If you have a child the same age as Little Mr A I am sure you will have heard of the online gaming phenomenon Roblox? Whenever Little Mr A gets his technology time, 9 times out of 10 he will ask to play on Roblox. Having looked over his shoulder a few times when he is playing I really don’t see the appeal, however, it seems to be all his class are talking about – I am officially old!
Little Mr A was therefore delighted a couple of weeks ago when a selection of the brand new Roblox toys arrived for him to have a play with. Now he doesn’t have to wait for his technology time to play Roblox, he can have his own adventures anytime!
The new range of character toys all have mix and match parts so that you can create your own, unique, characters. The toys are based on some of the most popular characters and games from Roblox and Little Mr A instantly recognised the selection we received.
There are a small selection of individual characters available together with a couple of larger play sets, like the High School set we received.
As well as these there are also, of course, mystery figure packs available with 40 to collect in Series 1.
The toys are aimed at children aged 6+ which I would agree with. There are some small parts when you pull them apart to mix and match. Also, I would imagine that a lot of children under this age would probably not recognise the characters anyway, unless they have older siblings that play Roblox.
I thought the quality of the toys was OK, and acceptable for the reasonable price. They are very plasticy, however, seem to be fairly strong. Little Mr A has been pulling them apart a lot to change them around and they seem like they should stand up to a fair amount of play.
It is nice to have a toy like this aimed at the older child. Although Little Mr A probably wouldn’t admit to it, he does like some of the girls’ small world play toys so it is nice for him to have something that feels more grown up for him to play with.
We would recommend the Roblox toys to any fan of the game. It is a good way to get older children’s imagination and play ignited without the use of technology!
Disclosure – We received the toys featured free of charge in return for our honest review.
