Tuesday Toy Review- Revell X Ray Horse!
February 1, 2011 § Leave a comment
First up for 2011 is Revell’s new X Ray Horse, as part of their new X Ray range, which also includes a frog, tarantula, shark and crocodile.
Small boy and I were *very* excited about this one and we opened the box with glee. The basic premise is that you get half an animal, looking like normal, and the other half has transparent ‘skin’ and you have to put all the organs in and then complete the skeleton around it.
Small boy loved looking at, and fiddling with the organs and the bones. He tried to guess what they were and we then looked them up in the information booklet to see what they were, and what they did, as well as finding out some fascinating facts. Although I have to say we could probably have done without detailed descriptions of the function of a rectum and an anus. No, I am not kidding.
We did have great fun putting it together, but my one complaint about the toy is that the instructions telling you what went where were the classic example of a multi-language packaging failure. To avoid confusion, there were no words on the description, just unfathomable pictures- imagine an IKEA instruction leaflet, but ten times worse. It would have been better to have not had any instructions and just presented it as a jigsaw, as that is what we ended up doing anyway.
The X Ray horse, and Frog, Tarantula, Shark and Crocodile have an RRP of £16.99are available here
