When it first arrived I thought it was much bigger than I had expected. I liked how bright it looked and the accessories that came with it. I love the concept, particularly because my husband is in the building trade. It is a common interest between my son and Daddy so I was excited for him my son to try it out and be like Daddy. Instructions very simple to understand. My son understood when I read the instructions and got straight to work drilling. My son found it very easy to snap pieces together and loved using the drill. He said he felt like Daddy and took it everywhere with him. My son loved playing with it, taking it apart and putting it back together. It was a great role play toy and he even played with it with his toy dinosaurs and made “dinosaur land rescue helicopter”. I missed the part on the instructions outlining the pilot has changeable expressions and doubles as a tool, but my son found it out and loved changing it over for different parts of his game. It certainly kept my son entertained not just for the day, he has not stopped playing with it!! It comes out with different toys he plays with. My son plays with this game all the time. My son has been wanting tools like daddy for ages and we never got round to getting him anything. This has been perfect. It makes him feel like Daddy but also such a fun toy to play with. This is a great way to introduce early STEM skills. It makes their brains work to get the drill working and making the screw spin the correct way. My son loved the drill. I liked the box that it can be used to pack the toy away but also be used as part of the game. This is great value for money.  Very good quality and lots of play has been had in our house yet still looks brand new. I would buy more as my son loves it and to add more to the collection is a must. It’s great quality and great fun. I would recommend because it’s a great fun toy.  We loved this toy in our house, it has kept  us all entertained for hours. We loved this toy. It’s eye catching fun to play with and a great quality.

I thought the toy looked fun. We’ve had toy drills before now, but we’ve never seen drills which actually work! What better way to help a child feel like they can really copy their grownups. I loved the concept. It takes the toy and its playability to a whole new level, giving not only imaginative play, but also a whole new level of play with the drill, which can also help with hand eye co-ordination. The instructions were very easy to understand. He needed a little bit of help, but only because he doesn’t like to pay attention to instructions! He was much more interested in the working drill and running around “drilling” the walls! He found the pieces nice and easy to snap the pieces together and absolutely loved the drill. He not only used the drill and bolts on the actual helicopter, but pinched them to try to use on his workbench! He also kept fixing my “broken” walls and doors! He loves toys where he can use his imagination, and he was using the helicopter and characters to rescue his other toys from bad guys! It fit in well with his other toys, being a vehicle, so he was very happy. He doesn’t really pay much attention to the expression on toys, but he absolutely loves it when they can “do” other things. When he figured out the figures turned into tools, he decided he was going to be a proper builder and set about fixing the house! It definitely kept him entertained, although perhaps not in the way intended. He was using the component parts for separate imaginative play, but I feel like that shows how well thought out the toy was. He played with it on and off every few days from when it arrived. He still likes to play with it now even though he’s had it for a few months. It definitely sparked his imagination and he played at being a builder quite a lot with his new tools! It’s great to watch him also using the helicopter and figures alongside his other toys, rescuing and fighting bad guys! I think this is a great way to introduce a child to STEM skills. The toy was very unique which really set it apart from other toys, and can certainly set a child down the path of science and technology interests. The working drill was by far his favourite part! We expected this as he loves it when toys “do” things. I also thought the working drill was the best part. It can really make a child feel grown up, pretending to be like daddy fixing the house! It is quite expensive compared to similar sized toys, but a lot of thought has gone into it and it really did spark some amazing imagination, so I think it is worth it.  It is made for small hands and is very well constructed. I think it would manage with rough handed children as it is quite sturdy. A toy that sparks imaginative play over and over again is definitely worth investing in. With this in mind, I would certainly consider purchasing more, not just for my child, but for other children too. I would highly recommend. This toy isn’t just a run of the mill sort of toy. It is well thought out and different and i think it would be appreciated by friends and family. It really does tick all the boxes of a good toy. It is a chunky, sturdy construction, easy for a child to pull apart and put back together, but also has that little something that sets it apart from other toys. It’s also suitable for boys and girls. This was a great toy to test. It was great to play with the toy as it came, but the component parts were also played with separately, in other imaginative play. I especially loved how play was only limited by my child’s imagination. I couldn’t find anything we didn’t like about it, other than i don’t think it would be something a seven year old would play with (i may yet be wrong on that, only time will tell!). Overall, highly recommended! Laura White – Charlie 6 Years

The packaging was nice and I like that the packaging can be used to create a scene for the helicopter. It clearly shows what is in the package and is bright and colourful. I like that the child can assemble the toy themselves and use the mini drill that is included. The helicopter is simple to build but adds to the play value. The box unfolds to make a scene to play with. I like that this saves wastage. The helicopter is also a fun role play toy as well as a construction toy. The instructions are simple and easy to follow. My son found the helicopter fairly easy to build. He did have to think about but I like that he was challenged but not frustrated. My son loved the drill. He found it easy to use and really enjoyed building the helicopter and also taking it apart to build again. He was able to snap the parts together easily. The drill added extra play to role play as the helicopter could get fixed when it crashed. My son enjoyed having a pilot for the helicopter. He enjoyed using the scenery from the box to create his own stories. He loved being able to fix the helicopter when it needed (pretend) fixing and it was a good size to use alongside some of his other toys. My son enjoyed changing Buddy’s expression. It added to his games. He didn’t really use him as a tool he preferred to use him as a person. My son was entertained for a significant length of time. He had the enjoyment of building it and then role play so his attention was kept for an extended period of time. My child has played with this toys most days he enjoys playing with the drill and role  playing. He has a number of vehicles and he enjoys playing with the helicopter alongside these toys. I agree that it does inspire role play and encourages creative play. The drill adds to imaginative games. It does aid his construction skills but I would like it if the helicopter had some different ways to build it or optional parts so he could spend more time in the construction. I agree that this toy introduces STEM skills by making construction fun and enjoyable. My son loved the drill/screwdriver. And playing with it to build and rebuild the helicopter. I like that the packaging can be used. I also like that it combines imagination and construction. I think this toy is good value for money and is good quality. The helicopter is made out of good quality plastic. It is well designed and hardwearing. The packaging is cleverly designed and can be used as a scene to play with the helicopter over all the quality is great. I would purchase more.  I have seen that there are more toys in the range. Including a race car and space ship so I would definitely buy these for my son. I would buy the helicopter as gifts for friends. I would recommend this as a gift. It is something that is a little bit more exciting and educational that a standard vehicle but good quality and can withstand clumsy hands playing with it. The helicopter is good quality and offers a two ways to play, construction and imaginative play. It is good value for money and I love that even the box can be reused. I would like their to be some extra parts to add choice whilst building. But other than that it is a great toy. Overall my son has played with this toy a lot. It has been in the garden and the bath and has not broken. It is well made and lots of fun. Sarah Cummins – Samuel 5 Years
