Blaze and The Monster Machines Light & Launch Hyper Loop Play-set Review


Light & Launch Hyper Loop is a blaze and the monster machines track set that includes a vehicle launcher that spins in a 360-degree loop, sending blaze through 9 different stunt combinations and racing through the finish line!


If Ru isn't watching Blaze on Nickelodeon he's watching it on his iPad.
So when asked if we wanted to try out the Light & Loop Hyper Launch I knew I had to say yes.
Anything that lights up and launches cars into the air is always going to be a winner with Ru and when its a character that he loves its going to be a double winner!

The playset comes in pieces but its pretty simple to put together and most part just click together.
It took me about 5 minutes to build. Ru strangely enough was rather patient and sat watching and trying to help out.


Key Features:

·         Place Blaze in the Hyper Loop and charge it up using the lever to activate the Speed Lights
·         Press the release button and the Hyper Loop whips Blaze into an awesome 360-degree rotation and sends him blazing down the track
·         Move the towers to different points on the playset for 9 different combinations

Suitable for ages 3+


As soon as it was built Rupert was eager to get playing.
Once I had shown him how to turn the wheel, he was happily able to do it all on his own.
He loved watching Blaze fly through the sky.

Ru experimented with the different ramp positions to see what the different results would be, but he preferred it when the ramp was down and Blaze could do a little jump off it.

Ru being the dare devil that he is, had the play-set on the edge of the kitchen table and got Blaze to really fly off the end, he flew so fast he nearly reached the sofa!
I don't think I've ever heard him laugh so hard!

When the twins got home from school, Ru showed them how to operate it and they were very impressed with it, lining up to take turns in pressing the launch button.
Oscar liked lighting up the lights and Alex ever lined a few cars at the end of the run way for Blaze to jump over.
Blaze managed at least 5 cars!



Your child can also attach the light & launch hyper loop to the tunnels that come with any of light rider vehicles, as well as other blaze playsets and accessories. 
Each sold separately and subject to availability. 
You can buy the Light & Launch play-set from Argos for £24.99
It would make a fantastic birthday present, or even a special present for when your child has done something special.

Golden Bear Top Toys For 2017

Last week I was invited along to the Toy Fair by Golden Bear Toys
I worked with Golden Bear a lot last year, so I was pretty excited to see what was in store.



Any meeting that starts with Prosecco and cake is a winner for me!
After an introduction to all the PR's I've had a pleasure of working with, we got the chance to meet the one and only Mr Tumble - I returned home a legend, the boys were all very impressed to see a picture of me and Mr Tumble.


We were then shown around the stands to see all the new toys that will be available this year.
I was like a kid in a toy shop, there was just so many to look at, the boys would have been in toy heaven if they had come along!


To give you a little taster of what I saw, I'm able to share some of the toys with you!

Mr Tumble -
Fans of Mr. Tumble will love the new interactive Sing Along with Mr. Tumble (RRP £29.99) soft toy.  Based around the Hello, Hello song performed by Mr. Tumble at the beginning of each episode of Something Special, Sing Along with Mr. Tumble features fun music and movement which encourages children to sing along and join in – just like in the TV show!  
Made in bright eye-catching colours, Mr. Tumble also replicates his signature friendly wave as he sings, and his nose lights up for added fun! 

Twirly Woos -

Encourage role play and movement with the Twirlywoos Musical Statues Great BigHoo (RRP £34.99)!  Watch as Great BigHoo dances to the iconic Twirlywoos music, and for more fun switch to Musical Statues mode and enjoy a classic game of musical statues!  Dance along to the music, but make sure you stop dancing when he stops!

In The Night Garden -
Older In the Night Garden fans will love the In the Night Garden Pull-along Ninky Nonk Wobble Train (RRP £24.99). The chunky and tough train is brightly coloured and perfect for indoor and outdoor play. Pull the train along and watch as the crazy train wobbles from side to side, just like it does in the TV show!    

Sleep Tight All Night.


Two new characters are being introduced to the Sleep Tight All Night Gang.
The one and only Batman and a super cute Dinosaur.
If you aren't too sure what Sleep Tight All Night teddies are all about, you can read my review here.

 DC Super Friends 


Golden Bear are all set for a Super spring with the launch of their new DC Super Friends range!
Perfect for the little DC comic fans!
A fun twist on the traditional game of catch, the DC Super Friends Slingable Fun Sounds Super Friends (RRP £7.99) are an imaginative gift for both children and adults alike!

Other toys to keep an eye out for this year are -

Bush Baby World Toys,

 My First JCB Tough Talkers,
Go Mini Toys,
In The Night Garden Soft Toys for ages 0+,
and a few more surprise!


I had a fab time seeing all the new toys and finally getting to finally getting to meet in person some of  the PR's I have worked with over the last year.

Thanks for inviting me along!
