Who It’s For

What To Be Aware Of

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures, which are sold separately, are compatible with this and other Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles playsets.

There are two sizes of TMNT figures available, and the set works with both of them.

The instructions are incredibly complicated, and since they are only pictures, figuring out which pieces go where is a bit of a challenge. Playmates has posted a video instruction online that may make it easier to do.
