OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Surround yourself with all the latest superhero gadgets in the Imaginext DC Super Friends Super Surround Batcave. It comes with 13 accessories and five exclusive action figures of Batman, Robin, The Joker, Catwoman, and Mr. Freeze. Plus, there are more than 200 sounds and phrases, dual speakers, and interactive multi-color lights.

You can activate different play modes from the Bat-computer. Press the Alfred button for sounds and phrases, the news report button for newscasts, and the six villain buttons for information about the villains. And any time you turn the suit storage or a jail Power Pad, you'll hear more sound effects and phrases.

If you press a villain's button three times, you'll hear him break through the security system and take control of the Batcave. Now when you turn the suit storage or the jail Power Pads, you'll hear those villain's phrases. You can either press another villain's button three times to have someone else take control or press the Alfred button to restore the Batcave's security.

Along with activating sounds and phrases, the Power Pads also activate motion features, such as launching projectiles, opening doors, and more.

Is It Fun?

Kids are going to love all the different elements in this Batcave, perfect for inspiring a lot of action-packed superhero play. On its own, this comes with a lot of figures and accessories for playing out superhero stories right out of the box. The lights, sounds, and phrases - from both the good guys AND the bad guys - is a wonderful addition that brings the action and characters to life. And the size of this playset is enough to make kids feel like they're really sitting inside the Batcave.

What To Be Aware Of

This requires four C batteries, which are not included.

It took us 15 minutes to assemble this, and while the instructions were pretty easy, you really need to pay attention to the pieces you're putting together. The QR code that is supposed to take you to instructions didn't work at the time of this review.

There are two levels of volume.
