The Imaginext Monsters University Monster Row playset from Fisher-Price brings the world of Monsters University and the fun of racing Archie the Scare Pig through the quad to life for little fans. Place the Mike figure on differed platforms throughout the playset to activate different quotes from Mike and pretend to chase the pig in different ways. Place Mike on the lower platform to make the pig spin around the pole or press down on Mike on the top platform to launch Archie through a trap door and into his cage. Spin the playset around for two additional levels inside for play.
We think the playset offers a lot of features that really let a child's imagination run wild. We especially like the sound effects, which add a surprise element since you never know what Mike might say next. We also like that as preschoolers use the different features of the playset they are also learning the basics of cause and effect in the process, by playing with one part of the playset to activate another feature.
The Imaginext Monsters University Monster Row playset is for ages 3-8.
Two AA batteries are included but they operate the toy's in-store try-me features. We suggest replacing them for the best play experience.
Launching Archie through the trap door, unfortunately doesn't work very well. You need to launch the pig at the exact right angle to backboard off the "We Rule" sign and go down the trap door. And if an adult has trouble doing it. It's likely not going to be easy for a three-year-old either.
