EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Raphael is full of action-packed adventure, and even moreso with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Mutants Raph’s Train & Battle Playset. It may look like a 9.5-inch Raphael action figure, but it opens up to reveal a micro playset with lots of training and battling areas, plus two Micro Mutant action figures of Stealth Ninja Raph and Tiger Claw. 

Open Raph’s turtle shell to reveal four battle platforms. Place the action figures on the platforms and move the lever back and forth to make it look like they’re battling. There are also opening jail doors with compartments for keeping the bad guys, and a trap door that leads a figure off of the playset.

Then, flip up the action figure’s head, pull down on the front of the figure, and open up the feet to reveal even more play space. Where the back of the playset is for battling, the front of the playset is where kids can help Raphael train. There’s a kid-powered elevator in the head, and a rock-climbing wall, a boxing bag, a gymnastics training bar, and a punching bag, plus a pretend weight training station on the fold-out front panel. Use the trap door to take the slides in either of the figure’s legs down to a jail cell or to the Kraang target practice area. Here is where kids can practice their aim with the included cannon and three projectiles. Or hop off the playset by climbing down the ladder.

And everything can be folded up and stored inside the action figure when playtime is over.

Is It Fun?
This playset has a lot of fun surprises for kids to discover as they play. And opening and unfolding all the features is pretty easy for kids to do. They’ll like the dual playset sides so that they can play out some Turtles training and battling, just like what they’ve seen on the TV show. And, of course, kids can play with the Raphael action figure when it’s all folded up, too. This is sure to inspire a lot of action-packed, open-ended, narrative-based play for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans.
Who It’s For
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Mutants Raph’s Train & Battle Playset is for ages 4 and up. TMNT fans will really like the imaginative play they can have with this two-in-one action figure and playset.
