~ What ~
Made of colorful non-toxic ABS plastic, this 8-piece toy set contains 4 inertial-driven planes and 4 pull-back driven planes. Measuring from 3.5 by 2.8 by 2.5 to 3.8 by 3.5 by 0.8 inches, they are easy for a young child to hold. All items arrive in individual bags within a cellophane bag, ready for giving.
~ Why ~
Our 3-year-old grandson loves anything to do with flying, so this set is wonderful with its planes in several different styles. I like that there are prop, biplanes, seaplanes, and jets in the mix. I like that 4 of them can be pulled back and let go to move forward without effort while others can be rolled along. The larger ones have 3 "propellers" each that can be ejected when a button is pressed and shoot out of the front of the plane. Being made out of plastic not metal, they will not rust.
~ Why Not ~
Some may not realize how small items are, but they are large enough that one cannot choke on them unless the parts break off. Others may find it too hard to pull back the vehicle on a hard, flat surface, although little energy is required. They do not work on carpet. The propellers that shoot out could get lost or hurt someone if one is not careful.
~ Wish ~
It would be nice if the 2 moving styles were sold as groups of 4 or 8 each so one could buy only one type.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for a set of fun airplanes that are small yet detailed, these will keep a future pilot occupied for hours.
Thanks for 3 Otters for this discounted product that I am under no obligation to evaluate.
