Got a kid who loves DC Super Friends (or superhero in general)? Got a kid who loves race cars?
Yeah? GREAT! Then this is the review for you!
The boys have sent a selection of the brand new DC Super Friends Herodrive vehicles to review, and let’s be honest, we all know they’d be an instant hit – especially with Lamb!
The Herodrive Batman Racer. This is the biggest of the four we were sent. The car has flashing lights as well as sounds, and what makes it extra special is the wings that pop out the sides! Not only that but if you push the button at the back of the car it goes along on its own!
We found it only works on hard floor and not carpet, so the boys had raced up and down the kitchen!
Next up is the Herodrive Mash Machines – a mix up of your favourite superheros and urban vehicles. Lamb and Bear were send the Superman Fire Engine and Batman Police Car. These are there smaller toys of the range and perfect for littler hands. They are definitely Bears favourite.
These exciting push along cars offer hours of racing with flashing lights and superhero sounds.
Finally we move on to Lambs favourite, the Herodrive Signal Squad. Along with sounds, this vehicle has an illuminated logo, perfect for signalling their favourite superhero! Lamb was send the Superman version but has since discovered there are more to collect and of course wants them all!
The boys are completely obsessed with these super vehicles. They genuinely are. When I first saw then I thought they might be a little young for Lamb, who will be 6 in March, but I was totally wrong!
Bear loves the flashing lights and sounds, and Lamb loves the fact they are Superhero themed. He’s spotted the Flash version on the back of the box and is DESPERATE for that one from Father Christmas.
The retail prices are totally reasonable too. The smaller Mash Machines are only £7.99 each which I think is a fantastic price. The Signal Squad is £12.99, again, a really good price. And for a bit more you can get the Bat Racer for £24.99.
So even if the more expensive of the collection is out of your price range, the smaller vehicles are much more affordable.
I can honestly say I’m really impressed with the Herodrive range. It’s so nice to have a toy that BOTH the boys can genuinely play with and share. Luckily they have 2 each so there’s little bickering!
If you have a little one to buy for this Christmas who loves DC Super Friends and vehicles, then this is the toy for them.
And if I was to give them some constructive criticism? Bring out a ‘girl’ version too! Supergirl and Catwoman would be amazing. Girls play with cars too (I certainly did when I was little!)
You can buy the range from Amazon, but it will also be available in Hamleys and from February will be in store in ASDA.
