sent the Stikbot Farm set for review however all view are mine of the boys where appropriate.
