Setting Up We were trying out the Ben 10 Costume Alien Force/Jet Ray Deluxe costume. It was very easy to get playing with the Ben 10 costume. To add to the fun it’s a reversible costume. It comes with one pair of reversible trousers: you use the blue trousers in Ben mode and the red side when you’re pretending to be Jet Ray. The rest of the costume isn’t reversible and you get a Ben top, a Jet Ray top with attached tail and wings, Jet Ray gloves, Jet Ray mask and an Omnitrix.
In Play If your child is a Ben 10 fan, then they will love this costume. H was really hyped up about it and wasn’t disappointed in the slightest. We found it easy to play with a friend as one child can pretend to be Ben and another Jet Ray. We added in some trousers from another costume for Ben when H’s friend came to play. H says it is ‘fantastic’.
What stopped play? Your child will need some help doing up the velcro as it fastens at the back. I think the sizing is a bit on the small side for the top. The Jet Ray top was a bit of a snug fit on H and he currently wears size 5-6 in tops. The trousers were more generous and should last a couple of years.
Overall This is a great costume and H has had loads of fun playing with it. It was priced at above £35 reflecting the quality and versitility of the costume. Currently it’s priced at £19.99 which is a bargain in my view.
