  • It comes in a handy zip-close carry case, which my son had no problem opening and closing himself
  • Unfortunately with the Spud Lightyear toy, the pieces were very fiddly to attach to the body, and even now after quite a few uses the holes are rather stiff for small hands to attach and take out the various accessories

      My two and a half year old son recently received this toy as a gift, and instantly loved it as he is obsessed with the Toy Story trilogy!

      The recommended age for the toy is 2+, so ideal for my son. It comes in a handy zip-close carry case, which my son had no problem opening and closing himself.

      The set comes with a 5-piece Buzz Lightyear outfit, along with


      numerous interchangeable eyes, noses, mouths etc. The pieces fit into various holes on the ‘body’, which is hollow and has a compartment at the back to store some of the pieces (note: not all the pieces will fit in, so the carry case is essential to keep all the bits and pieces together!)

      When it came to my son playing with the toy for the first time, the drawbacks of the toy became apparent. He is a very independent boy, and doesn’t usually want me to help him, rather he enjoys exploring new things by himself. Unfortunately with the Spud Lightyear toy, the pieces were very fiddly to attach to the body, and even now after quite a few uses the holes are rather stiff for small hands to attach and take out the various accessories.

      The buzz lightyear outfit in particular is awkward as it has to go on in a certain sequence, be held in place by one hand whilst trying to attach the arms which holds it in place. Even I struggle to keep it all aligned when he asks me to do it for him!

      The toy has a lot of potential, and the different combinations could keep a child entertained

      for a reasonable amount of time. However, either the suggested age needs to be changed or the quality of the parts needs to be better regulated to accommodate the small hands that play with it. Constant supervision is required with this toy, and my son gets very frustrated that I have to put it together for him all the time, as opposed to being able to do it himself.
