What It Is
The Planet Orbeez Adventure Park from The Maya Group uses the fun and squishy Orbeez beads and creates an entire Orbeez world with them. Before jumping into the Orbeez Adventure Park though, you'll need to grow the Orbeez first. Orbeez come packaged as tiny, hard pellets that kids can place in water to make them grow into soft and squishy colorful balls.
The set features the small Orbeez characters Ali, her pet pony Clio, and her friends who have stumbled on the adventure park. Using the playset these characters can adventure through the fun and squishy features of the park, such as an Orbeez filled swimming pool, float down and around the Orbeez lazy river and more. Turn on the light under the spiral slide and make Orbeez funnel down the slide. Then pick up the Orbeez with the ferris wheel and carry them around the ride. Or slide down into the pool with your Orbeez characters, which you can place Orbeez inside their heads. When play time is over remember to store your grown Orbeez in the storage globe and snap the Adventure Park closed.
Is It Fun?
As with additional Orbeez sets, we think kids will enjoy watching the Orbeez grow. Their squishy texture also makes roleplaying with the Orbeez characters in the pool and down the slide even more entertaining.
Who It’s For
Planet Orbeez Adventure Park is for ages 5 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Three AAA batteries are required to operate the light feature. They are not included.
The set took about 30 minutes to assemble. Younger kids may need some assistance assembling the playset.
When assembling the ferris wheel in particular make sure the chairs are snapped into place in the right direction so that they hang loosely and spin easily on the wheel to collect the Orbeez.
There are a lot of small pieces to this playset and Orbeez are quite slippery and bounce easily. You'll want to make sure pieces are kept out of reach of younger siblings under 3.
