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

Donnie is ready for some mini mutant action with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Mutants Donnie's Lab playset. This mini playset looks like a pet turtle with Donnie's purple mask, but open it up to reveal a mini playset of Donnie's lab complete with one-inch figures of Donnie and Fishface. Donnie comes with his Bo Staff.

The playset features two turning dials for mixing and matching pictures of mutants, a flip-up door that reveals a secret chamber, and a pop-up computer. There's also a fold-down sewer door entrance and a swing-out platform on which you can attach the cannon. The cannon comes with two projectiles, and you just pull back on the lever and release to fire one projectile at a time. The cannon can also be attached to a sewer lid base for use off of the playset.

For battle play, attach Donnie and Fishface to the two platforms and turn the dial back and forth to make the platforms turn and make it look like the figures are fighting. 

The playset also has an extendable tunnel so you can attach it to other Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Mutants playsets, sold separately.

Is It Fun?
For being such a small size, this playset does pack a decent amount of action play for young Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans. They'll like the cool look of the playset folded up, which itself offers some imaginative Turtles roleplay, but they'll also like creating battles between Donnie and Fishface when they unfold the playset. The turning battle platforms are a nice touch and make it easy for kids to make the small figures fight. This will engage TMNT fans in a lot of open-ended, narrative-based play.
Who It’s For

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Micro Mutants Donnie's Lab playset is for ages 4 and up. TMNT fans will have fun playing out action-packed battle scenes between Donnie and Fishface. This offers open-ended, narrative-based play for imaginative Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans.

What To Be Aware Of

All of the parts fit back inside the playset when playtime is over.

Additional Micro Mutants playsets include Raph's Rooftop, Leo's Dojo, and Mikey's Skate Park. Each is sold separately.
