Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Mutagen Ooze Ooze Launchin’ Leo Review (Playmates Toys)

What It Is

Ooze is the mysterious substance that transformed Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello from pet turtles into heroes in a half shell. And now kids can play with the ooze compound with new Mutagen Ooze Action Figures. Mutagen Ooze Ooze Launchin' Leo comes with a backpack and scoop so that kids can load the backpack with Mutagen Ooze and fling it at the bad guys. The figure comes with three plastic ooze pieces. The Mutagen Ooze compound is sold separately.

If using the plastic pieces, place one into the scoop on the backpack and quickly flick down the catapult arm to launch the plastic piece. If using Mutagen Ooze, load a small amount of ooze into the backpack's canister. Then push down the plunger to squirt a pea-size amount of ooze into the scoop. Quickly flick down the catapult arm to launch the ooze.

Kids can carry Turtles' weapons from other figures (sold separately) in the weapons rack on the side of the ooze backpack.

Is It Fun?

The gooey texture of the ooze makes it fun for kids to play with, and they'll enjoy being able to incorporate the Mutagen Ooze into their imaginative Turtles play.

It does take a little skill to be able to launch the ooze. Some of our attempts launched the ooze backward so that it landed on us, while other times the ooze landed on the Leonardo figure. When we were able to send the ooze flying forward (away from us and the action figure), the ooze traveled between one and two feet, which was pretty impressive. The amount of force and speed you use to launch determines how well and how far the ooze will fly. Figuring out the right amount of force and speed is part of the play.

Who It’s For

Ooze Launchin' Leo is for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans ages 4 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

After use, it is recommended that you clean the ooze spout with the included pick. The pick can be stored on the side of the backpack.

Ooze is a non-toxic, water-based compound that picks up easily from hard surfaces. It is not recommended for play on carpet.

Additional Mutagen Ooze figures include Ooze Chuckin' Mikey, Ooze Tossin' Raph, and Ooze Scoopin' Donnie. Each figure is sold separately.
