Recently Callum was sent the new Scooby Doo Mystery Machine play set from Character Building to review. As he is a huge fan of Scooby Doo and the gang this product went down great with him. I must admit he was one of my favourites growing up too and I never grew bored of those pesky kids solving them mysteries over and over again. The boys don’t believe me when I tell them that Scooby is almost as old as their Nanna.
The play set is aimed at boys aged 5 and above. It contains 198 pieces. I thought it was quite time consuming to create the play set but then again this could be a sign of good value for money as it kept callum entertained for an hour and a half whilst he found the right bits and put them together.
The Mystery Machine Playset once constructed opens to reveal a control centre featuring spooky specimen jars and a monster radar. You can also make a leaf trap by reusing the bricks.
The play set also includes a Scooby Doo and Fred with his mystery motorbike that fits into the back of the van! You can buy other play sets and characters to go with the Mystery Machine too. This play set is available from all good toy retailers and priced around £19.99. Prices may vary depending on the store you choose to purchase it from.
Once the Mystery Machine was constructed the last finishing touch to be added was the stickers. Callum asked me to put these on for him as they were quite tricky for him to peel off and put in the right place.
