Playmobil Top Agents – Remote Control Robot Gangster SUV and Spying Set Review
A Spying set for a Robot Gangster SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle for all you non Yank speakers out there) from Playmobil? I was a bit surprised by this too….but, it is pretty cool! Not sure if the playability factor will wear off quickly, but it instanstly became a much played with and covetted toy!
So what is in the box? First off, you have to build the SUV, pretty simple, instructions are reasonable, as with all PLaymobil products – but invariably Mum or Dad will end up putting it together. Once its built, and this included a remote control pack that provides powered wheel and a remote control module, plus controller, it looks good and seems fairly robust. The camera unit is then inserted into the passengers seat and the vehicle is ready to go!
Once you set it off and drive it around, it is quite easy to see, from a SUV passengers point of view, where the SUV is going, so you can watch it on the small remote screen and drive it off round the corner….how cool is that? The batteries last a reasonable time and the camera switches itself off if it senses it has been inactive for a while.
In summary, a good toy, but I am not sure it is worth the expense when you add the 3 components together – almost £120! But, if you can afford it, the uses could be endless!
