This is meant to be a sort of follow-up to my previous BanBao review. It occurred to me that I may not have done a good job describing how the “ToBees” are put together, so I hope to illustrate their construction now. Let’s crack open the box first.
The car is pretty disappointing. I think it’s supposed to be like a 4×4 ATV, but it looks more like a riding lawn mower. The wheel hubs are smooth, giving the tires nothing to grip. Consequently, the tires easily slide off the hubs.
You can see in this exploded view of the ToBee that the head is basically a bead that the neck post threads through. The helmet caps off the neck post.
I suppose if there’s one standout piece in the set, it’s the walkie-talkie. It’s considerably more detailed than its Lego counterpart. Unfortunately, it’s not in scale with Lego minifigures.
This set has a ludicrous MSRP of USD$3.99. I would say it’s worth maybe a quarter of that amount, which is about what I paid for it. Anything higher than that would be outrageous.
