These flying twirlywoos come in clear packaging so you can see exactly what you are getting and its easy enough to open too, yes my four year old did open it and build it ready. Its simple to build, simply placing the round blade onto the twirlywoos head, then place this within the motor. To work, 3 AA batteries are required and then you simply hold in the two buttons at the back and watching them fly. I found the motor/launcher to be quite large to hold for smaller hands so both hands were required.
As soon as the batteries were installed Jack couldn't wait to get started. Starting immediately within the living room seeing how high and far they would fly before heading out into the garden for some more space. He would hold it in different directions to see if one way or the other would make it fly higher/further than the other, until he figured out the best way.
The overall look of these is lovely, the twirlywoos have lots of features. They are made from bright, colourful plastics which are easy to see when flying around. Also, they withstand a lot and so far seem quite robust, I didn't expect this smallish plastic toy to withhold constantly hitting the floor and constant play but they've held up well. So far, Jacks had hours of fun with these and I know we are in for lots lots more as he continues to play with them most days.
Within the collection all four characters are available to purchase individually each having an RRP of £9.99.
