Our testers loved that these figures and vehicles are built tough for lots of play, Great for any child who enjoys space-themed vehicle play - and of course, they're especially fun for Star Wars fans. Our testers have the Snow Speeder, which fits a figure in the cockpit and has a couple of opening exterior hatches. And, when not being flown in a child's hand, the Speeder also rolls nicely across smooth surfaces. NOTE: Despite packaging that says "working harpoon & tow cable!", our testing families could see no "launching" mechanism (other than a child flicking it with a finger).
WHAT THE KIDS SAY
I didn't really play with this one. I thought it was boring. I rolled it around but couldn't even shoot with it. Doors open and the men go in, that's it.
I like that I can fly around or like Star Wars , have a big fight! I like having a ot of StarWars spaceship it makes for a better battle.
WHAT ADULTS THINK
The girls (ages 5 and 3) really love playing with the Jedi Force Snowspeeder but even more so the little characters that came with it....Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. They put the characters in the ship and pretended to fly it around or driving since it also has wheels. Most of the play has been with the characters rather than the ship. They like to play with the tow cable that is attached. My son(age 7) is a fan of Star Wars and didn't show much interest in the vehicle but likes to play with the characters.
I didn't find this one to be a big hit in our house. It didn't do very much, and it kept coming apart. That, along with the fact that my 5 year old wasn't very familiar with Star Wars to start with, made this one stay in the toy box.
tough spaceship, great as a stand alone and wonderful with the rest of the Star Wars line. It's nice to have Star Wars toys that I am not afraid will break as they are made for younger kids to play with and not just to have as a collection.
