Little Man couldn’t have been happier than when the new range of Bob the Builder Toys from Smoby arrived for him to review. He’s the perfect age for Bob the Builder and although he loves the show, up until now, he hasn’t had any Bob toys so this was really exciting for him.
The main part of the delivery was the Bob the Builder Workbench. This is a really substantial toy but it does need quite a lot of putting together. It took me about 45 minutes to put the workbench together, add the stickers and detach all the accessories from the extra mould pieces.
Once constructed the workbench is really sturdy and has a good amount of storage space – usually an issue with these sort of toys. It comes with so many screws, nuts and pieces to fix together as well as tools and is a fantastic toy for being creative as well as builder themed role play.
Our delivery also had a Bob the Builder dress up set which included a hard hat, shirt and coverall combo, spanner and phone. Little Man loved this part of the delivery and has worn it daily since – even wearing it to pick LP up from school!
The hard hat was a bit tight – with an adjustable section to fit smaller heads, but we took the adjustable part out and it fits Little Man perfectly now. The costume is a good size too and will fit Little Man for a year or more.
Little Man loved his new Chainsaw and Jigsaw. Both having electronic parts and make realistic noises when they’re used – the jigsaw even lights up when you push down on it.
These are perfect for making Little Man really feel like he’s building and he loves using them – usually to try and cut up furniture around the house!
Lastly, the delivery included a Bob the Builder Tool Bag which is a cute backpack filled with tools. It includes a motorised screwdriver, spanner, hammer and saw – all with their own section of the backpack.
Little Man loved this tool set and enjoyed getting everything out, packing it away and carrying it along with him.
