Little Boy (3) loves cars and racing and crashing things. You can imagine his delight then when we were sent this great Monster Smash Ups toy to review.
It’s a robust car that comes apart on impact. So you crash it into a wall and pieces fly off. If you hit the front bumper bar the driver will eject. Now this just means pure joy for my little boy who loves crashing things and putting them back together!
The car charges via a USB which is great as it means that you don’t end up using millions of expensive batteries. You get about 30 minutes use from one 90 minute charge. 30 minutes is plenty of time to play with it before he gets bored. The remote takes two AA batteries but they last quite a while.
Little Boy finds it absolutely hilarious when he crashes it and the driver flies out! He soon learnt where the best place to crash him into was! It’s also nice that he doesn’t have to worry about controlling it properly – it’s designed to be crashed into walls and things!
In my opinion this is a really robust car which is easy for little ones to control and is well worth the money. It’s provided hours of entertainment already and it’s definitely a bonus that you can charge it via USB.
Monster Smash Ups are available in blue, yellow and red and have a RRP of £34.99 but they are a bit cheaper on Amazon at the moment.
