Editorial Review

Kindhearted but noisy, Harold the Helicopter likes to drop in on the Island of Sodor to visit his railway friends. This 4-inch sturdy wood helicopter is white with a sleek red racing stripe above his name. With a rotating propeller and plastic landing pontoons, Harold is ready for action. Based on the popular Thomas the Tank Engine series by Reverend W. Awdry and the PBS television show Shining Time Station, this flying fellow is part of the much-loved wooden railway system, which is compatible with other magnetic train sets. You can reenact all the exciting stories in the series or make up new ones. Thomas fans won't want to miss out on any of these fun, well-built railway characters. --Emilie Coulter ... Read more

Lots of fun, but easily broken
My 3 year old son did chores around the house to buy this toy himself. We were very disappointed when one of the rotors broke off within a month. I was with him when it broke. He was not doing anything rough with it. He didn't even drop it. We did not realize there was a guarantee. We've glued it back together at least 10 times. I don't know if that voids the guarantee or not.

Otherwise, it is a great toy. My son carries it all over the place. He says it is his favorite.

I guess the older propellers work better
I've noticed a bunch of complaints regarding the proplellers on Harold the Helicopter. My Harold is over eight years old and it still has his propellers in fine working order. My problem with Harold is the fact that there's not much to do with him. The new hospital track gives him a place to land but he gets boring quickly. Still a good buy though.

love it!
My son has this toy. He loves it. The plastic rotors keep breaking off,(we are on our 3rd Harold and have to get a 4th now.) I have had a hard time trying to find out who to contact for replacement now that the company has switched hands.

Harold's propellers break easily
I have a normal active three year old boy, who loves his Harold. However, the propellers are made of a hard plastic that snap if they are stepped on or smacked around - hard to avoid with a 3 yr old boy! Thank goodness for the lifetime replacement guarantee - that's why I continue to buy this brand. Harold has been replaced twice - my son thinks he goes to the repair shop! Overall the Thomas wooden train system is incredible, but like any brand, it does have it's glitches.

Great toy but breaks easily
My kids have several Thomas toys from Imaginarium and they LOVE them. This one is the least durable of the bunch. 2 blades have broken off of Harold, so his flying is a little lopsided these days. I think they need to try another approach for the blades. ... Read more

Fun and Durable
These are just great. Four 12-piece puzzles made out of very durable materials (see Pros below). The sturdy wooden box has four compartments under a sliding lid. Each of the four puzzles are theme related. These four are Fire Truck, School Bus, Steam Engine, and Jet Airplane.

Pros:
Easy but not too-easy puzzles.
Pieces fit well together.
Nice pictures.
Sturdy container.
Each puzzle has a different shape printed on the back to make sorting the puzzles easier.
Super durable. I did not realize just how durable they were until I found a piece in my dishwasher. Even after being washed the picture was fine and the wood in perfect condition.

Cons:
It may take a few moments to figure out how to fit an entire puzzle's pieces in a single compartment.
Lid does not lock closed.

My kids love these and you will too.

falls apart, and difficult to fit all the pieces in the box
My 2.5 year old son received this toy for christmas. Not even two weeks later, we have already had to fix four of the puzzle pieces. The pictures are coming off the "wood". The wood is more like layers of wood (reminds me somewhat of cardboard), which is probably why they are falling apart so easily. As another reviewer mentioned, it can be difficult to get the pieces apart after the puzzle has been put together, which also can be contributing to the layers of the pieces coming off. Also, it can be difficult to slide the cover back on, unless all of the pieces are laying a certain way in the box. This can be time comsuming for an adult to do, and nearly impossible for a two year with no patience. Overall, I like the theory of the product, but I doubt that it will last much longer unless we stand by with a bottle of glue at all times. I am most upset about the poor quality of the product since I gave several of these as gifts over the holidays. It is embarrassing to give a child a gift that turns out to be junk.

What a great deal!!
My one dissapointment is that the puzzles are much smaller than they appeared to be in the picuture when I bought this product.

My two-year-old doesn't seem to mind though.

Otherwise, this is a great deal. This is the next logical step for the 2-to-3 year-old who likes peg puzzles, especially the ones where there is a single image divided up into pieces, and especially if you've got a little guy who lives for fire trucks, school buses, airplanes, and choo-choo trains!

