In Play No sooner were they out of the packaging and they were whisked away. H has quite a lot of Bob the Builder vehicles and figures already so the new playsets were used alongside these and added a new dimension to his old toys, as well as providing new scenarios for play. We got the toys out for the first time when H had his friend (also 5 years old) round to play. They were occupied with them for ages and H has returned many times to these toys over the last few days.
The Builder’s Yard toy includes a Bob the Builder figure and Bob can get busy collecting concrete in the wheelbarrow. The Supplier’s Yard comes with a Charlie figure and children can load up pallets and pile up building materials. I loved the way Bob can dig up the pavement to expose pipework beneath.
What stopped play? The packaging was a bit of a pain to get off, but that only happens once. I think a child would get more out of these sets if he or she had some Bob toys already to team up with the play sets.
Overall A popular and fun addition to the Bob the Builder toy range.
