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

Save the galaxy from the darkside of the force with Disney and Hasbro Playskool's BB-8 Adventure Base. This Galactic Heroes 2 in 1 playset when closed resembles the droid BB-8 from the recent Star Wars films The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi. The set includes heroine Rey in Resistance outfit and BB-8 figures, as well as 4 projectiles. Rey has two sets of removable arms, her power up arms and her light saber arms. Young Jedi can create endless scenarios with this amazing expandable playset. Once opened BB-8 houses many cool functions. There's a secret command center, projectile launching cannons, and a trap door to the jail cell. With the press of a button Droid sounds, and Phrases from other Star Wars characters are heard while small screens and lights illuminate. There's a landing platform, ladder and tons of functions for hours of play. This awesome set opens to 17 inches in height and is recommended for ages 3 to 7. When play is finished, the set closes up neatly and kids can still use the BB-8 function. 

Is It Fun?

This set is hours of fun and play. Once opened BB-8 houses so many cool functions. There's a secret command center, projectile launching cannons, and a trap door to the jail cell. When you the press the button on BB-8's head, your child will hear Droid sounds, and Phrases from other Star Wars characters while small screens and lights illuminate. There's a landing platform, ladder and many other exciting features. 

Who It’s For

This is for the Star Wars fan, old and young! Parents will get a kick out of watching their young ones as they explore the world of Star Wars and young Jedi ages 3 to 7 will love creating endless scenarios with this amazing expandable playset. 

What To Be Aware Of

There is some adult assembly required, but it's really quite easy.  Our staff put it together in 20 minutes. 3AA batteries are needed though the play set comes with demo batteries to start you off. Additional Galactic Heroes can be purchased and added to create more adventures as the rebel alliance tries to overthrow the New Order. The only drawback here, is once the set is closed it's quite heavy and without a handle, it might be too difficult for young ones to carry from room to room.
