Bob the Builder R/C Super Scoop Review (Fisher-Price)

Bob the Builder R/C Super Scoop
What It Is

The Bob the Builder R/C Super Scoop from Fisher-Price, a talking, motorized 18-inch digger vehicle with a remote can be activated in three different ways once the On/Off switch underneath the vehicle is turned to On. The easy-to-use remote features four buttons to help Scoop move forward, backwards, and do cool tricks. Press the button for stunt mode to see Scoop prop himself upside down, balancing only on his front bucket, and hear him sing two different songs, one of which is a kid-friendly version of "The Roof is on Fire" altered to "The Scoop is on Fire". Press the bucket button for digging action. To activate lights, sounds, and hear Bob the Builder's voice, along with iconic Scoop phrases, press the B button on Scoop's roof. The exhaust lever raises the front bucket and activates digger sounds. This electronic vehicle is for ages 3 and up.

Is It Fun?

Fans will love hearing Bob the Builder's voice as well, as he gives Scoop instructions on what to do. The four-button remote is easy for even young children to use. Stunt mode is especially cool when Scoop props himself upside down, balancing only on his front bucket, and sings a funny, kid-friendly version of the Rock Master Scott & the Dynamic Three song, "The Roof Is on Fire", with the lyrics changed to "The Scoop is on Fire".

Who It’s For

The R/C Super Scoop is for Bob the Builder fans, ages 3 and up. It would also be fun for kids who enjoy vehicle play with cars and trucks yet may not be familiar with the character. It offers a fun way to introduce them to Bob and his friends.

What To Be Aware Of

Four AA batteries are included with the vehicle but should be replaced before playing with the toy at home for best results. The remote requires two AAA batteries, which are not included. An ON/OFF switch is located underneath the vehicle, and must be turned on to activate any of the functions. The R/C Super Scoop can be activated using the remote, pressing the B button on Scoop's roof, or lifting the exhaust lever.