I love Melissa and Doug!
Their puzzles are well-made and hold up to my little 3-year-old puzzle fanatic. My ONLY criticism of this set is that the box is completely unreasonable for a child of 3 or 4. (The lid is hard to open and the compartments in the box are only barely adequate. As a grownup I got frustrated trying to fit them back into the box! A child needs to be able to chuck it in and put it away without a lot of assistance or all the need for meticulous fiddling.)

In general I love their puzzles and toys, but this is the second time when a box has only barely fit its contents without any additional space.

SO great, especially for the price!
My son is 2-1/2. He loves this puzzle set. It's 4 puzzles in 1 for just $9.99. What a deal!! He loves playing with them because of the fun pictures. They're totally durable. And best of all, they're totally educational. He can build most of them on his own and can sort them (using the shapes on the backs of the pieces) and put them away when he's done. Much more fun than a regular wooden puzzle. And a little more advanced for the kiddo who's inbetween wooden puzzles and cardboard puzzles. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Chuck Yeager never had it so good. With this 3-D, swept-wing airplane kite,anyone can try for the sound barrier. The Sabre Jet monoplane kite has a 55-inch span,green wings, and a 38-inch black fuselage.Round openings of 3.5 inches at the nose andtail fill the kite with wind to keep it aloft. Bending struts keep the frame rigid and givethe body a pleasing upward curve. The Wind Spinner tail stretches out several feetbehind. A winder/handle and flying line are included. But do you have the Right Stuff? --Richard Farr ... Read more

Does the color matter to you?
I haven't taken the kite out of the package yet, as I may be returning it--I'll take the previous reviewer's stars at face value and just repeat them here, since I can't post a review without them. The item advertised, and selected as a gift by my nephew, is green and black, but the one I received is red, white and blue--great for the times, of course, but not the colors he expects and thought were so cool. If my nephew likes the colors anyway, I'll keep it. But if the colors will be different from what is advertised, that ought to be stated somewhere in the copy--especially if there is no opportunity for the buyer to choose.

This is a KITE!
We bought this kite for our son for a vacation in Aruba - average daily wind speed 20 mph. The kite performed beautifully in very harsh wind - and came with a grip comfortable enough for our 5 year old to use. It traveled well, too. They sure don't make kites like they did when I was a kid - and thank goodness for that! ... Read more

bad toys!
I bought this toy 2 years ago. It looked great put together, but broke the first time I flew it. Good thing it came with a second set of wings, but they broke too. I ordered replacement wings and they broke. So, what I am getting at is, don't buy this unless you want to keep buying replacement wings. ... Read more

Editorial Review

There will come a day when kids just won't believe that we had to wind up our toy airplane propellers with rubber bands. Hastening the arrival of that fateful milestone are the E-Chargers Flying Machines. This flying machine draws its power from four AA batteries in a handheld charger. Just pop the 8-inch-long foam plane on the end of the charger, listen to its motor rev and watch its propeller spin, then 10 seconds later you're ready to fly. You can get some really good flights out of this bird--the only downside is waiting the recommended two minutes between flights for the charger to cool down. Styles and colors may vary.--Paul Hughes ... Read more

Doesn't even match a Happy Meal Toy
I bought this for my nephew, and never got to even fly it! I loaded the batteries, connected the charger, and that was it---the charger would not charge nor come off---D* near broke it in half trying! Can't wait to return that trash.

Sweet little flyer
Bought this for my son who has ADHD. He loves the little plane. It works great! I know it won't last long since it is is foam rubber and my son is not gentle but for the money, it was something to try. Now I know he enjoys flying planes and can handle it. I recommend this toy for other parents to try on their children, as a first time plane.

cool flight patterns
This little plane does some real cool tricks all on its own. by throwing it down toward the ground, it then takes straight up and does a hammerhead stall before it glides back to earth. The one problem I have run into is the durability. I have gone through two palnes and haven't really played with it much. The propeller broke on the first one and on the second, the gears seemed to have stripped.

This is a geat toy
I bought this thinking alright, for $... it will crash and burn. NOT AT All! This was probally one of the funnest toys I have ever purchased plus it doesn't brack the first time using it! Hours after hours of rechagable fun! You have to buy!

