If there’s one film which is guaranteed to entertain the whole family, it’s Despicable Me. We have been huge fans since the very first movie, following the adventures of Gru, laughing at the crazy little minions and admiring the girls favourite character, Fluffy. With Despicable 3 out at the cinema earlier this month we couldn’t wait to see it, and it didn’t disappoint. In fact I would go as far as saying that, for me personally, it’s my favourite of the three!
With Despicable 3 reigniting the children’s obsession, you can imagine their excitement when the lovely people at Bladez Toyz sent us the most adorable radio control jumbo inflatable Fluffy!
We’ve had a few radio control toys in the past that have been great in theory but, for little hands, the handset itself has been too tricky. The fact that this is aimed at children aged three years and over means that it has been designed with exactly that in mind, and the remote couldn’t be easier to use. With a 360 degree spin at the touch of a button, as well as the basic forward and back, the children had no issues whatsoever with the handset, the only issue we had was learning to be a little patient whilst they waited for their turn!
We love that Fluffy works just as well on carpet as it does laminate, and even outside on the patio too. We also love that because it is so lightweight it goes quite fast, so the children had so much fun chasing each other around the house, squealing with excitement as they ran away from it. I was also pleased that because it’s an inflatable, every time they hit my skirting boards or my glass TV cabinet, I didn’t flinch in fear of chipped paint or a nasty accident, as it simply bumped straight back off!
I also love that, despite being such a great size, Fluffy can also be deflated. The children have so many big toys which can’t be placed away in a cupboard or pushed under the bed when we have guests over, so this was such a refreshing change! It’s also come at a great time for us going away on holiday next week and can easily be packed away in the suitcase when the children inevitably ask to take a selection of toys from home.
We couldn’t find a single thing that we disliked about this toy and currently at just £24.99 at The Entertainer I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it, and for those who are minion mad there is also a Mel and Tom version!
