Bladez Toyz Radio Control Inflatable’s : Review
Our next review comes from Bladez Toyz and their fab new range of Radio Control Inflatables, recommended for children aged 3years+. There is quite an extensive range of characters to choose from, from children’s favourite films/programs such as Star Wars, The Good Dinosaur, Minions, Teletubbies, Peppa Pig, Cars and much more, there is certainly something for everyone here.
For our review I chose two characters which really do appeal my children at the moment, we have Baymax from Big Hero 6 and Dory from Finding Dory.
These are remote control characters we have never seen before as they are fully inflatable and stand on motors with built in sound effects. Baymax, when inflated, stands at 81cm tall (just under 2 foot) where as Dory will be about 45cm tall.
Included in the box are the characters (deflated), the bases and remotes. For Baymax we had to put the base together with the stabilising wheels and then attach the base our-self to the bottom of the inflatable prior to blowing him up. Where as Dory came with her base attached as she is smaller and also doesn’t require the stabilising wheels.
The base for Baymax is easy to attach and once in place you can proceed to pump him up to stand unsupported, you have to also pay particular attention to which way you are attaching the base too ensuring that the “front” is facing forward otherwise Baymax will go in the wrong direction. Baymax requires 4xAA batteries in the base and 1x 9v battery for the remote (batteries not included), with these in place you can switch Baymax on and begin playing.
As Dory’s base is already in place all you have to do with her is insert her batteries (4xAA Batteries for the base and 2xAA Batteries for the remote – again batteries not included), with these installed you can begin playing.
Each base from the RC Inflatable range has 3 switch positions, off, on with sound and on without sound. Having the sound on means your character will say various phrases in relation to their character, which has been lots of fun with Lewis and Leah mimicking their favourite characters. Having the sound off but character moving means there will be no sound but your child still gets the fun of controlling their character.
There is also an auto-off feature, perfect for saving battery life. After 15 min of inactivity the device will turn off, to activate it again either press and hold the remote for 2-3 seconds to wake the character back up. Failing that turn the device off and back on again.
The range of RC Inflatables work on a 2.4ghz signal and have a range of up to 30 meters. You can also set up multi player games using your RC’s, which has been lots of fun in our house. To avoid confusion between the characters and their remote controls each character needs to be switched on in turn, allowing enough time for the right controller to be connected to the right character before the next one is switched on.
There are also 2 different styles of remotes which you will receive, depending on the character you choose. There is the 2 pad maximum control remote which came supplied with Baymax allowing us to move him to drive forwards, backwards and turn left or right. Or there is the easy use controller supplied with Dory allowing her to go forwards or spin only.
With our characters set up the kids couldn’t wait to try them out, below is a short video showing you the characters up close but also a short play between Lewis and Leah.
As you can see Baymax even being so tall is quite happy stood up, occasionally he falls but it does take some doing, where as Dory being shorter has no problems staying upright. The kids are very much in awe of their new toys from the Bladez Toyz range, and with so many to choose from with prices varying from £24.99 to £39.99 they are really good value and lots of fun! You have take a good look at the range here.
