You can tell that Christmas is just around the corner (kind of) because we’ve got some brilliant toys to review and among them, this brilliant CAT Buildin’ Crew Take-a-Part Buddy, Movin’ Morgan.
Now I am well aware that the small one would go nuts for this….but shhhh – he’s going to get it for Christmas! So I pulled in the big one to put it through its paces. She’s very handy at times.
Here is our Take-a-Part Buddy in his box:
However, as well as being good for zooming across the floor (or sofa) as illustrated by my lovely assistant…
…The Take-a-part Buddies range which includes both Movin’ Morgan and his friend, Haulin’ Harry, has an extra level of fun, because as the name suggestions you can take it apart… and put it back together!
You can’t take the screws out completely, which is good because they would inevitably end up lost being small and er, losable, but the pieces you can remove are to big to misplace easily.
Here is a quick video of the big one taking apart the Take-a-Part Buddy:
Never fear though, it’s very simple to put back together! It’s a great toy for learning and developing co-ordination, and the big one was very reluctant to put it away, which is brilliant as up until now she’s eschewed anything vaguely stereotypically ‘boyish’. Maybe she’s not going to be a princess after all.Aimed at ages 3+, with an RRP of £19,99, the Take-a-Part Buddies will be available from Morrisons, Toymaster and Debenhams.
We received the CAT Buildin’ Crew Take-a-Part Buddies digger from Toy State for free for the purposes of this review, but of course the words and pictures are all mine.
