Matchbox Cliff Hanger Airport Rescue Review (Mattel)

Matchbox Cliff Hanger Airport Rescue
What It Is

Matchbox introduces a new feature that lets kids "play on the edge." The new Cliff Hanger playsets can be played with on a flat surface, such as the floor or table, but they also attach to the edge of a table, door, or other surface using a secure, built-in padded clamp. Simply slide the playset's non-marking, padded clamp onto the surface and tighten it with the large plastic screw.

The Cliff Hanger Airport Rescue set starts out as a two-level set that kids can play with on the floor or table. Using the playset's clamp, hook it to a door, table edge, or other surface and watch as the hidden third level drops down. The playset features a flip-out helipad and an elevator that goes between levels. One airplane is included. The Airport Rescue playset works with any 1:64 traditional Matchbox scale car, which are sold separately.

Is It Fun?

We love the simplicity, versatility, and opportunities for play that the Cliff Hanger Airport Rescue set delivers. This compact yet play-loaded toy sets the stage for all kinds of exciting rescue and action play for kids. Combining innovative design with lots of creative play, Cliff Hangers takes classic Matchbox play to a new level.