Great cheap FUN
I bought this plane for my 6 year old son. We had great fun with it. However, it crashed hard and the propeller broke. We were able to find a replacement propeller for $1.25 at a hobby shop. The plane flew well, did cool tricks, (Rolls, Loops and Crashes) until my 9 year old stepped on it. Since it's made out of foam, it was a wreck. But hey, for $10.00 it was a great toy for the money. ... Read more

Put together a mere 1,700 pieces in the right order, stick on apage or three of decals, and you're the proud owner of a 3-foot modeldepicting the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Kittyhawk. The detailed, wordlessinstructions run to 56 pages. Eight one-piece F-14 jets are included toadorn the flight deck. Finished? Not quite. Without telling you how tomake them, the instructions also tantalizingly illustrate both an oiltanker and a cruiser that you can make from the same parts. --RichardFarr ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Huge, Accurate and High Quality
I bought this set for myself (I'm 30), as I've always loved block building sets, and also built many aircraft carrier models when I was younger. This set is pretty accurate with respect to the actual design of the Kittyhawk and carriers in general (although the decal instructions have the main "63" on the top deck turned 180 degrees the wrong way).

Structure is acceptably durable and the set is easy to build. You can pick the whole thing up and move it around without being too gentle with it. Pieces come in different bags by type so they're easy to find, and the instructions are extremely clear.

Pieces fit precisely and I didn't have any problems with fit or alignment. Color consistency is great. Kit was complete, and had some surplus bits, too. There are a couple of extra name decals in case you mess up the first ones. A few of the small pieces come on little plastic "trees" like plastic model kits, so you might want to help your child by using an Xacto knife to trim them.

It comes with 8 F-14 jet fighter planes that are also accurately designed. The elevator platforms on the ship even work and there is some internal space for storage!

And this kit is HUGE when it's finished; about 3 feet long. Really impressive ... a deal. Picture here doesn't do it justice. A LEGO set of the same size and volume would cost $125.00 easily, plus you'll have a bazillion light gray bricks when you're done. You won't be disappointed!

The USS Kittyhawk
(...)
Very good model of one of the Naval Fleet's largest Aircraft carriers. The USS Kittyhawk is memorable and filled with fun. The time it takes is at least 6 hours to build. It's not hard to make just hard trying to find the pieces for that step. You could also add it to a Abrams tank, Tactival Fighter, and a Destroyer to make your own army. Get a bucket of legos and build an enemy base to defeat. It provides days of fun for you and a few friends. Thank you for reading.

the best ship in the world
i got this model 4 x mas & i also got the sea wolf. i built it in about 3 weeks & i built the kittyhawk in less than 24 hours. i had 2 build the first 1/2 2 times because if fell. so if u dont like 2 spend alot of time on models buy this model.

If MegaBloks were a lady I'd marry them!!!
This is going to be a review of 4 different MegaBloks sets (The Kittyhawk, Seawolf, Destroyer and Battleship). A friend intorduced me to MB's one day when we were talking about me building an Aircraft carrier out of that 'other' block building comany.

I called the company, asked a few questions only to find to my horror that the Battleship was out of print, the Kittyhawk and Seaworlf were hard to find and the Destroyer was thankfuly still easy to get. What happend over the next month was maddnes.

I bought 1 Battleship (from eBay), 1 Seawolf, 3 Kittyhawks, and 5 Destroyers.

I put the Kittyhawk together in about 8 hours over three days. It was fun and got the ideas flowing in my head. After I bought the other sets I made my own USS SARATOGA (CV-3) using the MB instructions and altering them as I went. After that I built various Navy ships using the sets I had. While still keeping the Kittyhawk and Saratoga together.

The educational value is that any kid that puts these together, I would hope want to leanr more about the ship they are building. The Kitthawk looks more like the Enterprise to these eyes but it's all good. For those that are wondering the USS Kitty Hawk (CVA-63) is the the Navy's oldest active warship, built in 1956 and launched in 1960.

If you are still reading this, I must say while I was brought up a Lego kid, I prefer MB's due to the mass quantity of bloks in their sets. As I write this I have ordered one more Kittyhawk, Seawolf and probably going to get a few more Destroyers.

I just finished the USS CONNECTICUT (BB-18), but had to take apart the others to do this, however it was worth it.

As and end note, I'm 31 and still building.

the best ever
This toy gives me so mutch fun to do. I't keeps me busy maby for houres,days, or months. I am a pro builder I have 7 of the mega blockes pro builder toys. It's so easy for me now. And that I love the toys. I just can't wait to get anotherone. These toys are just so fun I'd relly rate these a 10. That's how fun they are. ... Read more
